E438x – Anniversary of Montana’s Statehood



One year ago, Aaron turned a year older and a few friends gathered at the studio after a recording to celebrate the anniversary of Montana’s statehood.  Aaron has a special connection to that day, and we wanted to mark the occasion.  Present were Aaron & Anna, Guthrie, Armando, Brock & Adele, and we’re sharing a minimally edited version of a live mic in the room with all of their permission.  You get to be a fly on the wall for this celebration.

New studio show coming later this week.  Enjoys!


E437 – Riding In The Rain with Armando



photo credit: @dudeluna

We return this week to a perennial topic, popular because it is pervasive: riding in the rain.  This edition, Armando brings the bike love and a pizza to the discussion about wet, gear, and drying out.  Also Aaron takes a field trip to a pumpkin patch and Guthrie tries out apple cider donuts.

E436 – JP & Eric Do a Multi-Modal Canoe-Swingbike Adventure



JP and Eric, the Kings of Swing [bike], go canoeing, swingbiking, and bladepacking, and live to tell about it.  We get the scoop on how to take on nature’s greatest force using the minimal set of tools, and have a beer at some of the area’s best breweries like Walking Man, Amnesia & Thunder Island.  Also, who knew there was once a bookstore in Stevenson, WA that had beer on tap?

E435 – E204 REBROADCAST Anna Olsen & Justin Miles: We’re New Here



Our most significant podcast ever!  This content was originally published in October 2014, and it’s so much fun we’re bringing it back! Listen to the flirtation happening between Aaron & Anna when they were still passing notes in the podcasting studio. We’ll be back in a week with another new studio show featuring Aaron & Guthrie.

Anna Olsen used to be a podcast listener from Oklahoma. Now, she’s a guest!  I guess she’ll never have to listen again.  We’re glad to welcome her to Portland after an education at United Bicycle Institute where she learned to be a bicycle mechanic.  Her coworker Justin Miles joins us as well.

Also: Drew lends the rain cape! Brock gives it a first go; the Transportastic studio opener is on 10/25 6:30pm at IPRC! Aaron’s still on drugs, and does a very frugal thing followed by a rather infrugal thing.

Mail

Chris in Chico sends a link to a creative Latvian demonstration of how much traffic cycling can reduce.

Chris is also a new monthly donor! So is Dan G.!

Kurt, whom Brock met in Copperfield on the OR/ID border, sends in pictures of his full suspension mountain bike.

JohnnyK is freaked out by clowns, maybe because of scooby doo’s ghost clown episode.

Ethan G asks how to best tell meddling, uninvited advisors to your bicycling style to “piss off.”

E434 – Darius from Omni: Sharing Stuff



Darius is working with a new way to share your things, and keep them too! Omni started as a storage option for people’s extra stuff, but now is also working to find people who want to rent the objects you think are cool, but don’t use all the time; they’re described as “an on-demand access company for things you don’t use every day, but can’t live without” That margarita mixer & those snowboarding pants just sit unused most of the time, why not put them to work earning money for you and making someone else’s life more interesting, while retaining access whenever you need them?  “Rent what you want now, store what you’ll want later.”  Omni just launched in Portland; Darius breaks it down for us.

Also, Aaron celebrates an anniversary & Brock rents a car.  After the regular segments Brock laments the end of his regular cohosting duties & they both bag on Dave Matthews.

E431 – Norm & Brad Do a Multimodal Commute



Norm & Brad are commuters with a twist: they cover some ground by car from their faraway homes and then transform into bicycle commuters at the state line!  Brad wondered for years who this person was – and, as it turns out, so did Brock!  Norm is the smartest guy in the room, and involved with Bikes For Humanity. We talk commuting tips, raingear, and innovative solutions to traffic bottlenecks.
