Another step out of the box for The BMX In Our Blood, an interview with John Badessa based on his book, Fit2besick. John is a former BMX racer and World Champion from Rhode Island that had the mindset of a champion. As you will learn through the podcast, champions suffer too. When John faced unexplained exercise fatigue after years of endurance spo…
 
It hasn't always been this way but I'm a bit less hesitant with podcast interviews with people I don't know much about. Thankfully people like Chris Childs are out there because he exceeded all of my hopes and expectations by being one of the nicest and most comfortable conversations. Huge thank you to the ever humble Chris for your gift of time fo…
 
Words can't describe the emotions felt by everyone involved in making this happen starting with Jenn Lyman of Foothills BMX. This was quite possibly the most moving experience I have had outside of my family. This was all BMX family in it's purist form. Thank you Roger Plaskett for towing the line and taking our little project to levels neither BMX…
 
Most of what I do in life are spontaneous yet thoughtful moves, this interview with Jane is one of them. I first zoned in on Jane McCarthy's work as an RN during the pandemic when I read a few of her Facebook posts that were, we'll say, written under extreme stress during the late winter/early spring of the rapid onset of Covid. She was accurate in…
 
This was and is a tough one for all to say the least. Roger Plaskett has been an absolute on going legend in Connecticut BMX. His on the track leadership as well as his amazing NBL National announcing is nothing short of amazing. Roger has unfortunately been given the news that he has an incurable illness and most recently two strokes. Roger is a f…
 
Everything you have heard about Ekim King, it's true. He is one crazy dude with more talent and passion than most any two of us combined. There isn't much more I can say aside from what you are about to hear. Thank you Ekim and the Catty Woods crew for your years of hard work. A special thanks to Garrett Byrnes for the call in!As always, thank you …
 
Women's Weekend, a gathering of women from all over the USA and Canada that love BMX trail riding. I love covering this event because of the super positive vibe that goes on there each year. The veterans of women in BMX riding together with those that may have just started, like the unicycle seat woman in the last interview clip! As I have in the p…
 
I don't get too nervous for podcasts interviews as often as I used to in the beginning but Payton Ridenour brought that out of me through being such a well spoken 18 year old with just so many accomplishments! Payton tried hard and patiently to explain the progression levels on the path to Elite Women status within the UCI World Cups and USABMX Nat…
 
Rad Chicks Society, possibly the most important movement going on right now for women looking to challenge themselves with an action sport. The leader of this monumental passion project is none other than Nutmeg State resident, Jessica Nason. Jess is so well spoken and dedicated to her project 200%. Mind you, she covers motocross, mountain bikes an…
 
Part 2 of the Tim Strelecki podcast! I hope you have listened to Part 1 before Part 2 but there is really no wrong direction when listening to Tim Strelecki talk! This entire podcast is amazing but the take away is absolutely toward the end of the interview. Tim mean what he says and we should all pause to ponder what this message may mean to you a…
 
Part 1 of possibly the most amazing subject I have had the opportunity to interview for #thebmxinourblood This is only Part 1 and I'm so grateful that this happened. I lost count of the National and World Championship #1's that Tim accomplished but it is somewhere around 9. Most racers are fortunate to be in the top 10 once nationally let alone wor…
 
Switching things up a bit with Episode 103 and getting back to a BMX racer. There is none better than Shawn Diprete from Massachusetts. Listening to Shawn describe his focus and intensity is pretty amazing. Some pretty important lessons in here for the younger generations as Shawn talks about the importance of staying out of trouble during those im…
 
As much as we joke around on this episode about the amount of free time Jonny Nemecek has to ride, Jonny is way more than that and I'm sure his friends know that. Now you can learn how hard Jonny works to live his life his way after 50-60 hours of work each week as a multi County licensed Master Electrician. Not so coincidentally enough I was waiti…
 
I can't think of many better situations to be in than among BMX riders that are so passionate about what they do that I have no chance of reeling them back in! The Stoneybrook Trail crew in Charlton Massachusetts was just like that. What I wanted most out of this podcast was to capture the joy and determination of this fairly new trail scene. So po…
 
Surprise FBM! Episode #100 was dedicated to FBM a month or two ago but not quite the way the recently closed bike manufacturer may have thought. This episode was created by the FBM community in their words based on a basic question, what did FBM mean to you? You will hear some really consistent answers to this questions and as always, great stories…
 
Although I'm fortunate enough to be able to go to work still, many of you are not. It may be a while before I get back on the road to record my next interview so here is my best improvision based on your questions. The purpose of this episode is for downtime entertainment but also to raise more $ for @bone_deth (Sean Burns) after his major spinal c…
 
This has to be one of my favorite episodes! I know it is longer than usual at 3 hours and 40 something minutes but you have plenty of time to listen as I won't be getting out to record again until Coronagedon blows over. Tom Bivona is a really special mid-school Long Island trail and race guy with the best laugh I've heard since I started recording…
 
Joce Camarra is the epitome of a badass. Somehow the universe aligned and we connected at the 1st (maybe 2nd?) race and beginning of her BMX experience. Jocelyn (@joc313 on IG) is absolutely a different animal. Never before I have seen this type of progression while skipping the traditional steps of learning how to ride BMX racing, trails, park, et…
 
The FBM DIY Championship was the final stop of DIY series and it was everything we all hoped for! Crazy pallet and plywood creations made for this event are a huge part of the fun. Steve Crandall did an amazing job keeping everyone stoked throughout the day and a big reason as to why good things happen if you want them to. All of this fun was accom…
 
One of the many cool things that happen when you go to the XGames is that you meet good people from around the USA as well as the world. I went to the XGames a couple months ago with no intentions of recording anyone, I just wanted to take it in and understand how this made for TV insanity really works. I first met Zach minutes before BMX vert and …
 
There are not many people that fit the title of BMX Legend and All Around BMX Rider as well as Jason Lonergan of Posh Woods. He just so happened to have earned the title of NORA Cup Trail Rider Of The Year as well, a huge honor. (Thank you @ourbmx and @bmx for keeping it going!)I'm extremely fortunate to have had Jason (JBone) trust me with an inte…
 
The 3rd annual Women's Weekend In The Woods was a huge success! This is the 2nd that I have been at and recorded for longer than I ever have. Each woman and young lady had such interesting stories outside of BMX that I found myself doing 20-30 mini-podcasts! It would not be an exaggeration at all to say that the event was filled with riders from al…
 
I can't put all of the fun I had this weekend into words. Mike Gentilcore of TRA BMX put the world on notice. You can build and do anything you can dream of into reality. His event (Double Cross Dirt Comp) was amazing on every level! My original plan of interviewing racers in-between races didn't exactly stick because when you go to events like thi…
 
The real Adam 22 met up with me a couple weeks ago up at Catty Woods before we headed over to the Posh High Air contest (Episode #80). I've had a gut feeling about Adem for some time since meeting him at the Wheel Mill during the 2nd stop of the Uncovered BMX indoor park series in Pittsburgh, PA a little over a year ago. I'm a huge proponent of usi…
 
Spontaneous podcast recording can be difficult when trying to cover a lot of mini-interviews. With that said, the Posh 25 year anniversary with a high air contest was amazing and worked out! I say do it no matter how uncomfortable you may feel getting into the conversation groove, it always works out!This one has lots of rider/spectator interviews …
 
Ian Dowling, 9 year old son of Brett Dowling, is absolutely the most inspirational kid I've had the opportunity to meet. He isn't just a cancer survivor but one of the bravest people I know. I took a quick ferry trip to Port Jefferson, NY this past Friday night to deliver a special gift to Ian and ended up with more than I ever would have imagined …
 
I loved this interview for so many reasons. Lori Armistead of Road2Recovery is as passionate about helping others as I am. I'm certainly the watered down version of Lori (quote stolen from Garrett Byrnes) and love to hear how and what other individuals and non-profits are doing on a larger scale. So for this unique podcast, that coincided with our …
 
5th Annual fundraising jam preview with Nick Caporuscio as we drove to the Road2Recovery event site, Powder Ridge Park in Middlefield, CT. I apologize for the podcast being a bit loud with the sounds of the road, it doesn't last...or you get used to it. If you can't make it there please consider donating to the jam through www.thebmxinourblood.com …
 
Bryan Close is a departure from the norm for The BMX In Our Blood podcast. Bryan is as passionate about so much in life that takes him out of what most would consider their comfort zone. From the challenges of being a street vendor to finding his way around a foreign country, Bryan takes on what most of us wouldn't normally do. So in between all of…
 
I 1st met Aaron Simone when he was 16 and really coming up. I was struck by his politeness and respect. He also has a kind soul that, as you will hear, recognizes the potential of kids that are just getting into BMX and encourages them the best he can. What I most like about Aaron is his determination to travel and experience everything he can by l…
 
The Wheel Mill has been around for what seems like years and years with the amount of work that you see in every room of this Pittsburgh indoor bike park mecca. I've conducted so many interviews in various spots within the building with the most amazing people as they rolled through town. Gary Young, Brian Kachinsky, Mike and Mark Potoczny, Tom Dug…
 
If there is one BMX rider that is living his life the way he wants to it's Mason Ritter. This guy rides like an absolute animal and has a heart of gold. It's no wonder Hoffman Bikes chose him to be on the team a few years ago. What a great choice and one that seems to fit right in with the rest of the team. This podcast is a little different than a…
 
Episode #72 found me in Pittsburgh interviewing during an after work dig session at the Monroeville Trails where you can find everyone in this podcast at one time or another. The interviewees, Zoo (Eric Miller) and Murphy Moschetta, as well as Tim Lyons and Chris Doyle. Chris helped me out big time by sitting in and guiding the questions a bit whil…
 
One of my favorite events of the year, the Next Generation Jam. This was the 6th annual NGJ and it was awesome. Not only did the Halahans, the Wheel Mill crew and the Potocznys put on another great event and the sponsors were awesome. I have to imagine that each 16 and under rider went home with something. On the sponsor level, Subrosa and Shadow w…
 
Jerry Badders of Vans! Having not seen Jerry in over 20 years, I didn't know what to expect. Lets just say that Jerry was very confident. Jerry was a successful BMX racer (a World Champ in BMX racing) that rode for Vans as a sponsored athlete and transitioned into a leader of Vans marketing for North America. That takes confidence channeled in the …
 
The Fids. I think that some of us get to the point in life that we start live the way we want to, not the way we are told to by our peers and society. That point in life for Fids came early on. At the age of 11 he was already going where he wanted to with BMX and skating. Through elaborate schemes and lack of technology in the Mama Fids household, …
 
Here you go, the Jimmy Levan documentary interview! The podcast was recorded the morning after the Go Fast Pull Up premier at Swamp Fest. Not my best work with the questions but still amazing to hear the behind the scenes talk about this piece of BMX history. The documentary was awesome. Do yourself a favor and order a copy from propsbmx.com or dig…
 
John Lee, the nicest guy in BMX becomes one of the most dry guys in BMX as we finish part 2 while the rest of the guys got the trails running. It will be of no surprise to any of you that listened to part 1 that part 2 was just as heartfelt. We spent some time on topics ranging from John's Long Island days, Oak Park Trails, his smoothie diet, the D…
 
FBM's John Lee IS the nicest guy in BMX! Part one of this interview is loaded with emotion as well stories of overcoming trauma through his caring friends and family. There was so much important content to this part 1 podcast that we decided to quit at midnight and finish it up in a few weeks. The questions from you listeners are ready to go! John …
