Episode 28 - LookFly Steve on 10 years of an ethical Ultimate business

July 17th, 2013

This week I am joined by Steve Giguere; famous from both BlockStack TV (the best sofa based Ultimate TV show) and LookFly (UK's Ultimate clothing & gear suppliers). 

In this episode we talk about both! 

Steve describes the energy and passion (and learning!) that went into creating BlockStack TV; "the hottest sofa based Ultimate Frisbee internet TV show ever to rock your digital world". 

We then talk about the amazing story of LookFly, which was started over 10 years ago and remains the UK's only Ultimate clothing manufacturer & supplier. Along the way Steve describes the importance that environmental ethics & local suppliers has for LookFly and the challenges and opportunists this provides.

Episode 26 - Dan ‘Stork’ Roddick on the early days of Ultimate

July 3rd, 2013

Dan Stork Roddick and Cribber USA Ultimate Hall of FameThis week I am honoured to have Dan 'Stork' Roddick on the show. Dan is one of the great pioneers of all disc sports. 

After discovering the original "flying saucer" at age 5 he later was the MVP of the first college Ultimate game in 72; on that famous parking lot in New Jersey. Between '75 and '92 Dan was "Director of Sports Promotion" at Wham-O, where he had a huge impact on the growth of Ultimate and all disc sports. He is credited with framing the "Spirit of the Game"; still a fundamental aspect of our sport. Dan Stork Roddick playing Ultimate Frisbee in 1972

Dan, very deservedly, has a place in USA Ultimate's Hall of Fame - though he has also had a been instrumental outside the US - for example he helped to found the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF).

I could spend forever listing Dan's achievements and impact on our sport over the last 40 plus years, basically he is an absolute Frisbee legend and it is a great honour to have him on UTalkRaw.
