My friend, skateboarder and poet, Mat Lloyd has started making a podcast called ‘Skateboarder and…’.

I’ve been listening to them while working on the van and it’s a great series. The first episode features skateboarder and photographer Ben Gore. I found it really interesting hearing about another photographers experiences.

The second episode talks to skateboarder and illustrator Eloise Dorr. Again, I found it really interesting to hear about the creative process from someone who is in a slightly different field to me but so similar in some respects. What Eloise says about building experience and finding your feet really struck a chord with me.

The third and latest edition has skateboarder and furniture maker Barry Kay behind the mic. It was really good to hear about someone who has practical skills. Barry makes amazing things from skateboards. Another great episode.

I’m really looking forward to hearing more of these. I find them so interesting and it’s made me think about all the amazing people in the unicycling world. There are so many talented people that we only know as riders. It’d be really interesting to have this kind of thing for unicyclists.

If you’re into skateboarding or the creative industries, I highly recommend you give them a listen. Follow Skateboarder And on Soundcloud, Facebook and Twitter.

Mat, if you’re reading this, keep it up dude, these are rad!
