Ep #2: Cheating in Sports vs. Dodgeball Show Notes

Welcome back to Wanna Match Podcast! It’s a podcast where two best friends get together, match, and then try to understand an obscure topic that we recently researched. In this episode, we chat about a chopstick in a plant, what “the tornado” is, and give you a little singing action! That’s before we even get into our topics of Cheating in Sports and Dodgeball!

Cheating in Sports

Sydney kicks off the episode with a deep dive into “Cheating in Sports”. You know what they say, “Cheaters never winner.”
