Champion Podcast of the Common Man

Writing this review as I wait for a beer league softball game before mine to end. Only fitting one of the teams wears lime green jerseys with who else on the front but a huge Taz. Is there any activity more suitable for Fat Boy Summer than beer league softball? Drinks some beers, athleticism not required, effort level completely up to you. Hustle to first base, or don’t! No judgement zone.

Discovered this podcast little over a year ago and not being able to finish an episode really puts a damper on the week. Have also successfully converted my brother to a daily listener and I am constantly sending clips on Instagram to my friends about stories that will most likely be in the media the following couple days.

The title of the review says it all. Nothing make me chuckle to myself like a moron in the car quite like the Hard Factor boys whipping them up in a frenzy about Hunter Biden. Keep em coming and HAGFD.

!@%!@#^% ,

Today I stopped being a bum.

Long time listener that just never submitted a review. Hand up, very bummy move by me. Better late than never?

WARNING, DO NOT WATCH AROUND SIGNIFICANT OTHER

the show has it all, sexy anchors, exciting stories, and everything else you need to make Yourself far too sweaty and uncomfortable around your significant other. My girlfriend sees me as I listen on as if I’m
Phyllis from the office listening to 50 shades of gray, and get nervous I’m cheating on her. When she sees my phone and understands what I’m doing, she gets far more confused, and wishes I was just cheating. PRO TIP, listen to while taking a cold shower, will counteract effects from these four gigolos.
