Welcome to the very first episode and show notes of the Saved By The Barbell Podcast hosted by yours truly and my main man, Kevin Warren.

In today’s “pilot” podcast, you’re going to learn how I linked up with a stranger from Houston, TX to create a podcast, why we’re doing this and what you can expect from the show.

I just wanted to give that brief primer, everything else you need to know is in the show! For shortcuts, see the show notes below!
