Australian listeners Andrew and Bernadette Peirce- of the excellent A&B Film Podcast– use their Patreon reward to request that Brian and Shaun discuss All This Mayhem (2014), a documentary about skateboarding Aussie brothers who at one time were ranked #1 and #2 in the world.
As many rags-to-riches-to-rags stories are, Tas and Ben Pappas’s tale unfortunately has a lot to do with drugs. Brian and Shaun take the occasion to talk about the nature of addiction, as well as its effects on their own lives.
Here’s the Transworld interview with Tony Hawk mentioned in the episode: http://skateboarding.transworld.net/news/tony-hawk-responds-to-allegations-made-in-all-this-mayhem/
