We got a long show this week with a pretty good interview. That’s why it took longer to get this one ready for you guys. We’re going to be talking to one of the guys behind the EBR documentary that just came out on the heels of EBR going into receivership, “The Ragged Edge.” If you haven’t watched it yet, I’d really recommend going over to Vimeo and giving it a rental. It’s a pretty fascinating story.
One of these guys may be our guest, but it’s not who you think.
Our guest this week is Joseph Sousa, one of the producers behind the new documentary, “The Ragged Edge: An American Comeback Story.”
From the site:
“The Ragged Edge” is a documentary about survival on and off the racetrack; about riding the edge between victory and oblivion. Its focus is Erik Buell Racing (EBR), the only American sport bike company. EBR is now racing for its survival. This documentary combines the power, excitement, and tension of motorcycle racing from the point of view of teams in the pits with the equally powerful stories of a company trying to make it through a financial maelstrom and the personal survival stories of working families in America’s heartland.
So… it’s a little out of date. As part of all the weirdness regarding EBR’s sudden drop into receivership was this movie coming out like a day or so later! We have Joseph on to give us a behind-the-scenes look into the multi-year project and what Erik’s like at dinner. We talk about how they took the news about EBR and the effect that’s had on the film.
I can’t stress enough that this is a documentary worth watching. Head over to Vimeo and check it out for sale/rent: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/theraggededge
