The Pedalshift Project 014: Epic bike tours and muddy slogs

On this episode we crack open The Journal to travel along with Brock and Adele on their 2012 bike tour from Oregon to Colorado, test out a couple of field microphones for proper bike touring podcast recording in The Lab, and enjoy the newest Pedalshift bike touring story about a muddy slog called It’s All Downhill From Here

The Journal

Brock and Adele
Brock and Adele’s 2012 epic bike tour of the west is the featured journal this show. You met Brock Dittus on Pedalshift Project #002, and for the love of all that’s good and right in the world please listen to Brock’s work on the equally epic The Sprocket Podcast. Now go for a long virtual ride with Brock and his wife Adele up some steep hills in the summer heat… Start with my favorite, Tolstoy gets the axe.



The Lab

It’s a very meta edition of The Lab where we’re testing out two microphones. The first is an iPhone boom mic (no longer available… hmmm) and the second is the venerable veteran of Pedalshift field recording, the stock iPhone earbud mic. Which microphone shall reign supreme? Yeah, wasn’t even close…
