Hello there,

I'm Jack Slack, a writer for Vice's Fightland and the host of the Fights Gone By podcast wherein we discuss the technical ins and outs of the beautiful business of fighting. Having written about professional MMA, boxing and kickboxing fights as well as martial arts history and terrible eighties action movies for the best part of five years, I decided to make the jump into podcasting.

On the Fights Gone By podcast we discuss the technical and strategic points of fighting and how the habits of two men can impact the outcome of a fight We examine topics such as the role of reach, the taking of dominant angles, the importance of timing and feinting, and everything else which plays a role in how the fights actually go. We also talk about all of the silly bollocks that goes on in this circus of a sport behind the scenes and between the fights.

I've spent most of my writing career working for big companies but I would like to keep my podcast independent. I can only do that, however, through the help of my readers and listeners! It is my desire to keep the Fights Gone By podcast open to everyone but Patreon bois will get extra content - extra articles, episodes, history lectures.
