S. S. Roller Derby (Something Something Roller Derby Podcast)

Y'all, I'm in love. 3 episodes in and I am already hooked on this podcast. Hammer Abby and Allie Gator are fantastic hosts (duh), their guests are great, they cover great topics and all in a fun and organized way! They've talked about the history of derby with Blue Streak (creator of our modern track and the helmet cover!), officiating with the UDO Madison crew, and so much more! Catch up on their episodes ASAP!
