Contact Me


If you like the podcast and just want to let me know, or know anyone good for an interview, please contact me. I try to answer all emails quickly.

Please join the Manleywoman SkateCast on Facebook or Twitter as well.

It’s inevitable that every four years when the Winter Olympics come around that some journalist somewhere finds my content. I’m happy to speak with you about upcoming events and educate listeners about the sport. Contact me!

Additionally, sometimes journalists find my site and use my content without giving proper credit. If you do this without asking my permission, I will know. If you wish to use a quote from one of the transcripts, please provide a credit to the Manleywoman SkateCast (and a link to my website if the article is online). Creating content takes time, and at the least I should get credit for the work I’ve produced. Thank you for understanding!


Thank you to Fiona McQuarrie for the transcription of the first 82 episodes. She did this by hand; when those episodes were recorded there were no online transcription services at the time. Thank you Fiona!

Thank you also to Callie Lipkin Photography for most of the banner images on this site. 

Support the Skatecast

These podcasts are a labor of love. I do them because I think skating history from all facets of the sport is important, and it’s fun for me to learn podcasting technology and combine my skating with my communication and tech skills. Hearing the stories of skating directly from the mouths of those who experienced it really gives a listener such a greater sense of meaning. Plus, I’ll admit it: it’s a blast to have an excuse to talk with my skating heroes on a monthly basis.

I am happy to offer them to you for free, and never want to charge for the podcasts. But donations are nice. Bandwidth costs money, as does the recording equipment and occasional travel costs to get to interviews. So if you like what you hear and have the ability to help out, here are a few ways . . .

1) please send a donation via the PayPal “Donate” button below. Even one dollar is nice. Think of me as National Public Radio for skating: I’m listener-supported!

2) Spread the word about The Manleywoman SkateCast to your friends via Facebook, Twitter, or by email.

3) If you are feeling generous, please give me a positive review at the iTunes Store! (You have to do it in the iTunes Store itself, so click “View in iTunes” on the left, and write a review.)

Thanks for your support, in all forms.
