Roller Derby is an American invention but leagues are booming across the Atlantic too. In this boisterous and rollicking half hour you'll hear from players like Auntie Terror, Anna Mosity, and Debbie Does Malice, and find what draws them to the skating oval to get bruised and battered. It's an exuberant celebration of self expression and female aggression.
Roller Girls was produced by Eleanor McDowall, and it was a Falling Tree Production for BBC Radio 4.
