KRUX Brand Manager Alex White just wrapped up the work week with a major email mic drop, announcing she has hired Kristin Ebeling as Team Manager. Alex has been on the grind over at NHS for the last year, building the KRUX team into one of the most diverse, talented groups in skateboarding.

The discussion starts at about the 8:25 mark but go ahead and listen to the whole thing, this podcast is pretty legit. As someone who probably wouldn’t pursue a podcast featuring dudes talking about skateboarding, originally I tuned in only because I knew Alex and Kristin were featured in an earlier episode. Since, I’ve became pleasantly surprised by the insightful commentary of Ryan Lay, Kyle Beachy and two guys named Ted; Schmitz and Barrow.
