Have you ever wondered what your favorite skaters listen to while they’re on the treadmill, cross-training, cleaning the house, walking the dog or mentally prepping for that monster tourney? Ever considered what soundtrack motivates a fantastic athlete to push it to that “Eye of the Tiger” next level, or what beats take them to their happy place away from it all? Well wonder no more! Tune in as longtime derby vet and Dallas-based DJ Trigger Mortis embeds herself in the derby combat zone, digs in and asks a different skater each week that all-important, ever-pressing question; What are you listening to right now?
