Fight Study: Dos Anjos vs. Lee & Wilder v Breazeale

5/19/2019
More
This is fight study, where we use professional fights to study the science and art of fighting. We go layers deep, not just to go inside baseball for the superfans, but also to give rich insight for those who want to improve their own skills. There really is no one else out there who does what we do at the level at which we do it. Meta, meta, meta. In this episode, we use Rafael dos Anjos vs. Kevin Lee to dissect a battle between a southpaw pressure fighter vs. an orthodox pressure fighter,...

Bolelli and Southpaw Explain Everything PLUS American Plains Tribes w/ Daniele Bolelli

5/2/2019
More
We initially met up with historian and philosopher Daniele Bolelli to discuss the Lakota people and other Plains tribes, but naturally our conversation expanded into modern individualism, practical intellect, disdain for variety, narrative thinking & bad mental health, happiness, community, what constitutes a tribe, nationalism, conservative post-modern utopian thinking, morality & religion expressed through politics, lose-lose situations (screwing over the world and still being unhappy),...

More
We brought on writer, podcaster, and pro-wrestling superfan Leslie Lee III to discuss pro-wrestling, indie wrestling, Japanese pro-wrestling, AEW, WWE labor status, and Vince McMahon.

The Jack Allison Experience w/ Jack Allison

4/21/2019
More
Like many of you, we at Southpaw have wondered, how would someone like Jack Allison react to Joe Rogan Experience questions? Joe Rogan is famous for bringing on interesting personalities from Twitter, yet so far—no Jack Allison. So we, as the JRE of the Left, have decided to take matters into our own hands and ask Jack those pressing JRE questions, such as "Have you tried elk meat," " Have you had run-ins with a lone star tick," and "Do you shock your protein while in heat?" Jack Allison...

We sit down with Alex Fernandez to discuss Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier, Kelvin Gastelum vs. Israel Adesanya, and Khalil Rountree Jr. vs. Eryk Anders.

The B-side will be available only on Patreon, where we discuss the economics and limitations of streaming services for sports, the WWE business model, the MMA business model, Wrestlemania, the rise of Becky Lynch,...

4/8/2019
More

Bonus Preview: A People's History of the United States (Pt. 3 of 3)

3/21/2019
More
How would history read if it wasn't from the grand narrative of those in power, but just as it happened? Including all the warts. And since there are so many books that highlight the grand narrative, then we don't need a repeat of what we already know. What we might then need to balance out all that we think we already know is a book that highlights all the warts. And that's exactly what "A People's History of the United States" (https://amzn.to/2RcWRiQ) by Howard Zinn sets out to do. This...

Fight Study: UFC Fight Night 146 – Derrick Lewis vs. Junior dos Santos

3/11/2019

We study Derrick Lewis vs. Junior dos Santos—what went right, what went wrong, and what can we learn about MMA tactics. Then we discuss a fantasy match up between Jon Jones vs. JDS, how Jon Jones would do as a heavyweight, why great fighters cheat, and how being a champion or GOAT in a division says as much about the division as it does about the fighter. This is MMA intellectualism. If you like the stuff we're putting out, support Southpaw on Patreon:...
