Podcast: The Insane Life & Times of Casey Brown

Jun 25, 2019
by Mike Powell  

Casey Brown has one hell of a story. This bad ass mountain biker’s life has been filled with twists and turns that I will not spoil in this intro. I will say that Casey had an upbringing different than anyone’s that I have met in my life. Based on all that Casey shares, you would think that she would have a totally different, maybe even strange personality. I found none of that, what I did find was an amazing athlete who knows all about highs and lows. It’s another incredible story.

 Super interesting life she has had. Did not find the judgement she was getting from Mr Powell cool though. So she walks around barefoot and grew up different yet for him if you deviate from the norm your a freak. Even after Casey states walking barefoot is pretty normal in New Zealand I could "hear" his eyes roll...and the comment about "high tech" shoes is just laughable! Millions of years of evolution has made our feet great and modern shoes are coffins that prevent natural movement and cause all sorts of problems.
Not even going to discuss the ad talk...

 I was the same. I didnt really see the point on whether she had a bf in high school or wore dresses to prom. Must be a cultural difference between american upbringing and Australia/nz. Casey is a legend and one of the most underrated atheletes in the international mtb scene.

 I think of Casey whenever I buy my kids a Clif Bar. After hearing that, I know I'm making the right decision. What a human.

 Great interview of a very interesting subject. The free ride sport has a potential for equalization using bike tech that is now readily available. If women need more power to compete against men in non-timed events, I say let them use e-bikes. On the other hand, no battery will give you the balls you need to ride like Casey.
