E446b – “This Girl Is Badass” movie commentary



The tradition of the holiday movie commentary is back! Aaron & Guthrie are joined by former show guests Joan & Josh G to watch the 2011 film “This Girl Is Badass,” an action-packed adventure of a bicycle messenger getting involved with dangerous people. This audio is meant to accompany your personal screening of the film! Aaron gives a countdown to help sync the start of your movie. Cheers and happy new year!


E446 – REBROADCAST E201 Tom McTighe



this episode is a rebroadcast of our friend Tom McTighe’s first appearance on the show in 2014!
Hope you enjoy – next week we will bring you another seasonal classic.
Aaron & Guthrie return to the studio in the new year.

Tom McTighe plans and runs events for Puddlecycle, including the charity-minded Portland Cranksgiving coming again this fall.

Alsoe200 live show! I swear this is the last we’ll talk about it, but Aaron Parecki made a sweet video.  Brock yells at brunch-going auto drivers, and Aaron hurts his back.

E445 – REBROADCAST E140 Tim Mooney: Pedalshift



this episode is a rebroadcast of our friend Tim Mooney’s first appearance on the show in 2013!
Hope you enjoy – next week we will bring you another seasonal classic.
Aaron & Guthrie return to the studio in the new year.

Tim Mooney is working on a concept we like: how can you have a “grown-up job” and still pursue bicycle travel?  While he hasn’t found the magic solution yet, he created Pedalshift to begin the conversation among those of us who are interested.  We also discuss Portland’s changes over time, the World Domination Summit, and Tim’s bicycle tour down the West Coast.

Also referenced is Brock’s bicycle tour journal from 2012:
Brock & Adele Go Bicycling

Tim is also a podcast producer for Kimberly Wilson’s Tranquility Du Jourblogger, twitterer, and, of course, a loyal Sprocket Podcast listener.

E444 The Tim Mooney Show!



It’s the Tim Mooney Show!

Tim drops into the trailer on an especially rainy night.  While the compressor plays games with the rain noises, you can listen to the guys talk about comedy, aging, aging comedy, and the comedy of aging!  Tim went to Seattle, they talk about a bunch of movies and television, the nature of silence, touring (of course), AD&D, pop culture questions, and more!

And we get a visit from Brock, this show’s Dean Martin!  His band Lumberjack is finally dropping their album Bring It On Home onto streaming services at the beginning of 2019!

E443 – “Fast” Riding on the West Side



note: this episode features a single microphone due to logistical difficulties.  we apologize for the audio quality, but we will return to our usual microphones soon!

Naomi Fast lives on the west side of the Portland metropolitan area, and is an advocate for bicycling options in a community that isn’t always tailored to safety for human-powered options.  She talks about getting started on a no-car lifestyle, getting into and out of the suburbs, advocacy, and those little pass-though links you can discover in a gnarled web of cul-de-sacs.

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.

Bike errand tip: roll up a couple of reusable shopping bags and shove them in a bottle cage. Need to stop at the store, but don’t have your panniers with you? No problem! Plop them on your porteur rack, bungee ’em to the back rack, or just sling ’em over a shoulder.

Use a spare bottle cage as a bag holder
