Episode #45 - Colton Civitello has been a little bit of a mystery to me because we only see each other a few times a year at events and haven't had the time to get to know him. Now I have! So interesting to hear how Colton balances his time between his full time job as a machinist and his part time job as a rider for multiple trick teams....and his hobbies of working on his off road trucks and riding quads. I especially loved that he doesn't consider himself a trails guy even though he rips through some of the hardest trails and contest lines. His specialty is park and he is great at it. He has spent lots of time at the Incline Club before it's closure.

Episode #44 - After a wild few weeks leading up to the #FindYourFight Jam, the dust has settled and Joe got a chance to head down to the beach and have a conversation with two of my favorite hometown dudes, Russ Barone and Kenny Hirsch. I've known these kids a long, long time and have seen them do it all. I am personally stoked to listen to this one ASAP. -Brian
Episode #42 - Information about the upcoming #FindYourFightJam and a brief history of the past 5 years and the jams and event that have been put on to benefit some of the best in BMX.
Episode #41 - Chris Hallman; These days he is rooted in midstate NY as a carpenter and caring for the most important priority of his life, his daughter Sylvia. Chris still actively rides and at 46 is riding at a level to be proud of...in running shoes. You will hear that story in this episode. So unconventional sometimes fits as a description of Chris but so does cancer survivor, depression survivor, great father and good friend to many. Enjoy the episode and give him a shout on IG at @hallperson to let him know how much you appreciate him - Joe
