Check out part 2 & 3 of the Todd Richards-laced Todcast: The Movie.
VBS.TV have a lot of good videos. And there’s even some good ones that go balls deep into snowboarding’s nitty gritty, as you’ll know if you’ve seen any of their Powder & Rails series.
Now they’ve taken ex-Morrow pro, O-Matic owner and TV chatterer Todd Richards’s funny-assed Todcasts and expanded them to fill a movie. Part 1 dropped yesterday, and so here’s Parts 2 & 3. Here’s what’s up…
After years of being a professional athlete Todd’s life as of late is filled more and more with gigs in the world of kooky TV presenting and amateur web casting. The thing is, these little podcasts, or so called “Todcasts” are taking over. Is Todd Richards, the once pro-snowboarder god, now a comedian/TV host/filmmaker? In Todcast The Movie VBS.TV takes a look at what exactly he’s doing with his little camera, as Todd embarks on a mission to New Zealand to road trip with the Quik team riders.
Todd Richards had his professional snowboarding hey-day a few years ago and has transitioned into a new career based on his telegenic personality. He travels the world commenting on sporting events like the X-Games and the Olympics. Though absurd, his observations are uncannily revealing and often self-deprecating as they call attention to the questionable mega-plex the extreme sport industry has become.
