Sometimes life changing inspiration comes in an instant and from an unexpected source. In Carol Pilon’s case, it was the split second clip of a wingwalker she saw advertised for a local airshow in 1993. She was transformed by the experience and knew that it was something she simply had to do.

Little did Carol know that it would take seven years for her to get her first opportunity to step out of the cockpit of a Stearman biplane and climb up onto the top wing. Eventually Margi Stivers, a veteran wingwalker herself and her husband Hartley Folstad thought she had waited long enough and took her for her first wingwalk. It was a life changing moment for Carol — she knew at that precise second it was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. (photo: M.

When our guest Dr. Eve Crane was just five her father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis which eventually led to his tragic, early passing. Five year old Eve decided then and there that she would dedicate her life trying to find a cure. She's still on that mission. It's an amazing story of turning a tragedy into a triumph of the human spirit. #DreamJob #Interview #Medicine #Pathology #Podcast #WomenInSTEM

As regular customers of +Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters we thought we pretty much knew their story. However, after sitting down with co-founder Sebastian Sztabzyb for an in-depth interview we learned there is so much to the story beyond their beautiful cafes in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Our guest on this episode of +The WorkNotWork Show Show is Paul Brodie: #Fabricator, #Artist and #Educator who in 1986 founded +Brodie Bikes, then a pioneer in the field of mountain bike design. Paul built thousands of frames over the course of his career and introduced many important design innovations such as the #Gatorblade composite fork and the sloping top tube, for which he was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame.

More recently Paul has gained an outstanding reputation in the field of motorcycle restoration as well the fabrication of meticulous reproductions of antique racing motorcycles from the 1920s. They have gained an international reputation and have been displayed in many venues including the +Guggenheim Museum in New York.

In addition, Paul currently teaches the art of framebuilding at +University of the Fraser Valley - UFV in Abbotsford, British Columbia. In over 50 sessions, his students from all over the world have successfully built hundreds of frames after learning the skills of the trade from Paul.

In 2016 Paul published his autobiography entitled "Paul Brodie: The Man Behind Brodie Bikes". It's a rollicking read, one which he will bring to life in this interview. You will find there are many more dimensions to Paul that you might first expect.

We sat down with Paul at his exquisitely well-organized fabrication shop near his home in Langley, British Columbia.

The new interview with +Tamir Moscovici of +Spy Films and Untitled, Inc. is out! In this in-depth, wide-ranging interview, we chose three of his films as a means of exploring his remarkable career: 'Urban Outlaw', his film about +Magnus Walker, 'Kaz: Pushing the Virtual Divide', his feature length film about Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of Gran Turismo and 'Painting Coconuts' about David Beattie of Slot Mods Raceways. It's a fascinating discussion about an amazing life.
