Reached out to one of the good homies Thomas McElroy about being the next guest and he was down! I first met this dude back when I was living in Alabama for a bit. We always had pretty heavy conversations whether it was about skating, or life in general. Needless to say this conversation did not disappoint. We cover his early years of skateboarding, moving to Switzerland, experimenting with psychedelics, moving to Orlando to pursue music, meeting Evan Smith and more... Thanks for the feedback so far, you guys are awesome. As always if you would like to reach out to the host of the show you can do so on Instagram @rshaw78
In this episode of "Skate Brain" I meet up with two friends of mine: Anthony Iacone and "Incognito." These guys are rad and definitely have a unique outlook on life. We talk about growing up, finding skateboarding, film-photography, making homemade skateboards, pet peeves, moving to England, hockey, making short films, and more.
It was a lot of fun making this episode and if you listen all the way through you'll find a secret code to a giveaway.

For the fourth episode of "Skate Brain" I (Riley Shaw) meet up with a good homie of mine: Wesley Lembo. Wes is a massive skate nerd (like me) so it was pretty easy to sit down and talk skateboarding with him for an hour. He kills it on the board and is well known throughout the local Atlanta skate-scene. We cover his early skate influences, local scene, filming his first video-part, riding for Bender Hardware @benderhardware, and more.

In this episode of "Skate Brain" I have a talk with my buddy Nate Peterman. Nate is a positive, intelligent kid, with a great attitude and unique approach to skating. He's recently gotten more attention in the local skate scene and continues to progress on his board every day. It was very interesting to hear some of his views on skating and life. Although only 16, Nate has the level headedness and wisdom of someone much older. I'm hyped to see what the future has in store for this kid and honored to be his friend. Thanks Nate, enjoy guys!
For the second episode of, "Skate Brain" I meet up with an old friend of mine James Burton. James and I met right around the time when we both started skateboarding and we've remained friends over the years. James has had a crazy ride over the years and through it all has held onto skateboarding. Not to mention he has one of the best switch frontside flips in the game! I'm truly honored to be able to share a little of his story and his take on skateboarding. Enjoy!
In the first episode, of "Skate Brain", I (Riley Shaw) meet with a good friend of mine Andy Harrison. Andy is a creative human who is always working on something whether it be music, art, or skateboarding. I first met Andy working at my local skate shop and we instantly nerded out on skateboarding. In this episode we learn a little more about Andy's upbringing and how he found to love skateboarding.
This is: Skate Brain.
