Episode 10: Leonard F. Chikarason

Leonard-F.-ChikarasonWhat better way to celebrate ten episodes of Have A Nice Day, than with an extra-special, deluxe episode with my first guest who is actually in the wrestling industry, commentator extraordinaire, Leonard F. Chikarason?!

In this two-hour(!) chat, we go all over the place, from his teenaged run-ins with the ECW crew, to his current role as commentator for the remaining Wrestlings Is and Absolute Intense Wrestling.

He also settles the very first Have A Nice Day feud, as Leonard addresses Chris Sims’ claims that indie commentators are too cool to call an Ace Crusher a Diamond Cutter. There’s also a lot of talk about comic books, even more than I anticipated. Enjoy the show!

Episode 3: Niam Suggitt

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)
