So useful!

This podcast helped pull me out of a funk last year when healing from a breakup. It’s such a great addition to my suite of well-being tools and I appreciate it so much. Thank you!

Appreciate Jimmy in the UK

Admission. Didn’t actually take to JS in his short stint at the UFC. Think his ‘love in’ intro with JR put me off. However, I’ve grown to love him. This show/podcast is great! Bursting with energy and informative. Rapidly becoming favourite MMA podcast from across the pond 👍🏻
