Episode 76 – GeppettoMania!

Just (barely) in time for Wrestlemania, TWO great interviews talking about the co-mingling of pro-wrestling and pop culture.

Dave Lagana has worked with WWE, Ring of Honor and Total Nonstop Action.  He was also a staff writer for Friends and is currently doing projects with Billy Corgan.

Brian Fritz has hosted the excellent Between the Ropes since the 90’s (!).  He’s interviewed pretty much everyone in prowrestling and once beat Jeff Jarrett with a belt.

Kyle from Pele Media does a run in and some cool wrestling theme music is played.

The Digressions:

  • The story how Cosmic Geppetto got its name
  • The much missed I Want Wrestling podcast
  • Stacy Keibler
  • Steven Seagal did a movie with Van Damme.  No, not that Van Damme.
  • How bad an actor is Vin Diesel?
