NOFX is his favourite band and he’s mates with them. He buys vintage arcade machines and leaves them in bars across Brisbane. He had a brain haemorrhage in 2002 and told the doctors it was 1991. He won a drag racing championship on a 1978 Suzuki GS750. He’s a white belt in Jiu Jitsu. The guy even has his own action figure!
Enter James Straker. “Always Lurking, Never Working”. The ultimate Trouble Maker.
James is behind ‘We Make Trouble’. A website dedicated to his various projects. From his arcade machines to beer cannons to retro nostalgic treasures for sale, James is always involved in doing something that’s a little bit different and is dedicated to living the ‘Pirate Life’ – Always prepared to sail uncharted seas.
I feel like we’re kindred spirits in a number of ways and it was awesome to be able connect with someone as cool as James, using this crazy podcasting thing. A very fun chat and hope you all enjoy!
