E238b – Steph Routh Ends Her Vegan Year

Steph Routh went vegan for a year on a bet she thought she would win.  Turns out she has incredible self-restraint!  Brock was there for the first non-vegan thing she ate since 2014, and asked if she’d share the moment.

Congratulations on a huge life experiment, Steph! It’s inspiring to try something new, even if it’s challenging.

E238 – Jocelyn Gaudi: Team Komorebi

Jocelyn Gaudi is another one of our many-hat-wearing friends.  We talk about her new project with the Komorebi Cycling Team which takes women into the woods and off-road.  We also chat about her role on the KBOO Bike Show and her employment with Portland Design Works, also known as PDW!

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

Also:  The River Signal is up and running, Brock has finally arrived as part of the Portland bicycle crowd, and Aaron has a new dynamo hub!

E237b – Brian Benson Lives On A Boat

11111452_625570934244101_801118944_n

Brian Benson has been a guest on our show before when he talked about his book, Going Somewhere; now his project The River Signal is about to launch on a summer adventure down the Mississippi River during which he and his crew produce a fictionalized audio drama!

After the live broadcast of the pilot episode from a shipyard in north Portland, Oregon, and live music from many artists, including Those Willows, Brian was kind enough to give Brock & Adele a tour of the ship that he calls home, an old warship that is being restored into a haven for artists.  We’re pleased to share this exploration of alternate dwellings with you, and also to extend #boatmonth just a little farther.
