Lunatic Fringe with Melissa Lowe

7/26/2021
A lifelong journey is the only way to describe Melissa Lowe's participation in the world of skydiving. Having firmly planted her feet on her own reputation built of hard work, good fun and amazing accomplishments, the now "Madam Director" of the USPA takes her time to sit down once again with me to discuss her role in "the Machine", her thoughts on change and improvements to our still growing sport, and her pride in the accomplishments of her father and the long overdue public...

Lunatic Fringe with Brian Germain round 2

7/12/2021
Taken from the pages of one of the greats, Mr. Moe Viletto, Brian Germain sits down again for something a bit more like story time, bouncing from naked jumps, bowling balls, the highs and lows of AFF instructing, living through your own fear and dealing with fear for others and the fact that like it or not, luck plays a part in it all (its just how much luck you're comfortable with). With 35 years and counting, Brian has stories galore to share with those both in and out of the Lunatic...

Lunatic Fringe with Shauna Finley

7/5/2021
Starting out in 2013 at a time when "something" was exactly what she needed, Shauna Finley came across exactly the right something. Taking over quite quickly, Shauna found that her passion for skydiving wasn't just the sport or even the people itself, but a drive to give back as much as she could to something that gave her exactly what she needed. Master Rigger, PRO rated sponsored athlete, Eastern USPA Director and enormous advocate for our sport, Shauna take a little time to sit down with...

Lunatic Fringe with Derick Massey

6/27/2021
Back in the can for another round, Mr. Derick Massey, 26 plus year veteran of the tandem game plugs in to talk to me about some of the most memorable, and flat out stupid moments he (and I) have had both in the air and on the ground. We talk about skill, luck, bad decisions with good outcomes, and what it's like to look back on more than a quarter century of experiences after paying the sometimes stiff physical and mental price for our time in the Lunatic Fringe.

Lunatic Fringe with Kevin Boorom

6/20/2021
On this edition of Lunatic Fringe, I take a back seat and give my tired stories a rest while Mr Brian Casserly takes over the hot seat to talk all things skydiving with his Pussfoot cohort and load organizer Kevin Boorom. From which boogies have the most ridiculous parties, to just how many jumps you need to have before you can go out and have fun with them, Brian and Kevin get down to a proper bonfire session to cover all the things that have drawn them to the Lunatic Fringe.

Lunatic Fringe and the broken bunch

6/13/2021
On this edition of The Lunatic Fringe, old friends and favorites to the podcast, Olga and Junior sit down to talk about, among other things, old injuries and new, and how sometimes the ones you thought were no big deal can have a way of coming back to haunt. With a few suggestions, tips and stories about what not to do, the three of us flop our bent and broken selves into the studio to see what we might have done differently, and what advice we can give on how to be and old and still vital...

Lunatic Fringe with Chris Stewart II

5/30/2021
Back in the can for round 2, Chris Stewart and I dispense with the more formal "get to know you" podcast, and just go straight to talking lifestyle, parties, close calls, wild times and stupid decisions! As a test jumper for NZ Aerosports, you might be tempted to think that Chris's close calls all came hanging under untested nylon, but you'd be underestimating his desire to test out daredevil stuff on the ground as well. Join in on this episode to find out about missing teeth, eyebrows and...

Lunatic Fringe with Scott Fitzgerald

5/24/2021
You'd be hard pressed to find many professions where twenty-five was considered a late start, but at the top of that very short list would most certainly be Freestyle Motocross, yet late to the game was exactly what Scott Fitzgerald A.K.A Toppdog was. From Mini's off massive ramps at the very beginning of his Lunatic journey, to the real deal with none other than the world famous Nitro Circus, Scott has gone big, almost from the start. With legends and friends riding along with him, the idea...

Lunatic Fringe with Simon Colmer

5/16/2021
It started with an accident onboard a commercial airliner over Austrailia, or at least the catalyst did. In an event that will forever be a part of Simon Colmer, part of learning to get past it was a bucket list that happened to include skydiving; yet for someone scared of heights dealing with the after effects of a traumatic experience onboard an airplane, it was one that took a bit of time to get around to. Now, splitting his life quite clearly between the "real" world of an IT job, and...

Lunatic Fringe with Troy Hartman (part 2)

5/9/2021
it's kind of an unbelievable list of accomplishments and stunts. X-Games Skysurfing World Champion. Super Bowl Halftime winning Pepsi Commercial pulling stunts with a goose. First ever to skydive from an exploding aircraft. First ever parachute on fire in flight... The list goes on and on. Yet if you had asked a young Troy Hartman what he thought he was going to be when he grew up, there was only one answer. Pilot. Unfortunately, as seems to be the case over and over in life, the plan didn't...

Lunatic Fringe with Moe Viletto

4/26/2021
With one of the most unique stories of how skydiving entered his life, Moe Viletto had just survived an impromptu zero gravity aerobatic flight by the skin of his teeth when he and his pilot buddy spotted canopies off in the distance. Knowing the instant he landed from his first jump that this was what life had been aiming him toward, he embarked on what this year would have been five decades of skydiving, rigging and BASE jumping. Living life on his terms as a rigging gypsy king, scoring a...

Lunatic Fringe with Joe Jennings (part 2)

4/11/2021
On the conclusion of Lunatic Fringe with Joe Jennings... From the X-Games to Good Stuff; from Hollywood to the Super Bowl, Mr. Joe Jennings has helped to shape not only modern skydiving through the lens of his camera, but was instrumental in bringing our sport to the forefront of pop-culture, entertainment and the masses. Like most, his first jump wasn't just entertainment, it was transformation, and on part two of Joe's chat on Lunatic Fringe, I get the opportunity to sit and talk with Joe,...

Lunatic Fringe with Kareem Madoor with Host DJL

3/29/2021
On this, his first time in the host seat, the familiar Mr. David Junior Ludvik takes the time to sit down with fellow skydiving instructor Kareem Madoor. Working as a management consultant, Kareem started to wonder if there weren't a little more to life than office walls and deadlines. With his first foray toward the Lunatic lifestyle, he found an affinity for scuba, then moved on to kite surfing, first as a student and then eventually as an instructor. By the time the idea of skydiving hit...

Lunatic Fringe with Jeff Weatherall

3/22/2021
As a young Kiwi, starting out with sport was a pretty natural thing, and Jeff Weatherall excelled. Surfing seemed to be a natural fit for him, and competition became the standard at a young age; but as is known to happen when you push for the top, Jeff found himself burned out on the waves, and instead put all of his focus into a sport he'd never considered before, wakeboarding. On his way to becoming an international champion behind a boat, he happened to catch a bit of footage of a guy...
