Episode 8: Twigg

Twigg…And now for something completely different. This past weekend I attended ThoughtBubble comics convention in Leeds, and on the drive back to Manchester, I recorded a chat with my good friend Twigg about his unique views on our beloved sport.

Listen to this week’s episode to hear why The Worm is the greatest move ever, our differing opinions on PG wrestling, and Twigg’s ultimate formula for the perfect wrestling match.

Episode 7: Chris Sims

Chris-SimsThis week, I’m joined by a very special guest! One of my favourite people on the internet, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims joins me for an extra-special, ninety minute(!) edition of the podcast, and we go all over the place, talking about Sting, Daniel Bryan, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, Bo Dallas, the difference between the Stunner and the Diamond Cutter, Goldust, and the book where Torrie Wilson and Batista are wrestlers by night, international spies by later that night.

Episode 4: Sam Riley

Sam-RileyFriday means it’s time for a new episode of Have A Nice Day, and today I’m joined by man of many talents, Sam Riley to chat about his personal history with wrestling.

It’s a great episode, and Sam’s a super fun guy to chat to. He’s also very opinionated, so have a listen to this week’s episode to hear his controversial thoughts on all sorts, including which era-Undertaker is the only one he likes.

Niam-SuggittWelcome back to Have A Nice Day, or if this is your first episode, welcome to the show!

This week I’m chatting to The Outhouse’s Niam Suggitt as someone who was never really that into wrestling as a child, and we’ll talk about what it means to come to wrestling as an adult, as well as the connection between the world of comic books and of professional wrestling (and other stuff, obviously)
