After a little bit of a hiatus, the Iron Cast is back. We've got some new familiar faces who will become regulars! Keaton, Krissy's dog, ate Ryan's microphone cord (delicioussss) so he sat back and directed while the girls answered questions about diet.

Q, aka Chuckie Welsh, aka Quiana and the girls and Ryface get rowdy and tell sex stories. This is highly inappropriate and Not Safe For Work at all. So. Listen at your own risk!

Krissy tells her story. 

May 18, 2016

It's Q! Our favorite girl from NYC came to visit us and we are all so happy about it. She is the sassiest and the besttttt!

In this first part of yet another two part podcast, we talk Tinder, how to not be a psycho about your diet, PEDs, what empowers them as women, sending and receiving nudes, and sex talk. It gets a lot more rowdy in round two also.

We couldn't have HVIII's own Matt Vincent just do a single episode when he came to town. This time we tackle the world of Social Media and it gets controversial, of course. 

Matt is always funny, articulate, and outspoken so it's a pleasure to be able to present another episode with him. ENJOY.

May 13, 2016

THE Matt Vincent came to town during our first anniversary party to surprise us. For those who might not know, Matt Vincent is a two-time Highland Games world champion and the founder of HVIII Brand Goods. We talk about what it takes to be your own person, starting and running a business, and he demonstrates why we think he's one of the funniest people on the planet. SPREAD HVIII ALWAYS PARTY

The Black Iron coaching staff take over while Krissy is out of town for the Doughnuts and Deadlifts SoCal tour.

We talk about the virtues and real life abilities of Keanu Reeves and discuss Crossfit, bodybuilding, and training in the age of social media. Plus we also discuss what is worth sacrificing in the pursuit of achieving your fitness goals.

Mar 29, 2016

We continue with KC aka That 1 Leg Monster. We talk veteran suicide, hard work, overcoming obstacles, deadlifting, and finally get around to goofing off. / / We talk about stability in the deadlift (and how he can deadlift almost 600 with one leg)

Mar 28, 2016

KC Mitchell aka That 1 Leg Monster is a US Army Airborne Infantry vet who was wounded in combat overseas. The IED blast left made him lose his leg.

In this very special episode, we sat down with KC and he shared his journey after the blast through recovery and to his introduction into fitness. He shares his fitness journey, his how and why for training, and his goals.

KC is outspoken about a lot of things and speaks very bluntly about them. In Part 1, he calls out a lot of people in the fitness and supplement industry by name and doesn't hold back when he shares his opinions of them.

By far our most controversial and engaging episode to date. KC is understandably an inspiration to many people and we hope that his story can inspire you and get you to think.

Ryface takes the helm in this funny and controversial interview with Emily Duncan (THE @Em_Dunc) and Matt Vincent (@ihviiimattvincent) while the Doughnuts and Deadlifts crew was at the Arnold in Columbus.

We are all a little tired and out of it while we discuss the different fitness cultures seen at Ze Arnold, their validity, FLAT EARTH!, and other things.

The question of the hour was clearly: What's the deal with bodybuilding? Can it really be considered a sport? Em Dunc handles these questions while Matt offers his perspective on things.

Mar 18, 2016

Sarah, who created and runs the Primal Bites blog ( stops in to talk about the many forms of sustainability and sustainable eating. We talk the politics and ethics of food and eating and the best approaches to optimal nutrition. We also talk about Sarah's fitness journey as she ventures into strongman and powerlifting from CrossFit.

We play probably our best round of Two Truths and A Lie to date, and have an insane round of Would You Rather?

Brandon Collins, longtime friend of the Black Iron crew, and the one who has done much of the tattoo work on Krissy's body stops by before leaving the country on an open ended journey around the globe. 

Brandon talks what it takes to give up everything to pursue a passion and a dream, the weirdest foods he's ever eaten, fetishes, and plays a game of "Would You Rather" with us. 

As always we are funny and controversial and we hope you enjoy! 

Feb 12, 2016

The boys of Black Iron took over the podcast studio to sit down and talk some nonsense and be funny. We delve into "What's the worst workout you've ever seen?" among other things. This is what we have to (get to) put up with on a daily basis. Good times! 

Feb 10, 2016

Katie and Rori are two very strong women making waves in the USAPL. They stopped by Black Iron to host a powerlifting seminar and graciously took the time to podcast with us.

We take questions from Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter about training, recovery, maintenance, overcoming obstacles, getting drug tested, body image, and jumping into lake for Logan (see our other video for that!)

And of course we got a few "Would You Rather" questions because that's how we roll.

Desiree Morgan and Tony Montgomery Jr. from Team Doughnuts and Deadlifts stopped by during the American Open in Reno, NV (how convenient for us!) at the beginning of January.

Welcome to the Black Iron Iron Cast Podcast! In our first episode, we sit down with (some of) the coaching staff at Black Iron to talk about life at BIG, rap in NPR voices, the Black Iron Black Book of Training (which can be found at our Gumroad) and play a round of "Would You Rather".

Video versions of our podcasts will be available on our YouTube page: 

We open with our technical difficulties while Ryan tries to get our equipment to work, all while the camera was rolling. Then we discuss not having intro music (we really need to fix that!) and then we get rolling. Welcome to our world, world!
