If you’ve been listening on SoundCloud, YouTube, Facebook, Apple, Spotify, Amazon Music, audible, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Pandora, DownCast, PodCruncher, or other popular podcasting platforms and apps, the RSS feeds carrying all of our shows both together and individually will still get our shows to you via your existing platforms, BUT you’ll still want to subscribe here so you’ll have access to the BONUS CONTENT & EXCLUSIVE SUBSCRIBER ONLY SHOWS, additionally receiving email announcements of every new episode, which you can opt in or out of. Choose to follow every show, or just the shows or hosts you love the most.
We have added on SPECIAL BONUS CONTENT to our regular shows FOR PAID SUBSCRIBERS ONLY — plus, “Kid Nate” Wilcox, our fearless leader, has returned to the Bloody Elbow Podcast Network with his ‘MMA BUNKER’ & ‘MMA Tête-À-Tête’ shows.
‘The MMA Bunker’ was closed at the request of SB Nation management when Nate’s commentary made things too hot for a certain access journalist. That’s no longer our problem and Nate’s MMA commentary is back with a vengeance. Bloody Elbow Podcasts depend on listener support and only paying subscribers get the bonus content and allowed inside Kid Nate’s MMA Bunker.
In addition to 'The MMA Bunker'... the wildly popular, ‘MMA Depressed-us’ show has been brought over to our Substack from Patreon as special Bonus Content for paid subscribers! Be sure to pledge your support with a paid subscription so you can follow along with Zane Simon, Connor Ruebusch & Phil Mackenzie while they watch torturous MMA together online with you. We are aiming for one episode a month, in the future!

We know you only want to get emails for the shows you care about so our Bloody Elbow Podcasts Substack page now has “Podcast Sections” which you can subscribe to independently, in the form of tabs you can scroll sideways for at the top of our homepage.
These are basically Substack’s version of Playlists. If you only want to follow or receive notifications on a specific show, you can do that now. More details on how to subscribe/unsubscribe to sections here.
We’ve been working hard to tweak our schedule to give you the shows you want most. Our new production schedule is listed below….
