Best jiu jitsu podcast

This is a fun and informative podcast that has helped keep me motivated in my early jiu jitsu journey. As a 43 year old white belt it can be pretty tough at times, and the way Nick explains things can really keep perspective for me. Best podcast to listen to on my hour long commute!!
