Let's Poddy with hosts Benji Weatherley and Annie Graziano is the podcast where you will learn absolutely nothing and everything at the same time. Benji might just surprise you with some thoughtful insight in conversations with people he's met on his extensive travels across the globe. So just sit back, relax, and enjoy a laid back conversation with the best kinds of people.
We sat down with Skip McCullough to find out what it takes to be a pro surfer with a day job. Skip is not only an insane charger in the water, but also an insane contractor out of the water. His story is really inspiring and shows how dedicated he is to surfing and doing what it takes to fund his next crazy adventure.
To start off Season 3, Benji and Annie sit down with model, designer, and actress, Rose Machado. Rose talks about her upbringing on a small island called Reunion and how it made her hungry for opportunity when she finally came back to live in Cardiff. Among other things, Rose has since graduated from school, launched a successful modeling career, and launched two clothing collections.
We're also excited to announce our Season-Long partnership with Dark Arts Surfboards! Head to their site darkartssurf.com for their full lineup of shapers and quality boards.

Love how chito has a wide range of friends, enjoyed listening to this and get an insight from different people that he knows. Great podcast and look forward to listening to more of these episodes.
If anyone was ever more suited to host a podcast than Benji….I don’t know who that is. As always this dude is the most entertaining listen, and typically as interesting as any of his guests. A rad mix of action sports, music and art legends. Just a real good one. And a joy to have in the podcast ecosystem. Thanks, Benji.
Benji brings his unique style of humor and storytelling to his podcast. He is insightful and light hearted. I’m a fan for life!!! Enjoy the show!
