#79: Andrew Scherf and Dan Howard

Phoenix is a hot place in June. Like 120 degrees (49 C) hot. Since it was too hot to skate, Andrew Scherf and Dan Howard podcasted in air-conditioned hotel room. We talk about the damn heat, trends in rollerblading, and things that want to kill me in the desert. You can directly download the episode here, or […]

#78: Adam Bazydlo

Adam Bazydlo (a.k.a. Bladezilla) is a hammer-foot drop-rail skater from the South. You may recognize him from his solo sessions on Instagram, the cover of ONE Magazine, or from the new VOD, “Moments in Time.” Adam came to the Bay Area with his wife, Kaydee, to visit friends. So, naturally, Phil Moore and I had […]

#77: Blader Union

If you’re like me, you’re realizing that Facebook isn’t the best place to get your news, especially if you’re behind on the latest VOD. For a long time, rollerblading has deserved a better solution to aggregating blading content besides Rollernews. That’s why Daniel Nodzak and Travis Stewart—the moderators of /r/rollerblading on Reddit—started BladerUnion.com. The site […]

#76: Feet Four

If you’re as big of a fan of the Feet video series as we are, you’ll be pumped to hear that Feet 4 is in motion. Lonnie Gallegos, Jeremy Soderburg, Jonathan Labez, Rob Guerrero, and Mike Obedoza visited Oakland for the weekend to get clips for Feet 4. After a full day of skating, we […]

#75: Ian Walker (feat. Taylor and Malm)

It’s always nice having friends over. Hailing from Denver, Ian Walker is an avid filmmaker, the king of the Scumpire, and an overall really nice weirdo. Our conversation goes many places, not stopping shy of guns, gimps, and other family-friendly topics. Danny Malm and Taylor Kobryn add to the catastrophe that is this episode. While […]

#74: Boschi Pope

Boschi Pope was out filming in the Bay and swung by to record a podcast. Boschi is a New York City skate legend. In August, he hosted the Boschi Pope Skate Off at the Hamilton Bridge Skate Park next to the Harlem River. It was a month after his release from an eight-year prison sentence. […]

#73: Chad and Brad Anthony

Chad and Brad Anthony are twin brothers who rollerblade. Chad and Brad Anthony hail from Kentucky, but this last year, they were everywhere. From the A-Town Stomp and the Blading Cup to Schmidty’s Ramp and Camp to the Windy City Riot, the Southern Scrum boys put some miles on their Winnebago during their “Born Free […]

#72: Matt Murphy

Matt Murphy is an OG NorCal native. Since Murph and I had an hour to kill on our way to a session in St. Helena, I hooked up the audio gear in my truck and we recorded on our way north. We talked politics, comedy, what skating means now versus when we were kids, and so […]

#71: Shredpool

Shredpool is, well, he’s not Deadpool, but they are kin. They both stab people for a living. One talks about taking his rollerblades to a skatepark to show kids how it’s really done. This one does it. Ol’ Blade Skillson talks about his stockpile in the League of Xsjados, who can help him get himself into […]

#70: Jason Reyna

Jason Reyna is everywhere, from being the “Daniel Kinney of the Blading Cup” to being in Chris Haffey’s corner at the Nitro Games. Reyna was in Oakland for a turn-and-burn for work, so we took the opportunity to talk about being grown grommets, the different styles of skating today, what’s in store for the Forecast […]
