Episode 44: King of Trios

So, I went to America.

Over the course of four days, I saw one TNA Impact taping and then all three nights of CHIKARA’s King of Trios. This episode is a collection of post-show recordings with Danielle Matheson, Chris Sims, Kyle Starks and Gavin Jasper. One of them was done in a Waffle House.

Easily the greatest weekend of my life. Thank you to everyone that made it so very special.

Episode 37: Andrew Johnson

Episode 31: Leonard F. Chikarason II

You Only Live Twice is only two weeks away, so I sat back down with previous guest Leonard F. Chikarason for an in-depth chat about his own thoughts and feeling on CHIKARA’s shut-down and ressurection, as well as the future of the promotion.

We also talked a bunch about comic books, so keep listening through the end music for another twenty minutes of chat from myself and Mr. Chikarason.
