Podcast Episode 10: WrestleManiacs

I don’t know about you, but I have never understood the love of pro wrestling. As luck would have it, a TON of my friends are long-time fans, and two of them graciously agreed to come on the show and win me over.

Meet Erik Truby and Dave Ranallo. Pro wrestling has never been so dorky.
