We’re introducing a new “show within the show” concept that you’ll see pop-up in the BTK feed every week, Quick & Dirty with Wardo. These episodes will be short form podcasts in addition to our regular interviews, focused on one or two topics at a time and covering tips, tricks and advice on injury and pain management, fitness, nutrition, gear and whatever else strikes our fancy.
