My New Favorite Podcast
I just listened to an episode of Truth Not Trends and I’m hooked. I listened to the episode on Steve McKinney and he had lots of insight on different workouts. It was super informative and I can’t wait for more episodes like his. Jesse and Liam do a great job keeping the flow of the interview going and ask very insightful questions.
Keep up the great work, Schmock!
Love the podcast. Not for the people chasing whatever is the next silly fad diet, or fitness class.
