We don’t normally repost episodes from the numerous #skatepods out there, but this one with Jereme Rogers and Andy Roy was too much of a magnificent car crash to just pass along.
It’s no secret that we’re longtime fans of Jereme. He was the first skater we ever interviewed for the site and his parts in PJLWHL and Yeah Right! were on repeat throughout the Jenkem team’s collective childhoods. For better or worse, his infamous sack was also seared into our brains.
As most already know, Jereme left sponsored skateboarding to dedicate himself to rapping, “freeing” his mind, and conducting various business ventures, mostly non-skate related.
A semi-recent and very funny Instagram feud with Nyjah put him back in the spotlight momentarily, suggesting he may have finally gone full kook mode. But Andy Roy, a questionable character in his own right, was able to get Jereme to sit down long enough to explain as well as he could what he’s been up to ever since his exit from the industry.
To save you a lot of time (and mental health) we made a handy timestamped guide below to keep your mind from imploding.

It’s a shame how these two guys were in a room together and the opportunity for a missile strike on the building was missed.

Tweaking in way or another? All I’m saying is, I’ve seen those sniffles and shakes before. Wonder if it’s tough for Roy to be around that during his stint of sobriety.
