I’m loving this podcast

Thank you so much for this podcast!!! I’m loving the tips, the interviews, the topics, everything! I’m learning about roller skate with this podcast, it’s very fun to listen to, and Stacey & Amelia are amazing 🧡 Keep posting more, please!! And if you could, I would love to hear tips about balancing, transitions (forward to backward & backward to forward), and a “check list” of things to do every time we’re skating to help us get better faster (for example, 1. Stop with toe-stop; 2. Stop with T-stop; 3. Balance on one foot; 4. Go backwards; 5. Balancing on one foot (backward); 6. Crossovers; etc). I personally have a to-do list so I would love to add more exercises to it 🧡
