Breaking Chains is the first podcast to focus on the grass roots of disc golf, the amateurs, the local clubs, the individuals who make a difference, and those who have had their lives changed because of the sport.
Rockfish Productions began ten years ago, when Dan Hornberger produced Rink Rats, a video chronicle of the Western Berks Street Hockey Rink. With access to one camera, a few lights, and a microphone, Dan traveled all over Berks County, interviewing players, managers, and referees, all of whom fondly remembered their days at the rink. Over the next few years, Dan produced and directed several full-length documentaries, including STANDARDIZED, an exposé of the testing industry that plagues public education. That film gained a great deal of exposure, from articles in The New York Times and The Atlantic to a spot on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. The latest film from Rockfish is Redlines to Treasure Hunts, a documentary on the history and collecting world of Hot Wheels.
In 2016, Dan was bitten by the disc golf bug and instantly fell in love with the sport. In late 2019, he produced the podcast Breaking Chains because he wanted to focus on those players and clubs who are not only growing the sport but also making a difference in their communities.
