Jamie obviously needs no introduction, unless of course you aren't familiar with his body of work. In that case I suppose that you would need a quick intro. He's pretty good at riding bikes and he is English. Raymond however is pretty outstanding at riding scooters and from what I understand hails from Cailifornia. We also had a guest appearance by Sam Bestwick as well.

Solo Ramble Episode
We made it to 1/2 a year with these podcasts and I decided to test my limits of rambling solo for an episode. There is some silly, some serious although not very much and some very random ramblings from myself. Even the serious is peppered with joking so I hope you enjoy.
Matteo and I were roommates each summer for a couple years and we got to know each other pretty well. He went on to start a successful engineering company. He even has multi color pens and coffee mugs with his name on it. If that doesn't say "you made it" I am not sure what does.
Raymond is a professional scooter rider/ youtuber. Not long ago neither of those things were real, but Raymond is making it pretty obvious that if you set your mind to something, anything is possible.

Anthony Napolitan is an X Games medalist and World Champion Bmx rider. If that wasn't enough to get you excited he has access to a lifetime supply of hot dogs. Is there a Willy Wonka of hot dogs with some sort of enchanted processed meat factory? Maybe not, but Anthony is pretty cool either way.

Getting to know the host John Saxton
This episode is kind of what started this whole thing here when someone interviewed me. I figured to start this series I would post this as the first one so you can get to know me as the host before getting into the rest of the interviews I will be posting. Maybe it will be fun, but who can tell.
Finally, a podcast with some dummy rambling about nothing and interviews with people more interesting.
