Cheating Societal Life with Mathew Pritchard
In today’s episode I am talking to my friend Matchew Pritchard about growing up in Wales and going on to the life of his dreams. Learning to skateboard at what seemed like an old age to cracking life’s myth at such a young age. Feeling like he was an imposter and cheating life.
To how Dirty Sanchez came about and all the crazy stunts and party lifestyle that came with it. Dealing with the drugs fueled a mental and emotional rollercoaster. Stopping drinking to help with mental health battles. Loving animals wondering why the f*ck he’s eating them. Becoming Vegan, , a triathlete and still living the all or nothing lifestyle.
Crossing the Atlantic with two paddles, a boat and no snacks. The moment of surrender to nature and 30 meter swells to peace and tranquility and a frozen moment in time. Pure stillness, bliss and at one with nature.
Mathew Pritchard is a Welsh professional skateboarder, stunt performer, and celebrity chef. He regularly appeared as a stunt performer on Dirty Sanchez, Wrecked, and Balls of Steel. In 2019, he hosted the first BBC vegan cookery show, Dirty Vegan. He authored two cookbooks: Dirty Vegan and Dirty Vegan: Another Bite.
