great podcast, I'm currently doing body builder type training and loving the results I'm seeing. although, I play lots of basketball and understand that body building doesn't have a huge carry over as for as explosiveness goes. Is there any capacity where body building can be beneficial for athletes??

NNN (November) originally started as a way to bring out testicular cancer awareness although it's a meme now. And you guys were right...starve then binge- NNN is followed by DDD (Destroy D December). Also, your Pornhub comment was funny because they tweet all about it and call out people for "failing" by logging in during November. It's basically the Movember for Millenials.

Food for thought regarding the company that was giving away shoes for every shoe you buy. The local businesses hate it because it's taken customers away. So local cobbler's get out out of business. Crazy how we do good and sometimes the effect is not exactly what we were thinking.

I wish you would talk normally about the vegan diet like you do carnivorous, keto, omnivore, etc. Ben talks neutral to all diets while this podcast is very anti-vegan, which I understand, but neutrality has value in a fitness podcast.

we will always need technicians, food service,and medical personnel. it doesn't matter how many engineers, and inventors you have somebody will need to maintain and fix it. people are always hurt or sick. people cant or dont always want to cook their own food.
