Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 12: Eric Shea


I’ve known Eric Shea for quite some time and to be honest I’ve heard a lot more from him then he’s heard from me. You see he is the singer of one of the best Bay Area bands out there, Hot Lunch. I recently drove over to the East Bay to meet him after work in his office at Pandora and catch up. We talked about growing up in SJ, living in Tahoe during the Mile High vert contest, playing music and living with Mike Prosenko, being in the Dogtown movie, current SF fails, and much much more…

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 11: Nicole Hause

This weeks guest Nicole Hause is originally from Minnesota but now lives in Oceanside,CA. She won last year’s Vans Girls Combi Classic contest and was nice enough to connect with me the day before this years event and talk some Schmit. Favorite foods, thoughts on the olympics, living with 9 cats and more all on this episode.

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 10: Antonius “Toad” Dintcho

In 1992, a young 6th generation San Franciscan out of the small town of Lake of the Pines,CA came into my life. Back then we had no idea the bond we would build under the term friendship. Fast forward to March 5th and who else would you expect to honor me with his presence as I break into double digits in the Podcast world… That’s right baby, we’re at episode 10! So throw on some headphones or crank up your sound system to 11 as Antonius Stavous Dintcho and I discuss early skateboard memories, the term Schmittying, best deserts in SF, Blood Wizard skateboards, the Chili Bowl and a whole lot more. We even listen to a Dirty and the Donuts song and take phone calls from Elissa Steamer and John Cardiel! I truly love you Toad, I hope you enjoy this episode…

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 7: Ryan “Peabody” McWhirter

I’ve known the Bod since at least 2005. Watched him grow up and start working with the Grindline dudes on epic parks, seen him get the cover of Thrasher Mag in Paris, camped plenty of times in the Northwest with him and drank many a brew at the 5 together. Ryan is straight up family for life, and I’m stoked to have been able to sit down with him the day before the Superbowl and catch up. Here you go, it’s Flyin’ Ryan McWhirter aka THE BOD!

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 6: Tim McKenney

Tim was there when I filmed my first clip that made it into a skateboard video, he was also there when I caught my first sturgeon. We spent so much time laughing, filming, skating and enjoying life together. He disappeared from my life for about 15 years, and recently he returned. He had a few clips in the recent Tired video and he’s been texting me on the regs almost every morning keeping the fire lit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a special one for me. Please listen as Tim McKenney fires up another episode of Talkin’ Schmit.
