    Does anyone else not listen to blade podcasts etc?

    So I've gotten into this discussion a few times, I never listen to blade podcasts, I don't understand what the deal is but every time I get this feeling like people are saying I'm not into blading as much because I don't.

    Truth be told I skate a lot, both aggressive and distance stuff, and blading is already such a big part of my life I guess I don't see the point in listening to people talk about blading when I could be blading myself. That and if I do have free time to listen to something I'd rather expand my horizons or check out other stuff I'm into, I don't know this post is kind of lame haha

    Just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there like me, blade podcasts are akin to watching ESPN analysts drone on and on about stuff.

    I don't bother with them either, there are too many and they are often too long... Sometimes there will be some that appeal, but I always find it hard to make the time to catch up...

    I agree with your second para aswell, it sort of reminds me a little of a quote I read somewhere about music-
    "The best metal guitarists don't listen to metal"...

        I used to listen to the Mushroom Blading podcasts quite a bit. They're good when they have guests on but if its just Joey and Todd its usually just gonna be them waxing poetic about wizard frames or ranting and raving about big wheels for 60 minutes. I can only listen to so much of that and yes, it's like watching ESPN and listening to the hosts drone on and on about trivial shit.

        A great blading podcast would be alot of interviews with industry heads that we never get to hear talk like Broskow, Dave Paine, Farmer. So far, no one has executed this well. Blading Revival did a great job a few years back but they were way too ahead of their time, nobody was listening to podcasts back in 2008-2009. If they were around now I feel they'd have better success.

          I listened to my first blade podcast the othernight. I saw Jason Reyna was on bladeordie and he's the homie so I listened and I found it quite enjoyable.

            Those Kevin Dowling podcasts were funny as fuck and the mushroom blading one with wasted CK crying after KCMO was quite interesting as well. Sometimes I'll go to watch one and see it's like 100minutes long or some shit and just say, "no way.".

              Very rarely.

              Finding time would be tricky, plus there are better things to do - nothing against those who make them.

              A couple of the Mushroom podcasts when someone's interviewed have been good. Feel they wussed out a bit when they interviewed Julio - spent a lot of time praising him/Valo when any other time I've heard them making jokes at Valo's expense.

                  Those videos are pretty great. If we're counting those as podcasts (assumed we meant audio only) then I'm definitely into those.

                    I listen to the drama ones after everyone brings em up. Otherwise the occasional mb more often krans but only if I care about who's gettin interviewed, which isn't that often. I've debated getting into podcasting with my bud Kellan for a while

                      Do it! The more perspectives and media out there by bladers the better it is for everything blade related. Much better idea than a T-shirt or wheel co. As far as listening to them goes, I skate so often during the Fl winter I tend to do my listening/catching up in the summers on days it's way too hot/muggy to think about going outside. I really enjoy them all though, the older Kevin Dowling ones were the first ones I heard and I remember liking them the most.

                        I would imagine most bladers don't listen to blade podcasts.

                          Believe you thinking of SK's appearance on MB podcast. That was intense. I'm guessing he may regret some of that. Which segues nicely into CK. CK podcast with MB was tame and I thought it was cool how he owned up to things he said in the past when he was younger.

                            I like the podcasts but it's more something I do while driving to/from the session. But would never think less of bladers who don't listen to podcasts. I would laugh if someone said, "Dude you're just not even really into blading". But I could see my 13 year old self saying that haha. Back in the day you'd have poseurs ... kids who had blades but didn't skate. But now with maturity I think it's dumb to have a strict interpretation of what constitutes being 'into' blading. Blading isn't a team sport with rules and that's one of the best things about it IMO.

                            The interview podcasts give news and insight from industry folks and tell about upcoming products etc. Personally I wish there was more blading content. More articles, more edits, more podcasts. To your point my driving time could be spent listening to podcasts on topics more useful to my life. Always good to expand

                              Rolling revival was great. It got me into podcasts. Is Tim still involved in blading?

                                Most of my free time goes to skating or watching skating, but I can't do the podcasts. Some of those things are 45+ min long, c'mon.
                                Even though I'm genuinely interested in what some skaters have to say.

                                and murder tastes good.

                                        I spent a large majority of my work time in a car (I am a sales rep) and they make for good listening rather than the radio.. an be quite interesting too!

                                          Peoples interest in anything varies. Some blade once or twice a year. Some only have one set up, etc.

                                            They released a VOD a year or two ago. It takes lots of work and is a side project to their grow-up lives.

                                              Have never listened to any podcasts tbh. Not sure if I can do it if it's just random local dudes talking about rollerblading. Would love to listen to an interesting interview with let's say Farmer for around 20-30 minutes.

                                              It would be cool to see pros commenting on their section like on nikeskateboarding.

                                              The concept is basically pretty simple and would watch every god damn episode of it. AJ should really do it with the sections that are already online.

                                              Other cool thing would be to see rollerbladers having vlogs. Like Braille Skateboarding - where they do all kinds of funny and interesting stuff and basically standard things they do - games of skate, learning new tricks etc.

                                                Podcasts are like muesli - there are a few little nuggets that are awesome in amongst all the bland shit.

                                                Case in point: the Dan Liefeld MB podcast: http://mushroomblading.com/podcasts.php?id=166

                                                  One of my favorites. When there's no new podcasts, I sometimes listen to that one. I think MB was trying to get a second podcast with Dan. But hasn't happened ... yet.

                                                    I'm not a fan of podcasts at all, but that's the only one I've ever listened to and it was amazing.

                                                          Brian krans has a good podcast too.

I like Krans' not-as-judgemental-as-others style of cast and the general casual nature of it... Nice use of time too, an hour and a half and kept it interesting and flowing well...

                                                                                    Fascinating to hear the back-story for some of those death tricks in leading the blind

I tried listening to the blade or die podcast and the quality is awful. Learn how to use audio equipment if you're going to have a podcast, he had a lot of good guests too so that was a bummer. Also I listened to one where one of brett urbas' friends was on not long after he passed and the host was being pretty disrespectful. Poor kid is talking about how great of a skater and friend brett was and dude kept going back to how he was a park rat and stuff like that. He didn't mean anything by it but it was uncomfortable to listen to, felt bad for that kid. Mushroom blading is fun to listen to, I was listening to a bunch but fell off but I will download some because I enjoyed their interviews. As mentioned rolling revival was great. I had a bunch of those on my ipod shuffle long ago.
