    I thought this was a really interesting episode. Yeah Mrs. Freeman is a bit of a yapper, but you can tell it’s only because she’s so passionate about BJJ and has probably been dying to get on the podcast. I can almost hear her now “what’s the big deal?? What do you guys do in there that’s so special that i can’t join??” Well done Mr. Freeman, you made the misses happy and informed us about women in BJJ Norcal style..

    Wives gotta horn in and ruin everything.
    Inside BJJ just jumped the shark via Yoko Ono.

    A bit lame of the male presenter to talk about his female co host being beautiful and his absent male presenters eating faecal matter. especially when the episode was a focus on female BJJ.

    • Tim says:

      Haha…the female co-host is my wife so I think it’s ok. You probably don’t listen to the show on a regular basis to understand the back and forth between the host and the regular male co-hosts. Thanks for listening though.
