Good podcast

Updating my previous review as it wasn’t fair to the host.

This podcast contains top notch fight analysis and cultural commentary that can be extremely insightful at times and extremely frustrating and disappointing at times. For example, His insight on the Rose ‘better dead than red’ comments was very helpful. His attributing racism to large swaths of American fans cheering for rose over zhang was not.

If your goal is to hear fight analysis and want to skip the cultural commentary he does include time stamps in the show notes. He’s pretty good at segregating his fight analysis from his cultural commentary.
