Talkin' Schmit Ep. 73: Evan Husney (Dark Side Of The Ring)
Evan Husney is Executive Producer and co-creator of the incredible doc series on wrestling entitled, "Dark Side of the Ring". Listen as we discuss his work at Viceland, working with legendary wrestlers on the show(which they finished during the pandemic). I think you'll really be blown away from things like: Bruiser Brody getting killed backstage in Puerto Rico, car robbers outside their hotel room, a threat from a former wrestler, and Owen Hart's accidental fall to death during a pay-per-view in which the event continued after Owen was carted out of the arena. I know it's not skateboarding, but  this stuff is insane to me and I am truly intrigued and loved every minute of these docs. It was an honor to have Evan on the show and a big thanks again to Weibs for connecting the dots. Big love! Also, this episode has our first ever FREE GIVEAWAY...

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 Im stoked to have been able to sit down with him the day before the Superbowl and catch up. Here you go, Flyin' Ryan McWhirter aka THE BOD!

Rob Collinson aka Magnethead is a long time friend who I can honestly say works harder then most people I know. When he takes something on, he is 100% committed. Since I met him, he's become a husband, a father, a fireman and the owner of a successful skateboard zine in Lowcard. I consider Rob a good friend and was delighted to get to spend some time catching up. Enjoy...  Music Credits:  Natur "Mary Cross " Pins of Light  "Buried Lightning"

Talkin' Schmit Ep. 3: Evan "Sneaky" Becker
I met Becker in 2002ish, he introduced me to how East Coasters handle situations. A very straight to the point no beatin' around the bush type guy who at that time couldn't get to the grocery store and handle his own dinner to save his live. He lived at the Trife HQ and was instant bro status with Drehobl, the Ginch and I. We've travelled many miles, drank many beer and had enough laughs to fill up a hot air balloon. For this episode I pieced a couple things together; due to technical difficulty I had to interview him twice(still learning the best recording options). Although Becker is episode 3, he will always be my first Podcast interview. Thank you Evan. —Schmitty  SUBSCRIBE to Talkin' Schmit Email me your comments, suggestions, constructive criticism, who you'd like to hear on the show, or whatever you want: EpiclyTrife@Yahoo.com
