Fan To Fan #35: CHRIS GST

DOWNLOAD

It takes a lot of time and hard work to keep a website running. Thankfully, Pro Wrestling Ponderings has Chris GST to keep the lights on, and other cliches! Chris and Kevin talk about wrestling fans and their video collections, becoming a fan of the Indies, Ring of Honor, the state of California, and of course, lots of inside talk on Pro Wrestling Ponderings, including one tidbit that caused a lot of controversy. If you enjoyed last weeks episode with Jerome, this is a perfect companion piece. This is possibly the most ADD episode of Fan to Fan yet.

Fan to Fan #34: JEROME CUSSON

DOWNLOAD

Two of the co-founders of Pro Wrestling Ponderings sit down to discuss the fifth year anniversary of the website. Travel back in time to hear about how the website came about, initial plans, how those plans have changed, and some inside scoops on the inner workings and history of PWP. Of course, Jerome talks about growing up a fan of the WWF, taking a break from wrestling before jumping back in, relationships he’s cultivated with AAW and the Squared Circle, and his time spent as a pro wrestling commentator. It’s a long one folks, but any person who has been following PWP for a period of time will get a kick out of this weeks discussion.
