Excellent!

I love Jessica and Spencer’s dynamic! They have a great banter and all the latest gym news. Love it! I look forward to this podcast as well as behind the scenes every week.

LOL

Literally the best podcast ever! I look forward to every week’s podcast more than anything. Jessica and Spencer are absolutely hilarious, informative and will always give you the inside scoop that every gym nerd needs.

One thing that does get on my nerves is the preaching Jessica often does about Covid. They’re based out of California… and I’ll leave it at that.

Jessica’s politics…

I have a love/hate relationship with this podcast. I became a Club GymNerd member right before the Tokyo Olympics and stayed for NCAA. I absolutely love Spencer. He’s hilarious and I think he and Jessica play off each other nicely. But I’m running out of patience with Jessica’s constant pushing of her political opinions and “woke” agenda. I respect the knowledge and passion she has for the sport of gymnastics, but find her constant need to bring politics into literally everything off-putting and annoying. Also, it seems like Jessica has a lot of disdain for white people, which I find confusing since I’m pretty sure she’s white.
