For our last episode before Longpoint we are finishing up the series of interviews with Sword Carolina and including an interview with the founder of MEMAG.
Matthew Stinson interviewed Ashley Polasek of Sword Carolina. Ashley is a Women's Longsword competitor and Gold medal winning student of Sword Carolina. She also has a podcast of her own called the Baker Street Babes, an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans dedicated to approaching the fandom from a female point of view, as well as engaging in fun, lively conversations about the canon, film and television adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work, and associated topics. Her podcast is available on iTunes.
