Show: Steve Austin Show
Episode: 297 (Feb. 9, 2016)
Run Time: 1:23:06
Guest: Todd Carroll (14:15)
Summary: Austin recorded the pre-and post spots Sunday morning, so he includes a Super Bowl preview. The meat of the show is a phone interview with a recent Broken Skull Challenge finalist, Todd Carroll, of Wheaton, IL. They discuss how he came to be a contestant and his workout approach, then go through Carroll’s episode by each obstacle and spending most of the time on the Skullbuster finale itself.
Quote of the week: “I kinda wear my emotions on my sleeve, where I’m upset so I’m not gonna say too much, it was just eating me up inside where I was that close and I couldn’t make it happen at all. And it’s kind of a long day, too, because you get done, you gotta go to the airport, get, like, a red-eye flight, so I’m like, ‘I just want to go lay down and go to sleep and forget about all this,’ but it was just a long day afterwards where I had to sit and contemplate and torture myself about how I did.”
Why you should listen: You love Broken Skull Challenge.
Why you should skip it: You don’t watch Broken Skull Challenge.
Final thoughts: Glad it’s a real guest, bummed it’s another BSC contestant. Not a ton else to say here — if you don’t watch the show, I can’t conceive of any way in which this episode would be remotely interesting. If you do watch the show, you’re obviously a devoted fan and will absolutely love this inside look.
