Filmed on a special set inside Studio M at Monster Energy headquarters in Corona, California, the podcast is hosted by the dynamic duo of snowboard icon Danny Kass and Monster Energy brand personality The Dingo. Known for their deep roots in action sports culture, the two starred in the beloved cult TV show ‘The Adventures of Danny and The Dingo’ on Fuel TV for five action-packed seasons in the early 2010s. Both hosts have walked the walk as pro snowboarders and possess the interview skills to find common ground with any guest.
Speaking of common ground, former snowboard pros Danny and Dingo have plenty to share with Wallisch. On a trip down memory lane, the fourth guest on the Unleashed podcast details his early motivation for becoming a freeskier when the sport was still young: “I didn’t know that skiers were doing all this freestyle stuff. Once I saw it, I knew that’s what I wanna do!”
Aside from his online video fame, Wallisch also dominated the competitive scene in 2012 by taking Slopestyle gold at X Games Aspen, winning the overall Dew Cup, and claimed the 2012 Men’s Slopestyle World Champion title. While videos like 2013’s highly acclaimed ‘The Wallisch Project’ remained his focus, the Pittsburgh-native turned Park City-resident also found the time to set an official world record: In 2016, he went into the Guinness Book of Records with a 424-foot rail grind. He also founded his own ski film production outfit called Good Company.
For the past years, Wallisch has been drawing on his rich Freeski experience by working on the media side as a live commentator in ESPN’s Winter X Games competitions.
“I just like to keep being involved after so many years with X Games. It's THE event,” said Wallisch on the podcast. Speaking on this year’s edition of X Games Aspen, the first after months of pandemic shutdowns, he said: “We haven't had any events in skiing. So, it was great to see all the boys and girls go out there and throw down for a change.”
