Bigger Spin / EP 010 - Ludovic Azémar

You're probably used to how it works by now, for every new episode of the French Big Spin podcast coming out, LIVE Skateboard Media drops the Bigger Spin, its complementary article packed with links and images aplenty, pertaining to the latest guest's words. And in this case, said new guest just so happens to be the Paris-based filmmaker Ludovic Azémar, and he's the author of videos that have most likely caught your attention before. Even if you can't grasp the spoken word in French, feel welcome to use this page and still flow through whatever it is Ludo has to say!

Bigger Spin / EP 009 - Sam Partaix

After many years of presence on the scene, the choice of Samuel Partaix for the guest of the latest episode of the French Big Spin Podcast was an obvious one. On Seb Chalot and Arnaud Dedieu's show, Sam shares stories pertaining to all things from his early years skateboarding to the skateshop he once opened in Tours with his mother, when he isn't recounting his life in Biarritz and more. This usual Bigger Spin article on LIVE Skateboard Media once again highlights the main subjects, and illustrates them with links aplenty!

Bigger Spin / EP 008 - Alix Malnati & Shani Bru

French skate podcast Big Spin is proud to have hosted two blossoming young women as skateboarding's representatives on the latest edition of their show. Alix Malnati and Shani Bru's voices make for an audible breeze of fresh air in a practice populary dominated by testosterone and the occasional macho attitudes, so you better catch that opportunity to listen to what the girls have to say! The satisfaction of skateboarding often comes with the price of a certain social emancipation (for better and for worse), even moreso as a female and this is exactly where individuals like Alix, Shani and hopefully you get to shine, unaffected by peer pressure and well determined to be their true selves, genuinely dedicated to their sincere passion with honesty and no damns given about any potential phantasmal prejudice. Get inspired by their strength (the kind of which you wish you had in your kickflips), and if you can't make any sense out of their delicate sentences due to being unable to grasp the French language then fear not, this Bigger Spin article comes to the rescue and punctuates their stories with photo et video illustrations. All you need is love!

Bigger Spin / EP 007 - Joseph Biais

The latest guest on the French skate podcast Big Spin is none other than a Joseph Biais strong of the opportunity to share his new web part, "Wavy", with you - another clip by a Romain Batard ("Giddy") who apparently never sleeps and never slips. Put the interview on, pump up the volume and enjoy the harmonious intertwining of Joseph, Sébastien Charlot et Arnaud Dedieu's respectively suave voices literally reinventing the French language, as your eyes skim through the following article in which the little kid formerly destined to be a Pierre Richard doppelgänger (he knows), now all grown up, narrates his own story, to the pace of the links and images punctuating the text below.

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.
