#100

If you want an excuse to hang out with your friends, drink beer, and bullshit, I highly recommend you start a podcast. What some podcasters could do in a year, we did in three and a half. We — Erick Garcia, Kennan Scott, Philip Moore, and I — take the show back to its roots in […]


#99: Derek Henderson

Fresno may be home to “hillbillies and gangsters,” but it’s also home to some serious shredding. Derek Henderson may be Razor’s latest pro, but he’s been holding it down in California’s Central Valley for decades. We talk about S9 bearings, his true top souls, what being pro means to him, and so much more. Follow […]


#98: Blade Havasu

Rock Town correspondent Levi Sebastian guides us through his weekend of skating and camping in “Arizona’s playground,” otherwise known as Lake Havasu. During the last weekend in February, Blade Havasu included skaters from all over the country (but mostly Arizona). Levi brought home interviews with Andrew Scherf, Ryan Buchanan, Austin Paz, Adam Caroselli, Chad Hornish, […]


#97: Charles Dunkle & Friends

Y’all ever wanted to hear from a ton of rollerbladers from Alabama? While back home in Alabama for his engagement party, Phil sat down with Alabama legends Charles Dunkle, Matty Schrock, Mike Buckalew, Shane Thompson, and Malcolm Heard. Talking around a table with some old copies of Rejects Skate Magazines, they talk Alabama skating, Roces/Valo/Them […]


#96: The Iowa-California Connection

Home may be where the heart is, but if it gets too cold, feel free to get out of there. Like me, Phil Austin and Josh Goodell were Iowans who fled the state in search of warmer winters, diverse topography, and burritos. We talk about food, Iowa skating OGs, and what Phil does not want […]


#95: Black Panther

Phil Moore watched Black Panther with his father in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. Brian Krans watched it in Oakland, California, which is important in the film. It’s also where both Phil and Brian live. In this spoiler-heavy episode, Phil and Brian talk about Black Panther’s significance in modern America — and the greater Marvel Cinematic […]


#94: Skookum

If you haven’t heard about the band Skookum yet, we’re sorry for not doing our jobs properly. In this episode, Phil Moore talks with the members of the all-blader band Skookum: Brian Shima, Sean Salazar, Brendan Tidd, and Pat Catilung. Follow them on Instagram @skookumtunes. You can directly download the episode here, or on iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play. […]


#93: Philip Moore #cohost

Hashtag-cohost was a resounding success, so now Philip Moore is officially in the Rock Town family. In this episode, I share some of my best mistakes as a blade podcaster, who really deserves the ‘Blade Author of the Year’ award. In this and future episodes, we’ll be talking about rollerblading, race, representation, and, of course, comic […]


#92: Hermanos

  After four years of painstaking labor, Ivan Narez and his friends — or should I say Hermanos — debuted the first of what will hopefully be many more video and book combos. We talk about all the work going into the project, what’s next, and the difficulty of shooting on film. Pick up a […]


#91: Gav Drumm

Behold, your champion! Gav Drumm was in the States for nearly three weeks. During that time, he took home first place in the Blading Cup, went down to Mexico, and filmed for the upcoming Valo 6 video. We discuss that, pursuing a master’s degree, and a whole bunch more. You can directly download the episode here, or […]
