We continue our preview coverage of this year’s Big 5 tournament season and set our sights on our backyard: Western regionals! Bay Area Derby Girl Eva Menace joins us to talk about hosting Bay of Reckoning, and of course we take a look at the match-ups we’re anticipating watching in person next weekend. Yes! IN PERSON. Megatron, Pitchit and Chrome will be in Richmond next week. We’ll do our best to look busy and official.
But THEN! L8R SK8R jumps in to even the gender score and talk with us about the recent WFTDA rules clarifications, complete with a jumping Justice video. You will stay sober, though, as he only utters the drinking game word once.
A hearty THANK YOU to everyone in Listenertown who helped fund Go-Go Gidget’s Kickstarter campaign! Because of your generosity her documentary on the Vagine Regime is that much closer to completion. Since we’re talking VR: did you know the boys of roller derby also want in on the queer fun? Check out the Disco Sticks!
We also want to show our appreciation to our listeners, and fans of roller derby in general, who are not afraid to voice questions about and criticisms of our sport. This week the cast chats a bit about friend of the show Kevin G’s phone call from last week, and we address an email we received from a concerned fan after a recent Minnesota/Kansas City bout. As much as we choose to celebrate the best sport we know, we also value the somewhat awkward and challenging process of growth. We humbly thank you for considering us an important resource and avenue for you to share your concerns. It makes all of us better when we keep lines of communication open. Of course, y’all know the channels to contact us. Please use them!
Finally, near the end of the show we talked about the Fundraiser to help with Holly Gohardly‘s insurance deductibles & associated costs from her breaking her collarbone. Please click the link if you’d like to help.
