Dave Moe is the most unique, eclectic guest I’ve had on the podcast, and he and his brother may have had more of an impact on the sport of skiing than anyone else I’ve had on the show. The Moe’s started Powder Magazine, and Dave Moe was the gonzo journalist who traveled the world in the name of Powder. On the podcast, we talk about early Seattle skiing, his “Screw Loose” alter egos, founding Powder Magazine, sales, marketing, travel, and general weirdness. Jake Moe makes a couple of appearances to clear some things up on this history lesson of an episode.

Tanner Hall is arguably the greatest all-around skier of our time. He’s a rare athlete who’s found success in the moguls, in the streets, in the parks, in the X Games, in the backcountry, in the movies, and on the Freeride World Tour. It doesn’t get more complete than that, and the crazy thing is that now, at 40, he’s skiing better than he ever has. While that’s a bold statement, when the new edit, XL drops this week, you’ll know what I’m talking about. On the podcast, we discuss his relationship, his injury list, XL, what the future holds, and much more. Wiley Miller asks the Inappropriate Questions.

Nate Holland is a born and bred Idaho boy who grew up in a log cabin and spent his time hunting, fishing, skateboarding, and skiing and then he found snowboarding, and life changed.
