These are podcasts for hardcore skating fans. Although casual fans may like them too. After being really tired of the “fluff" pieces and articles put forth by the TV and print media here in the U.S., I decided to start this podcast. There are so many interesting characters … both famous and obscure … who make this wonderful sport tick, and frankly I think their stories and thoughts are far more interesting than what Johnny Weir ate last week, or what shoes Michelle Kwan is wearing. And since the regular media outlets don’t seem to want to give us more than the same old boring interviews and predictable questions, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

The current episode is listed below. Past episodes get archived monthly, so please look at the sidebar to the right for the archived episodes. Enjoy!
