Season Four is Now Filming!

Just a few short weeks after we concluded our 3rd season, we've started filming our 4th season. This past weekend we headed down to Southern Oregon and we shot the first five episodes of season four in under 48 hours. It was a whirlwind weekend complete with cheetahs, tiny trains and white water rapids!

We won't be premiering those episodes until early 2015, but I can offer you a sneak peek in the form of this news story produced by Kassi Nelson, our new(s) pal at KOBI 5 News in Medford, OR:

Stay tuned for more photos/videos coming soon!

And thanks to all the folks in Southern Oregon who made this trip possible including Brad Niva, Bob Russell, Bruce Kelly, Dan Marca and Tammi Ellison.

Remember That Time We Were on OPB?

Thanks to everyone who tuned into OPB to watch us last week. We were honored to start off the hour of Oregon Lens! And thanks to all the people who sent us kind tweets/notes afterward!

Also, OPB published a nice interview with me on the blog that talks a bit about the origins of the show and some of our favorite moments. You can read that here.

And though this marks the end of our 3rd season, our quest to get on Portlandia is still going strong. Watch this blog for an update very soon.

We're Heading to OPB for a Night!

You can watch The Pedal Powered Talk Show whenever you want right here on the internet but for one night you'll also be able to watch an episode on OPB! They're airing our interview with flute maker Roger McGee as part of their Oregon Lens series which features a bunch of great programing made by local media makers.

Our episode will be airing as part of the Oregon Lens episode that airs on Thursday, August 28th at 10PM (or 11PM for those of you watching on Southern Oregon Public Television). I think we'll be up first so make sure to tune in at 10PM sharp!

Thanks to Steve Amen, Nora Fisher-Campbell and all the kind folks at OPB for including us!

The Engine of the Bike/Desk Talks!

Our own Phillip Ross, co-creator and engine of The Pedal Powered Talk Show, was interviewed on a recent episode of The New Disruptors podcast. Though Phil might not say a lot on our show, he's got a lot of interesting stuff to say about biking, starting a company and making our show.

You can listen by clicking here.

Go Phil!

Over the past few weeks, we took a pedal-powered ride into a unique universe full of drag queens and roller skates and goats and bagpipes and lots of sequins. In case you missed any of them, I've posted them all below. Enjoy!

This is The Most Uneek Interview in the World

The long wait is over. We've met some pretty incredible and unique individuals over the last few weeks and we've chatted with them in an array of strange locations but we're pretty sure this next interview trumps them all. There are jingles galore, many sequins, a marching band, three kinds of mammals and a man who looks a lot like a former US President. Yes, we've done it. We've produced The Most Uneek Interview in the World. Here it is:

We were pretty thrilled with how it all turned out and this last episode would not have been possible without the impressive Beat Goes on Marching Band, our illustrious guest Steve Holgate, Rojo the Llama and his friendly owners, talented opera singer Michelle Fernandez and Peach (aka Gary Talbot) for making that beautiful sequined suit! And, of course, thanks to Keen Footwear and all the folks over there who funded our quest and supported us along the way.

And thanks to everyone who came out to our live premiere last night! It was a blast even if Fred and Carrie never showed.
