Episode 200 is a 3-part extravaganza where we revisit some controversial guests and then talk to the best skier of our time.  For this one, I caught back up with John Spriggs to find out about the aftermath of his legal issues and where life is now, but John made me pull that audio.  Next, it’s on to Ben Weis, where we find out if he was able to stay sober…and the icing on the cake is an hour with the most decorated skier medal wise in X Games history and more importantly one of the most stylish skiers of all time, Henrik Harlaut.  Another Style master, Phil Casabon, asks the Inappropriate Questions.  I chatted with Henrik in mid-October and here is the DO NOT MISS Episode 200.
