In 2018, RUDIS branched into unchartered territory to serve the sport of wrestling through media with the launch of its podcast programs. RUDIS continues with its mission to continually project the message that wrestling is more than just a sport, but also A WAY OF LIFE. There's no greater way to do so than by representing the merits of the sport, highlighting and outfitting those who help write its story in the most authentic way. Today, RUDIS provides four free podcasts to wrestling fans and beyond, joined by some of the greatest minds in the sport.
The RUDIS Wrestling Podcast is a free audio and video podcast hosted by Division I National Championship-winning Coach Matt Dernlan and Hall of Fame Journalist and Announcer Jason Bryant. This bi-weekly podcast delivers cutting edge insights and topical discussions about the world of amateur wrestling.
The Way is a free weekly podcast co-hosted by wrestling legend and Head Coach of the United States Naval Academy Cary Kolat and Division I National Championship-winning Coach Matt Dernlan. The Way provides in-depth, high-level discussions about the sport of wrestling through the shared lens of Cary and Matt’s shared experiences as athletes and coaches.
