Keeps getting better!

I’ve been listening to barbell shrugged for a couple of years now but lately I have been loving the podcast even more since Dan Garner has come on! So enjoying his wealth of knowledge and view points on how health, performance and body composition come together in a more holistic way. Also really loving the topics lately! Keep it up guys! Y’all are now one of my favorite podcasts!

Low Signal, High Noise

Guys, a little organization and clarity in the message would go a long way. I’ve listened to numerous episodes only to get 30 mins in and realize I haven’t heard anything of actual substance. Just a bunch of half-thoughts and interjections and giggling. Perhaps consider what you’re trying to get across with each episode, then distill it and eliminate all the fluff and filler. Would be appreciated.
