TPM EPISODE 35: TIM EDDY

Tim Eddy is one of the more positive people you'll ever meet and he happens to be a pro snowboarder with an interesting story.  He started slaying rails and rocking a persona known as T-Money when he was an up-an-comer on Burton and then he really found his true, wacky, self when he left the brand.   We talk about being an am, what it means to go pro, the financial crisis, tiny homes and more...
