A very tall man. ,

Fantasy work

Entertaining and educational

Don’t listen to the upset chodes

This is a great podcast covering a wide berth of topics, top tier, and somehow manages to be professional and casual. Sam and Paul both manage to talk about combat sports, techniques, pop culture and make me feel like I’m just hanging out. They make important topics understandable and accessible.

A very worthwhile listen

Southpaw does a great job of taking on timely social and political commentary with thoughtful and knowledgeable guests. It's engaging, interesting, accessible, and fun--especially when dealing with the intersections of politics, combat sports, and culture.
