Styles For Myles Jam: GrindWorks Podcast 053

Myles “Bubba” Roach, 11 years old, was killed on 10/30/2021 at the hands of a school bully. Since this horrific event, his parents, Jordan and Katelyn Roach, have been working on a jam in his memory and working on setting up a non-profit to “put all brakes on bullying”.

This episode is a small glimpse into what happened, how the family is coping with the loss, and how they are using it as motivation to help curb bullying for others and promote BMX and other action sports as a means of averting bullying within their community. They’ve still got a long ways to go in the fight for justice, getting a formal 501c non-profit established, and getting stronger every day.

TBT – Trashfish: GrindWorks Podcast 051

It looks like we completely missed posting this episode on here when it dropped, and it was a really good episode, so why not throw it back and remind you to check this one out again, or for the first time.

Eddie Olschansky, or Trashfish, spends more time fishing trash out of the river from his kayak than he does on his bike these days. Listen in for how this came about and what he’s doing for his local river in Cleveland.

The Lowdown, Part 1: GrindWorks Podcast 052 and New G Spot Wax

Recorded over a year ago, this episode should start to clear things up as to some of the mystery of where we’ve been and what’s been going on. We know there’s more questions, but that’s why this is only part 1…

We also released a new wax, the G Spot, over on the site. You’ll find the link for the wax and some links to check out the podcast on various other platforms as fits your lifestyle after the jump!

A Sign of Life…

Whoa – A new GrindWorks blog post! I feel like it’s been forever, but the at the same time the last year has flown by. There’s been a lot of non-BMX stuff at work in my life lately, and the move from Pittsburgh back to Binghamton has not helped with that, but that’s a story for another time (lightly teases a new podcast episode or two).

I posted the design on Instagram a few weeks ago, but we have a new shirt up on the webstore as of last night! Link to the shirt is here: https://grindworksbmx.storenvy.com/products/36091864-pegging-tee

Verifiably the worst photo crop of my career.

More to come soon…

Two-for-one Special: Episodes 049 and 050 are live!

After a long break between the last few episodes, it feels good to have a few on-deck. But due to the urgency with which I want to get episode 050 out to everyone, I’m dropping both episodes 049 and 050 together.

Episode 049 is a solo-cast recorded while driving from Pittsburgh, PA to Binghamton, NY and discusses some supply chain issues with pegs, hints at upcoming jams, and pitches some alternate podcast episodes that may be on the horizon.

Episode 050 is with Derek Nelson and details some of the headaches he has had with the town where his park, HCS, and fabrication business, Spooky Action Industrial Arts, is located. There’s a GoFundMe, as well as several other links below.

Episodes are after the jump!
