E207 – Meghan Sinnott: Head & Shoulders Knees & Toes

Megan Sinnott joins us to talk about her employer, Nutcase Helmets & their design contest, trade tips on clothing & fashion aboard bikes, running social media for many events including the WNBR and the Midnight Mystery Ride and her connection to the much-loved Filmed By Bike festival.

Note: a portion of this week’s recording was lost to technical problems; the break in recording is signified by a static sound effect, and we reference the lost conversation occasionally from then on.  Our apologies, and we’ve ordered some new equipment to mitigate these sorts of problems in the future. Thanks for your patience & understanding!

Also: Brock dressed as a tiger for Halloween and appreciates sewing; Aaron does a little more rain cape testing.

Mark S. has the Portland rain jacket from Showers Pass, loves it, and tells Aaron to splurge.  He also shares his experience with an (almost) vegan bacon cheeseburger made by a young Orthodox Jewish lady.

Dan in MN shares some bicycle camping photos. (and, pertinent to last week’s musing, Shawn Granton does know about him, as evidenced by a tumblr trail.)

Jeremy from Transit Matters shares his thoughts on the finger, Aaron’s legal patch, and sharrows; also recommends use of mirrors for communication while riding.

Orfos Flares are the next big thing in bicycle lighting, says Pete Clyde.  Kickstarter in progress, based out of Seattle and designed for wet climates.

JohnnyK shares Nauticraft out of Michigan, makers of pedal-powered watercraft!

Doug says: “OK, that was weird. There was a 60 sec segment during this podcast where Dan from Minnesota, Shawn Granton, and Garrison Keillor were all mentioned. What’s weird about that? I’ve met all three of them!”
