It’s time for another of our infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Podcasts, with your talent: the astounding Eugene S. Robinson of ozy.com and author of “Fight: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking” and host of the ‘Ozy Confidential Podcast’, the indubitable John S. Nash, our chief financials columnist and co-host of our ‘Show Money Podcast’, along with our lovely co-host, Stephie Haynes, of Bloody Elbow’s ‘The Level Change Podcast’ and ‘The Mookie & Crookie Show’.
The format of the show is to review the prior weeks picks & then to announce each fight on the upcoming card, commenting on which fights are hot, and which fights are not.
