In perhaps the most informal and loose Have A Nice Day yet, I’m joined by one-half of Drop Toehold, and good friend, Heinekenrana who stops by for a chat that goes from the importance of wrestling that you can show to your children, to the darker side of wrestling fandom (AKA “The Shield” tag on Tumblr).
Listen in just to hear me get about as excitable as I ever get when we start to talk about the imminent debut of TNA’s Willow.

In a blatant effort to draw in new listeners, I’ve uploaded the opening three minute from this week’s episode, which is Chris Sims’ full heel promo on myself, Meg Lovell, and a bunch of other previous guests. It’s a lot of fun, and possibly my favourite thing to come out of doing the show.
If you enjoyed that, you can listen to the full episode, and if you can find old episodes on this very website. Alternatively, you can subscribe on iTunes, and if you like what I’ve got going here, ratings and reviews are always appreciated.
Chris Sims has turned his back on the Have A Nice Day Universe! The world’s foremost Batmanologist returns to the show to enact his rematch clause on reigning champ, Meg Lovell and he’s got some choice words for myself, Meg and a few other previous guests.
Once that’s out of his system, we sit down to talk about his new book, Down Set Fight, the WWE Network, and we even answer some listener questions.

It’s a super special show this week as I’m joined by the Big Blue Bruiser himself, AssailANT, who shares his thoughts and feelings about the last few years of his life in Chikara.
From his time in GEKIDO, right through to being accepted as part of The Colony and then seeing his home destroyed by Condor Security, as well as his involvement in Icarus’ revolution and the return of Chikara, no stone goes unturned in this interview!

I can’t put into words how thrilled I am to welcome the very first pro wrestler guest to this week’s show, in the form of The Submission Squad’s own Evan Gelistico!
This is a bit of a different one than usual, but it’s almost definitely the most fun I’ve had recording an episode, and I hope everyone else finds it as fun to listen to as we chat about independent wrestling, WrestleMania III and TNA.

This week I’m joined by the host of the host of Straight Shoot, Aubrey Sitterson to talk about growing up in the battleground between WWF and WCW, the mysticism behind Bret “The Hitman” Hart and the appeal of big fat dudes who do moonsaults.
We also delve into wrestling video games, The Ultimate Warrior and Master P and The No-Limit Soldiers, and have it out over his aversion to Chikara.

This week I’m joined by the artistic sensation that is Meghan Lovell, who you may know as sailorswayze. We talk about her recent and all-consuming love of pro-wrestling, the kid in her school who loved John Cena a bit too much and how she came to be tight with Big E.
It’s also fun because you get to hear me sound like the oldest, whitest dude as I try and “get down with the kids” and talk about shipping. I’m only 23!
