Was able to listen to this podcast on my way back from Windrock National.

I think what we learned is the question to ask now is:

"How long before Pinkbike calls Charlie & offers him a column and he just accepts it without approaching Vital for a counter offer?"

Yo Matt Dogg, I totally agree with you and in retrospect, I feel bad for the way I framed pharmaceuticals in a poor light. Drugs are really great when they're necessary, and I have friends who wouldn't be functional without anti-depressants. For those people drugs are really helpful and even before reading your comment today I was a little frustrated with my careless off-the-cuff remark.

I think drugs are like surgery- when they're called for, they're amazing!! But at the same time, I think the medical field has become over-dependant on them as a one-size-fits-all solution. For instance, a huge revolution in sports medicine in the last 15 years has been the widespread adoption of a PT-first approach to many common sprains and tears, whereas in years past those patients would have been referred directly to a surgeon. Similarly, when dealing with my own depression I'm happy I exhausted all non-pharmacological options before turning to medicine.

Thanks for calling me out on this oversight. It's a good word.

Thanks Charlie and Spomer for making this happen and for the insights and personal touch! I knocked this out a week ago on solo snowy ride.

Got to this one a bit late as I knew I needed to give it some time. I really got a lot out of it and it's been my fav inside line podcast so far. The depression thing from pushing to hard had a few people in the shop listening close, even the roadies.

Also, the "Watching Kranked 5 and NWD every...more

For what? I can say I've literally never said "I wish I had a knife" on the side of the trail.

15 years later and I still can't shake the suspicion that he actually likes Monster energy drinks.

I can just picture the scene now. Sam comes home to a wife in tears.

Wife: I found your son behind the shed... experimenting with clipless pedals.
