Pedal Powered Talk Show
I was getting interviewed by a lot of TV news stations while traveling on my cross-country Un-Road Trip project and I couldn't help but feel bad when a giant news van would drive miles out of their way to cover my car-free journey. I started thinking about the possibility of integrating a television production into a much smaller and pedal-powered contraption. After a conversation with a cargo bike builder, the idea for the Pedal Powered Talk Show was born. Then I needed to find a way to fund it. I secured a few thousand dollars in sponsorship dollars from Keen Footwear, Nutcase Helmets and Steven Smith Teamaker and within a few weeks I had an operational talk show desk built into a bicycle.
Now in our 5th season, we've produced interviewed a range of actors and musicians, racked up tens of thousands of hits, got written up on USAToday.com, and we were featured in Willamette Week's Best of Portland issue.
