This summer—for the first time ever—skateboarding will be an Olympic sport. In honor of its Olympic debut, we’re revisiting one of our favorite episodes: the story of how the best women skateboarders stood toe-to-toe with the most powerful people in the industry to demand equal pay.

In this bonus episode, we also talk about how Skateboarding’s entry onto the Olympic stage is a major achievement for the sport, but one not everybody is happy about.
