As part of ORMHOF's dedication to preserving the history of the sport of off-road, we are pleased to announce a partnership with the podcast series, "Conversations with Big Rich" to record oral histories with inductees of the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. The first episode sponsored by ORMHOF will be available starting Thursday, March 2, 2023, and features Hall of Fame inductee Marty Fiolka.
The Conversations with Big Rich podcast hosted by "Big Rich" Klein was launched in April of 2020 and has aired more than 150 episodes to date. The weekly podcast is available on all major platforms, including Apple, Audible, Sticher, Spotify, Google, iHeart, Pandora, Amazon Music, and YouTube. It is also available on the Conversations with Big Rich website. After an inductee is interviewed, their podcast will be available to be streamed directly from their inductee page at ormhof.org.
"Having the opportunity to record the oral histories of past, present, and future legends within our sport is an honor that I'm thrilled to undertake. I'm looking forward to learning everything I can about these great men and women of ORMHOF." -- Big Rich Klein
Big Rich is perhaps best known as the promoter of W.E. Rock, a rock-crawling series he formed in 2006 and continues to be involved with to this day. Even before W.E. Rock, Rich was involved in rock crawling and off-road racing with CalRocs and Valley Off-Road Racing Association (VORRA). He also promoted Dirt Riot 4-wheel drive endurance races for ten years starting in 2011 and has been the publisher of 4Low Magazine since 2017.
Rich's wife Shelley works behind the scenes at W.E. Rock, 4Low magazine, and Conversations with Big Rich to ensure things are running smoothly. Rich and Shelley can often be seen at off-road and rock crawling events, helping out wherever there is a need. They have worked with the Rebelle Rally for many years, as part of the sweep team. Shelley also volunteers with ORMHOF and was instrumental in organizing the Hall of Fame's Dusty Times magazine collection.
Conversations with Big Rich will continue to feature people in the off-road industry in addition to Hall of Fame inductees. Subscribe to Conversations with Big Rich on your favorite podcast platform.
