Now that I've upgraded my setup, I've really wanted to take the podcast on the road for some in-person interviews. Well this week's show was the first crack at it.

Matt Bessette and Jeff Haddad are two of my best friends in this industry. Staples of the Connecticut MMA scene, they opened up their own gym, called "Ascension Athletics," and have been steadily building up their clientele and reputation ever since. On January 1st, they moved to a brand new location and it was here that we recorded the podcast you're about to listen to.

This was an extremely eclectic conversation ranging from lack of women in the STEM fields to the viewing of horrific videos and what they can teach us about humanity and life. Of course, there was some MMA talk as well, but this one felt a lot more like a Rogan podcast and I couldn't be happier about that.

*Note: Matt's original opponent for CES 44 (Jeremy Spoon) pulled out of the fight just hours before we recorded this podcast. As a result, I avoided the topic of CES 44 all together. He has now found a replacement opponent in Rey Trujillo, so all is well. But in case you were wondering, that's why we didn't talk about his fight.

Enjoy!!
