    George Pappas Jr.

    George Pappas Jr.

    George Pappas was the first Jamie Salter sponsored team rider for Kemper a distinction he earned by placing 8th at the Snwoboarding World Championships in Breckenridge CO. He grew up riding with his brother Chris Pappas, Dave Dowd, Kevin Delaney, and many other legendary pro snowboarders from Colorado and around the world.

    In December of last year when this was recorded George was piecing together his life after serving 5 years of a 13 year sentence for the attempted murder of his girlfriend at the time. Shortly after arriving in prison George enrolled in everything he could to try and spend as little time in jail as he could and luck (which he reminds me is the meeting of preparation and opportunity) landed him in programs that actually reached him and changed his life forever. Now, as we're nearing a year of George being out of prison, he's reno'd a home he's living in into a recovery house. He's qualified to compete in the in World Skate Games slalom events in Argentina by beating  the 8 time world champion Joe McLaren at the Texas Sizzlera few weeks ago. He's in the process of being granted early release from parole. And he's reconnecting with his son Geoy.

    Kris Swierz

    Kris Swierz

    Kris Swierz was a pro snowboarder on the Sims team when the team included Todd Richards, Chris Roach, Terry Kidwell, and Shaun Palmer. Kris competed in halfpipe and eventually landed a solid contract with Liquid Snowboards. He traveled the world with the Ride, Liquid, and 5150 pro team which included more heavies like Brushie, Ranquet, and Rocket Reeves. Kris is now living in Baja Mexico, surfing everyday and running Topia Retreat in Pescadero. When my wife and I took a trip to Mexico in February I made sure to bring a handy recorder to get an interview with Kris Swierz about his life in Snowboarding.

    Jamie Lynn

    Jamie Lynn

    Jamie Lynn is one of the most recognized legends of snowboarding, I mean, the guy's method has it's own Instagram. Jamie Lynn has influenced more pro snowboarders than just about anyone, his pro model on Lib Tech has been going for almost 30 seasons. His pro model boot on Vans in the early 90's was a game changer and he's still on Vans to this day. His Volcom Powder Pajamas are exactly the kind of quirky fun goretex outerwear that showcase what authenticity looks like. Jamie and his partner Dini just had a baby so I'm putting out this older conversation (which I thought I was going to slice into short episodes to pepper throughout the next few seasons) in its entirety right here right now to celebrate! Welcome to the world little baby Lynn.

The Real Boozy

Been listening for three work nights in a row. The Sean Johnson interview is one of the most in-depth talks I’ve ever heard (or read for that matter). From the Whiskey videos to the end of Stepchild, it answered about every question a fan could think of. As well as some insight into the JP Walker controversy surrounding the Video Gangs film. Please follow this up with a Walker interview! Great, great podcast, keep up the excellent work and thanks to Sean for being so open.

Giving a look into the world of snowboarding one podcast at a time.

There has been so many amazing interviews on FNRAD but I must say the most recent one with Donna Carpenter was amazing. Finally some unanswered questions were answered. I’ve always highly respected Jake and Donna and respect them even more now. 🙌❤️🙌
