One of the best out there!

Very well done.

AdamKreutzer ,

Top tier wrestling podcast

Baschamania is for sure one of the top wrestling podcasts out there! They provide a great look into the sport that many other outlets do not offer. I have even started rooting for Cenzo and a few other Penn State guys even as a Buckeye Wrestling fan!

FC Grappler ,

Listen more.

Justin needs to stop talking and listen. I’m not that interested in his life experiences so much as the wrestlers he is interviewing. I fast forward a lot but grow very frustrated and usually turn it off. Sorry to be critical because I’m very interested in the guests he has on his podcast.
