The most important voice in BJJ
I cannot say enough good things about this podcast. Tim “MUSHMASTER” “JITS-BAE” “DOUBLE LEG PAPI” Spriggs is a super talented athlete with a VERY well educated perspective on two things I care about deeply, Black Lives and Jiu Jitsu. Nico is a brilliant woman who adds an invaluable presence to this show. As much as I was down with Tim and DJ, Tim & Nico’s BJJ GOONS is a completely different animal. Their potential is limitless. It’s clear what their ambitions are with this show and I feel they can achieve whatever they want. They provide very thoughtful commentary about the BJJ community, the training mindset, the current state of the sport, and provide a platform for many athletes who do not get as much shine as they deserve.
FLO and their peers are sterile. They give you the necessary headlines, dates for upcoming grappling tournaments, injury updates, and sassy commentary on Instagram posts. BJJ GOONS gives you so much more. I walk away from every show knowing more and more about this community each and every time. I haven’t trained in over a year due to the pandemic and this show has helped me tremendously. And for those criticizing the audio quality...give them time. This is not NPR. I do live audio-visual professionally and the value of the content far exceeds the supposed shortcomings of their technical ability.
In the begin of the podcast the sound was not great but over time it’s gotten better. As a Bjj practitioner and tournament grinder I like how you talk about things behind scene of jiu Jitsu that fans of the art don’t always hear. Also the honesty you show in your opinions whether controversial or not is great. Becoming one of my favorites
