Mighty Cast 33: Bigger, Stronger, Faster

Episode 33

Bigger, Stronger, Faster

This week we look at our favorite documentary – Bigger, Stronger, Faster!

In elite sport, like politics, just about everyone bends the rules. The ones who get caught are villainized and the ones that don’t become legends.

In this episode, we discuss the many themes that come-up including:

  • The side effects of being American
  • Using steroids & playing by unwritten rules
  • How Louie Simmons of Westside continues rocking his authentic self
  • What constitutes cheating
    • Tiger Woods Eye Surgery
    • Roughing up a baseball
    • Armed Forces use of speed & steroids
    • Musicians & Beta Blockers
  • Why the bereaved should not lead the political agenda
  • Congressman Henry Waxman’s interview
  • The family scene where Chris Bell comes out about his steroid use
  • Problems with supplements
  • The legal use of steroids

And finally, a bit of debate between Chris & Nicks’ views on regulation & what role politics should play.
