Hey guys, some of you might know us from our in-depth ski, bike, outerwear, etc. reviews (might have seen some of them referenced in Gear Talk).

But we also put out the Blister Podcast, and our guests have included a number of skiers, ski company founders, etc.

Obviously the big news this week was J-Lev's acquisition of 4FRNT. So we talked to Levinthal and 4FRNT founder, Matt Sterbenz, about the deal, what brought it about, what we can expect from 4FRNT going forward, and the state of the ski industry -- and indie ski companies -- in general.

You can listen to the podcast here, and for more information on Blister, check out blisterreview.com
