MVP of the Week: Mick Swagger
Mick is always an MVP of my heart but this week I wanted to give her a special shoutout for the work she does through her podcast, Off the Track. Not only is she producing one of the only regular, quality roller derby podcasts out there, but the topics tackled on the show are of great importance. I highly recommend you listen to the whole archive (next derby road trip?) and take some time to reflect and discuss with your derby circle.
In the most recent episode, Allyship: How We Can Support Minorities in Roller Derby?, Mick shares her own experience with bullying and oppression. Here’s what she shared on her Facebook:
Thank you Mick for spending your energy on this podcast (and all the work you do). It is truly one of the bright spots in derby and gives me hope.
