On this episode of the "Sponsored" podcast, presented by Powder Radio, host Mike Powell interviews Colby James West. West and Powell discuss West's career arc. Now out of skiing, West is looking for acting and voice work in Los Angeles, while experimenting with drift car racing. "I’m going to figure out my own way to do it," says West, "and I want to show how I can be unique and separate from that crowd.”
