Sponsored, Episode 11: Greg Stump
On this episode of the "Sponsored" podcast, presented by Powder Radio, host Mike Powell interviews Greg Stump, who is among the most influential people in skiing ever. The man behind Maltese Flamingo, Blizzard of Aahhh's, and other classics, Stump changed the way ski movies look, feel, and sound.
Stump talks about his growth as a skier and then as a filmmaker, shooting Scot Schmidt, Mike Hattrup, and Glen Plake, who was always pushing the boundaries of, well, everything.
