the open skate of podcasts:
a show for figure skating enthusiasts of all skill levels


Figure skating enthusiasts, adult beginner skaters and avid texters Meghan and Neda join forces to talk about current events in the world of competitive figure skating from the perspective of people who appreciate the sport but are far from sports journalists or professional commentators.

A deep-dive into song selection, outfit choices, dramatic falls and soaring successes, as observed by two theatre people with a lot to say.
