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!

Sam’s BMX Diaper Party

First and foremost, congratulation to Sam and Lindsay on their newborn son, Parker! Parker was born a little earlier than expected, as we were supposed to be having a Diaper Party this past weekend for Sam. While the party was still able to happen, it was cut short from the original plans.

Tyler and AV drove up from Pittsburgh and met up with everyone else at an undisclosed location. We had a little bit of fun with this one since we had to spend hours in the car. It starts out making fun of Vlogs while claiming to be one, then goes into the journey to the undisclosed location, while assuring lots of continuity errors, and then becomes a normal edit. Video after the jump. Continue reading “Sam’s BMX Diaper Party”
