Now the important part, Sam Weber. Sam is a farmer from Upstate, NY with a passion for BMX. He travels, attends events, and rides when possible. Chances are, you’ve seen him around and possibly even chatted with him before. He’s an interesting guy with a lot to talk about.
The first half of this episode is mostly BMX focused and transitions to farming for the second half, which is a very interesting discussion. Towards the end, Sam starts getting into conspiracy theories, but due to some time crunches, we had to cut that one off and plan on a round 2. If you can’t wait, maybe you’ll have to catch Sam at an upcoming event, such as Swampfest, and ask him yourself.
Without further adieu, Sam Weber:

Tom Beckman has been on the show before, on the No Worries Crew Podcast (Episode 022), but he was pretty sick and didn’t really get to talk much. This time around is different and he’s substantially more alive and mildly more entertaining. We chat a little about the most recent No Worries Crew project, #betterlate, and then focus more on Tom and his photography as Tom Beckman Photo.

In case you haven’t heard the news yet, FBM has closed it’s machine shop and left long-time welder, John Corts, on his own to either move onto other things, or start his own brand. With close to 20 years of frame-building experience, it’s not surprising that he is starting his own brand, simply dubbed ‘Work’.
John doesn’t get into a lot of details about the separation with FBM, so if you’re looking for drama, look elsewhere; but if you want to know what’s next for one of the best frame builders in the industry, click play and go follow what he’s up to at @jcortsmetalworks on Instagram. Also, check back for his website link as that goes live soon!

If you don’t know the name yet, make sure you check out the man on Instagram at @dewdropdrizzle. This cut is (I believe) a 3 hour session turned into a short edit. Its pretty raw, but that’s what we like anyway, right?
This episode of the GrindWorks podcast is with Kevin Czuba, or @misckevin for most of you. Kevin is a mid-school bmx collector and has a creative outlook on riding bikes akin to that era. Give this one a listen and go drop him a follow on Instagram.

I forgot to post this one up here on the site, so here is the 26th episode of the GrindWorks Podcast with Sam Schrage. This was recorded using the Anchor app from cross-country. It sounds a little “phone-call like”, but it essentially was.
This episode is the first one to really have a title along with the interview. Here is “What Really Grinds My Gears”

We’ve fallen way behind on these episodes, but this episode was recorded immediately after episode 024 as a recap of the shows so far. This has been about 2 months since recording, and you can expect some time between now and the next episode.
Anyway, enjoy this one!

This podcast was recorded a month or so ago regarding Current Events at the time. James Yusczyk returned to the show to help me out as a co-host for this one.
We talk about a handful of things, including the move that I (Andrew Vargason) am currently in the process of making to a new house, and therefore new studio setup; jam recap; and whatever else was relevant last month. We wanted to get this one posted sooner, but things just haven’t worked out that way. So without further adieu, please enjoy “Current Events from a Month Ago”.
