“A performance enhancer by any other name…” – Eugene S. Robinson 3.12.2023
Welcome to our weekly guest podcast, which fills our Wednesday Bloody Elbow Presents Podcast Network content slot. If you aren’t familiar with the show, it’s probably best described as a compelling MMA video podcast, with a smattering of social commentary & ramblings, as well as some colorful anecdotes from your host’s life… sometimes directly pertaining to combat sports, sometimes barely touching upon it – but always interesting, if you hang in there.
Check it out, you might learn something new, or find something that was said kinda worms its way into your head all week and really makes you think, or not. Shrug. We’re fans and are happy to share it with you.
