The last thing skateboarding needs is another podcast hosted by old heads who interview their buddies. Eventually, all of the stories and episodes start to sound the same. That’s why we decided to create something different that focuses on the future voices of skateboarding. Introducing, “Okay, Last Try” hosted by Noah team rider, Elise Hedge, and myself, Larry Lanza .
To avoid all of the devastating pitfalls of becoming a jaded bitter skater, Elise and I wanted to reach out to our younger peers and at least attempt to stay connected.
For the second episode of “Okay, Last Try,” Elise and I sat down with Una Farrar and Poppy Starr. We were able to catch them while Una is in Australia on an extended “Olympic” related visit to be with Poppy. We talk about the documentary being made about Poppy’s life, Una and Poppy’s upcoming vid series with Vans, and to get the episode rolling, Elise pops off about receiving unsolicited advice at the skate park. Enjoy!
