This week The Puncholes feature...

You’re Bloody Elbow. Your PED expert reporter was exposed as a convicted pedophile, live and in public, if you will. What took you so long to find out and act on the news? And what PR Steps do you need to make to save the veracity of your social justice warrior brand? - 0:48 video, 1:20 - audio

You’re the MMAJA. What is your best PR move for the UFC showing you who is the Bull of the Woods…by punking your members at the UFC 231 press conference last week? - 16:24 video, 16:56 - audio

REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 26:26 video, 26:58 - audio

“We’ll be back next week with another installment of If I Did It; and we don’t know what we’ll be talking about yet because the PR mistakes have yet to be made.”


Welcome to another episode of IF THE SHOES FIT; a show where we solve salacious situations by stepping into the shoes of the shaken...the chagrined...the kerfuffed! This week: Defy, delay, downplay! Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate to discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Now let’s get to stepping!

Step into the shoes of Kevin Hart. When your posts homophobic tweets went viral, all you had to do was apologize to keep your Oscars hosting gig, live and in public, if you will. Your reply? “I chose to pass, I passed on the apology. The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up, I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it.” What kind of PR strategy is that? - 1:04 video, 38:42 - audio

Step into the shoes of Theresa May. Your inability to exit a car and leaving German Chancellor Angela Merkel waiting embarrassed England. Is this a Brexit metaphor as suggested by the Washington Post? And if not, should it be? - 10:18 video, 48:01 - audio

Step into the shoes of Emmanuel Macron. Forget about Russian influence, explain the PR message you are sending to the Yellow Vest rioters, by addressing their concerns from the opulent, all gold EVERYTHING room, in the Elysee Palace. - 17:16 video, 55:00 - audio

REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 21:03 video, 58:46 - audio
REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 24:35 video, 1:02:16 - audio
