In January Cory and Tessa talked skating for transportation with Michael Anderson and Lillian Karabaic of the BikePortland podcast. Highlights include Cory describing skating with his daughter, and some in info on the mental health benefits of skating from Tessa’s survey.
Michael Andersen from BikePortland.org sat down with the NWSC yesterday and picked our brains about skating, transportation and future goals. We’re pretty stoked to know that our two-wheeled brothers are taking an interest in our work.
The guys over at the Sprocket Podcast were kind enough to share a beer and chat with us about skateboarding and what the NWSC is all about. Maybe we’ll see them on a skateboard soon!
