In this podcast: 

At 39, Wheelie Wayne is the godfather of Baltimore's 12 o'clock guys, the dirt bikers who have been a source of irritation and fascination for years. DeWayne Davis has gained international notoriety — and a friendship with rapper Fetty Wap — for his skills on city streets. Videos of Davis balancing his bike on its rear tire have won millions of views on YouTube. He has 208,000 followers on Instagram. Fetty Wap has come to Baltimore to hang out, ride with Davis and pick up some pointers. In  today's episode, Wheelie Wayne talks about dirt bike culture, the current crackdown by Baltimore police and the prospects of creating a dirt bike park to get riders off city streets. Also joining us is M. Holden Warren, Baltimore-based filmmaker, photographer and community activist who sees business potential in a dirt bike venue along Baltimore's infamous "highway to nowhere."
