About Samuel:

Sam loves to discover new places, even more natural ones than big cities. He sees Parkour as a way of improving himself in general. A tool to discover, use and explore his mental and physical possibilities as good as possible. A way to keep playing with his environment no matter where he is, to keep this childish spirit that gets lost too often and too easily. He also loves to share his experience and hopefully inspires people to get into Parkour as he thinks that everyone can take advantage of it – one way or another. We had a talk about creativity in Parkour, old generation and new-gen Traceurs, competition and Parkour Parks and obstacles made for pk.

About PKast:

The PKast (Parkour Podcast) is a mix of interview and conversation about Parkour. My name is Philipp Raasch and I am member of ParkourONE in Cologne, Germany. I am teaching and practicing Parkour since 2003. During the past three years I travelled a lot and had the opportunity to talk to many traceurs around the world. There is a Podcast-Feed where you can listen to every PKast:  PKast is now on SPOTIFY and iTunes. Just search for „PKast“.
