The Hell Yeah Roller Derby Podcast: Episode Four [Bonus Minisode]

A brand new episode of the Hell Yeah Roller Derby Podcast is available now! This episode sees us deviating a little from our usual format – no interviews and no topic as such, just me and Robyn catching up on our respective derby lives now that we’re based at other ends of the country. We also discuss some ideas for future episode themes – if you’ve got suggestions for topics you’d like to see us cover or people you’d like us to try and interview (maybe you?!) pop over to the Facebook page and let us know. We’ll be back early in the new year with our next full-length, chock-full-of-interviews episode.

Listen now on iTunes or Soundcloud.

The Hell Yeah Roller Derby Podcast: Episode Three

Robyn leaving Croydon

Episode 3 of the Hell Yeah Roller Derby Podcast is out now! In this episode we’re talking transferring leagues, something that’s very close to Robyn’s heart after her recent move from London to Leeds (sob). As well as chatting with Robyn about her experience so far, I talk to Heironymous Bash, a skater that’s experienced transferring not once but twice and has just departed Croydon Roller Derby, her latest league, as part of an international move back to the states. Also in this episode, we read out some listener comments on transferring that were shared on our new Facebook page (check it out!). In this section we mention Sarah Byng AKA Dropkick No Mercy’s several useful blog posts about transferring leagues which you can find over here.

Find the episode on iTunes, Soundcloud or your podcast app of choice.

The Hell Yeah Roller Derby Podcast: Episode Two

That’s Robyn and me (left) goofing around painting plates like the cool kids we are.

Our second episode is out now! You can find it on iTunes, Soundcloud or your podcast app of choice.

In this episode we’re talking recruitment for roller derby with not one but two (!!) interviews with some seriously interesting women from Bristol Roller Derby and South West Angels of Terror (S.W.A.T), two leagues that have found innovative ways to improve their recruitment of rookie skaters. (Sidebar: We didn’t talk much about recruiting Officials this time around, but we think it’s a really interesting topic so expect a future episode on recruiting refs and NSOs!)

Our first episode generated some interesting discussion about cherry popper games on our own Facebook threads, and made us realise that we hadn’t created a space for people to put in their two cents about the issue covered in an episode. So now we have a Facebook page! Go there are tell and us what recruitment techniques worked for your league, people you’d like us to talk to in future episodes, or just how daft you find my faux American accent.

Listen on itunes or Soundcloud.
