ABOUT THE EPISODE

Santa Cruz first caught my attention years ago through their involvement with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, and the other events they have been involved with that also included an aspect of trail work. Then in November of 2019 Santa Cruz rolled out the “Paydirt Fund”. This really caught my attention and I’m sure others as well. After all, how many companies are giving out One Million Dollars over 3 years with no geographical limitations, and very few other limitations?

This brought me to Katie Zaffke who is the Paydirt Fund Program Coordinator. This is one of the most inspiring interviews I had the opportunity to take part in yet. Tune in to learn more about the Santa Cruz and the Paydirt fund.

Topics in the show include:

  • Katie Zaffke’s back story
  • The backstory about Santa Cruz supporting trail communities such as the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship.
  • How the Paydirt Fund came about
  • The details on some Paydirt Fund recipients
  • Details on what makes a good project for the Paydirt Fund
  • Breaking News – Tune in to see what program is morphing in the name of supporting those who help push trail projects.
  • Closing Comments.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

PEARL iZUMi has caught my attention as a company that is making great strides in telling stories about people and communities. They have a series called “Underexposed” high lighting communities that people may not associate mountain biking with right away and bringing attention to the. PEARL iZUMi also has a “Dig Series” where they highlight communities that are using trails and mountain biking to revitalize their economy.

In this show we speak with Joshua Lawton both a content creator and story teller for PEARL iZUMi. Joshua came to PEARL iZUMi from IMBA where he brought both the background and understanding trails and the advocacy that goes into creating trails doesn’t always get the attention they deserve.

Topics in the show include:

  • Joshua Lawton’s backstory
  • PEARL iZUMi Blog
  • Under Exposed Series
  • Dig Series
  • PEARL iZUMi as a company
  • Closing Comments
