THE POWELL MOVEMENT SHOW
WELCOME TO THE POWELL MOVEMENT! Every week you’ll get a dose of awesomeness as I take a deep dive into the careers, history and psyche of the greatest athletes and behind the scenes players from the world of action sports. From humble beginnings to becoming supernovas, these talents have shaped the sports that we love and continue to PUSH IT- which is to say - if they PUSH IT they’re on THE POWELL MOVEMENT.
THEME MUSIC: QUADRILLION "GREAT ESCAPE"
Sherry McConkey is the most positive, toughest woman I know. She grew up in politically charged South Africa, traveled the world, and landed in Squaw Valley, CA. Her story is one of adventure, love, loss and making a difference in her community and the world all while being an amazing role model for daughter Ayla, and the rest of the Tahoe community.
Miles Daisher is a perpetually stoked human being. The worlds most accomplished BASE Jumper is part "watch this... hold my beer" and part calculated mastermind. His story is literally, all over the map.
Jason Levinthal has been a visionary in the ski industry for over 20 years. He's know for brand building genius, blue-collar work ethic and keeping his finger on the pulse of tomorrow. He started the revolutionary ski company, Line Skis, out of his parent’s garage and eventually was forced to sell his baby (while still managing it and other brands) to The Jarden Corporation. Jason’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for timely innovation led him to leave the comfort of his corporate check and start again from scratch with J Skis.
Tom Wallisch is one of the best skiers of his time and is still as humble as they come. From the streets, to the internet, to the X-Games and the big screen, Tom is known for being technical as much as he is known for style. Pretty impressive for a kid who grew up skiing in MD and PA.
Snowboarding and hard work have done everything for Pat Bridges. A writer by trade, Pat is also a talented snowboarder who proves the old saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” Pat and I talk about developing his writing craft through snowboarding, the theme of his life and the road to Snowboarder Magazine.
Jeremy Jones is an American badass who has inspired countless people to head to the mountains. He dabbles is business and politics but is known for snowboarding.
