David Wise is the most decorated halfpipe skier of all-time.  Going into the Olympic Games, he is on fire and is everyone’s favorite to win back to back gold medals.  He’s a likable 27 year old going on 40.  He has a wife, 2 kids, and likes to spend a lot of time alone in the woods bowhunting.  In a world of rock stars, he’s a man of faith with nothing to prove to anyone other than himself.  We talk life, getting dropped from 4FRNT and more on the podcast
