Season 2

Episode 2.1 - Dirty Germans and Adult Children
Jul 26 2020
Episode 2.1 - Dirty Germans and Adult Children
The first season of the Storytime podcast was three episodes of scripted tales outlining some very life-sized motorcycle adventures.  I’ve still got stories and some interviews that I want to share, but I’m not sure if the scripted audiobook format is appropriate at the moment.  It’s a lot of looking back and remembering and frankly, more of an exercise in prose than adventuring.  And any story I have… started with a chat, and in retrospect, the adventure was the manifestation of the conversation that started it. For most of my motoring adulthood, there have been a few guys who have either instigated or at least supported this ridiculous  pursuit -  and conversations with these guys often start around some dumb idea or shifting opinion, and they inevitably meander and evolve over a few more conversations into some dumb event we’ve somehow committed ourselves to.For this season of Hole in the Head, I wanted to try and capture that evolution in real-ish time by setting aside some space every week with a guy I’ve known for nearly a decade now.  My friend Blaine and I have been in the middle of a few nowheres - and we even used to do a podcast together in San Francisco called Safety Third. When we started this project, I had no idea what it was going to be or where it would go.  In fact, it’s still evolving.   But, the meanders and non-sequiturs have taken root and begun a cascade of dominoes that lead to another adventure - this time, in the middle of a pandemic,  I hope you’ll join us as Blaine and I have some meandering heart-to-hearts about old cars and motorcycles, our families and how they all fit in our lives. And please do forgive the audio for the first couple installments as we were sorting the technical bits of recording virtually.Let’s see what happens…. I hope you stick around and enjoy Season 2 - "Everything is OK" from the Hole in the Head Moto Storytime Podcast.The Hole in the Head Podcast is an evolving conversation between Andy Taylor and Blaine Dehmlow.

Episode 2.2 - Mopeds and Death Threats
Aug 1 2020
Episode 2.2 - Mopeds and Death Threats
This season of the podcast is an evolving one, so if you haven’t heard the first episode yet, I suggest going back and starting there.  Last week I said that every adventure starts with a conversation - and with a certain point of view I can trace some pretty major events in my life back to a single comment or informal sidebar that seemed irrelevant at the time.I once worked in an art gallery with a woman who also ran a yoga studio - she was the nicest person I’ve ever met, so I had no argument when she said I should give it a try.  So I went to a few classes, was the only guy in the room and met this cute lady that I would eventually propose to in a hot air balloon in Turkey.  I don’t want to overly proscribe some butterfly effect hooey, but the fact is one conversation   an entirely new trajectory for my life.  It’s a fact.  And as I revisit these sessions with Blaine in the editing process, it’s kind of amazing to hear the unscripted groundwork we were laying, oblivious to the universe’s order or randomness - whichever you prefer.  In our conversation this week, we cover some pretty disparate topics, but mostly make fun of my choices of words and use of business software. But as Blaine reveals what he thinks is a clever way to praise one of my fancier motorcycles, he writes a proverbial check, that we're eventually gonna have to cash.The Hole in the Head Podcast is an evolving conversation between Andy Taylor and Blaine Dehmlow.

Episode 2.3 - Persistent Germans and Other Generalizations
This season of the podcast is an evolving conversation with one of my closest friends that ultimately results in a ridiculous endeavor, so I do suggest starting at the beginning.  In this session, the inevitability of adventure quietly expands.  At this point in our recordings, Blaine and I  no real ideas or scheme beyond just showing up, or really how this was going to be different than any other conversational podcast on any given topic.  But you can’t connect dots that don’t exist, so we persevered, without any dictate of arc or motive beyond talking about some things that brought us a little joy. And if nothing else, we could just make fun of people who were very much like ourselves.So when an old topic returned from an unexpected direction, it seemed a coincidence, but it sets up a line of dominoes.The Hole in the Head Podcast is an evolving conversation between Andy Taylor and Blaine Dehmlow.

Episode 2.4 - Buddies
This week's conversation was a turning point for our Pandemic Summer.  A moment of Craigslist weakness for me leads to a new Guzzi project and a potential life-saver. Blaine and I cover a few things: a pandemic purchase; the need for a buddy bike, a powerful universe and of course... some new Italian motorcycles.___Any motoring story I have… started with a chat, and in retrospect, the adventure was an inevitable manifestation of a sometimes completely-unrelated conversation.For this season of the Hole in the Head Podcast, I wanted to see if I could capture that evolution in real-ish time by setting aside some space every week with a guy I’ve known for nearly a decade now. Join me, Andy Taylor and one of my best friends Blaine Dehmlow as we talk trash and have some meandering heart-to-hearts about old cars and motorcycles, our families and how they all fit together. …and eventually, accidentally build something out of nothing. The Hole in the Head Podcast is an evolving conversation between Andy Taylor and Blaine Dehmlow.
