Great Host / Great Show

Fun and interesting interviews! I’ve been trying to be better about supporting good podcasts by leaving positive reviews. As I’ve been doing this I can’t help but notice people that admittedly have enjoyed many episodes but then leave a negative review about a particular episode. These are garbage people. Podcasts are FREE entertainment. We need to support guys like Arik who put out a fantastic show with great guests. It’s a lot of work!

Great podcast

I have learned a lot of really good information about training by listening to these interviews. As an instructor, I find the insights valuable. My personal favorite episode is the interview with Ron Avery. I’ve listened to that episode at least a half dozen times. Check this one out. This podcast won’t disappoint.
