Professional BMX Rider / Professional Fly Fisher (with KC Badger)

Why have one scoop of ice cream when you can have two?  Why have one favorite singer (Rick Astley) when you can have two (William Hung)?  Why have one super awesome once in a lifetime job when you can have two?  KC Badger knows all about how foolish limiting yourself is, and in today’s episode he shares that divine wisdom with us.  The real life most interesting man in the world explains how he made the transition from professional BMX rider to professional fly fisherman, and why if he can double dip on life, you can too.
