Bumbeen ,

Rip’s Shatner-style rambling makes this a perfect bedtime podcast

My favorite night time podcast. Mr. Rippetoe’s deep voice and methodical speaking pace make this an extremely relaxing podcast and puts me straight to sleep. Sometimes I’m even able to stay awake long enough to learn something! It’s astounding to me that Rip’s books have taught me how to utilize the gym and his podcast helps me recover from utilizing the gym. You’re doing a lot of good for this internet stranger, thanks so much.
