An astounding cultural gem.
If you were involved with BMX during any of it’s eras I urge you to listen to this thought-provoking and endlessly interesting podcast. The cultural anthropology surrounding this subculture has never been properly looked at in any meaningful way and this podcast is attempting to do the impossible— explain and investigate how the various disciplines called BMX have developed and what it all might mean.
The topics brought up in this podcast are highly important topics for the bmx community to learn about and know. It’s pretty politically based but knowing how the community functions will not only entertain you but it will deepen your roots in the bmx community. I highly recommend it.
Raw and to the point bmx, I feel this is needed in bmx.
