Jump Rope Community Foundations with Billy Wildi (#19)

Jump rope was the first activity I had as a notable creative outlet. Whenever I’ve been creative in other domains […] or publish my own work, I’ve always had that model in my mind.” — Billy Wildi

Billy Wildi (IG: @BilltWildi, YT: @BillytWildi) is a long-time jumper, from the UK. I’ve technically known Billy digitally for over 10 years, as we both used to create and post jump rope videos on YouTube when we were first learning our skills. We haven’t ever chatted over the phone before, so this was an extra fun conversation, getting to discuss “the old days” with somebody who shared a decent portion of that time with me. We chat about so much in this episode, including the early youtube network of jumpers, changes in training over the years, Billy’s favorite skills, frustrations with jump rope, and a bunch more.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
