You thought the #goodpod was dead? Well you thought wrong, buddy! It’s been much too long a wait, but we’re happy to finally bring y’all another episode of The Tim O’Connor Show. And this one’s a bit of a wild card. Tim caught up with legendary filmer / photographer Ian Reid and the beloved Mike Carroll in New York to talk about all the sorts of weird shit these two guys are into.
For those who may not know, Ian is responsible for one of skateboarding’s wildest videos ever: “Sex, Hood, Skate & Videotape” – think Worldstar Hip Hop mixed with Baker 3 and you’ve only begun to scratch the surface. Now he’s on to shooting strange and kinky photos of masochists and dominatrixes across the world, which seems like a strange path but actually makes perfect sense considering the strong ties between skateboarding and fetishism.
Speaking of, Carroll was in town working on an upcoming collab Girl Skateboards is working on with Ian, and made some time to sit in on the convo to keep the drunkard ramblings of Tim and Ian in check. Just listen for yourself before we ruin any of the good stuff. If you’re an impatient listener, indulge your ADHD and check out the timestamped highlights below.
