    106 - Relentless

    106 - Relentless

    What does it mean to be relentless? What would it be like to shed your fears, failures, and worries about the expectations of others? What would it be like not to hold back anymore and be true to yourself? 

    This week is part 1 of two episodes inspired by The Last Dance, the documentary that explores the career of Michael Jordan and the championship journey of the Chicago Bulls.

    PUNCHY O'GUTS Special Guest! - 105 - Inclusive Coaching and Return to Play Training

    PUNCHY O'GUTS Special Guest! - 105 - Inclusive Coaching and Return to Play Training

    This episode, I spoke with Punchy O'Guts of 4EYES Coaching + Publications. Punchy is invested in using positivity, compassion, and forward-thinking to connect with, challenge, and inspire athletes. Punchy has published FIVE manuals for training those in roller derby as well as several articles in Five on Five Magazine. 

    This conversation focuses on a curriculum for safely returning to training on the track. What should we watch for? How do we know when our skaters are ready for the next stage? (apart from WFTDA guidelines, of course)

    Then we turn to the topic of Inclusive Coaching. To quote Punchy's blog: "Coaches have an incredible amount of power. It’s so important to acknowledge the power we have and use our leadership role to make derby culture more inclusive and safe. We can make intentional decisions so that our behavior, decisions, and language are not focused on creating a space that is only safe for white, cis folks. We must actively choose to create a space that is inclusive and safe for marginalized folks."

    104 - Racism in Roller Derby: Don't Pass the Star

    104 - Racism in Roller Derby: Don't Pass the Star

    We need to address racism in ourselves and in our teams and leagues. Don't juke around it. Break through the wall. It's a harder path and can be really uncomfortable at times, but we can come out stronger on the other side. Do the work.

    In this episode, I talk about the broader meaning of words we have heard for decades. We can't go further in our pursuit of Anti-Racism in roller derby and our lives until we understand more about what these words mean. I'll be sharing a couple examples of what this looks like in roller derby and want to give a trigger warning in advance for any BIPOC who don't have the space to deal with that right now. I believe changing our systems and way of thinking about racism has to take place before we can go on a mission of recruitment for people of color to join our leagues. We can’t bring them in until we take some meaningful steps to make our house better before we invite people over. There are cracks in the foundation and we’ve been throwing a rug over it and not noticing they exist. Then I’ll go over some examples of how to approach meaningful interactions to help correct these problematic situations one on one. How do we talk to someone when they say something racially problematic? And how can we receive this information graciously when we make a mistake ourselves? Let's hold each other accountable and move forward together.

    ERIN JACKSON Special Guest! - 102 - Embracing Opportunities to Learn

    ERIN JACKSON Special Guest! - 102 - Embracing Opportunities to Learn

    This week, we get to learn about the inspirational journey and competitive mindset of Erin Jackson.

    Erin Jackson is a jammer for Jacksonville Roller Derby AND Team USA Roller Derby. Erin grew up in inline speed skating with many national championships and was named Female Athlete of the Year for Roller Sports three times. Months after learning to ice skate, surprising everyone including herself, she qualified for the 500 meters long track speed skating event at the 2018 Winter Olympics. It was also announced in early May that Erin is on the US Speedskating Long Track National Team for 2020-2021. Did I mention she’s doing all of this while furthering her education?

    BALLER SHOT CALLER Special Guest! - 101 - Racism and Call-out Culture in Roller Derby

    BALLER SHOT CALLER Special Guest! - 101 - Racism and Call-out Culture in Roller Derby

    This episode is NOT sponsored by Mota.

    “Don’t stop having conversations because it’s uncomfortable. I’ve been uncomfortable 32 years of my life. It’s ok for white people to be uncomfortable for the next couple years if it means that everyone is going to be equal and not judged because my skin is different...

    Social Media has given people this keyboard warrior mentality where they just say awful things about human beings. Ok, this person messed up and they’re trying to remedy it. NOPE! Once this person, always this person and there’s no rehabilitation and you’re awful and you should jump off a cliff. What in the world has our community and culture come to?...I think the issue is that we’re calling people out with no resolution.”

    Please share this episode...the message is really important.

    This week's topics are racism and call-out culture in the world of roller derby. The special guest is Baller Shot Caller. Baller has played for Gold Coast Roller Grrls, Atlanta Roller Derby, and Team USA Roller Derby and has been voted as captain for all three. She excels at jamming and blocking and often plays as pivot and is a traveling coach with Tuff Love Coaching.

Awesomeness for your ears and heart

My first ever podcast I’ve listened to and gets a lovely pick me up. Loads of helpful tools, honesty and positivity. Can’t wait to tell me teamies to have a listen xxx

Egfhvdgbxdgbacob ,

Thank you

I love this podcast, it really helps me work things out, and think about them in different ways. Pew pew!

Apollojon ,

It’s a great resource

It was recommended I listen to the “Un-Coachable” episode and boy am I glad I did! I’d give it 5stars for this one episode alone. I’ve always struggled to concisely explain how the actions of skaters, that they may not even know they’re doing, can be translated by us in the middle.

I’m now making my way through the back catalogue to find out what else I’ve been missing!
