Short in length, Deep in knowledge and information
I found my way to Sifu TW Smith's podcast by way of Iain Abernethy. At 24 years of age I've finally had the time, place and finances to practice Martial arts; specifically Wing Chun. I can't get enough of it, it's always on my mind and I try to apply everything I learn in class to my life. I thank Sifu TW Smith for helping sate my never ending quest for all things kung fu. The knowledge and experience of Sifu Smith is clear and with each podcast I feel I become a better martial artist. I like to think that my Wing Chun teacher helps me hone my body and with every podcast Sifu Smith helps me hone my mind. Sorry for the rambling. 5/5!

T.W. Smith brings the goods!
This is probably the most well researched martial arts podcast available. Mr. Smith works with a number of prominent researchers to bring amazing content. Mr. Smith's speaking style and narrative are clear and engaging. He strives to constantly improve and has noticeably done so. KungFu Podcast has my highest recommendation.
