When you turn on the podcast early in the morning and listen to an OG talk about photography and stunt wood riding, it can only mean one thing. That’s right mother fuckers—this man needs no introduction. Its the mighty BK—enjoy it, I know I did…

Token drummer of the decade on epiclyTRIFE, Shane Medanich and I go way back. Matter of fact some of the first photos I have of him are from 2005. Listen in as we catch up on old times with smiles on our faces, mentioning deviled eggs, growing up in downstate New York, his new band Slashers, his love for SF and NYC, and lots of other Hightower things then “I Am the Wallride.” All that and much more. Big love Shane, thank you and great seeing you bro!

Born in a small town in Kansas and raised in Germany; Dennis headed west and followed the California dream. Sponsored immediately and soon after turned pro for REAL. Super stoked to meet up with him and discuss those early days, Tampa Am, flipping a car with Phelper, the great American rock n roll band debate and much much more. Here you go, it’s episode 40 and I think it’s quite special. Thanks Dennis!
