Throughout last year, derby folks filled their downtime with baking, gardening, and other kinds of socially distance-friendly skating. April "Jumpy McGee" Fournier (Maine RD, Team Indigenous) decided to pursue a long-held interest: public office! Last summer, she entered the race for one of Portland, Maine's City Councilor At-Large seats. I caught up with Jumpy back then. I found out what a candidate's life is like, how derby's primed her for this new, exciting endeavor, and why we all need to do our part to create the world we want to see. {{Spoiler alert: Jumpy won!}} Enjoy! --- Send in ..read more

What's up, peeps! I'm super pumped to introduce POP-UP SHOPCAST, an informal chat series with Black, Indigenous &/or Skaters of Color with entrepreneurial endeavors be they full-fledged businesses or nascent Etsy side-hustles. I've been motivated by these makers in our midst for some time now and have wanted to big them up somehow. Last year, I compiled a BIPOC biz list and have refreshed it a few times. This "Pop-Up Shopcast" series is meant to bring that list to life, to have these folks tell us about their work in their own words. First up: Taco Bruiseday and Ratchet, the midbestern si ..read more

Today’s guest needs little to no introduction for followers of skater social media.

Windy City Rollers announcer and coach Jumping Spider talk all about the 10-part ESPN/Netflix basketball doc THE LAST DANCE  about Michael Jordan and the ’98 Chicago Bulls' final quest for their sixth and final NBA Championship. Ourconvo went everywhere from my unresolved animus as a New York Knicks fan, who were routinely antagonized by his Bulls, to the parallels and differences between roller derby and basketball. Warning: Spider and I go into spoilers but I think it’s an enjoyable listen whether or not you’ve watched the doc.   **** Holding Space with Magical Wheelism is now avai ..read more

24. Movie Club: HAMILTON (ft. Coco Butther, Punkie Pie, & Scarbie Doll)
Holding Space With Magical Wheelism
by Monika Fabian
11M ago
What does a musical-turned-film cultural phenomenon about the US founding father Alexander Hamilton performed by a majority POC cast have to do with roller skating? Nothing but for the fact that many skaters are huge HAM fans. (Not to mention there's also a decent-sized Venn diagram overlap between musical theater nerds and derby peeps.) So listen to Coco, Punkie, Scarbs, and PEGGY--err, Magic--dissect why HAMILTON is so special, important and, at times, problematic. And yet we'll never be able to say no to this (musical)!  --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/s ..read more

Kaio-kensi is a trained neuroscientist who also happens to jam for Montreal Roller Derby’s charter squad New Skids. And while the competitive season is kaput. Her interest and passion for brain safety is a boon for us all, and we should always listen whenever she feels like speaking about the dome from the dome. Especially all y’all newbies who be on your TikToks and your instas sans protective gear!  When she agreed to come on to talk brain safety accessibility in our sport, I had no idea that I’d be meeting an athlete who would travel about five hours back and forth to derby--even to a ..read more
