Skateboarding Podcast Review
If you’re a podcast lover or just want to hear from the pros we’ve compiled a list of some of the best podcasts out there for skateboarders.
The Blondey Show
Host Blondey McCoy is nothing short of a wordsmith. Listeners are captivated by his charismatic charm and ability to poetically narrate his unique perspective. The show often focuses on his career as a pro skater, artist and designer for his brand Thames. Coupled with thought-provoking commentary on the world through McCoy’s eyes. Possibly the best segment of the show sees fans offering up their opinions and disconcerting stories - often in response to a question such as “What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?”. And trust me the answers are hilarious. Whilst the show is still in its infancy, Mccoy has brought in some big names to guest the show, namely Mark Gonzales and Naomi Campbell, with promises of many more to come.
Head over to Spotify to check out The Blondey Show.
The Nine Club
At the very top of the skateboard podcasting scene is The Nine Club, only to be described as the OG. Just about every skater or contributor to the scene has been featured on their platform. Amazingly they have put out almost 400 episodes – WARNING! This will send you down a rabbit hole at 3 a.m.! It’s really just a bunch of skaters talking about skateboarding. Topics on the show cover a wide range: reminiscing over past memories; funny stories; unseen, unheard moments and chatting about the skate scene and the community within it.
