“You knew it was coming. Better late than never…” – Eugene S. Robinson 5/3/2023
Welcome to our weekly guest podcast that fills the Bloody Elbow Presents Podcast Network Wednesday content slot. If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s perhaps best described as an exciting MMA video podcast, with a ton of social commentary and ramblings, as well as some colorful anecdotes from your host’s life… sometimes directly related to combat sports, sometimes sometimes you hardly touch it – but always interesting, if you live there.
Take a look, you might learn something new or find something that’s been said that kind of worms its way into your head all week and really makes you think, or not. Shrug. We’re fans and we’re happy to share it with you.
