Thursday May 14th, 2015– Austin TX, is the home for one more thing besides Longhorns and Great BBQ, it is now home to the most hilarious and controversial new MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) comedy podcasts in the south. The Joes dub themselves as “the bad boys of the MMA comedy podcast world”. Oh and they are back again for episode 9.
The host of the show is 26-year-old lifelong Austinite Blake “MoneyBlakeWeather” Stephenson, a practitioner of MMA and boxing for 6 years and a true “student of the game” spends most of his free time drinking beers till he thinks of funny ideas for the show, and watching/ studying boxing & MMA fights alike. Cohosts, John Miller and JV are a great addition to the team each with their own unique couch warrior perspective.
“The podcast started out of necessity” says Blake, “I listen to a lot of great podcasts but most of them are not edgy, they are too politically correct, and a lot of it all sounds the same or it’s all a similar format.”
“They are the CNN of MMA podcasts and we are the Daily Show of the MMA podcast world. I’m not concerned with breaking the latest news; I’m concerned with breaking the honesty barrier and keeping everything we do as raw as possible. If controversy comes from it so be it, but you won’t hear the same cookie cutter answers or questions from us. This is a show designed to make you feel like you are hanging at your buddy’s house, with your friends, talking some MMA shit, and having a few adult beverages.”
The SNL like skit before every show, and the RAQ (Random ASS Questions) and “bye felicia” segments help differentiate this MMA podcast from all others.
“I just want people to share my love of MMA and laugh, and I do my best to make that happen on every episode” says Blake.
Episode 9 features Austin Kickboxing Academy’s head coach Randy Vera we find out how he got involved with MMA, what its like to be a coach, and break down some upcoming fights.
