E095 – Shawn Granton: Urban Adventure League



Shawn Granton is the author of many independent, self-illustrated print publications and the blog Urban Adventure League.  A self-proclaimed retro-grouch and avid bicycle tourist, he enjoys leading Cycle Wild trips and taking his own independent tours as well.  He prefers a slower approach to technology and communication both on and off the bike.

Also, The Sprocket Podcast continues its Indiegogo fundraising campaign to underwrite the next season of the show during a year with thin budgets.  We will be offering many personalized rewards to our backers!  Thanks to this week’s donors: Anonymous, Steve,Tim, Michael, Blayne, and Lily.  See the details here!

Finally, stay tuned at the end of the show for an important announcement from Brandon Rhodes.
