Leonard F. Chikarason returns to the podcast to discuss – wait for it – MONSTER TRUCKS! He recently attended a MONSTER JAM event in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania with his family and lived to tell about it! We delve into a brief history of monster trucks, a comparison of the differences between Monster Truck Nationals and Monster Jam (SPOILER – it’s like NXT and Monday Night Raw), the controversy behind Bigfoot splitting from the Monster Jam circuit, and what professional wrestling could learn from the bookers who write for monster trucks!

In this special mid-week episode of the podcast, Kenny Herzog returns to discuss his Rolling Stone Q&A article with former WWE Superstar and current UFC-contracted fighter CM Punk (read here)! We discuss how the interview was put together, interesting tidbits that were cut out of the article, how Punk might draw on pay-per-view compared to other wrestlers-turned-fighters, his other wrestling-related articles on RollingStone.com, and just what the heck was Punk buying at Walgreens?

Wrestlefolks #69: LEONARD F. CHIKARASON’S MONTHLY VISIT (October 2014)

Podcaster/wrestling commentator Leonard F. Chikarason (Longbox Heroes, Absolute Intense Wrestling, CHIKARA) makes his monthly visit to the podcast! We keep this one under 90 minutes for the first time in our podcasting love affair.

Instead of a number of weird Youtube clips, we watched a special World Championship Wrestling episode of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, where Sting, Madusa, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper got really, really upset within seconds of the panel beginning. It’s a jewel!

SEAN BLAZED (@seanblazed) returns to the podcast to watch some weird wrestling clips on Youtube with me, such as…

– Alex Wright doing a quick three at a WCW Thunder open-mic
– Scott Steiner & Test arguing over which of them own actress Stacy Keibler
– Hulk Hogan insults New Japan Pro Wrestling’s top stars with some tourist-level Japanese
– THAT’S GOTTA BE – IT’S GOTTA BE KANE…at a backyard wrestling event.
– Pro wrestling’s best manager/promoter puts all of Japan on notice

Plus, Sean vents about how awful Canada’s version of the WWE Network is and gushes about how awesome New Japan and NXT are!

This is the part where I tell you to follow the guest on Twitter, but seriously, FOLLOW SEAN ON TWITTER. He’s one of the funniest people on it.

(WARNING: Due to a faulty microphone wire, the recording only picked up my computer’s microphone on Skype. Sean sounds silky-smooth, but my audio’s rougher than usual. My apologies.)

Podcaster/pro wrestling commentator/quality friend LEONARD F. CHIKARASON (Longbox Heroes, Absolute Intense Wrestling, CHIKARA) returns for his monthly super-sized visit to the podcast! This month, we return to that format we threw out the window last month, watching some weird wrestling videos on Youtube, such as…

– Kevin Nash singing a duet with his new best friend, Martin Short
– Konnan convincing World Championship Wrestling to spend $250,000 so he could get stoned with his friends and screw around with a camera
– Scott Steiner does morning newscast; gets hit on by the owner of a Shoney’s restaurant

Before the fun, we have a legitimately thoughtful discussion about depression and anxiety, and how to deal with both of them (both in constructive and destructive ways). If that’s not your thing, you can skip to the 50:00 mark.
