Season 4 Starts Right Now


Season 4 of The Pedal Powered Talk Show takes us all over the State of Oregon but we're starting down south in Winston, Oregon at the Wildlife Safari:


When I first contacted Tammi at the Wildlife Safari, I wasn't sure exactly what kind of access we'd be getting. There was talk of setting up on the far side of the elephant pool but when we arrived early in the morning they directed us straight to the cheetah habitat and in no time the crew and I are were inches away from two full grown cheetahs. Of course, there were a bunch of expert cheetah keepers around and each cheetah was secured with two leashes. I definitely felt safe, especially with the amount of purring those cheetahs were purring.

Season 4 Premieres on Thursday!



Why did we load the desk on some sort of safari vehicle? I don't remember. But I bet it'll all come back to me when the first episode of our fourth season is released right here on Thursday, February 26th!

Oh, wait. I just found this other photo:


I think the episode has something to do with cheetahs.

Boaz was on Portlandia!

If you're even vaguely familiar with our show then you've certainly heard about our quest to get the bike/desk on Portlandia. Click anywhere on this sentence to see an illustrated guide to that quest.

While The Pedal Powered Talk Show still hasn't made it onto Portlandia, if you watched last week's episode, you may have spotted a familiar face:


See that bearded character in the lower right corner? That's right! It's me (Boaz Frankel, host of The Pedal Powered Talk Show)! And if that's not enough, I also popped up in blurrier, less central locations throughout the episode:








It's like "Where's Waldo" but less consistent because I change shirts a few times!

We're still hoping our bike/desk gets its chance to shine on Portlandia but we'll accept this as a very small consolation until that day comes.

Giant Cuckoo Clocks

Our pals at Travel Portland (with help from Wieden+Kennedy) decided to build a giant cuckoo clock to tell the residents of Seattle and Vancouver (BC) how awesome our city is. But before they schlepped that clock up to Seattle, they hired The Pedal Powered Talk Show to make a series of teasers to let everyone know that they were taking this timepiece on a road trip. You can check out those teasers below:




Pretty cool, huh? They'll be installing pieces of the clock at different Portland landmarks so keep an eye out for it!

The Epic Tricycle Race of 2014

A few weeks back, The Pedal Powered Talk Show was invited to appear on "Who's the Ross," a local late-night talk show that's performed in front of a live audience at Dante's each week. In addition to an in-depth interview we were challenged to  a high-stakes tricycle race. We put on onesies and red wigs (that you might recognize) for the occasion and headed outside to pedal down Burnside. Some people say the race was rigged. Others say someone cheated. I don't want to comment on either of those accusations but here's the video so that you may judge for yourself:


We've already been challenged to a rematch but I don't know if we should accept. What do you think?
