    What better reason to turn on a microphone than getting drunk at home and deciding you need to make fun of your friends for trying their hardest at something?

    A Comprehensive List of Dorks

    A Comprehensive List of Dorks

    In keeping with the "list stuff and talk about it" spirit, the community provides me a list of their favorite kilted dorks. For real though, these episodes are massively fun and I love the comment sections of these posts being a hangout of sorts.

Good stuff.

New to the sport really enjoy the technique talk and training talk episodes

You’ll laugh, you may cry, but you’ll be entertained!

I’m brand new to the Highland Games and looking forward to competing soon! This pod has been great to get the pulse of HG culture, what to expect when you’re expecting.. to compete, thoughts on training, and general opinions of the world and what it has come to. Have a listen. Learn something. Get gud!

Not the worst Highland games podcast

He’s not as entertaining or handsome as Hamish MacLeod and he would certainly die in a sword fight against the undisputed Pirate King. But Mike Beech puts out a good show for Highland Games athletes.
