In this, Episode 187, Johnny chats with Hamcat and Darth Evader, two members of the Sacramento Roller Derby. Sacramento Roller Derby was created when the Sac City Rollers and Sacred City Derby Girls, both of which operated in the great Sacramento area for over a decade, combined into one entity in 2018.
In this episode of the show Johnny chats with Hamcat and Darth Evader about Congress investigating the team for violating monopoly laws after the two teams joined together; if you played roller derby in a while, or been to a game for that matter, why you need to start going again because of updates to the rules made by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association; sliding vs. thudding; the attraction Hamcat felt to roller derby while going through a mid-20s crisis; when ice hockey didn’t work out for Darth Evader, why roller derby caught her attention; the reasons Sac City Roller and Sacred City Derby Girls ultimately came together to form Sacramento Roller Derby; and why Hamcat and Darth Evader recently switched the positions they played.
