Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 33: Elias Bingham

Right outside his No Comply skateshop in Austin, TX Elias and I sat in the air conditioned rental car and talked about getting jumped on two-four, living in a skate house on Van Ness with Cairo and many others, running a valet service, moving to Austin and opening a skateshop, his great grandfather discovering Machu Picchu and a lot more.

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 32: Austin Amelio

While I was in Austin for less then 48 hours, I managed to squeeze in an interview with Austin Amelio. Such a humble dude who is enjoying the huge success of being on The Walking Dead, and now Fear The Walking Dead. But first thing’s first, Austin has been skateboarding for about 25 years, he went to high school in Singapore, he’s been a supporter and rider for the local shop,—NO COMPLY, and he’s sponsored by Roger Skateboards. He even interviewed Jake Phelps way back at the very first Thrasher Death Match. No matter if you’re Alive Rolling or Walking Dead, you best FEAR THE TALKIN’ SCHMIT! (had to, sorry) Thanks again to Austin for taking the time out, and Elias Bingham for providing the space in his living room to interview.

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 29: Ron Allen

The first of many things, but in the Podcast world-Ron Allen hits Talkin’ Schmit with it’s first 2-hour-plus episode(2hrs 16mins). We had a lot to cover including, H Street, Life, Sean Sheffey, FUN, American Dream inc, and so much more… I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did and if you’re scared of the length, just pretend it’s a two parter and continue when you can. There’s no rush bro, as Ron says: “Remember when we had time to take naps?” It’s Ron Allen kids, so listen up and you’ll definitely learn something…
