Podcast 255: Elspeth Beard In The House Ya’ll!

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by the one and only Elspeth Beard. She was the first woman to ride around the world, and since releasing her book last year, has become a reluctant idol. Reluctant in the fact that for over 30 years no one knew of her accomplishment, but since sharing her story recently, the world has been showering her with praise. She shares some more stories from her trip, talks about her new found fame, and lets us know if her future plans to make her villa in Italy a motorcycle tour destination. We also discuss some recent problems with spark plugs and alternators, as well as read listener emails and do our best to answer questions. We also draw a winner for this month’s Patreon Prize Pack. Congratulations Adam Bambrough! With Liza, Kat P, Douglas, Bex, Bagel, Miss Emma, Elspeth, Michael, Henry, Nak and Isaac.

Podast 251: The Last Motorcycle On Earth

This week on our motorcycle podcast we talk to writer/director Eric Ristau. His film, The Last Motorcycle On Earth, is a dramatic series about a vintage motorcycle collector and bike builder, Conrad Mendel, as he grapples with a new world of technology that threatens to destroy his passion and way of life. This takes place in the not too distant future, where the autonomous vehicles have become the norm and there’s a threat of a ban on motorcycles and eventually all human-driven transportation.
Next up, we find out who’s bike has died (Jim), and exactly how it came to happen. Then we catch up with Emma, who’s been in training this week on Ducati’s, and find out if her opinion of them has changed. Lastly, we finish up with emails and get into some debates on which is the right bike for the occasion.
With Isaac, Johhny, Henry, Nak, Bagel, Liza, Miss Emma, Daniel, Bex and Naked Jim.
