Erik Bailey and Kyler Martz are Boise blading brothers, to say the least. In this episode, Erik, a Valo pro for nearly 12 years, and Kyler, whose art is ubiquitous in blading, talk about taking second place in a booty-shaking competition, famous blading spots in Seattle, suitcase tattoo parlors, the highs of painting indoors without ventilation, puking in host bathrooms, mormon bladers, and more. 

This episode was recorded Dec. 27, 2014, in Erik's living room while the rest of his family was sleeping, so you're going to need to turn it up a bit.
