Join The Fun

Andy Parry x The Powell Movement

Andy Parry and the Powell Movement

Mike Powell checks in with Skiing’s Resident Weirdo, Andy Parry in this week’s “The Powell Movement,” a podcast about skiing, the action sports industry, and probably too much rollerblading. To be fair, though, Mike didn’t talk about blading once in this entire episode, so that’s a win.

 

Listen here:

Mike and Andy dig into the life of a professional skier, the legacy of the LINE Traveling Circus, and what it’s like to be a recognizable face in a subculture that exists in even surprising places. But that’s not all; below, you’ll find Mike’s show notes.
