A podcast by old-school BMX riders Isaac and Craig. We discuss the history of BMX and Freestyle and how they influenced our lives. You'll hear stories from 80s BMX races, freestyle shows, and interviews with the greats of our sport both past and present. We still ride today and have found a renewed love of our bikes through the big bike 29er bikelife movement.
 
In each episode, we talk with inspiring scientists, thinkers, and other self-actualized individuals who will give you a greater understanding of yourself, others, and the world we live in. Scott Barry Kaufman explores the depths of human potential and tries to get a glimpse into human possibility in every episode.
