This was a fascinating episode. It was good to hear from Dr. Willing again.

Current takes on old skateboarding would be interesting, maybe. I feel as over the top as some of the 90s stuff was, today's cultural climate is somehow worse. Thanks, internet. You also maybe have to approach history on your own terms in whatever amount works the best for you. The bulk of the last 30+ years of skateboarding is online and that's far too much to ingest in one sitting. Overwhelming, but also handy because you can direct somebody to a specific example very easily.

In regards to people still doing stuff when they aren't very good at it anymore, there are senior baseball leagues where guys dress up in uniform and pretend to be major leaguers on the weekends. It's mostly guys who were OK to very good in high school, but the ages range from 25 to maybe even low 60s. I think things like skateboarding, bike riding, etc. are easier to keep going and feel a part of since they are solo activities not defined by competition.

Could we be sponsored by Venture? They'd only have to send me one or two sets of trucks and that would cover it. I'm old and trucks last me forever.
