The latest round of Imprimatur BMX Podcast has arrived. This time around Mike Hinkens caught up with Ryan Fudger to talk about his role and time at Ride BMX and the way media has changed drastically over the years. This was recorded BEFORE Ride got shut down, so I would imagine certain things have changed, but for the most part it’s accurate of how things were and the way things have changed with Social taking over and everything. This is an interesting listen, so hit play and take it all in.
“In this episode of the ImprimaturBMX podcast, Mike Hinkens talks with RideBMX.com brand/content director Ryan Fudger. They take a deep dive into the story of RideBMX’s transition from one of BMX’s major print magazines to an online-only media site. Other major topics include: How the internet devalued print and led to the draining of resources from the industry, the murky metrics of the online platforms we now rely on for sharing media, and the evolution of RideBMX into an adapting and enduring institution of BMX.” – Mike Hinkens
