2021 is in the books and Thomas and Gary are using the first episode of 2022 to recap the past 12 months of episodes. The biggest surprises, mistakes, as well as our favorite clips and most memorable moments of 2021, are all featured on episode #81.
The year started out with huge names in Jiu Jitsu. Legends like Robert Drysdale, Dirty Dozen member Chris Haueter, and Olympic Silver Medalist Travis Stevens are just a few of the amazing guests The RŌL Radio had to begin 2021. Then the legends kept coming. High-level competitors, incredible instructors, and people who were there at the beginning of MMA, and what would become the worldwide explosion of Jiu Jitsu were guests as the year went on. Students of the Gracie's who went on to be legends themselves including Henry Akins, Draculino, Murilo Bustamante, and Gracie family members Rolles and Rorion all shared their journeys with our listeners.
The first full year of the RŌL Radio was a huge success. Wonderful and impactful guests, intriguing and inspirational stories, and great moments that truly showed the best of what Jiu Jitsu and its community can be.
Thomas and Gary want to let you know how grateful we are to The RŌL Radio's guests, and sponsors, but more importantly to the listeners. Thank you so much for your contributions and feedback so The RŌL Radio can continue bringing you amazing guests and great conversations about Jiu Jitsu and so much more. It would not be possible without you.
