A few months ago I had screenwriter, producer, and director Brian Koppelman on the podcast. During our conversation, Brian mentioned that he’s collaborated with his lifelong friend David Levien on many of the screenplays he’s worked on.

For the past year or so, I’ve gotten tweets and emails from AoM readers telling me to check out a book called The Encyclopedia of Underground Strength and Conditioning. I finally got around to it, and after giving it a read, I knew I had to get its author on the podcast.
