Skateboarder And... podcast with Lucy Raemers
This episode of the Skateboarder And… podcast we got to sit down with the very awesome Lucy Raemers.
What follows is a frank conversation about loss, grief, addiction and untimely the death by suicide of her brother - professional skateboarder Ben Raemers.
Whilst the main theme is heavy, there are many laughs to be had as we talk about; growing up with Ben, Woolworths, skate parks, selfies, Goosebumps skateboards, setting up the foundation, alcoholism, the skateboard community, SmiLe Films, the legend that is (friend of the show) Horsey, Rob Collins, Converse, the Grass Roots Charity, Suicide Awareness training, Slam City Skates, Palace, Lost Art, Nick Jenson, the girls skate scene, Go Skateboarding Day, personal grief and so much more. This isn’t just a good episode, it’s an important one.
