Bikers of a Different Stripe

World to the Wise Podcast

In the fall of last year we began an occasional series on American subcultures. We all know that it is unwise to paint American culture with too broad a brush. And that was proven over and over again as we talked to people from just about as diverse backgrounds as you can get. From the Amish culture to the Nashville songwriters culture, to a Native American tribe to the Indian American subculture. And we’re not done! Today I’d like you to meet three fascinating and passionate people: Lurch, Giggles, and Hoss. No, they're not action figures or cartoon characters. They're bikers who add an interesting — and maybe even lifesaving — twist to the biker culture. I hope you enjoy listening to them.
