Stab editor-at-large and producer Ashton Goggans returns to the Lineup Podcast. He talks about what he's been up to over the last few years, including launching Stab Premium, creating the documentary Andy Irons & The Radicals, working on a new Electric Acid Surfboard Test and Stab In The Dark, and making surf movies while being locked down in Los Angeles. He describes watching the Rip Curl WSL Finals from Brazil and shares his thoughts on the format, Steph's historic win, Filipe's breakthrough, the surfers who impressed him most, and why he was rooting for Jack Robinson. He talks about working for the past six months on No Contest (dropping this month), evolving it from a behind-the-scenes tour show to more of an in-depth travel show, partnering with Red Bull, his Bourdain-like approach, and all the wild places the show has taken him over the past year. Ashton also touches on what he'd love to see Steph Gilmore do next, Electric Acid Surfboard Test's disruptive collaborations, the dominance of Brazilians on the Championship Tour, what's coming next for Stab, and what his job title actually means.
