Episode 237: Skateboard Tough, by Matt Christopher (Special Bonus Episode)

$4.57

Welcome to our rad, bad, extra-jumbo bonus episode on Matt Christopher's Skateboard Tough! It's a jumbo episode because we spend at least 10 minutes reading the titles of every sport book for kids he wrote.

This episode attempts to answer the burning question in all of our hearts: what does Skateboard Tough even mean???

Included with your download: surprisingly serious conversation about childhood experiences and the importance of being seen, Matt Christopher's minor league woes, and activist journalism.

The song at the end is a snippet of Lupe Fiasco's Kick, Push, a song you should've heard by now.
