After a somewhat lengthy hiatus, we’re excited to officially be back with Season 2 of the Tim O’Connor Show. In between raising his kids and announcing contests, Tim managed to get some support from Adidas for the #GoodPod, so we’ll be bringing you a fresh batch of 6 episodes by the end of 2017.
For S2E1 of The Tim O’Connor Show, Tim sat down with Mark Suciu in his overpriced Manhattan apartment, where Mark filled us in on his post-college life and opened up about his love for literature, what it’s like growing up rich, and who his favorite skater out there today is. Of course, Tim doesn’t hold back on letting his voice be heard, but what else would you expect from skateboarding’s Podfather?
Just listen for yourself before we ruin any of the good stuff and if you’re an impatient listener, indulge your ADHD and check out the time-stamped highlights below.
As always, if you have any comments, feedback or just wanna bitch, scroll down on Instagram and write some stuff to @thetimoconnor. Feedback is always encouraged.
