E533 – Northwest Hub in Salem, Oregon (with Abdul & Kirk)



Kirk Seyfert & Abdullah Mustafa from The Northwest Hub join the show to discuss this pro-human bike shop and its programs honoring and empowering the humanity, dignity, and value of every person that needs a bicycle!  We chat about Abdul’s Everesting Challenge and how much climbing he recently did, the Frame Up program he was fundraising for, the history of the Northwest Hub’s development, and what they’re up to these days.  They’re a fine organization to donate to!

Also: Brock is podcasting from a parked truck in Tacoma, and the air quality has been terrible lately.

E529 – Chris Smith: 6th Appearance, 2nd Round for Elections



Chris Smith is still our choice for the Oregon tri-county regional government election for Metro Councilor this fall (we spoke with him last on episode 505), and he rejoins us to explain his platform particulars at this stage of the process.  He talks about the primary election results from earlier in the year, compares to an opponent in the race, talks a little about the transportation measure that will be on the ballot, and lets us know how we can help! Find more: chrisformetro.com

Follow this link to make a donation to Chris’ campaign if you’re able – money talks, and if you want to see thoughtful, equitable change in a major city, your gift will make his voice heard.

Also: after the show, cohost Guthrie Straw gives some updates from his self-supported bicycle tour across the state.

Thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.

E505 – Chris For Metro!



Chris Smith is a favorite repeat guest, and while we know he’s an incredibly smart guy, the general public is about to learn how much he can help the Portland region!  Chris is tossing his hat into the ring in the upcoming May election for Metro Councilor in the regional government that helps to regulate transportation, housing, and environmental matter, among other things. There are some times when it feels good to be an independent platform, and we are excited to endorse him as the best choice for the job.  Listen to our chat with him here, read the great recent BikePortland article about his campaign, and visit chrisformetro.com to dive into supporting him!

E216a REBROADCAST – Scatalogical Emergency



Last week was the Thanksgiving holiday and the guys took a week out of the studio.  Until the next new show, we’re sharing this piece about gastrointestinal troubles and bicycle commutes featuring Aaron & producer Brock from 2014.  Some of you may have heard about Aaron’s recent injury (he’s OK!) – don’t worry, we’ll fill you in with the next show.  Thank you for listening!

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.
