Load Management

Sports podcasts are everywhere these days. But what’s lacking are the honest and insightful conversations between hosts and athletes who often struggle to relate to each other. All too often athletes are afraid to let their guard down and tell it like it is—whether it’s about their sport or other genres of interest like music, pop culture, sneakers, and style. What’s the solution? Welcome the ‘Load Management’ podcast where athletes are able to speak their minds in an unfiltered setting with Complex Sports authorities Chopz, Adam and Zion. Thriving at the convergence of culture and sports, ‘Load Management’ sifts through the BS to give fans real insights into sports through a unique lens only Complex could present. The ‘Load Management’ podcast brings a realness to an audience that wants to hear the truth and craves forward thinking. Our aim is to elevate the sports conversation through exclusive discussions with the knowledgeable staff at Complex and athletes or other members of the sports media world the audience knows, respects, and can’t wait to hear tell it like it really is.
