The Interview – Brock Dittus of The Sprocket Podcast

Brock Dittus of The Sprocket PodcastBrock Dittus has been a Pacific Northwest resident for his entire life, with the last decade spent in Portland, Oregon. He enjoys bicycling, camping, and exploring in the outdoors, and when it’s raining prefers coffee, books, and talk radio. He’s had a passion for long-distance bicycle touring since his first in 2008, and is always interested in innovative solutions to car-free living while at home in the city. Music is a constant companion in Brock’s life, and he says, “it’s always nice to have vinyl records, an iPod, or a guitar on hand to fuel that fire.” He’s hosted The Sprocket Podcast since 2010.
