Great Podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast since the very beginning. I love listening to their point of views, and ideas for the future for big men.

Try a KC Bier Dunkel!!!

A friend told me about this podcast a few weeks ago and I LOVE it!!!! As a gentleman of size, I really appreciate a lot of what you guys talk about and have learned a lot from you. One recommendation I wanted to make (in honor of the Kansas City Chiefs making it to the super bowl for the first time in 50 years) is to try a Kansas City beer!! KC Bier makes a really delicious dunkel...

Thank you guys so much for the podcast!

Chad

PS: just got my new order of bearskn!!! Sooooo comfy!!
