Put Perkovic on the podcast
This is my favorite podcast
I am not lacrosse junkie however, Rabil’s drive to make the PLL a major sports league is engrossing. These stories of pros who started playing professionally with 6k salaries will have you shocked. The league also embraces big personalities which is evident in this podcast. If you enjoy hearing people’s personal stories (check out the Joe Walters episode), entrepreneurship (season 2 episode 1), or a funny guy with the drive to be the best( Matt Rambo) then give this podcast a try.
