Bigger Spin / EP 006 - Soy Panday

Once again, Bigger Spin - the text-, image- and link-based complement to every new episode of Big Spin, the French skateboarding podcast interviewing key actors of the scene - is back and this time, Soy Panday is disclosed to be their latest interviewee. The man behind the Magenta Skateboards art direction as well as some pretty good frontside noseslides has a story we've shun light on before, but no one better than Soy himself to tell it; this Bigger Spin retraces his flow of thought throughout the interview just as much as his personal development along the years, dot by dot.

Bigger Spin / EP 005 - Benjamin Deberdt

It is now a LIVE Skateboard Media tradition that whichever new episode of the French skate podcast "Big Spin" comes out instantly sees itself supported by our very own complement of it, the Bigger Spin providing you with easy access to research matter regarding the subjects getting brought up in the interviews. And if you can't grasp French, then at least here you get to enjoy links and obscure references only the real will get! Today's interviewee on the brand new Big Spin episode just so happens to be the man, the myth, the legend from Barcy (with an "a", and no "-lona") and beyond: Benjamin Deberdt! Strong of the wisdom of someone having encountered skateboarding as soon as the seventies (which he will keep liking claiming!) and the playful mind of a child, Benjamin naturally grew up to become the man long time in charge of a lot of initiatives within the skateboarding press network, most notably launching the French magazine SuGaR twenty years ago, then extending his research with the creation of the European Kingpin then even beyond, with this worldwide takeover of a website LIVE Skateboard Media is. Broad is Benjamin's experience and urge to get more life out of people via countless public recollections of incredible skate stories (complete with photo proof), a way for him to exchange little fragments of existence and humbly help piece the world together. Marks of his personal experiences and relationships keep overflooding his office further and further from "oh, the boxes" and into people's minds, by the means of magazine contributions and self-publication (see This Was Just Now). Anyway, it is for certain that Benjamin took our opportunity of an audio podcast as yet another modern way to get to reach out to whoever would like to hear the quirkiest skate anecdotes, or laugh about life with him!

Bigger Spin / EP 004 - Bertrand Soubrier

Bertrand Soubrier has been on the board since the late eighties, and never once did he step off since. A man of phases, he's been a ginger, a Le Dome local, a professional, a tourist and more, successively, throughout the years. Beber is the man in charge behind the Haze Wheels and Basement Hill scenes, in addition to handling the fatherhood of his boy Martin.
