Derbyverse Episode 1.7, with Joyride
Joyride from Rose City was the first interview I did in two parts. I shot the original bit at the Burnside Skate Park in Portland, Oregon on October 8, 2011. But then when I was editing her segment in the late spring of 2012, I realized that a lot of it was dated and I wanted to check back in. So I interviewed her a second time at RollerCon in Las Vegas on July 29, 2012. In the first part of the interview, she talked a lot about the personal challenges she’s had due to roller derby – money problems, family problems, and so on. I was curious to see how things had changed for her. This “then and now” interview was the result.
