Episode 117: Mat Santos and “Twenty-Twenty”

What a fun conversation with Mat Santos, a lifelong martial artist, devoted family man, and co-author in the Try Not to Die series.

Mat, the owner of Team Santos Fighting Academy, is one of the brightest and funniest black belts I've had the pleasure of hanging out with.

In this episode we discuss:

Connections made through martial arts.

Skill acquisition.

Overcoming obstacles due to the pandemic.

Raising our sons and understanding our fathers.

The importance of participation trophies.

Why I no longer get drunk or high before recording podcasts, and why I'm rethinking that approach.

The highest compliment you can give a Rhode Islander and the quickest way to start a fight with one.

(1:34:50) The short story "Twenty-Twenty" from 25 Perfect Days and narrated by David Thompson.
