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 few more fresh episodes thru the end of 2017.
For S2E2 of The Tim O’Connor Show, Tim sat down with New Jersey’s own self-proclaimed “Most Jacked Skater” Weckingball and his co-conspirator Wilkie. Tim got to the bottom of Weck’s online antics and his list of bones to pick with skateboarding’s most notable figures, ranging from Brandon Biebel to Steve Berra.
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.
