#158 - Back to Abnormal

Chris takes the co-host seat back and immediately dives into how not to talk to people in public. In fact, he also gets into subjects that make me question if we are supposed to be talking in private.

#157 - Jeremy Clark Returns

The sit-down almost four years in the making. Jeremy Clark (head Player Development Coach for the LA Kings and the co-owner of Minnesota Top Team in Eagan) sits down with Jon to talk about life around BJJ, particularly the rarely spoken about phenomenon known as the "brown belt blues".

Hint: it has to do with everything else in life that isn't BJJ.

Why did you start rolling? Why do you still roll?

#156 - Retaliated

Chris and Jon get back to what you all are here for: Jon complaining about the Kickboxer franchise. They also talk some BJJ. (recorded 5/1 at Grumpy's in Minneapolis)

#155 - Don't Eat Yellow Snow

Chris and Jon dig themselves out of a snow drift just long enough for Jon to talk about doing nothing, Chris to ask from MMA questions, then push the bounds of Jon's strike zone. (recorded at Grumpy's 4/17/18)

#153 - Always Hold Hands

Thought I was going to let the naming scheme go so quickly? Pssh. This is all I got. 
Chris and Jon discuss the roots of their burgeoning romance and Jon takes no less than five different subject changes to talk about the basis for BJJ feuds. (recorded 4/4/18 at Grumpy's)

#152 - Don't Do Meth

Chris and Jon talk "Notorious", a local fighter getting his UFC debut, how Jon reacts to a bar fight, and Chris opens up about his motivations in life. No, seriously, it gets deep...don't you dare say it...

#151 - Staying On Topic?

Wait...wait...you mean to tell me that for an entire episode Chris and Jon actually talked about MMA and BJJ? Not movies or porn or food? I don't...I don't even know...what's the point...

With added thanks to listener Nick Palmer for helping the conversation.

#150 - IBJJF-Off

Chris and Jon eventually get around to talking about BJJ and it quickly devolves into their dislike of the IBJJF and everything they stand for...or don't stand for. Hint: they stand for money, they don't stand for anything else.

#149 - Friendship?

Chris and Jon discuss how bad Jon is at managing his time off, take sides on Nate Diaz, remember the Juliette Lewis Effect, and finally take time to mourn the loss of Spike TV.

#147 - What's Wrong With My D***?

Chris and Jon ask themselves an age-old question before delving into training mentality, and a little bit about the important stuff they are always supposed to talk about. And I don't think they mentioned movies once! (recorded 1/25/18 at Grumpy's)

#146 - Losing It

Chris and Jon talk about movies (again), before delving into competition training and exactly how much weight Jon gains when he gets lazier than usual. (recorded 1/11/18 at the Academy in Eden Prairie, MN)
