E451 – The Sprockettes!



Angie, Ryn & Meg are part of The Sprockettes, a dance troupe whose dance partners are bicycles, and have been a part of Portland’s bicycle scene for years.  In addition to clearing up the question of whether we know them or not, we find out what their approach to their performances is, notable moments in their experience bringing bicycle dance to the world, and what it’s like to teach routines to kids at their summer camps.

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

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!

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!


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?

Also: Portland Roller Hockey

And a special shout-out this week to Jason Aufdenberg. You know why, Jason.
