Episode 30: Babs

It’s week two of CHIKARA month at Have A Nice Day, and this week I’m joined by Babs of the CHIKARA in 15 Minutes or Less podcast.

We get into the pitfalls of being a female wrestling fan in the early nineties, and bond over a mutual love of John Morrison. It’s mostly CHIKARA though, as we go over Babs’ history with the company, the inspiration for her podcast, and look forward to You Only Live Twice and beyond.

Episode 29: CHIKARAPALOOZA

We’re breaking from format somewhat this week, and myself, Heinekenrana and Danielle Matheson sit down to talk about all things CHIKARA. We got a good bunch of listener questions, and while we don’t cover everything, there’s a lot here to get you ready for May 25th.

One word of warning, well two, this episode isn’t exactly as family friendly as CHIKARA is, so please be aware of that. Also, it gets kinda heavy when we start talking about the tragic loss of Larry Sweeney.

Episode 28: Eamon Paton

After last week’s surprisingly controversial episode, things have settled down a bit, but it doesn’t mean this week’s episode isn’t super exciting.

I chatted to Inspire Pro’s play-by-play man, Eamon Paton about the crossover from fan to professional, missing out on the “boom period” of wrestling by a few years, and of course, Inspire’s upcoming show, No Room To Die!

Episode 27: Steinercast

Over the past month, myself and comics artist extraordinaire Kyle Starks have dedicated ourselves to one goal: Discovering how Scott Steiner went from Michigan born good ol’ boy to The Big Bad Booty Daddy.

Today, we recorded an hour and half long, special edition of Have A Nice Day and now you can all bear witness to our findings.

Come with us, down the Steinerhole…

Episode 26: Taylor Meyers

Man, what a week it’s been in wrestling, eh?! After everything that’s gone down, I needed someone who thinks about wrestling more intelligently than I do to bounce off of, so it was a delight to be joined by my friend, Taylor Meyers, who was in New Orleans this weekend, to help me through this strange week.

(Quick note: This episode was recorded before The Ultimate Warrior’s passing, so don’t expect it to come up, sorry.)

Episode 25: Box Brown

It’s the last episode before “The Grandaddy of Them All” WrestleMania, and what better time than now to talk to the creator of Andre The Giant: Life and Legend, Box Brown?

In this week’s show we dig into Andre’s legacy, the level of research that’s necessary for good biography, and of course the upcoming Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale (as well as our picks for all of the WrestleMania matches)

Episode 24: Brandon Stroud

I’m over the moon to be joined this week by Brandon Stroud, of Best and Worst fame, who despite a crippling respiratory infection toughed it out to record two hours of quality wrestling chat.

This episode covers everything from using wrestling to cope with depression, to how growing up a wrestling fan was an asset during high school (eventually), to Inspire Pro Wrestling, and Brandon’s film Meet Me There starring the one and only Goldust!
