Kalle Beck & Michael Battaglino

 catch up on the current news in the Strongman world including Strongman Corp nationals, Arnold Classic events, & The Official Strongman games which is THIS weekend. 

 

Nov 28, 2017

This weeks guest is Steve Greenstein producer of the Documentary "They Mighty Atom" 

 

Known as “The Mighty Atom,” Joseph Greenstein was, indeed, the greatest and perhaps the most unlikely strongman who ever lived. He overcame impossible odds to simply survive to adulthood, then learned to harness the powers of the body - and more importantly, the mind - to achieve the impossible. Stopping an airplane from taking off with his hair, bending cold rolled steel with his hands, biting through nails - Greenstein may have been the inspiration for Superman. An amazing tale of human potential,  The Mighty Atom will have audiences cheering.
