I was looking for a roller skating podcast to learn more about skating and this podcast kept popping up. I thought it looked super dorky and I never gave it a listen. After listening to several other roller skating podcasts that I did not like or find helpful- I came back to this one and I couldn’t have been more wrong! This podcast is so informative and helpful for ALL skating levels. I learned so much about the mechanics of skating and there are so many takeaways that have made me a much better skater! Jeff’s passion for roller skating is infectious and you can hear it when he interviews his guests!
I just love this podcast! I literally had to listen to a couple of podcasts twice to take in all the great info.
I’m hoping that he brings back another season!!!
If you are trying to get into roller skating (and get good at it) it’s important to learn as much as you can about it! The host is super knowledgeable when it comes to roller skating, and it is very nice to put my headphones in and soak up all of the information while I’m cleaning the house or doing other mundane activities. He also has a very soothing voice and great dad jokes. 😂
Where is season 2?
I’m so grateful for your podcast. Is there a season 2?
