Dana Dane is legendary storytelling rapper from Brooklyn who helped influence me in my formative years.  A chance zoom call with Dane connected us and once that happened, I made it my goal to get him on the podcast.  In the month leading up to recording, so much was happening with race in this country and the podcast talks about Dana’s life and times and how race seemed to play into them.

Chris Grenier is part of a legendary East Coast snowboard crew that includes Scott Stevens, Austen Granger and Chris Beresford.  He pretty much raised himself at Mt Snow Academy, where he met the crew as a young stoner who had a unique style.  Fast forward 20 years and he’s been a pro snowboarder that’s ended video parts, had signature models and X Games Gold.  He had his problems… but they never impacted his pro career and now, he’s sober and killing it.  We talk about it all….

This week I chat with Brian Park form Pinkbike. Pinkbike sets the benchmark for what action sports websites should be. They are a hub that creates amazing content and serves as a sounding board for mountain biking.  On the podcast we talk about the site, the numbers, Brian’s life and times and a look at the Grim Donut.

James Woods is an X Games gold medalist that hails from England.  Let that sit in for a second.  Growing up in Sheffield, , Woodsy, as he’s known, learned how to shred on carpets that resembled tooth brushes more than they did snow…That never slowed him down as he’s proved himself on every level of the sport and has had an impressive career.  This is a fun one with one of the only personalities in contest skiing today.

I have not had too many guests on the show as laid back and chill as Dave Bachinsky...Which is crazy as Dave is known for doing some insane things skateboard-wise but the rest of his life is all about creating and giving back.  But it was not always that way.  On the podcast we talk about his career, inspiration, his side hustle, and a whole lot more.  Another must listen episode…

Marcus Caston’s ski career started in the race world. His goal was the Olympics but he didn’t get close. When he didn't make the college team, he was over it... But skiing is all he knows.  He got back into it through photography, which he parlayed into his first Warren Miller trip and his career takes off. Now, he’s on the other side of the lens and he’s become one of the most photographed and published skier of modern times. It’s a good episode

Dan Egan is a legendary skier who doesn’t get the credit or press he deserves. Dan filmed countless movies with his brother as part of the “Egan Brothers” who stole the show at Warren Miller Moves of the late 80s and early 90’s. Before other “film” skiers were getting paid, Dan acted as athlete, agent and distributor, cashing in on all ends and really being a trailblazer for the non-traditional skier. Not many have done it like Dan Egan.

Josh Dirksen has arguably the best turn in snowboarding and while that turn will define his legacy,  he’s done so much more in the sport.  Josh  doesn’t do that many interviews and has never done a podcast before, until now.  On the show,  we  talk about having 3 passports, coming up in Oregon, the Morrow glory days, Salomon, the Dirksen Derby, and more.   It’s a good one with a living legend.

Alana Nichols’ title, President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, is pretty impressive but the road she took to get to that big desk will blow your mind.  From losing her dad, to growing up with her grandparents, to breaking her back, to a dark place, to gold medal position at the Paralympics, nothing has ever been easy for Alana…And that has never stopped her from doing anything.  Her story is incredible, a must listen. ace, to gold medal position at the Paralympics, nothing has ever been easy for Alana…And that has never stopped her from doing anything.  Her story is incredible, a must listen.

Pat Moore has been a pro snowboarder for over a decade and while he’s done so much in his career, he’s more humble than most who are on the show.  It’ s like Pat doesn’t feel like he deserves everything that has come his ways….and nothing could be further from the truth.  On the podcast we talk about coming up in the pipe, getting on Forum, the end of that chapter, Volcom, X-Games, K2 and more....

Kimberly Plake has been a part of the ski industry for the past 40 years and she’s never done an in depth interview.  Yes, her husband Glen Plake gets all the notoriety but pretty much wherever Glen goes, Kimberly is by his side but she is not just arm candy.  Yes, she is good looking, a Texas Beauty Queen and former model, but she was a skier before she met Glen and now they ski together, forever.  The podcast is a cool look into Kimberly’s life and some things I’ve talked about with Glen…but from a different lens.  Brad Holmes asks the “Inappropriate Questions” and it’s another good one.

Keir Dillon was a fixture on the snowboard scene for over a decade.  You saw him in halfpipes, on podiums, on the mic and traveling the world with his “Frends” crew.  There is so much to Keir’s story and on the podcast we talk about a lot of snowboard success,  the letdown of not making the Olympics, starting a snowboard technology business with friends, taking that company and making it a brand that focuses on women, how the friends reacted to that, why he had to sell the business, drugs, and a lot more.  It’s a good one

Greg Stump has done it all; he spent time on 150 podiums during his ski career, shot with iconic filmmakers Dick Barrymore and Warren Miller, and then, decided to become a filmmaker himself.  This year, Greg Joins Dick and Warren in the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.  I’m willing to bet that Greg is now one of the more eccentric people in the Hall and his unique personality makes for an entertaining podcast that’s strange at times

Julien Regnier is one of the founding fathers of new school skiing.   Before there were twin tips there were pockets of bump skiers wanting to get in the snowboard park and land backwards.  Julien was in that first group that all quit moguls to invent the sport, product, tricks and culture.  On the podcast, we talk about growing up in a ski family of champions, bump skiing, finding a new way to ski, founding Armada, getting fired from Armada, going to Black Crows and more…
