Podcast: Wasted Woodward Weekend

Victor Arias guest hosts this episode of the Rock Town Podcast as he and friends invade Woodward West for a three-day weekend full of blading and other shenanigans.

His guests, including E. Rod, Dave Lang, B. Free, Peter D., Cameron Talbott, Matty Shrock, Raymar Hardy, and Chef Paco, host their own industry meeting and talk (often all at once) about the role of Rollernews, getting broke off, reaching out, selling out, and doing it for the love.

Highlights include, but are not limited to, B. Free with a pure profession of passion and the explanation of how Dave Lang’s hip ended up looking like this:

RTP: The Thing About Bill Cosby’s Penis…

Being a child actor is no easy game, especially when your childhood hero was Bill Cosby. Kennan returns to the Rock Town Podcast to exercise his demons while his cousin, Salty Jake, forces him through conflicted memories of Jello Pudding Pop commercials, anti-drug ads, and moving Theo out of the Cosby house. We’re long overdue for an episode, so […]


Blader Digest: Happy 20th Birthday, Rollerblading!

It may now be the year of the Hover Board, but professional rollerblading—the way we do it—turns the big 2-0 in 2015. It’s been two decades since aggressive inline skating got its first international audience with the inaugural “Extreme Games.” Yeah, rollerblading in the X-Games exists only in VHS-pixelated memories, but at least we’re more […]


Blader Digest Podcast: Bailey and Martz

Erik Bailey and Kyler Martz are Boise blading brothers, to say the least. In this episode, Erik, a Valo pro for nearly 12 years, and Kyler, whose art is ubiquitous in blading, talk about taking second place in a booty-shaking competition, famous blading spots in Seattle, suitcase tattoo parlors, the highs of painting indoors without ventilation, […]


Blader Digest Podcast #7: F33t Drinking Game S#!+ Show

What goes better than beer and blade flicks? Beer, blade flicks, whiskey, and a pre-determined set of rules designed to get your quite drunk. This episode feetures John Vossoughi, Matty Schrock, Danny Malm, Tyler Noland, Moose, and Young OG. They all watch F33t, the latest video from Lonnie Gallegos, while Krans and Tyler play the […]


The Unofficial F33t Drinking Game

Damn it, Lonnie. 2 Feet was one of my favorite skate videos, so it was exciting to see the long-awaited third installment of what I hope ends up running longer than Rocky or the Halloween franchises. F33T’s asking price of $25 online may give some buyers a bit of sticker shock, but since I’ve already […]


Blader Digest Podcast #6: Too Easy (with ESG and Kennan)

Fresh off 11 hours of emceeing the Blading Cup last weekend, Erick Garcia and Kennan Scott break down yet another amazing skating competition. To keep with tradition, there are plenty of shout-outs to the homies working, bladers, those who built the bulletproof course, “neggers,” F33T, the mystery of Canadian skaters, and the new battle cry […]


Blader Digest Podcast #5: Cameron Talbott

Cameron Talbott is the man and we here at Blade or Die are big fans of him. A Missoula, Mt., blader and all-around good guy, we were able to get Cameron to talk about blading in the north country, the skating scene in Indonesia, hunting, swimming, and other aspects of the mountain man life. This […]


Blader Digest: What Do You Do for Money, Honey?

Car accidents are the major killer of young adults in U.S., but if kids figured out how much work adult life is, suicide wouldn’t be No. 3 for much longer. I used to sarcastically (to the point of cynically) joke around at my last job that I was living the dream. I actually was in […]


The Blader Digest Podcast Ep. 02: Mead Avenue Hustle

I lied. There is a second episode. This time on the Rock Town Podcast, Krans sits down with Matty, Jay, and Moose at their apartment on Mead Avenue, one of Oakland’s most notorious drug havens. Besides open drug deals outside their living room windows, the boys talk lifelong flatrocker skating, the best riders to ever […]
