Crystal Gibson Interview | Balancing Studio Owner Life

Sarah:Welcome, Crystal! Crystal:Hi. Sarah:Welcome to my podcast. It’s back! I took a little hiatus but wanted to bring it back, and I want you to be my guest on, so thank you for giving me some of your time. Crystal:Oh, thank you so much. Sarah:Today, I wanted to talk to you a little bit about your career change, how long you’ve been in the pole dance industry. You’re one of the OG’s, but how long you’ve been in the pole dance industry, and how your career has changed and developed over the years into what you’re currently doing now. Crystal:Into the motherhood of the pole industry. Well, I started back in 2001 as a little 18-year-old stripper in Seattle. My friend lured me into a strip club, as a way to pay for our rent, as we were living in Seattle. I was a country girl, so I was living in the country, and I had no idea about dance, or pole dancing, or that it was even actually a thing. I went to church three days a week. Crystal:And then I was like, “Okay, I’m going to move to the big city.” We moved there and she’s like, “Oh, I want to be a stripper.” I’m like, “Oh, what’s that?” She was going to do this audition night. She dragged me in, and I was hooked. I saw this girl called Cherry on stage, and she was whipping her head in a really tall, Russian ponytail. Obviously, they’ve been around before the Russians. I was like, “Oh my God. I have to do this.” I went the next week and signed up for the amateur night, which the winnings was exactly how much it cost to get the licence to become a stripper, and I won, so that was kind of fun. Crystal:And then that started stripping. And for me, it was a source of money, but I became addicted to the stage presence, and being on stage, holding the power, holding the space, and the lifestyle, actually having money for once. That was pretty cool too. But with that, comes a really hard party atmosphere, and I went down some paths that were really easy for an 18-year-old to go down, drug wise. And so, it put me in situations that I wasn’t really so proud of at the time. I knew with my upbringing, that I needed to eventually get away. Crystal:To make a long story short, I eventually ended up quitting stripping and I went back to school in Washington DC, where I went to school for broadcasting and communications, to work in radio and DJ. Sarah:Nice! Crystal:Yeah, that was fun. I did that for a few years and met my husband in Miami at a music conference that he was working out. He’s a DJ, an international DJ. He’s been doing that for a long time. I still wasn’t doing pole. I did build a pole, which is like from Home Depot.

Tiff Finney | Too Confident? | Episode #021

Tiff Finney joins me in this podcast to discuss her journey to finding her style, what inspires her and potential festival recommendations… Sarah: Welcome to … I did actually just try and start it and then she was like, “Wait! Question.” So we had to do it again. So, Hi Tiffany probably for the third time I’ve said Hi now… Tiff: Hiyaa! You alright? Sarah: I’m alright. Can you show everyone your tits ‘cos you’re wearing one of my tops? Oh it looks so good. Oh! And the leggings too! Tiff: I just fell over trying to do it. Sarah: You covered it well. You covered it well. It’s fine. Tiff: Nice. Sarah: And how are you gorgeous creature? Oh yeah, I’m not even wearing Off The Pole wear. I feel bad. I should be branded… Tiff: You suck, mate. Sarah: I know. Oh well. So how’s life? How is … How is everything in Tiffany’s world? Tiff: All good. Just keeping on at it. Got loads of workshops, I’m around the UK constantly this year and we’ve got an intensive pole weekend this weekend. Just trying to keep on dancing as much as I can. ‘Cos I feel like sometimes I don’t get enough time. Sarah: Yes, this is very true. I think there’s a bit misconception with people who are, like, professional pole dancers. That we just hang out and train and dance all day. When, in fact, it’s like completely the opposite. We actually get, like, a little half hour/hour snippet where we record as much as possible and then just throw that on Instagram for the next month. Tiff: Yeah. The idea is that you record within a half an hour period and that’ll last you for two weeks. Sarah: Yes, sometimes even changing outfits midway through the training session to make it look like you’ve actually trained more often than you actually have… Tiff: That’s exactly it.

Stacey Clare | The Ethical Stripper | Episode #020

I was lucky to sit down with Stacey Clare, The Ethical Stripper and Co-founder of The East London Stripper Collective to discuss her recent press surrounding stripping and feminism, an article written in the Metro and her appearance on Good Morning Great Britain with Piers Morgan. She was very informative and I highly recommend checking out the links throughout and at the bottom of the article for further reading on the subject. Sarah: And we’re on! So, welcome Stacy Thank you so much for giving me some of your evening. I know we’ve just been talking off camera as it were about you having a busy time with buying flats and running around the country doing interviews and things. So thanks for giving me some of your evening. Stacy: You’re welcome. Thanks for inviting me on. Sarah: And so for those who don’t know a little bit of an intro to you: one of the co-founders of the East London Strippers Collective and can you maybe give us a little bit of background about how that came to ...
