LISTEN HERE

The tie that wasn’t a tie! This week’s episode has been commissioned by Club Gym Nerd member RayRay, who requested an episode on “An Abundance of Shushunovas (TM Jessica) – The 1988 battle between Shushunova and Silvas.” Thank you for letting us do this, RayRay! 

Psst: Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the dumpster fire, so just a few words on that before we begin. We’ll get into it in detail next week, but you can read the entire Ropes and Gray report here
