With guest co-host, Kenny Watson. Great stories between these two friends. Brian’s evolution is pretty incredible; Photo Definitely have a newfound respect for him as a competitor, a dad, and a man.

I haven't listened to all of the WT pods, but most. This was easily one of the best to date.

I'd agree with your comment 100%: "Definitely have a newfound respect for him as a competitor, a dad, and a man.". Great job. I dig Watson's stories too.

I love these WTS podcasts. So much you never knew about all these guys when they were racing.

Kenny had some good stories Brian didn't remember or chose not to remember. We need a "Whiskey Throttle Show After Dark" for the rest of the stories.

Watching it now. Another great show. Honestly, I've never been a big Deegan fan but this show is changing my opinion. Really enjoying Watson. I was able to meet him once at a local track when he was involved with the H&H team and he seems to be a great guy.

As always, great show.

Look at the above photo of the AMA official with the checkered flag...the dude seems to be hovering in mid air. Nice form.

Great episode. I always liked Deegan and it was a fun listen, for sure.

pretty impressive business sense to start the metal mulisha LLC. He must hold the record for most money made post racing career with just 1 win to his name. Gotta have more $ in the bank than Mgrath or any other rider from the 90's. His East coast home is to die for.

Kenny’s awesome. Good dude that’s been there, done it and seen a lot of shit

Add me to the list of I was not a real Brian Deegan fan but respected what he did.

After watching that interview, I was very impressed with Brian and how he has turned his life around 180 and is a great father to his kids and a very successful businessman.

Great interview Ping. 👍

Marrying into money doesn't count. He is self made %100.

I was at Washougal one year that Brian raced this bike.
He had strippers in the pits with high platform boots.
I thought it was pretty funny but maybe if I was a parent with kids not so much.

Just like Frank Sinatra.

Cmon now lol more than MC?!

He did a heck of a job marketing his brand while linkogle dealt with some demons. But Brian kept the mulisha 50/50.

As always, great job with the interview Ping. (I've been an avid listener even on episodes I didn't think I'd like and found myself glad I did.)

Let's chat about the new intro and commercials. If I might offer some suggestions:

(Keep in mind I don't watch the show, I listen to it only.)

1. I understand the need for advertising however, what made your show so unique was how you incorporated the sponsor read at the beginning with that typical Pingree wit and delivery. (Dopn't be a dick to your feet - Loved That!!!) It also makes it hard to skip over because you always seem to make the sponsor read interesting. (Now you sound a little like everybody else.)
Solution- keep the old intro strategy and do your sponsor read like years past so people don't want to skip to the content. (Unless you have data to support the change - I wouldn't have changed it.)

2. I don't know who your new booming southern announcer VO guy is but I would have only used him to introduce the show and VO a couple ads. He seems to be dominating your VO work. (This is just opinion so take it with a grain of salt.) I think when the host is participating in the ad VO, it adds more authenticity to your connection with those brands.
Solution - You want to keep people engaged during the ad break, be more engaging. That's what sponsors want...they don't want people skipping to the content.

3. Keep asking questions the way you ask them...you do an awesome job as an interviewer. You genuinely sound interested in the story. Keep doing that. Unlike some other podcasts where the host(s) might sound like a fanboy or a know-it-all - you provide a different perspective and approach. Very well done. (I also like that you told Watson to shut up because he started monopolizing the interview. I think he forgot this was about Brian and not about him. HAHA)

You can take this input or leave it... I wanted to offer this up because with GL not being a regular, a new producer, and a revolving door of guest hosts, I think you're going to find it hard to maintain the spirit of the show if you change too much too soon.

Food for thought. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback! There will be lots of tweaks for a few shows until we get it right. I certainly listen to the folks watching/listening, so please keep the constructive thoughts coming. We’ll keep working on getting better!

Good show. Thought you did a great job digging out Brian Deegan from the character that Brian Deegan has portrayed.

Really finding myself watching the interviews instead of the audio version. Love the context of seeing the peoples expressions in addition. Its cool when you pull up the pictures as well to the story

|

1/19/2021 10:26 AM

Brian's very well spoken, not anyone could've did what he did. Glad it paid off for him.

1/19/2021 1:42 PM

Miss GL, but hey I guess that can’t be helped right now.

I’m not a fan of the new husky voiced advertisement guy- it goes on too long and is too monotone. I wasn’t listening after a while. Then to find that you use him to introduce the star guest.. go back to your read-out of the adverts, again, GL’s “ don’t be a dick to your feet” & “trust me on this” was great.

I can’t listen to that monotone guy for that length of time every show- I’ll skip right to the content.

If Kenny could just hold back 50% of the swearing that’d be good. I’m not averse to swearing, but if I’m playing the audio in my shop and a customer and family comes in, I need to know the swearing isn’t going to be excessive. Part of this show, every 2nd word was f*ck!

I have been a staunch supporter of WTS and still am. I’m so glad you’re continuing.

Brian... he wasn’t a top TOP guy in moto and therefore didn’t flag on my radar enough for me to be a fan. (That said, I was neither a hater)
And freestyle wasn’t my thing, but I listened and in the end when it finished up, I’m now a BD fan!
Good work Brian, David, Kenny.👍🏻

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.

I look at Brian as a 125 rider, a lot of people wanted to see him kick some more ass. But where happy he got that 1 win. Remember Brian wearing a open face pudding helmet in 95, practice at a national. Haha. Running a stock cylinder on his 96 cr125, what chaparral couldn’t afford a 250 port job. Using a German helmet for the image of metal mellisha is genius. 7 yr old boy wants a toy, mom looks that’s perfect. A military guy doll riding a dirt bike, cost under 10 bucks mom can afford it. My Dutch grandpa was a pow in a nazi work camp, hogans heroes had the same image. Gramps was more afraid of my Dad a farmer, can,t be afraid of a farmer image right. So it doesn’t affend me at all. Brian was a pretty good truck racer, crandon, bark river, etc tracks. Not to nit pick, but cover more details of the beginning when the riders started winning and or 1st year pro. Just like a band, the beginning is always the best story.

Deegan will always be one of the coolest pro riders I’ve ever met. Despite the bad boy image back in the day he couldn’t of been any nicer to a young moto rat like myself. RM Cup Cooperland OK 1997. After this pic (which Ronnie Tichenor took) Brian hooked me up with a bunch of Moto XXX stickers and asked about my motos that weekend. Super down to earth Photo

Good show. I would like my 10 year old to watch it with me, But with all the F bombs, not going to do it. We all talk about appealing to the new viewer and growing the "Family" sport, but most parents would not allow their kids to listen to all the swearing. Even at the track when I am there with my son, and some kid or dad comes over to talk and they start cussing like a sailor..smh.. not house broken..
