My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 420: It’s RVD!

It’s been a year in the making, but it’s happened; RVD is my guest for episode 420 of the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast. I am genuinely grateful to Rob Van Dam for spending time with me on the pod to discuss his wrestling career and his work with CBD. Learn more about that on his website right here.

During our conversation, I mentioned a cheer that Chad Smart, Jeremy Conroy, and I did as the Spirit Squad during WrestleMania 22 weekend. Here’s the link, as we expressed our appreciation for RVD! Check out RVD’s YouTube channel too!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 419: Wrestling Under the Influence

Wrestling and beer come together again for this week’s podcast. My dad and I enjoy a brew by Center Ice Brewing called The Old Arena Lager. We pair the beer with a conversation about the times we checked out wrestling at the Arena and the Kiel Center in St. Louis. Check it out!

Nerds United 304: No Turkey Celebration This Year

This week on Nerds United, we have to forego the annual “Turkey Before Turkey” that we’ve been celebrating for several years.

The Reason?

Greg’s sick.

Not only was there no Wild Turkey, but he and his family didn’t get to go celebrate Thanksgiving.

Silver lining? He gets to go back to work tomorrow.

On this episode, the guys discuss some of the comics they read in the last week as well as what they watched (don’t sleep on Slumberland on Netflix).

Lastly, we discuss the tragic passing of Jason David Frank. This time of year, depression can really set in and your demons can creep in. Now, help is just 3 digits away. 9-8-8. Don’t hesitate. You are worth it.

Be kind. Especially to yourself.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 418: Movie Mania

Young Rock has quickly become one of my favorite TV shows. While I know it’s a TV show, not a movie, I’m throwing it under the Movie Mania banner… This week, Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Payton Ayers joins me. Payton plays D’Lo Brown on Young Rock. He shares more about his experiences on the hit show.

Follow Payton on Twitter; his handle is @Fresh_Ayers8.

Nerds United 303: The Comics Keep Us Young

Hey hey it’s new episode time. This week the guys get you caught up on the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament, talk about strong females like Emily Blunt and Stephanie Phillips, are surprised to learn that RIPD 2 is available now on Netflix, and The Santa Clauses has premiered on Disney+.

Enjoy, Happy Thanksgiving, and Be Kind.

Nerds United 302: Black Panther Wakanda Forever and Christmas Movie Tourney

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg give a first round update on the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament 2022. Who’s in and who’s out?

Meanwhile, we have some sad news as we discuss the passing of legendary voice actor Kevin Conroy.

And finally, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Admittedly, more spoilers than we’d like (Sorry BFOTS). But it’s a solid flick and a great addition to the MCU. So if you were on the fence about going to watch it, you can take our word for it – it’s worth it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 417: Survivor Series Nostalgia

Survivor Series was one of my favorite wrestling events in the early days. As a teen, I loved watching the Thanksgiving night (and later Thanksgiving eve) tradition unfold. However, I don’t think everyone feels the same about the event. So this week, it’s a stroll down memory lane and sharing my love of this nostalgic event.

And since it’s episode 417, we’re just three weeks away from episode 420, and I’m still trying to convince Rob Van Dam to join me on the podcast. Please help spread the word.

Power Half Hour 82: Presidential Trivia

This is election week for the mid-terms. Lots to vote upon and much will be decided.

We don’t talk about any of that. Instead, we offer a half hour of useless presidential trivia. Oh boy…not that the presidents are useless, but that the knowledge of these facts won’t exactly get you far in life.

So enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 416: Return of the Wrestling Figure Drive

The My 1-2-3 Cents/Stride Pro Wrestling Action Figure Drive is back! We are entering our fifth year of collecting wrestling figures and wrestling-related toys for the Toys for Tots program. Here in southern Illinois, more than 15,000 toys were donated last year. We were able to contribute more than 250 wrestling figures to that total.

I’d love to do that again this year! Please consider donating cash to shop for figures or figures. The deadline for dropping off is at the Stride Pro Wrestling show Hostile Holiday on Saturday, Dec. 10. You can also DM me on social media to get details about shipping something.

Nerds United 301: Additions and Subtractions (Castings and Cancellations)

HEY HEY! It’s time for a new Nerds United. This week, Greg and Mike are filling you in on some comic book purchases (by Mike) and the fact that Greg hasn’t had any time to read in the last week.

So the news and discussion this week focuses on the revamped Green Lantern show headed to HBOMax sometime in the probably distant future (we’re not confident it will happen in our lifetimes) as well as Henry Cavill coming back to the DCU and Yahya being cast as Wonder Man for Marvel.

Also…Winchesters and Stargirl are axed while Sandman gets renewed at Netflix.

And as a bonus: there’s a trailer for A Christmas Story Christmas. You guessed it – the sequel to A Christmas Story. It’s a nice segway into the fact that we’re starting the Christmas Movie Madness Tournament this week (which we didn’t talk about at all on the show).

Enjoy, and be kind.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 415: 2 is Greater Than 1

It’s Halloween, and we’re celebrating with a look back at a few haunting matches that Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton has had through the years. The most recent was the Casket Match against Cash at Stride Pro Wrestling’s Fall for All event. Watch it here.

Hatton also once wrestled in costume as the Big Muddy Monster at the Big Muddy Monster Brewfest. Watch that one here.

Nerds United 300: We Went LIVE!

For our very special 300th episode, we attempted to go live and got some interaction on YouTube.

We talked about comics, including what Greg purchased and what Mike read. And we talked about the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania!

Some DOOM Patrol and and while we’re talking DC, we go ahead and talk about Black Adam, since we both saw it last week.

Hope you enjoy this version of the show. I think we’ll do this some more and keep working the kinks out.

Be kind.

Power Half Hour 81: Frightful

This week on the Half Hour of Power, Chad and Greg put a couple bows on some previous topics and delve a little deeper into Halloween.

Perhaps the most frightful of all scenarios is looking at those wretched gas prices these days. And Chad is trying to figure out what to eat.

That’s a real sentence. re-read that.

Elsewhere in the episode, horror movies like zombie pictures and torture porn. And we talk about a shared horror universe where all the slasher baddies come together.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 414: The Casket Match

Over the weekend, Heath Hatton and Cash tore it up in Stride Pro Wrestling’s first-ever casket match. To fit in with a Halloween vibe this week on the podcast, I’m providing the commentary from that historic match. I’ve never done it before, so please let me know your thoughts.

Nerds United 299 v2: THIS IS NOT EPISODE 300!

To paraphrase Dante, “we weren’t even supposed to be here this week.”

We promised our next episode would be the live extravaganza for episode 300. But there was a lot that happened in the last week so we called ab audible and therefore have for you Episode 299 v. 2.

And we’re talking comics, movies, tv, and more. Just like the intro of the show indicates.

From Locke & Key to not yet Black Adam.

Power Half Hour 80: From Plecostomus to Puppies – PETS!

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg discuss the pets they’ve had in their lives. From Greg’s early years with a small fish tank and Chad’s husky Mandy (to whom he did NOT sing the Barry Manilow song of the same name) to rodents and eventually the dogs that Greg had as an adult that he was unable to have as a child.

That’s one hell of a run-on sentence.

Enjoy. And tell the stories of your pets as well.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 413: Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

Wow, it was an excellent week for asking questions, as several of you did just that. It’s Ask My 1-2-3 Cents. Questions range from my favorite Stride event to who I would put in a WWE ring from the indy scene. Thanks for listening!

Nerds United 299: It was VERY Late

This week on Nerds United, Mike regales Greg with the spoils of his most recent trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL). Saga, Justice League Dark, and yes, BFotS Josh, some Locke & Key.

Now, not much to discuss this week – or at least, we didn’t discuss much this week.

Marvel pushed back some MCU movies, meaning we have to wait until 2026 for Secret Wars. Think about that. I have to live three and a half years to see Secret Wars. I’m not sure I can do it.

Also – Werewolf by (Mid)Night, She-Hulk, and a taste of LOTR Rings of Power.

And Josh, if you’re reading this…check your mail.

Power Half Hour 79: Rambleween

This episode is titled “Rambleween,” meaning I shouldn’t give Chad that much control in naming these episodes.

In this newest installment, the guys discuss costumes and cosplay. What are their respective dream cosplay? Would they even be able to be in good enough shape to fit into their cosplays if they created them?

We also wrap up our last conversation about football and fandom. And since it’s the Halloween season, we throw some monsters, I mean Munsters, your way.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 412: The Interview

Stride Pro Wrestling has a new heavyweight champion named Payton Ayers. Ayers graduated from the Stride Pro Wrestling Training School and recently won the gold from Dexter at ‘Fright Night.’ His first defense is coming up on Oct. 22 at Fall for All in Pinckneyville.

Nerds United 298: Upcoming Movies and “Get to Know Greg”

You read that right. In this episode, Mike grills Greg with some questions he pulled from late night television. So over eight and a half years in to this podcast, you finally get to know Greg just a little bit.

Also, and more importantly, Greg made a trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) this week and shares his acquisitions. Plus, we were graced with some new movie trailers this week, including our first look at (and listen to) The Super Mario Bros. Movie, a badass Santa picture called Violent Night, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Plus, Greg has some thoughts on the latest She-Hulk episode, and we parlay that into a little Daredevil talk.

Episode 300 is nearing. We are kicking around doing a live show. If so – be ready and bring questions.

And be kind.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 411: That’s Gotta Be Kane!

Hellfire and brimstones, it’s been 25 years since Kane made his WWE debut. This week, Greg Mehocko and Chad Smart from the Power Half Hour joined me to discuss that night in St. Louis. The three of us were there for this show (In Your House: Badd Blood).

In this episode, we discuss Kane and his impact, along with the first Hell in a Cell match and the untimely passing of the legendary Brian Pillman.

Nerds United 297: Deadpool’s Bringing a Friend

And it’s not Rob McElhenny.

This week’s podcast covers a wide range of topics from The Last of Us (not to be confused with This Is Us) to Hugh Jackman donning the claws for another go-round with his rival/buddy Ryan Reynolds.

Greg’s in Minnesota this week so we weren’t even sure there would be a show. But we’re happy to be able to bring you the show on time as planned.

Power Half Hour 78: Football Fan-Dumb

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg discuss their love of football, and more specifically, their love of particular football teams.

It’s cruel, really, Greg’s two teams are a combined 2-5. Chad’s team is off to a 3-0 start. So naturally he picks right now to want to discuss football.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 410: Music Mania

Music is a massive part of the pro wrestling experience. Some 35 years ago, the WWF released the Piledriver: The Wrestling Album II. This week on the podcast, I look back on the album and share a quick interview with Koko B. Ware, who performed the album’s title track. (The interview is from 2014, but it’s still good stuff.)

Nerds United 296: Tweaking Marvel Movies

This week on Nerds United, Greg and Mike have a good discussion about overlapping tv shows on streaming services, vaguely remember the Netflix show “Shadow and Bones,” conveniently as Season 2 is announced.

Greg went to a Fall Fest on Saturday and tasted some beers. He had a great time, caught up with a lot of people he hadn’t seen in awhile, and made a promise to put some love out there for Colden Brewery, an up-and-coming adult beverage maker in Centralia, IL.

Also – the guys make some changes to some pre-MCU Marvel movies in hopes of making them better.

Power Half Hour 77: Ask Greg and Chad with Special Guest Kevin!

The Power Half Hour (and Change) is back and this time, we’re bringing a friend.

Kevin Hunsperger of My 1-2-3 Cents (the podcast and also www.my123cents.com) is the moderator and plays Captain Question in a spur of the moment episode where he asks Chad and Greg various questions.

It’s a solid episode with insight into nostalgia and much more.

And also it’s the first episode in almost a month so be happy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 409: The Interview

David Lee Walker has been a part of Stride Pro Wrestling for a couple of years and recently won his first singles championship. He’s the new No Limits Champion. And this week, he’s my guest on the podcast. We talk about hi

Nerds United 295: D23 Review

This week on Nerds United, Greg recaps his week as a single parent. There’s some Constantine news as Keanu Reeves is coming BACK!

Last weekend was D23 and it was rife with news and trailers. So naturally the guys discuss everything from The Santa Clauses to The Thunderbolts!

Enjoy. Be kind.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 408: Wrestling Under the Influence

RVD was known as Mr. Monday Night, so it only seemed fitting to pair him with Hot Fudge Monday, a brown ale by Mirror Twin Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky. It also gives me the excuse to pitch Rob Van Dam to be a part of episode 420 of this podcast. (Fingers crossed.)

Nerds United Episode 294: Only Eight More Months and then…It’s Gonna Be Me!

This week on Nerds United, Mike overcomes the plague, Greg is terrified of being home alone with his kids next week. The Joker has a name. There are some trailers that arrived.

As always – we appreciate you.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 407: The Birth of a Brand

Nerds United 293: One Ring to Rule Them All

This week on the show, Mike provides us with an update on the 80s Movie Madness Tournament. The guys watched She-Hulk and Greg watched the first portion of Lord of the Rings: The Ring of Power.

No DC Fandome this year, and Ben Kinglsey could be returning to the MCU.

It’s general mayhem on the Nerds United Podcast.

Power Half Hour 76: Boy Meets Nostalgia

First of all…do not blame Greg for the featured photo. He was not the one to ruin your childhood. That was all Chad.

This week we look at the classic 90s TGIF television sow Boy Meets World. We discuss a few other notable series from that time, but really, it’s largely Boy Meets World. What about that show aids it to stand the test of time?

Chad calls it perhaps the greatest tv show of all time. And remember Mr. Feeny’s final words… “Do good.”

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 406: 2 Is Greater Than 1

The Royal Rumble is one of my favorite WWE events each year. Next month, Stride Pro Wrestling is trying its hand at the concept. The Stride Rumble is set for Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022, at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I discuss the Rumble and other news and notes from the world of pro wrestling, including AEW and WWE.

Nerds United 292: The Quest for the Best Title

Comic books were purchased. Comic books were read. We watched some tv and movies (She-Hulk, House of the Dragon, Uncharted) and an update on the 80s Movie Madness Tournament.

Enjoy.

Nerds United 291: An Evergreen Episode

This week on Nerds United is a special episode, we keep the conversation OFF of current topics.

No She-Hulk. No Sandman. No comics we read or recently purchased at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL).

Instead, we have a topic inspired by The Sandman, a topic about favorite remembered dreams. We go on with a follow-up to a recent episode and the Cartoon All-Stars by creating Cartoon Intervention Teams for each other.

And lastly, have comic book movies peaked?

Enjoy the show. Rate. Review. Check out our Linktree, which was recently retooled.

Power Half Hour 75: Great Movie Debate

This week on the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad look at another of Greg’s podcasts, Nerds United. On Nerds United on Facebook and Twitter, Mike and Greg are having an 80s Movie Madness Tournament.

Chad has…opinions. He takes issue with some of the movies we left out of the tournament. And as you can see from the main photo, Chad decided to highlight The Apple’s absence from the tourney.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 405: Wrestling Under the Influence

The Hollywood Blondes are among the most iconic teams from the early 90s. But Brian Pillman and Steve Austin aren’t the first duos to use the name. I talk about that while trying Tea House: Morning Ceremony (a sour blonde ale) by Ebb and Flow Ferminations in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Nerds United 290: In and Out in Under an Hour

The brand new episode of Nerds United with Greg and Mike recalls Mike’s trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) and the purchases he made there. They also discuss their different approaches to reading comics. Who wants to prolong a good story and who wants to finish a story to move on to the next one?

A less-than-loved Ryan Reynolds movie is surprisingly getting a sequel. Greg learns on the show that Reynolds will not reprise his role.

Also – A couple trailers dropped throughout the week, including a true story that’s not based in genre. But could it end up being the best war movie of all time?

Finally…how was She-Hulk?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 404: Potty Talk

The potty talk takes over the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast this week. It’s all part of Storytime, when I ran into three (now) WWE Hall of Famers in the bathroom at a wrestling show and one who will likely be a Hall of Famer one day.

Nerds United 289: Watching The Sandman, Reading Grim and More

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss The Sandman and Paper Girls, two comic book adaptations that hit streaming services recently.

There was also a fair bit of reading done the past week, as Greg read everything from Batman to Grim. And he pulled out his recent read of Locke and Key for all of the Sandman crossover therein.

Lastly, Greg and Mike did meet up this past week, haphazardly. And they watched a cartoon from 1990, to job their memory first, and they followed it all the way through “just because.”

Enjoy. Tell your friends. Leave a comment. Rate and review.

Power Half Hour 74: Big Sports Moments

This week on the Power Half Hour, Chad and Greg discuss some momentous occasions in sports. At least, some that have occurred in our lifetimes.

On the heels of watching Long Gone Summer, Greg and Chad revisit the Summer of 1998, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and the race for the record.

We also discuss a little bit about Lake Placid in 1980 and the Miracle on Ice.

On our journey towards more content, we ask: what do you want to hear?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 403: Confessions of an Indy Ring Announcer

Stride Pro Wrestling continues to amaze me. This past weekend we had two great shows, leading to a big event on Saturday, September 10. For the first time, Stride will have its version of the Royal Rumble, with 30 participants; past and present Stride stars will be involved. Plus, a grudge match between Heath Hatton and Cash and a Dog Collar Match between Bud Galloway and David Lee Walker. Be sure to join us that night at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois!

Nerds United 288: Batgirl Nixed and 80s Movie Tourney Begins

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk about the biggest news of the week, Batgirl is no longer set for release. This alters the alleged DC timeline we discuss.

Also, 80s classic Road House is being remade over on Amazon, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. And that leads directly into the bigger news of the day, which if you follow us on social media, you already know:

We have an 80s Movie Tournament. Similar to our Christmas Movie Tournament a few years back, just comment in the match up and tell us who survives and who is gone.

64 movies. Already some tough, tough matches.

Enjoy. And Be kind.

Power Half Hour 73: Where Are They Now?

This week on the podcast, Greg and Chad discuss where the hell they’ve been in the last month.

Greg was on 1.5 vacations, and Chad has been busy as well, travelling to the Midwest more than once (why Chad, why) plus having a girlfriend. And Greg has cleaned up a lot of puke in the last week.

So it was almost a month since last we got together. We missed each other. And most importantly, we missed you.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 402: Wrestling Under the Influence

Nerds United 287: New Episode for July 30, 2022

This week on Nerds United, Mike has a couple good questions he poses to the panel. Also, Mike did some reading, Greg did some viewing, and Paper Girls is available on Amazon Prime.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 401: Ric Flair’s Last Match

Ric Flair’s Last Match is coming up this weekend. It’s a three-day celebration of the man we call ‘Nature Boy.’ This week on the podcast, Chad Smart and I talk all about it, as we were both there for Flair’s retirement match at WrestleMania 24. What are your thoughts on The Man getting into the ring one more time?

Nerds United 286: SDCC and VKM = Busy Week

This week on Nerds United, Greg is back from vacation and that coincides with San Diego Comic Con.

Both Mike and Greg did some reading this past week – Mike with some classic Batman and Greg with a Moon Knight collection as well as a Locke and Key tie-in story that – bonus content I forgot to mention on the show itself – has a Sandman connection.

We talk about I am Groot and Spider-Man Freshman Year, spend a little time on Dungeons and Dragons, and discuss the bombshell news of the week in professional wrestling, that Vincent K McMahon has retired.

We were really just trolling Kevin from My 1-2-3 Cents and trying to scoop him, and while we recorded the show Friday night, we didn’t get a chance to get it uploaded until Saturday night. In the meantime, we picked a little fight with Kevin on Facebook and gave him a window to get his own “bonus show” out there. So check that out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Bonus Episode: Vince McMahon Retires

It’s a sentence, until recently, I never thought I’d hear, Vince McMahon is retiring. But the longtime leader of WWE has made the announcement and is stepping away from his company. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton has a unique perspective on the situation and joins me for this bonus episode of the podcast.

Nerds United 285: From The Boys to Thor

After a rare week off, Mike and Greg are back with a brand new show. In that week, the guys finished watching The Boys and Ms. Marvel and they even saw Thor: Love and Thunder.

Also, some good stuff about books that were read and the generosity of great people.

Spoilers, but you probably already figured that out.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 399: Wrestling Under the Influence

Dogs, birds, and snakes, oh my! Pets have been a big part of wrestling through the years. This week I’m toasting my favorite animals in the business while having Box of Chocolate by Charleville Microbrewery in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

Power Half Hour 72: Arenas and Stadiums, Rockers and Wrestlers Selling Them Out

This week, Chad is heading home to go to a concert, fulfilling a promise years in the making.

So on this week’s episode of the Power Half Hour, Greg and Chad talk about finales and retirement, like Motley Crue’s final tour years ago, and Ric Flair’s retirement match at Wrestlemania 24 and his “last match” later this summer.

Now I’m not allowed to be cynical and just say these guys want a payday. Yes, being in front of a crowd is all they know (as well as being in front of ladies and comical piles of illegal drugs), but we can all agree that none of these performers are in their prime.

Still, if you want to support these aging acts (like I know you do), pitter patter. Enjoy yourself. Just realize that most of the people in the crowds are grandparents by now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 398: Wrestling Under the Influence

I’m celebrating the birth of our country with some beer and Lex Luger’s WWF run. It’s another Wrestling Under the Influence and this time Hell or High Water Watermelon Beer by 21st Amendment Brewing is the beer of choice. I’m pairing it with the USA-loving version of Lex Luger from 1993-95.

Nerds United 284: Umbrella Academy and 4th of July

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg prepare for the 4th of July (by Greg being extra old-man) and Mike can’t cook rice. Go figure.

Also, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is out and the guys talk about that show. And Game of Thrones is getting a spinoff but it’s not one we (okay, Greg) would most like to see. That doesn’t mean he won’t watch.

Also, which cinematic universe has more re-watch potential? MCU or the stuff from the DCEU? We have our thoughts but are curious as to yours.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 397: Wrestling Under the Influence

Steve Austin’s Broken Skull American Lager is the drink of choice for this week’s Wrestling Under the Influence. What!?! That’s right. It’s an excellent brew from El Segundo Brewing Company.

Nerds United 283: It’s Time for Sony to Sell Spider-Man

This week on the show, the guys admit to getting a little fresh air in their old age. Greg completed a comic and started a new one. Mike didn’t have time to read this week.

The guys finished Obi-Wan Kenobi and gave a few thoughts on it. But really, a fair amount of the conversation is on Sony screwing up a(nother) Spider-Man villain. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, star of the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie, said that in this version, Kraven is a lover of animals and a protector of nature. That’s pretty much the farthest from the history of the character. So Greg decided that it’s time for Sony to be done with Spider-Man and all of his associates.

Power Half Hour 71: Struggles of a Wannabe Writer

This week on the Power Almost Half Hour, Chad and Greg talk about wanting to be writers. Or at least, having stories in their heads that they haven’t quite found a way to put onto paper.

Nerds United 282: Joker Sequel Could Add Lady Gaga?

In all honesty, it’s 7:40am on a Monday because I had a busy weekend and didn’t get this produced until now. And I have to shower and shave and get to work yet, so the write-up will be lacking.

This week on the show, Mike and I talked about some specific comics, the Joker sequel/Lady Gaga rumors, the fact that Guy Ritchie is developing a Hercules live-action movie, there’s a Duke Nukem movie in talks (again), and more.

Look, I don’t know what you want me to say…we recorded this show 36 hours ago and Mike’s the one who writes down all of the topics of discussion.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 396: Wrestling Under the Influence

Impact Wrestling is celebrating 20 years, so what better way to join the party than with an episode of Wrestling Under the Influence. I’m pairing Cake Eater Turtle Stout by Center Ice Brewing Company in St. Louis this week.

Power Half Hour 70: Star Wars Celebration Recap

This time around on the Power Half Hour, Chad regales us with his time spent at Star Wars Celebration back in May.

From the features photo, you can see the creativity put into some cosplay this year. Chad talks to us about some of the sights and sounds of the event.

Power Half Hour 69: Chad Revisits Monsterpalooza

**Editor’s note – this was actually last week’s episode and I’m not sure a) why it didn’t publish on the 7th and 2) why I didn’t realize until a week later that it didn’t pub. Apologies. You’ll get another new show tomorrow.

This week on the Power Half Hour (which some of you will be happy to see is under 30 minutes), we catch up on some of Chad’s whereabouts from recent weekends.

Up first – Monsterpalooza. It’s a horror con out in Pasadena, the home of roses and horror, apparently. What were some of the sights Chad saw, and which celebrities did he see while he was there?

If you like horror, you’ll probably like Monsterpalooza.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 395: Wrestling Under the Influence

Cheers, I’ve brought back Wrestling Under the Influence to the podcast. I’m trying Four Giants and the Haze of Destiny by Founders Brewing this time and talking about some of my favorite giants in the world of pro wrestling.

Nerds United 281: Does Marvel Care about Comic Book Sales?

This week on Nerds United, many topics are discussed. DC finally gave us a trailer for Black Adam (“finally,” despite the movie being four months away, right Mike?). Also, we both forgot Paper Girls on Amazon was a thing, and were surprised with some preliminary stills.

Kevin Smith is getting another bite of the Masters of the Universe apple. The internet reacted predictably.

The Sandman is also coming to Netflix.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a brilliant show, better than Stranger Things. That’s why Best Friend of the Show Josh is all caught up on one and not the other.

Also, Ms. Marvel debuted to a massive social media push. And Greg can only hope that the more diverse shows and movies which attract a more diverse audience mean that more people will GO BUY COMIC BOOKS! But Mike raises the question…does Marvel care any more about comic book sales?

We do have a little fun at the end, where we take one Marvel hero and one DC hero and put them together in a Lethal Weapon type of pair.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 394: Ageism in Wrestling

Ageism is alive and well in pro wrestling. It’s nothing new, really, but something that I’ve noticed a lot more of lately. This week, I share my thoughts on legends returning to the ring. By the way, here’s the clip on TikTok that I’m referring to in this podcast.

Nerds United 280: Mike Can Read Also

Last week on the show, Greg had a long list of comics he had read and wanted to discuss.

This time around, Mike’s reading list is as long as…well, it’s long. From Grim to Justice League Dark to Batman Damned and Saga, Mike has his hands full.

We also talk about trailers for Pinocchio and Gotham Knights, Greg watched Obi-Wan Kenobi while Mike watched Stranger Things Season 4. And both of the boys watched…The Boys.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 393: Time for a Change

After seven-and-a-half years of doing the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast, I realize it may be time for a change. I’m frustrated right now, and I’m unsure how to fix that. So, what say you? As a listener of the show, I value your input. Please let me know what direction you’d like to see My 1-2-3 Cents head into the future.

Nerds United 279: Almost Obi-Wan

This week’s episode was recorded mere hours before Obi-Wan Kenobi was released, so there are absolutely zero spoilers in this episode.

We do talk about the first look at Andor, which was given to us last week, as well as some images of the new Blue Beetle. There was also an odd call in LA LA Land for body doubles for Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudeikis, which led to rumors of the actor to be attached to the Blue Beetle movie. However, seems like Mike squashed those rumors.

And last week, of course, we got the first full trailer (and what Greg hopes is the last trailer) for Thor: Love and Thunder.

It’s coming.

Power Half Hour 68: To All the Jobs We’ve Held Before

This time around, as promised at the end of the last episode, Chad and Greg are going through their professional journeys, the jobs they’ve held in life up to where they are today.

What was young Chad doing as a 12 or 14 year old? What part time job did Greg work during baseball season in high school? How did Greg get into radio? How did Chad end up in LA?

Every path is different. That’s the beauty of things.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 392: 2 Is Greater Than 1

I can’t even begin to explain how awesome this past Saturday night was. Rivals at Stride Pro Wrestling, but real-life friends, it was me and Heath Hatton going one on one in the ring. This week we give you a peek behind the curtain.

Nerds United 278: Rescue Rangers, Trailers, and a Plethora of Comics

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg both spent some time watching Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers movie this weekend and were pleasantly surprised by it, especially all of the crossovers into other intellectual properties.

Also, in the last week or so we, the viewing public, were given five different trailers for upcoming shows. She-Hulk, Cobra Kai, The Winchesters, The Boys, and The Umbrella Academy. The guys take a few minutes on each show and gauge anticipation.

Finally, well, actually firstly in the timeline of the show, Greg gives an update on some of the comics he’s been reading. Good enjoyable works, one and all.

Power Half Hour 67: Chad’s Departure from the Workforce

This week on the Power Half Hour, the duo discusses Chad’s recent departure from his previous employer.

Look, at the end of the day, you have to A) feel satisfied with the work you do and 2) be compensated appropriately for it. And I get it…circumstances don’t always allow you to have both, or even one of those. But if you can, make the change.

And that’s largely what we discuss in this episode – the feeling of knowing your worth and thinking long-term to make sure you achieve it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 391: Breaking Up

They say that breaking up is hard to do. And I agree with who they are. Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I have been friends for over a decade and won the Stride Pro Wrestling tag team titles back in 2019. But earlier this year, he took his frustrations out on me, and now we’re wrestling each other on May 21 in Marion, Illinois.

So ahead of that match, I thought it would be fun to countdown a few of my favorite wrestling breakups. Which ones are on your list? Let me!

Nerds United 277: The Full Doctor Strange 2 Discussion

This week on a brand new Nerds United, Greg has a slight existential crisis about growing older and possibly aging out of comic books. As he says in the show, if he retired tomorrow he’d have enough to read to keep him busy for a long time. But we do talk about comics we’re reading.

Greg then tried to sell Mike on Avatar by telling him it is like Dances with Wolves. Not sure how successful that is.

We also talk about the Green Lantern animated feature trailer that came out.

And…more Doctor Strange 2…including SPOILERS!

Power Half Hour 66: Remembering Our Senior Years

Spring is in the air, and that means allergies.

But it also means seniors across the country are preparing for prom or a class trip and then…graduation.

Now, it’s been 22 years since Greg was in high school, and it’s been 30 years since Chad graduated. But the guys do their best to relive some of the old days and share some stories from way back when.

Nerds United 276: A Little Doctor Strange, Plus Cancellations

This week on Nerds United, Mike gives updates on the comics he has finished reading while Greg is still working on the same one. Also, shows in their decline were cancelled by the CW and a good director left a high-profile job.

If that’s not enough, we recorded this episode in between our two hosts watching Doctor Strange 2 – In the Multiverse of Madness. And the MCU boss says “golly gee, maybe we showed too much in the trailers.”

I could have told you that.

Enjoy the show.

Nerds United 275: Awaiting Doctor Strange 2 – and Tired of “Leaks”

This week on the Nerds Untied Podcast, Mike and Greg are eagerly awaiting Doctor Strange. We’re also over the excessive amount of footage and leaks and reports about the movie. It’s getting to the point that you can’t be on the internet two weeks before the movie hits theaters.

Also – Mike finished reading Marvel’s Avengers vs X-Men and thinks it could be an MCU storyline someday. Also, Ghostbusters Afterlife is getting a sequel, as is The Batman (color us surprised).

And while it’s not in the featured photo, we do spend a few minutes at the outset talking about Neal Adams, considered by many to be the GOAT of comic book artists, who passed away the day we recorded. What a life and what a legacy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 388: 2 is Greater Than 1

Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton is back for another round of 2 is Greater Than 1, and this time he’s offering some words of wisdom. We talk about pro wrestling, including WWE, AEW, and, Stride Pro Wrestling. He and I are will be wrestling each other on Saturday, May 21, at the Sioux Drive Center in Marion, Illinois. Check our Facebook page for more details.

Nerds United 274: More Nostalgia and Stories than We Anticipated

Look…we know the type of show we aim to be but we also know the type of show we are. And this week, there just wasn’t as much meat on the ol’ nerdy topic bone.

So true to our theme music, “comic books, movies, tv, and more,” we lean heavily on the “and more” this week.

This is a chicken pot pie episode, a little bit of everything.

We hope you like it. If you don’t, I promise we’ll try harder next time. I may even have something special in the back of my mind for you all.

Power Half Hour 65: Now to Show Love to One Nic Cage

This week on the Power Half Hour (give or take), Chad and Greg keep the positive momentum flowing. This episode is all about Nicholas Cage, and how we appreciate him.

That’s pretty much it. I’m going to spend more time on the featured photo than I will on this write-up.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 387: Saluki Con 2022

The 2022 Saluki Con is in the books. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this year’s event.  I spoke to a small group about pro wrestling and podcasting, two of my favorite things. For those who don’t know, Saluki Con is an event held at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale to celebrate all things nerd culture.

Nerds United 273: Our Favorite Cheers

In this episode, Mike and Greg do some of the usual news and notes, but then the guys piggyback off of an idea from the recent Oscars. No, no slaps here. But the Oscars recently introduced a fan-choice category of favorite cheers, and we had some disagreements with that list, so we came up with our own.

Power Half Hour 64: The Weird Al Appreciation Episode

Friends, this special episode is a Greg Mehochko idea. On this episode of the Power Half Hour (plus a minute), we talk about the great Weird Al Yankovic.

Specifically, we talk about how we first heard of Weird Al and the movie currently in production based on his life (and also what “based on a true story” really means in Hollywood).

Finally, we run down some of our favorite Weird Al songs. Since this is a 30-ish minute show, we didn’t do clips. But we trust your ability to type things into YouTube.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 386: The Power of Nostalgia

I have always maintained that nostalgia is a powerful drug. That was very evident during WrestleMania weekend, as fans were treated to not one but two nights of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin doing what he does best. This week, Chad Smart and I talk about that, and the role nostalgia plays in modern-day wrestling.

Nerds United 272: Sonic 2, Moon Knight, and Miss America

This week on Nerds United, Greg snuck his oldest out of school Friday to take him to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – and it’s an enjoyable flick.

Mike watched some stuff this week, as did Greg. The guys also talk about the upcoming end of Locke and Key as well as Chace Crawford, The Deep on The Boys, wondering if he’s going to be able to find work again after the third season of The Boys.

And of course, we talked about the second episode of Moon Knight.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 385: Raw After WrestleMania

The Raw after WrestleMania has developed quite a reputation over the past decade. Chad Smart and I analyze the trend and talk about our experiences at some of these shows. What are your thoughts?

Nerds united 271: Moon Knight and Comics…AND MORBIUS!

This week on the podcast, Mike and Greg talk about Mike’s most recent trip to Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL) as well as Greg’s trip to the tailor (think Kingsman Tailor but less death…more shame).

Greg also did some reading in the last week. And the guys talk about Wrestlemania. We’re sorry, Kevin, we know that’s your realm. Also, Greg had a scare with the final episodes of Blue Mountain State, but that situation sorted itself out.

Moon Knight is LIVE! We discuss that first episode a little bit. And in a surprise turn, GREG SAW MORBIUS! AND HE LIKED IT! He gets into spoilers, but…also talks about what he likes about the movie and some of the familiar Marvel tropes.

Enjoy. Tell people.

Power Half Hour 63: Oh Boy…Hang on Tight

Just like Wil Smith, this episode of the Power (more than) Half Hour is taking off the gloves and slapping down Hollywood with discussion about the Oscars and how Hollywood is a giant pot of hypocrisy. From one sided political attacks to empty statements which betray the history of Hollywood’s bad behavior, this is an episode that unleashes years of pent up frustrations with Hollywood’s annual circle jerk. Chad is a an old man yelling at clouds while Greg just wants to know why Dewayne Johnson wasn’t nominated for his role in “Jungle Cruise.”

(*Warning: This episode may contain subject matter that some find objectionable.)

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 384: Mania Memories

It’s WrestleMania Week. To me, it’s one of the best weeks of the year, especially if you are on the location where WrestleMania is. This week, I share a few Mania Memories from WrestleManias IV, 22, and 32. Let me know your Mania experienced

Nerds United 270: Our Top Five TV Show Theme Songs

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg discuss a few bits of news and notes before we turn our attention and your ears to our top five tv show theme songs.

Again – these are our favorites. It’s completely subjective.

Enjoy.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 383: More Random Thoughts

WrestleMania. Cody Rhodes. Fans are acting like jerks. They’re all part of the conversation on this week’s podcast.

Nerds united 269: Mike Spoils The Batman

Not for Greg. Greg had seen the movie. And we don’t talk about The Batman until the end of the show. So if you’re interested in hearing about Sonic 2 or Ms. Marvel or The Boys or what Greg acquired at Twilight Comics (Swansea, IL), please listen to the first 50 or so minutes of the show. We definitely provide ample warning when The Batman talk is coming along.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 382: Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

Nerds United 268: Changing Dates, Penguin on HBO Max, Pinocchio and The Boys

This week on Nerds United, Mike and Greg talk a little bit about several topics, including Warner/DC adjusting its theatrical release schedule, affecting several upcoming and anticipated films.

Also, on the heels of The Batman tearing it up in theaters, HBO Max has ordered a limited series for Colin Farrell’s The Penguin. Meanwhile, there are two Pinocchio’s coming to streaming services this year, and Mike says to avoid the Pinocchio from 2019.

We got an Obi-Wan trailer and a poster for the third season of The Boys (less than 24 hours after we recorded the podcast, we got a trailer for The Boys Season 3 – c’est la vie).

Power Half Hour 62: The MLB Episode

Allow me to put it this way…we talk about Major League Baseball as much as Major League Baseball is being played presently.

None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

But we came into the recording with that on the agenda. And then the show became a series of anecdotes and sidebars. Hear about Greg’s last vacation (2012) and the hijinks that kept him from driving in a different state.

We do talk a little football (XFL anyone?) and some college football.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 381: The Interview

Strideiversary is in the books, and there is a new Heavyweight Champion. Dexter excitingly won the belt. This week he’s my guest for a quick post-victory interview.
