Long Underwear Podcast
Long Underwear aims to strip off the layers and get to know the skiers and snowboarders underneath the ski gear. Hosted by professional skier Amie Engerbretson, there’s only one rule: after introductions, there are no more mentions of skiing and snowboarding allowed.
On this podcast, we aren’t after the stories of the biggest lines skied or favorite pieces of gear. Not this time. In this podcast, we want the embarrassing stories, the ones about the missteps and the mishaps. We want to know about the search for balance and constant quest to find adventures in the day-to-day. We’re looking to take an honest close up of all the goofy and beautifully unique angles of our mountain heroes.

Commercial fishing as a family affair, the importance of keeping your hands forward, the Spice Girls, dreams of being on the LPGA Tour and stories of sockeye salmon that will make you cringe.
Life as motor-head, comic book nostalgia, the problem with too many cooks in the kitchen, buying the house his grandfather built and remembering when he fell asleep at his own wedding.
Massive cliff drops, success outside of skiing, baby dragons, Steely Dan and why most of his products are named after computer science terminology.
The Olympics, hosting SNL, the best advice he’s ever received, and the major pride associated with seeing a project from start to finish.
