This week The Puncholes feature...
You’re the UFC. Walk us through your PR considerations for trading Demetrious Johnson for Funky Ben Askren, live and in public, if you will. - audio, 0:33 video
You’re American Top Team. Do you need to make any PR moves after your logo was on the MAGABomber’s van? - audio, 6:19 video
You’re Project Spearhead. Without any vocal members signed to the UFC and Kajan Johnson’s admission of fear and disinterest, is it time to stick a fork in your project or change the menu? - audio, 13:21 video

“We’ll be back next week with another installment of If I Did It; and we don’t know what we’ll be talking about yet because the PR mistakes have yet to be made.”
Sit back and relax and in just a moment we welcome you to another episode of If The Shoes Fit; a show where we solve salacious situations by stepping into the shoes of the shaken...the chagrined...the kerfuffed! This week: Bolsonaro Blues and Megyn Kelly Capers. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!
Now let’s get to stepping!
Step into the shoes of Megyn Kelly. Given your inability to produce results outside of a right-wing media environment, live and in public, if you will, what PR steps should you take to preserve whatever remains from your fifteen minutes of fame? - audio, 0:37 video
Step into the shoes of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Instead of focusing on fascist fears of Brazilian President Bolsonaro’s regime, you offered an investment guide for future financial schemes. Address the sneering….against your profiteering. - audio, 9:57 video
Step into the shoes of Hazelton Penitentiary. James “Whitey” Bulger was found dead from unknown causes in your facility just one day after his arrival. Until the investigation is complete, do you have any comment? - audio, 17:39 video
REGULAR FEATURE: LEGION OF DOOM - audio, 22:54 video
REGULAR FEATURE: #MISTYAF - audio, 25:15 video
