    Carl Weathers

    Carl Weathers

    On January 30, 2024, we were honored to have a ringside seat into the multifaceted life of the legendary Carl Weathers. During our interview, Carl graciously shared insights into his NFL career, the challenges of breaking into Hollywood, immortalizing the iconic character of Apollo Creed in the Rocky franchise, and his full acting career. 
    But it wasn't just his illustrious career that captivated us; Carl also imparted invaluable wisdom, offering truly inspirational advice that struck a deep chord with us. 
    A heartfelt thanks to Carl for a conversation for the ages. #RIPCarl
    Thank you to FanDuel for connecting us to Carl.

Season 1

I just finished season 1 and I absolutely loved it. I have not looked you up on social media because I did want to have anything spoiled for me. 🤣🤣 Can not wait to jump into season 2 😄

Wow

I had this bright idea to move an hour away from work and needed something to pass the time by. I found this podcast and have been hooked since. I’m on season 3 episode 2 and it’s been the most entertaining podcast I’ve listened to in a long time.

I started golfing 2 years ago with an insane idea that I would be able to get to scratch in 5 years. This pod has made me think it’s possible. I’m in my late 20s (okay I’m turning 30 in 2 months.. whatever 😂), a super supportive fiancé and all the time in the world and sitting at a 23hcp. I feel like I’m just listing to the bros having a great time and it’s just getting better and better. Without being too long winded keep up the great work. I can’t wait to catch up and see the growth. Not sure if you still do shoutouts for the reviews but I guess I’ll find out in 2 weeks when I listen to the next 4 seasons 😂. Thank you both for being yourselves. Kudos to you.. and Kudos to Craigers.

Frauds

Mike and Eli have been given more time and resources to become better golfers and they mascarade around with single digit handicaps yet Mike shoots 99-102 in a real tournament. These guys are entertaining but 15 real world handicaps at best.
