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: Noxious nominees and Buzzfeed misdeeds. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Now let’s get to stepping!

Step into the shoes of a presidential wannabe. How do you prevent your ego from reproducing the malodorous whiffs of doom emanating from the Kamala Harris and Howard Schultz campaigns, live and in public, if you will. - 1:16 video, 34:12 audio

Step into the shoes of Buzzfeed. Does your brand require making amends to your best financially struggling, unpaid, teenage quizmaker? - 10:29 video, 43:24 audio

Step into the shoes of former Mayor Willie Brown. What kind of PR effect did you expect by writing about your extra marital affair with Kamala Harris and her potential abuse of power years later by threatening you when she was Attorney General? - 17:53 video, 50:34 audio

REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 20:35 video, 53:30 audio
REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 26:29 video, 59:25 audio

“Until next week, no matter how tight, loose, or uncomfortable, remember these words: on this show, the shoes always fit, so we can never acquit.”
