Starrcade 1985: The Gathering

In the first full length bonus episode requested in our King of Trios fundraiser, we discuss the show that followed the promo that gave our podcast its title. Dusty Rhodes shows Ric Flair what hard times really are, Magnum T.A. and Tully Blanchard are hardcore as hell, and the Atlanta Street Fight is bananas. 

CONTENT WARNING: Wrestling was an even nastier business in 1985 than it is today. Consequently this podcast contains (mostly brief) discussions of bloody violence, racism, domestic abuse, possible sex abuse, and probably other terrible things I'm forgetting to name.

Takeover Toronto and Survivor Series with Steve Orlando

It took us a while to get an episode together about the Thanksgiving week shows, but we've made up for it with a double-length episode featuring special guest Steve Orlando. Over the course of just over three hours, we talk about NXT Takeover Toronto, Survivor Series, and a million other things, most of which are wrestling-related.

Follow Steve Orlando on Twitter, and check out Midnighter and Apollo, Supergirl, and the upcoming Justice League of America on Comixology or anywhere else you buy comics.

Live from King of Trios 2016!

Live to tape from a hotel room in Bethlehem PA! It's our King of Trios special! Featuring guests Kieran Shiach, Helena Hart, Aidan Sullivan, and Chris Sims. We recorded on night two, so that's as far as our spoilers go. But we have a lot of feelings about Sendai Girls, Team Original Divas Revolution, Mustache Mountain, Missile Assault Man, Vlad Radinov, Jigsaw, and lots more. Thoughts on our favorite matches and at least one that didn't work for us.

Listen to our guests' many podcasts: Journey into Misery, Animal Crackers, Zero Hour, War Rocket Ajax, Movie Fighters, and Sailor Business.

Summerslam 2016 and NXT Takeover Brooklyn with Ashly (aka NewAgeAmazon)

Ashly (you may know her better as @NewAgeAmazon) is our special guest as we discuss Summerslam, Takeover Brooklyn II, Talking Smack, Holy Foley, Ashly's extremely brief in-ring career, and a bunch of other stuff. And then at the very end we discover how impossible it is to remember the name "Backlash."

Follow Ashly on Twitter, and check out her short fiction collection.
