Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 87: Frankie Hill

Growing up in Santa Barbara and eventually riding for Powell Peralta, getting a Thrasher cover, going to SF with Guy and Rudy, filming video parts with Stacy Peralta, getting an offer from Gonz, blowing out his knee, the comeback, a phone call from Ray Simmonds, Hill skateboards, a first impression from Todd Hastings, Tim & Eric 2, figuring out the schnitty with Schmitty and much more with the legend himself, Frankie Hill!

Mc Can I get some music up on this pod? Tim and I sit down in the parking lot of Pacifica skatepark and dedicate some music, give some shout-outs and call a homie for confirmation of an upcoming appearance. Warning: Eric J may even appear…

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 30: Eric J.

Tonight is the night! Episode 30 with the elusive creature Eric Jalavara. Eric gets goat roped into a full conversation about early Think days, living on a boat at Pier 39, skating with the Hell Ride crew, defining Gumby, Wallenberg urban legend, hide-a-dook down a previous guests chimney, Wheatberry stories and a lot more. As if that wasn’t enough, I got a co-host to elaborate and give shout-outs on the fly—welcome back Timothy Donald McKenney. Big love from the Peninsula’s finest—you’re not gonna want to miss this one…
