For the first time, Brock & Aaron try a full length movie commentary on the 2012 feature Premium Rush, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They are joined by Adele and (right at the end) Anna, and give their two cents on the film.
Note: if this isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there will be more shows in the style you’re accustomed to soon! Due to the nature of movie commentary, there are many periods of silence in the audio; this show will be best enjoyed by pairing it with the film we watched.
Brock gets into a predicament and can’t make it into the studio. This is an explanation of the predicament. What happens when you can’t find a bathroom? And are there any lessons to be learned from such an experience?
note: those sensitive to conversation about bodily functions may wish to bypass this episode, as it contains many references to such.
Ed Hanna was having beers at the Landmark Saloon in SE Portland, Oregon, when Brock locked up his bike in front of the place. Ed asked him a few questions about his bike setup, and eventually they decided to share Ed’s European bicycle tour stories on the podcast. Spoilers: it’s tricky getting started!
Also: Hi, Jason in Eugene who got Brock’s free bus tickets. Brock breaks his grandpa’s tandem seat post, may or may not have used Uber, and has a scatalogical emergency. Aaron makes toaster granola.
note: Brock fell ill suddenly and I called on Aaron Delani to fill in. I also panicked and didn’t plug in my ipod to the soundboard. this episode will be interesting from a production standpoint.
Brad Davis and Jean Abbot of EcoSpeed were very good sports with the Aarons’ tomfoolery. EcoSpeed is the leading maker of mid-drive type electric assists for bikes and trikes. Mid-drives give more performance for a given motor and battery weight and, unlike hub motors, don’t create drag when you just want to pedal.
