Bobby Nichols, Founder of 'The Sports Syndicate' & action sports agent

On this episode Bobby Nichols, Founder of The Sports Syndicate joins me as we peel back the curtain on the realities of what it means to be a professional sports agent. Bobby was an early pioneer within the niche action sports world, at a time when it was truly the wild west. His area of focus was concentrated around surf, skate, snow and motorcross.  We’ll learn how he built a successful company around niche sports and “Fringe" athletes.  He shoots it straight about his early career set backs and failures, to how he turned the tide into eventually selling his business to the Wasserman Media Group.

Christian Strike; serial entrepreneur and creator

We trace Christian's roots from his early dorm room success launching and selling a magazine business, to his media publishing career and how he parlayed that same counter cultural, independent thinking into one of the most important art movements of a generation, "Beautiful Losers".  We discuss the vision it takes to curate a traveling, global art exhibition… We also discuss the second internet revolution as Christian defines as the 'Mobile’ revolution and how his new venture DISTLL, a mobile commerce platform, figures to play a key role.

We touch on Wu Tang Clan skate decks, the photography of Craig Stecyk and why Vice media is no accidental sensation and much more…

Tune in for my conversation with Brian Mackenzie.   We dive (pun intended) into his crazy adventures as he gets out of a perfectly safe shark cage and just decides he wants to swim with Great White Sharks!  We also get into his ultra running madness and early attempts and delusions about becoming a SEAL.  We also spend time on his newest passion, breathing.... We talk about recovery methods, hot cold plunges and a host of other things you've always wanted to know!
