Lube up your earholes and screw your wigs on tight, the good pod is back, baby! On the fourth episode of the #TIMPOD, Timmy O meets with Alex O at a busy-ass restaurant in NYC to shoot the shit about the perils of pro-hood, Call Me 917, and dealing with dirty urges. To be brief: Tim thinks you should have sex with anything and everything; Alex does not. These intimate details and more when you tune in for this week’s “pro-to-pro jive sesh.”

Don’t forget to check out the show highlights, the submitted questions, and the links and mentions from this week’s episode. And, as always, send shit for Tim to talk about next time here: [email protected].

    why are people moaning about tim speaking over him? the majority of the interview is about two different generations of skaters and how they view the specific eras of skating/footage. surely that works better as a conversation than a monologue
    also, everytime i want to pay alex out i watch or hear interviews with him and you can tell hes far more interesting than a ‘cool fashion guy’ or whatever. very interesting to listen to and great that he’s outspoken about not drinking and his reasons for it

      Thanks sir. You picked up on what was really taking place in the conversation. Alex is an interesting human and much smarter than the average pro skateboarder.
