Holding Space with Magical Wheelism


Sep 26, 2019

Modern roller derby's cult classic Whip It is 10 years old today. In honor of this auspicious occasion, I am joined by skater and noted man-bun connoisseur, Curly Fry, on a rewatch of Drew Barrymore's 2009 film. We talked about Whip It's significance within derby and the teen movie genre, how well the movie and its depiction of derby have aged, and imagined what a 2019 reboot might include.
