Brian Aragon - Podcast on The Powell Movement (August 2017)

Brian Aragon’s life sounded like a dream until he realized it wasn’t. He was a world champion pro skater and his video parts were as legendary as his park skills.

He’s traveled the world many times over, had 6 Pro Model skates, and a skatepark named after him all before the age of 30… And then he rolled away from it all to become the Inside Account Manager over at Arrow Electronics. Find out why on the podcast.

Arlo Eisenberg - The Powell Movement, Podcast (June 2017)

Arlo Eisenberg was once dubbed the face and voice of his generation and his story sounds like the best 90’s movie that was never made. Arlo, the punk rock kid from Texas drops out of the University of Texas and moves to California to become a star in a sport that isn’t really a sport yet. He arrives on Venice Beach, gets “found” and blows up to be a global sensation who lives a life that is every 13 year old’s fantasy. Along the way he stirs up a national controversy, hosts the X-Games and rides off into a world of graphic design. - Michael Powell.

I’m honored to have been interviewed for Michael Powell’s “The Powell Movement” podcast. We went pretty deep into the history books for this one, like all the way back to how my parents met and what I was doing before I discovered rollerblades. But it really does give some insight into the very early days of rollerblading and my career. Enjoyed the chat very much. Hope you enjoy it as well. - Arlo Eisenberg.

Chris Haffey: Podcast with Mike Powell (2017)

Chris Haffey is part athlete, part stuntman, part survivor. He’s a professional rollerblader who started getting recognition for his skating when the industry was at its peak and became one of the top skaters in the world as the bottom was dropping out. While his peers were leaving the sport to find other ways to support themselves, Chris landed on the Nitro Circus, touring arenas across the globe with a motley crew of bad-asses.
