Episode 145 - Chelsea Wolfe Revisted
Waaaay back in October of 2017 I started this podcast and my very 1st interview was with Chelsea Wolfe, at that time Chelsea Fiets Godin. While planning my trip down to Swampfest in February I thought it was a perfect time to catch up with Chelsea 144 episodes later. Since our 1st meeting Chelsea met her goal of being an Olympic athlete and earned a spot on Team USA as an alternate, a huge deal! Enjoy the quick check in with Chelsea and also give episode #1 a listen by scrolling back or listening to the repost that I will have up shortly. Thanks for listening!

Episode 144 - Greg Lanthorne W3
"World number 3!" The phrase most commonly heard from Robbie Morales of Cult BMX when he runs into Greg Lanthorne! Why? Because he is the W3 pro from the 1987 IBMXF World Championships in Orlando Florida! Everyone loves an underdog and Greg didn't disappoint. There is much more to his BMX story that spans over four decades. Add in his job at Sparky's Distribution and there was lots to talk about and now for you to hear. The interview with Greg was recorded at Swampfest a few weeks back, what a crazy time! Enjoy the show and look forward to the last of the Florida recordings with Chelsea Wolfe. Always a great conversation with the Florida born Olympian.
Episode 143 - Allie Wolfe
Allie Wolfe may be the sister of a notable freestyler (Olympian Chelsea Wolfe)but she is absolutely her own self made badass! Coming from a family of all BMXers (parents included)Allie decided a bit ago to trade BMX racing with freestyle and has been having the time of her life. Recently she decided to move into her van and work remotely so she can do what many of us would love to do, go cross country and really see what this Stateside part of the world is all about. I give Allie so much credit for remaining as independent as she has always been but accepting help when needed. You never know where she will be as she lifts up her Florida floor mat and heads out to her next destination with a lot of interesting diversions along the way. Coming to a town near you! Enjoy the podcast and please like and subscribe, someone told me I should be asking for that small request.
One last tidbit. Allie will be at the last stop of the @FLBMX skate park, April 15th at the Oviedo Ripping Riverside Park. If you in the area, don't miss it!
Thank you @nagooarts once again for the Podcast announcements!

Episode 142 - Ryan Sher
Another amazing podcast experience was had with the latest BMX In Our Blood interviewee, Ryan Sher. I never stop learning and definitely won't anytime soon because I believe you never stop learning no matter where you are at in life. Ryan had some really thought provoking views on topics such as manufacturing, sponsored riders, events and the next generation of riders among other subjects.
Ryan's role at Sparky's Distribution is pretty cool between his team managing to marketing and quite a few other roles he and others at Sparky's join in on. Interacting with Ryan was nothing but fun and interesting, I was a little jealous when I left there! Imagine a group of people that are all in a workplace for the right reasons and having fun doing it. The staff was also super welcoming, I really appreciated that! Anyhow, give it a listen and enjoy!
**One small correction/addition. When reading off the brands under the Sparky's umbrella I forgot to mention Bone Deth, sorry about that!**
The Sparky's brands also include Subrosa, Shadow Conspiracy, Rant and Shadow Riding Gear.
Don't forget the Road 2 Recovery Jam on July 16th! Put it on your calendars and be ready for the best one yet!
Episode 141 - Bethany Hedrick
Episode 141, Bethany Hedrick!
Bethany was great to have back on the podcast. The last time Bethany and I talked was almost two years ago in my #thebmxinourblood podcast booth during a USABMX Freestyle contest at @woodwardcamp, a contest that Bethany won. She moved on to progress to the point of being asked to join the @gtbmxfreestyle team and also with @odysseybmx and @vans66 supporting Bethany as well, all late last year! We met up at @florideahswampfest a few weeks ago as she was wrapping up a week long trip with @thebloombmx and @gtbmxfreestyle Bethany used her youthful energy to hang out for an hour of rental car air conditioning before heading right back out there to ride more for the cameras of @jeffzphoto and @beabmx Thanks for the time Bethany and congrats on your huge progress!
Stay tuned for another episode coming up next weekend with @ryanwood.stock of @sparkys_usa and their many brands, @subrosabrand, @theshadowconspiracy, @rantbmx, @shadowridinggear and @bone_deth
Big thanks to @nagooarts for the podcast announcement graphics and @jeffzphoto for the Bethany pic!

This is such a great podcast
A great way to stay in touch with our lifestyle/sport
It’s nice to hear from people from my golden years (late 90’s, early 2000’s). After riding and hanging with some of the guests, it’s truly a genuine experience with their personalities. An occasional muffled audio but good overall. -Wally from Baltimore

It would be awesome if you could get Tim fuzzy Hall Matt Behringer and William Prince on
