Christmas Special!

Yep, it’s another festive hoedown with my friends Tim and Gendle! If you’re new to the show or unfamiliar with the boys and their work, allow me to introduce them: two of the biggest influences and most-loved presences in European snowboarding, whether as film-makers, presenters or snowboarders.

Not that went over all that. Instead, we sat down for this two-hour plus mince pie and Secret Santa-fuelled yibble fest during which we ticked every festive box going. Booze? Tick. Secret Santa? Tick. A quiz everyone can play along with? Tick.

We even ticked off another podcast trope as the boys turned the tables on me and asking me to answer a few questions myself. Yep, this is a totally frivolous, Yuletide-themed episode especially for your festive edification with two of my oldest friends – enjoy! Listen to the episode below:
