Freeland Spirits Jill Kuehler and master distiller Molly Troupe spice up the airwaves on episode #51 of the Puckfortland Podcast. We sample their amazing Gin made right here in PDX OR. Jill and Molly discuss their experience starting this company from the ground up and speak about their challenges and inspirations. Most importantly they express the love they put into making such an amazing spirit and the importance of celebrating the little and big things in this life. Family, Friends, Hard Work and Meemaw... It's really that simple. 

Ask for Freeland Spirits wherever you celebrate and enjoy, by far, the best Gin you will ever sink your lips into. 

All the Best Freeland Spirits and don't forget us when you take over the world!! Cheers

My new man crush Brad Pankey from Portland OR-joins us on the 48 edition of the Puckfortland Podcast. An avid runner and boogie boarder Brad approached PF in hopes to discuss the podcast world and what our experience has taught us over past 3 years. Brad's goal is to start his own podcast concerning cannabis and its places in peoples lives. Brad and I talk in depth about how cannabis, weed, trees, broccoli, Mary Jane, that sticky has become a booming industry here in Portland and the need for a podcast to help explain the nuances and sometimes intimidated questions somebody new to cannabis might have.

We salute you Brad Pankey for not only coming on Portlands number 2 podcast but for talking up the passion for the podcast game. We wish you all the luck and support!

Spoofy is the word I believe Kevin called it... A spoofy Halloween. Kev and I get lit while slamming spicey waters and not answering the door when we hear the trick or treaters knock.  For some reason, I kept thinking this podcast has put out more episodes and keep telling Kev he's like episode 49 on this show. Kev you're  actually episode #47... I think.

Kevin opens up about his life, being a Portland native and getting back into some sort of bike racing. Sometimes you need to just sit down and talk to somebody. I talk to Phomma. Who do you talk to? 

Suffer Now or Suffer Later


My next guest needs no introduction! Ok, that's a fucking lie, I'm sure the four regular listeners might know who Dylan Robbins is but for anyone just tuning in Dylan is the marketing manager for The Sufferfest.com.

As we embark on another episode here at Puckfortland we are honored to have our next guest grace the PF Network microphone, Paddy Gross, 26-year BMX veteran pro rider for Colony Bikes and Etnies Shoes. Take a listen to our conversation and keep this in mind as you travel with us on this amazing story. Paddy "Clears the Air" and gives us an up close and personal look at who he is and how he got here! He reminds us what hard work and dedication can bring if you just remember to brush yourself off when you fall and go no fucking hands when you air that shit out! We love you, Paddy! Thanks for sharing your story.                                                                                                    

"Riding a BMX bike made me see most of the world already, brought me many amazing people and it made me who I am. BMX taught me things school never could and kept me away from doing stupid things even if life wasn't easy sometimes. Well life isn't so easy again at this time but riding is letting me forget about hurtful things for a moment and nothing else matters other than me and that little kids bike. I am thankful to still have this passion and love for it after 26 years of riding." -Paddy Gross 

Staying Obvious

Friend, professional and all around nice guy Kyle von Hoetzendorff from Portland-based Yonder Journal and Manual for Speed joins us on Episode 40 of the Puckfortland Podcast. Kyle shares with us his experiences traveling the world and what it takes in today's fast-paced media environment to be one of the top bloggers in the game. Thanks Kyle for the funniest hour plus we've heard on the PF Network.

Just Tuite

Quit possibly the most anticipated episode of 2016 "Just Tuite" was long overdue. Tommy Tuite owner operator of Tuite Bicycle Repair in North Portland has been a long time listener and now he is a first time guest. We had the pleasure to talk with Tommy about what it was like making the decision to go all in and open up his very own shop here in PDX. With larger cycling shops closing their doors in Portland and across the country due to outdated business models Tuite Bicycle Shop has been able to carve out a special niche taking repairs and custom wheel building to a unique and personal (some might call it Artisanal) level. His shop is located at 2234 N Lombard in NoPo. Go check him out! You will be glad you did. 

Thanks again Tommy for coming on the podcast! We look forward to seeing you again soon! 



Spirit House Records

Let me begin by saying I'm sorry not sorry for the audio on this latest Episode of the PF Podcast. My amazing guest Johanna Warren took the time in her crazy schedule leading up to her 2016 Fall Tour to stop over and talk about music, life, spirituality, and how she has Co-Founded Spirit House Records to promote all the amazing music coming out of her label. It was so so cool to sit down in the middle of the day to just be real and get a great perspective on Johanna's strong work ethic and passion to make her's and others art a reality and to do it their way! Kudos JW

Check out Johanna's NEW EP Gemini I and catch her if you can here in PDX! She is truly the future of the PDX music scene and the world as well. Amazing music Johanna thanks again for coming by and letting me fuck up the audio and almost ruin it! The Show Must GO On! 



Glasys - Half Full

GLASYS delivers impassioned vocals, intricate keyboard parts and electronic soundscapes in one package that combines his many musical influences.

This fucking guy! Its rare that I'll say that my next guest is the best podcast we've ever had.... Ok I say that every time. But this time I mean it as much as all those other times. Gil Assays hails from Tel Aviv. I had the luck of running into him out in PDX and I was instantly impressed with this guys skills. He transported me to era of one too many bong hits and the Mahavishnu Orchestra cranked to 11 on my CD Walkman. Pure madness. Glasys fresh approach and intense dedication to his craft is a breath of fresh air for us here on the Puckfortland Podcast. 

Thank you Gil for stopping by and we look forward to the release of your new EP The Pressure. Fans of the PF podcast can check out his video and see him live at The Back Room on Sept 17th at 930pm. He will be performing with Coco Columbia and Rare Diagram.

The Back Room is located on  1036 NE Alberta St in PDX

Go check it out people! Thanks for all the listeners out there in podcast land and go to itunes and subscribe and rate our show. We love you for it!

Liquid Gold

Whisky or Whiskey? Here at Puckfortland HQ we don't really mind how you spell it as long as you are pouring it. Andrew Finkelman from The Old Gold here in PDX had the chance to speak with us this week about what he knows best. Andrew is not only the best bartender in Fortland but he is also teaching courses on the subject. Whiskey 101 courses start this September so if you are interested in this and want to sign up I would follow @theoldgoldpdx to stay updated on dates and times. From what we learned tonight they sell out really fast so be diligent. We also learned that Whiskey gets you feeling really good really fast, that's probably why Whiskey is the biggest trend happening around the country and world right now. Listen to Andrew tell stories of horrible customers, terrible tippers, and people trying to walk out on their tabs... and that was just the stories he had about me

Grab a glass, a large ice cube and your favorite Old Gold and join us for another fucking unbelievable episode of the Puckfortland Podcast! Enjoy it! It's Nice

Thanks Andrew! Next round is on me!  

Hello Human

You wanna get High Kid?! Well listen to this next episode of the Puckfortland podcast and you just might get a second hand high through your headphones! Dave G stops by from New Vansterdam dispensaries in Beverton OR. Dave was my pick for the very first guest on the Puckfortland Network and I am so happy to finally have the chance to get him on the show. His knowledge of the Cannabis Culture and Industry is second to none and his calm demeanor kept me from freaking the fuck out after three or four different Dab samples. 

Special thanks to our guest producers who helped with this episode. Sam and Courtney have a brand new show coming up on the PF Network so keep your ears on for that later this month. Sam actually steps in and takes us home this show due to the fact that I needed to go check my-shit and could not speak anymore. So thank you Sam for being such a pro! 

Thank you Dave for all you taught us and we cannot wait to have you come back soon! 

Go check out our NEW Sponsor Urban Float in Vancouver WA and if you get the chance book a tank ASAP!  They have a brand new facility in Vantucky and its out of this world good for you! Trust me,  you will love it as much as I do. Urban Float. 


Enjoy It Its Nice
