A couple weeks ago Catfish and I sat down with Broc Raiford for a long, often hilarious chat where we touched on just about everything. Another awesome interview with one of the sickest riders in the game. Enjoy and please do us a favor by subscribing and rating us on iTunes.

Not BMX of course but everyone’s favorite skater dude who isn’t scared to jump off pretty much anything Jaws ollied the Lyon 25 stair. The cover came out a few weeks ago but the video is now online and it’s surreal. 10 minutes of pure intensity. This dude is one of a kind. If you’re […]
I’ve been getting a ton of shirts and hats in the mail from young aspiring streetwear brands so I decided to do a vlog where I took a look at all the stuff I’ve gotten in the mail over the last month. Independent BMX brands, feel free to send stuff in as well and maybe I can make a similar video showing off some BMX stuff in the future. Let me know what you think and thanks to everyone who sent shit in.
This has been a pretty poorly kept secret for the past couple months (Sean was riding a Cult with stickers shining at the Animal jam a few weeks back) but Sean Ricany is now riding for Cult and has a presumably spectacular video that he filmed with Veesh dropping very soon to introduce him to the team. Congrats Sean!
Update: Check out the below teaser for his welcome video dropping on March 1st featuring one insane line!
Just realized that Dig posted Miles Rogoish’s rendition of the Animal LA street ride (you may remember that Nate Richter’s version dropped a few weeks ago). There are a bunch of crazy clips and funny antics in here that weren’t in ours so tune in if you’ve got a minute.
How will a bunch of talented young bucks ride when their food money is on the line? We’re all about to find out thanks to Full Factory‘s new Lunch Money series featuring a bunch of Odyssey and Sunday‘s team. Jacob Cable, Mark Burnett, Brandon Webster, Travis Hughes, Julian Arteaga and Matt Nordstrom round out the crew, it should be very interesting to see how this goes.
“Six of Odyssey and Sunday’s rising young stars put their food money on the line for six days. Check out Day 0 right now, and get ready for the series to kick off with Day 1 dropping tomorrow.”
I found out about Craig Xen a few months back through the magic of Soundcloud and his star has been steadily rising since. Tyler Grosso recently became a fan and has been working closely with Craig so it seems big things are on the horizon. I got him in the studio for an interview and found out that there’s much more to the man than meets the eyes. Enjoy the interview.
We already had Black Kray on the podcast a few months so I figured it was time to get a few more of his Goth Money partners in crime on the show to further flesh out their movement. Marcy Mane AKA MFK and Kane Grocerys came through the studio for an interview in which we discussed their stylistic influences, growing up in DC, why Wale is rap’s punching bag and much much more.
Today on TCU TV we’ve got Tyler Fernengel and Mikey Tyra. You may not know this but Tyler and Mikey grew up riding together and although their careers have taken different paths and their styles have diverged a bit, they are still good friends who hang out whenever possible. While Tyler was in LA hanging out with us I managed to get them both on the podcast along with Catfish as my co-host to find out about where they’re coming from, where they’re going and what makes them tick. Thanks for listening!
The legendary Baker/Shake Junt filmer and philosopher BEAGLE joined us today on the podcast for one hell of a conversation. We got Beagle to talk about everything from finally switching to HD after almost 20 years behind the VX, his Three 6 Mafia infatuation, taking 2 days off from skating per year, driving an Uber and much more. Enjoy and by all means Subscribe to our channel and check us out on Soundcloud via the link below. Continue reading →
Rob $tone tweeted a video at me of a crazy live performance of his song Chill Bill which currently has over 6 million Soundcloud plays. I liked it and was interested in what he had going on down in San Diego, so I told him to come up to LA for an interview. I sat down with Rob, his boy J Spooks and friend of both No Jumper and Rob’s crew, Celes Karter for an interesting conversation that I am sure you will all enjoy.
Augie Simoncini is a true G. He teamed up with his sponsor Animal and LA’s 2 strongest BMX crews, ONSOMESHIT and Thee Block to unite the scene for a fun ass day in the streets blocking traffic, smashing pegs and disrupting the flow of daily life in Los Angeles for thousands of citizens. Thanks to all of the riders who came out and supported LA BMX.
Craig Passero just sent through this dope section that his boy Austin Mazur put together. Austin had a great section in Whammo 2 this year and he is definitely one of the Long Island natives holding it down right now. Check this shit out, thanks to Craig for hooking it up.
Last weekend my dude Adam from Ham On Everything hit me up saying that he had booked a group called Divine Council to open for Keith Ape and that I should interview them because they were dope as hell. I checked out their music and quickly realized that Divine Council included Cyrax of “I Like” fame, the same dude who Yung Weej shouted out on his podcast. I perused a bit more of their catalog and soon decided they were worthy of the No Jumper co-sign. And man I sure am glad I did. These dudes are young, but also fucking hilarious. We had a great conversation about everything from Mortal Kombat to how we wish our teachers had tried to bang us in high school. Watch this interview and then get your Googles on and check out some music from these boys, I promise there are big things to come.
Nate Richter hit the streets with Caleb Quanbeck, Funeral Michael, Eric Lichtenberger, Abdullah Alkhalili and a new recruit who goes by the name of Diggy. They got kicked out of multiple schools but finally found one where they could get their fix and then polished off the day with some beers. Enjoy!
This week on TCU TV we had Midwest legend Mike Hinkens in the studio. This conversation went exceptionally well so we let it run long, talking for over 2 hours in total. Check the list of topics discussed below and leave a comment if you enjoyed this!
