The Top Fantasy Football Podcasts
Fantasy Football Goes Mainstream
Football is back and that is a beautiful thing. While my interest in other professional sports has seemed to wane a bit as I have grown older and started a family, my passion for NFL football has increased tenfold and borderlines on an obsession.
There is no doubt that my love for fantasy football has fueled my continued and increasing interest in the NFL. The way that pro football is covered by major sports media these days, highlighting fantasy stats and catering to fantasy players, is a clear indication that I am not alone in this doubling down of interest in the NFL. The explosion of fantasy football and the ascension of the NFL seem to go hand in hand. Read More

Common Sense With Dan Carlin
Common Sense #318 - For Whom the Bell Trolls
I know I am late to the party with a commentary on a political podcast episode that was released a couple of months ago, but every breath that Dan Carlin uttered on his Common Sense podcast Show #318 is still very relevant and will be so the foreseeable future.

The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast
Top Of The Podcast Game
To me, there is no one creating better podcast content than Joe Rogan. He is a prolific producer of shows and the guests and discussions are consistently compelling.
The guests on Joe’s podcast are reflective of his array of interests. The conversations are free to go anywhere, though, regardless of the guest’s connection to Joe or the industry they represent.
The Joe Rogan Experience podcast is built around casual conversations in a long-form format. While Joe is a comedian at heart, it is the recurring themes of deconstructing life that has hooked me in and kept me coming back. Read More
The Joe Rogan Experience With Guest Kyle Kingsbury
I have a limited interest in MMA. I have respect for the fighters and I have certainly been entertained when I have spent any time watching it, but it does not maintain my interest like pro football does, which borderlines on a slight obsession for me.
When I came across Kyle Kingsbury’s first appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast I almost passed over it, based on Kyle being a retired MMA fighter, however, I reminded myself to never judge any Joe Rogan guest by their profession or interest. Joe’s shows are free to flow anywhere and the topics of the conversations are never constrained by the callings of his guests.
This was particularly the case with Kyle Kingsbury’s initial appearance on the show. They covered a variety of topics like dietary strategy, peak performance, and fulfillment in life. I was intrigued the entire time they talked and finished watching the whole episode. Read More

Gary is a showman without a doubt, but he became one of the most iconic online personas today by consistently providing value with his content and making integrity the linchpin with which he has built his brand.
Gary seems heartfelt in wanting every single person he touches to break free from the soul-sucking trap of the rat race. He implores people to take definitive and immediate action in pursuit of their own entrepreneurial dreams. Read More
