Derbyverse Episode 1.8, with Hockey Honey
Hockey Honey was the first double-length interview for Derbyverse, and my second “then and now” episode. The first part was filmed at the Everett Skate Deck in Everett, Washington on September 9, 2011. The second part was filmed at RollerCon in Las Vegas on July 25, 2012. I would have to say that Hockey Honey went through the biggest change of anyone between the time I first interviewed her and when her Derbyverse episode aired. When I met her, she was a relatively new skater for the Oly Rollers, and was commuting to Olympia for practice nearly two hours each way. Then, in the course of 10 months, she moved to Oly, then moved to Arizona, then moved to San Diego. One constant was her love of skating. And because Hockey Honey was so generous with her time and so open to talk about a variety of topics, she seemed like a natural subject for the season finale of Derbyverse.
