You make some good points. I can certainly say that in some circles in my life, I may be seen as the go-to guy while in others im just one of the pack. In either situation though, I don’t need to know what my role is, nor do I care enough to try and convince others of my higher status. All that does, IMO, is betray some type of inferiority its complex or just self doubt (loathing?)
In the fitness realm, and I refer to the nonsense world of social media, you don’t have to go very far to seen daily selfies by grown me and the constant need to humble-brag or even convince oneself of being worthwhile and someone who should be looked up to or seen as an authority or expert on some manner.
Brad, Arash and I have had many conversations where we talk about doing our best to discuss what we see going on, but also to try hard not to devolve into just calling people out or making fun of their actions. Hopefully we don’t fall into that hole very often. Admittedly we’re just human and we do plenty of laughing and howling just between ourselves. It’s just to easy with some of these “fitness celeries.” Glad you guys are still listening along.
As to the iTunes and downloadable audio versions, we’re working on that (along with a few other things) at the moment. It’s been a very hectic year for all three of us, and the fact that we’ve managed by 11 episodes in the last year (our first ever attempt at this) isn’t too shabby. We could be churning out daily, if not multiple daily rants that are essentially worthless like so many other folks, but so far we’ve felt very good about each topic we’ve addressed. Hopefully the audience feels likewise.
We’ll actually also be setting up an avenue to submit questions to be addressed in future Q&A themed episodes. The highlight of this little bit of audience participation you ask? If we use your question you’ll receive an official, never offered before, collectors item Mas Macros t-shirt!
Thanks for hanging in there with us guys. We really do have a blast doing this (plenty of nights went by where we forget to record anything, and just grabned burgers n beers while discussing bodybuilding anyway -lol)
