The Mostly Skateboarding Podcast

Since today is the 8th anniversary of the start of this blog I thought it was a good time to launch the Mostly Skateboarding Podcast. Each episode will feature a skater, filmer, photographer, or other skate industry person telling a story. I always liked riding around listening to everyone's stories when we where going out to skate. I wanted to bring those stories out of the small audience of the car and to the masses. 

Right now the Pilot episode is up. It features Kevin Wilkins, the Editor of The Skateboard Mag. This was recorded and edited back in January so the recommendation is a bit dated, but I still highly recommend the video Megamix

I have a few more episodes recorded and edited but I'm waiting to get one more really awesome story for the first episode. That is in the works and hopefully will happen soon. Please subscribe and let me know what you think. There is a new contact button on the right if you want to email me. You can always tweet at me or hit me up on Facebook, but email is where you are likely to get the quickest response.
