Scribbled Shownotes

  • I’m watching Betting on Zero so I had to tear myself away from that to do this podcast
  • Also, I watched an ace YouTube video yesterday Irving Youngers 10 commandments of cross examination that’s inspired a future podcast for me

  • Lifting weights is all about persistence
  • And it’s about persisting past what everybody else is willing to persist past

  • And by persisting longer than anybody else
