We don’t really need to write much of an introduction for this one. Tim got the elusive Mark Gonzales mic’d up for the fifth episode of the Tim Pod, and this one is so good we decided to turn it into a two parter. What is normally #goodpod, has become #greatpod.

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].

    Hey Mark, if you’re reading this, tell Indy to make some titanium axle 215’s, I keep bending my rear axles from ollieing around on flat (I’m a hair under 200lbs). This happens to you any? Riding a plank at the moment, had a snub nose earlier in the year. You going to ride that peacock fatty Wes is about to put out? Keep on truckin’ maybe see you in Texas one day again.
