For the fourth episode of the Then And Now Interview Series, I chat with Brian Freeman. Like myself, Brian started his skating career in Austin with Texas legends like Jason Howard, Mason Richard, and Zachary Gutweiler. In this interview, we go back to when we first met and discuss Brian’s early days in Austin, his influences, and his new sponsor Iqon. We also talk about his Bfree blade Acadamy, SkateIA, ways people can make money today blading, and cool things happening in the industry.

This interview is also available as a podcast on all major streaming services. Just search for “Then And Now Blading”. You can also listen to the podcast here.
