Photographer and bladie Megan Petersen tells us about her ambitious Bladies project. Starting out with a few T-shirt designs, she hopes to expand it out into a central hub for bladies content and possibly get some money into hands of bladies. Joining us in the conversation is Detroit native Stephen Durasa.

Drew Costley is a born-again rollerblader. Born in D.C., raised in Virginia, and currently being educated in Berkeley, he is also photographer, multimedia journalist, and a fun person to be around. We talk about how the Disney movie Brink got him started rollerblading, why he recently took it up again, and what he’s been doing in the middle.

Ryan Lindsay was the first friend I made as we both earned our masters’ degree in journalism from UC Berkeley. She, too, likes to use sports as window into the bigger picture. 

You can follow her on Twitter as @RLindsayReports 

We talk about her early days of rollerblading, representation in action sports, gun violence in America, and much more. During our conversation, we, unfortunately, picked up the sounds of gunfire in my neighborhood.

NWST founder Preston Villanueva and Northern California’s Shawn Oberg talk with me over Skype about what’s in store for this year. We cover the parks we’ll be skating, where we will be camping, and where to get hella wine and legal weed along the way. You know, for when you’re done driving for the day.

Check out bladeordie.com to hear the podcast from the Montana trip and other goodies we’ll be talking about on the show.
