I love this podcast!

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Derrick interview his “special guests.” It is clear to me that Derrick has a talent for interviewing and I appreciate the often remarkable stories he extracts from seemingly normal people. It is a good reminder of our shared humanity. If you like the idea of listening in on what feels like a casual conversation that will move you and make you giggle, I highly recommend!

Quality production. Quality content. Quality people.

Bjj and life banter

On a long drive I look forward to hearing Derrick's insights on jiujitsu, comedy and life. I highly recommend this podcast!
