Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 105: Alana Smith

I first met Alana at the training compound down in Mesa, AZ several years back. I remember filming her do a perfect tre-flip which went nuts on the Thrasher instagram. Since then I’ve got to get to know her better from seeing her at most of the contests and when I’m down in Arizona. She’s a member of the very small group of girls that have landed a 540 on vert, she’s skated the mega, also got the Silver medal in her first XGames at the age of 12, and won the Combi Classic in 2015. Been hoping to get our schedules in line for a while and I’m stoked it all worked out. Hope you all enjoy this one, Alana is a ruler!

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 103: Joe Keithley

Joey has been the lead singer for the legendary punk band D.O.A. for over 40 years and is currently the city concillor in Burnaby, BC Canada. We sprinkle a little politics in but mostly we discuss early life in Canada, starting a band, playing one their first show in SF and meeting Jello Biafra, and more. We also listen to some of his favorite songs from the band with little stories about each one and we end the conversation with a discussion on our thoughts about the greatest American punk band of all-time.

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 99: MOFO Vol. 1

Raised in Escondido; Mofo is a straight up legend—a pioneer who created or helped create much of what drew me into the world of skateboarding. His stories are plenty and his miles are many and the people he’s shot photos of… you’ve probably had on your wall. Whether it be early days at Thrasher Magazine, living with Tony Alva in So-Cal, coining and launching the “Skate Rock” department, crashing on Swenson’s couch in SF, being front-man for the Drunk Injuns skate rock band, creating logos for Thunder Trucks and SMA, or partying with Skip Engblom in Venice—Mo was there. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did and believe me, the interview ran out of time way before I ran out of questions; thus the ‘Vol.1’ History is important kids, so listen up; it’s Mörizen Föche—RISIN RISIN!!!


BK, Mofo, Ortiz, and Grant Brittan—Now those are master lensmen…
