Amazing Podcast

I was drawn in by conversations with world class grappling coaches, but across the board these are great conversations. Not many interviewers come so prepared, ask such great questions, and also just let the guests speak. Highly recommended.

Chicago fans adore Lex

I seek out all my world news from Lex, the self described fat frog sitting on a leaf in a dirty muddy lake. Love this podcast!

Great podcast; bad guest Ben Askren

I love this podcast and I’ve listen to almost every episode. I think Lex is one of the best interviewers and conversationalists that I’ve ever heard. His English is surprisingly good for it being his second language. I never have any issues understanding Lex or anyone else really that he has had on. I know that sometimes when you start listening to someone you’ve never heard before you have to learn their cadence and the way they say things and then you begin to understand them. Good example of this is Danieli Bolelli. First time I heard him it was very hard to understand but you listen for about 10 minutes and you can get it. This is no slant towards Lex or his podcast this is all about Ben Askren, he is just very hard to understand either sounds like he’s drunk or maybe been hit too much I’m not sure but I literally cannot understand him and that makes for a frustrating podcast experience I just don’t think Ben is suited for this media. I listened for about 30 minutes and I still couldn’t understand his mumbling‘s. Keep up the good work just wanted to voice my opinion about Ben, sorry Ben.
