2005 Transworld Snowboarding ‘Rider of the Year’ Chad Otterstrom is on the podcast.  When you win an award like that in 2005 and you’re a guest on a podcast, it’s usually a 'where are they now'.  That's not the case with Chad.  His pro shred career is still going and now, he’s a brand owner living that desk jockey life, all while remaining a pro rider.

It’s summertime and in the snow world, that means summer camp.  This week I headed down to Windell’s Camp in Oregon to catch up with longtime camp veteran and TGR athlete Tim Durtschi.  On the podcast, we walk through Tim’s life and times.  Tim is one of those dudes that has no media training and is not afraid to answer anything which makes for an entertaining show and the “Inappropriate Questions” with Andy Parry may be the best yet.

Thomas Vanderham is a living legend in the world of freeride mountain biking and he’s a guy that doesn’t do many interviews.  Over the past 20 years, he’s let his riding do the talking and his riding has said a lot.  I was lucky to get an hour with Thomas to walk through his career, that started when he was just 15 years old.  We talk about how things came into place for Thomas, sponsor changes, filming and a lot more.  It’s another do not miss episode.

Todd Richards has done everything.  He’s a two-time X Games Gold Medalist in the halfpipe, he has hardware from slopestyle competition as well, and he’s pretty much the voice of board sports.  The funny thing is, he never really achieved the dream of being a pro skater and he had to settle for snowboarding.  The history, insight, and stories that Todd brings to the table are awesome and it’s another entertaining show.

Saying Fabiola da Silva is the best, and most underappreciated female athlete of our time is a bold statement…but it’s one that I fully believe.  I can’t think of another case in sport where a woman was so dominant in her field,  that the sport’s organizing body decided to cancel the woman’s event and have the women (Fabiola) compete against the men...And Fabiola did not disappoint, standing on the podium with her peers at some of the biggest events in the world.
