My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 315: Wrestling Under the Influence

This week, we’re paying tribute to the Undertaker. My co-host Chad Smart and I run down the Undertaker’s historic 30-year career and share some thoughts on the big moments and matches from the Dead Man. I try Saugatuck Brewing’s The G.O.A.T., which is a pretty damn good oatmeal stout.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 309: Wrestling Under the Influence

Andre the Giant was one of the all-time greats in pro wrestling. His career kind of halted in 1990, and he never received the send-off that I, as a fan, would have liked to have seen.

So this week, I’m rebooking Andre’s final two years in wrestling and doing it with a Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter by my side. Special thanks to Tom Harness for the beer.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 306: Wrestling with the 80s

On Saturday, September 14, 1985, Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n Wrestling made its debut on CBS. While the cartoon may have been shortlived, it did create plenty of great memories for this old wrestling fan.

This week on the podcast, my co-host Chad Smart of the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network (PCPN), and I break down the cartoon and share a few tidbits about it.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 305: The Interview

One of my favorite things about Stride Pro Wrestling is the opportunities being given to young talent. B-Rad is one of the trainees at the Stride Pro Wrestling School and is currently the company’s Legacy Champion.

B-Rad, aka Tristan McPeak, shares stories of his fandom and how he transitioned from sitting in the front row to winning his first wrestling championship. We also learn a few fun facts about B-Rad as well.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 302: Beyond ThunderDome

COVID-19 has put a damper on a lot of things but it has also provided us with new opportunities like WWE’s ThunderDome. The technology gives fans watching a home the live crowd experience that’s been missing since quarantine started in the spring.

I tried getting in on the action for SummerSlam and even after getting an email telling me I was in, I was in fact not. However, my guest co-host this week was in attendance for the biggest party of the summer. Jeff Holtke shares his experiences with ThunderDome.

Listening to the crowd is one of the biggest rules in wrestling. However, it’s been more difficult to do because of COVID-19.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 296: The Interview

People who know me, know that right behind my love for pro wrestling is a love for socks. That love became even more pronounced a few years ago when I discovered a company called Odd Sox.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve weeded out all of my ‘normal’ socks and have nothing but usually designed footwear, including many of the WWE Superstars in the Odd Sox collection. This week on the pod, I chat with Justin Brown, the marketing director at Odd Sox Official. Shop their website here and see for yourself why it’s okay to be odd.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 295: Wrestling with the 80s

Summertime in the 1980s meant one thing for me as a wrestling fan, The Great American Bash. The first incarnation of this legendary event happened 35 years ago this month (July 6, 1985).

I have fond memories reading about these shows and later renting them on VHS from the local video store weeks after they aired on closed-circuit or pay-per-view television. The biggest thing to come out of the GAB is the first-ever War Games match.

The brand is alive and well today with WWE using it over the last couple of weeks on NXT. It makes me happy to relive the nostalgia. But what do you think about the history and the legacy of the Great American Bash?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 294: 2 Is Greater Than 1

*GONG* *GONG* *GONG*

Cue the Undertaker. What an amazing 30-year career he’s had in WWE. I can still remember watching him in World Class and WCW as The Punisher and ‘Mean’ Mark Callous respectively.

Then in 1990 at the Survivor Series, a new character was born. I think it would be hard to argue that the Undertaker is the greatest gimmick/character of all-time in wrestling. His loyalty to Vince McMahon and the fans is nothing short of remarkable.

This week on the podcast, my co-host Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I discuss the Undertaker’s amazing body of work. This is just the tip of the iceberg as I imagine we’ll have more discussions about the Undertaker throughout the next few months on the various My 1-2-3 Cents shows.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 293: Wrestling Without Fans

Full disclosure: I recorded this podcast more than a week ago and just as the sh!t was hitting the fan with allegations against wrestlers, promoters and companies. So you’re not going to hear much about that on this show.

However, my co-host Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network and I discuss the fact that wrestling is still going on today with minimal crowds. What are your thoughts on this ‘new norm’?

Trainwreck. That’s probably the best way to describe 2020 so far. But it’s also the brew I’m drinking this week for Wrestling Under the Influence. The full name is 420 Strain Trainwreck by SweetWater Brewing Company in Atlanta.

Besides tasting the beer, I go on several wrestling-related tangents this week. There’s no specific focus which may or may not be a good thing. For that, I need to hear from YOU!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 290: Let’s Be Positive

Full disclosure for this week’s show. I had two different guests lined up but unfortunately, things fell through at the last minute with each.  So that means I had to call an audible and do something I had planned for later in the month while I’m on vacation.

Almost one year ago, I made a career change and left the world of broadcast news after 22 years. I’ve already done a show with some clips of wrestling interviews I conducted as a news anchor. Today, in an effort to spread some positivity, I’m sharing the Cameo videos my friends sent me after I made the career change.

Instead of hearing me talk about a random topic for 30 or more minutes, I decided to go this route. It’s an ego boost for me for sure. But it’s also positive content to insert into a world that right now is filled with hate and negativity.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 288: Wrestling with the 90s

May 27, 1996 is a day that will live in wrestling infamy. It’s the day Scott Hall, known by fans at the time as Razor Ramon, showed up on WCW Nitro. It was significant because Hall had been with WWF for four years and showing up on the competition’s program and declaring war with them made it look like WWF had sent him.

We’d later learn this was the seed planting fo the nWo and one of the greatest angles in the history of wrestling. My co-host Chad Smart and I dissect the period leading up to Hall’s jump and do some ‘what if’ scenarios along the way.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 284: Wrestling with the 80s

We’re just a couple weeks away from the 35 year anniversary of the very first Saturday Night’s Main Event. The show debuted May 11, 1985, from the Nassau County Coliseum.

So, I’ve turned to Jason Skull of the Skullbuster WrestleCast to take a trip down memory lane and chat more about that first episode. From Hulk Hogan to Roddy Piper to Wendi Richter, the show was stacked.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 283: Wrestling Under the Influence

Pity Party, table for one. That is how this podcast may sound to some. However, that is not my intent. I had big plans for this week’s show since it falls on 4/20. You can read between the lines on who I wanted as my guest…

That being said, my attempts to get Rob Van Dam on the show turned into another failed experiment. So that got my brain churning and I thought, why not review a beer in my fridge called Mad Scientist Milkshake IPA. It’s from the Experimental Series by Witchita Brewing Company. You can visit their website here.

So this week you’ll hear me kinda rant and complain about the guests who I’d always wanted but never got. I also review the beer and share some thoughts on other aspects of pro wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 281: WrestleMania Redo

WrestleMania has been a staple not just in pro wrestling but pop culture for 35 years now. I’m proud to say I was around for the first one and have enjoyed the event each year since 1985. That includes the very unique version of WrestleMania 36, held over two nights and in an empty arena.

However, there are some moments in WrestleMania history that fans like to rewrite. That’s the inspiration for an annual tradition I’ve got going here, called WrestleMania Redo. This week Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton of Stride Pro Wrestling and I talk about a couple of WrestleMania matches that we would rebook.

Let us know what you think of the show and what matches from WrestleManias past you’d rework.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 280: WPW Watch Along

My buddy Chad Smart from the Positive Cyncisism Podcasting Network has introduced me to all sorts of different pro wrestling companies. In 2004 when I met him, he was ordering the weekly TNA pay-per-views. Then came Chikara Pro and now we’re watching a company out of southern California; Wrestling Pro Wrestling.

This is a very unique independent company, to say the least. Characters include the Fromage Horsemen (all characters based off cheeses),  Darwin Finch and ‘Gentleman’ Jervis Cottonbelly. You can check out their YouTube channel here. Pull up the March 5 show; WPW Presents Tony Tickles’ Invasion Featuring the Sneaky Snakes and watch along with us. We also sprinkle in thoughts on other wrestling companies along the way.

‘The British Bulldog’ Davey Boy Smith will go down as one of the all-time greats of professional wrestling. He and Dynamite Kid are still my favorite tag team of all-time. The Bulldog happens to be the all-time favorite of my co-host this week, Bo Sawyer.

Bo and I discuss our fandom for DBS as well as some of Bo’s professional wrestling career. He is the Stride Pro Wrestling No Limits Champion (and defends the title Saturday, March 14 against Dexter Roswell at Strideiversary). He’s also the TSW Heavyweight Champion. Check out Bo’s YouTube Channel by heading here.

Oh, the 80s. What a magical decade. The rise of pro wrestling started then and the world was introduced to WWF Superstars they could hold in their hand. The LJN collection is by far my favorite. So this week, my guest co-host Brian Juvers and I dig deep into the line and share our favorite memories of these figures.

This month Kevin and Tyler continue to look back on All American Pro Wrestling and ahead to this Saturday’s Stride Pro Wrestling show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 261: Wrestling Under the Influence

As a fan who grew up watching pro wrestling in the 80s, one of my favorite pay-per-view events of all-time is the Survivor Series. The original concept has long been scrapped but for the first several years of the event, it was hard to beat.

In 1990 a twist was added. I’m not talking about the Ultimate Survivors match at the end of the night. I’m also not referring to the debut of the Undertaker. Instead, something else that night left a huge impression… the Gobbledy Gooker.

So that’s the subject of this month’s Wrestling Under the Influence. I review that awesomely bad moment in time and pair it with Leinenkugel’s Cranberry-Ginger Shandy.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com. You’ll receive one entry for every $5 donated. I will then use that money to buy figures from Five Below.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns on Saturday, Dec. 7 with the former stars of All American Pro Wrestling for a benefit show for former wrestler Dan ‘Curly’ Summers. It’s at Black Diamond Harley Davidson in Marion and every cent raised that night goes to Curly, who is facing some serious health issues right now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 259: 2 is Greater Than 1

The world of professional wrestling has a variety of memorable characters. One of the most memorable I’ve had the chance to work with is Curly. The man behind the gimmick, which is dedicated to the 3 Stooges is Dan Summers. Unfortunately, Dan is having some major medical issues right now.

That’s where his brothers and sisters in wrestling are stepping in. On Saturday, Dec. 7 Stride Pro Wrestling presents AAPW Ressurection. All American Pro Wrestling was at one time a huge force in southern Illinois and Curly was one of the biggest attractions on the roster.

Now, many stars from AAPW are coming together to wrestle for Stride. The show is happening at the Black Diamond Harley Davidson Warehouse and 100% of the money raised that night will be donated to Curly and his family. Get your tickets here.

Cheers! It’s time for another Wrestling Under the Influence. This month Tom Skull from the Skullbuster Wrestlecast and Tom & Jim’s Top 5 joins me. We drink two different beers, Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA by Stone Brewing Company and Shenangians by Indeed Brewing.

Of course, we center the conversation around Sting and his 1990 nemesis the Black Scorpion. It’s a great conversation as we stroll down memory lane with some good beer.

My 1-2-3 Cents Ep. 257: Wrestling with the 80s

It’s been 30 years since the first Halloween Havoc. WCW came up with the concept and it ended up being a successful formula for the company. Did you know Halloween Havoc had a better rating than Starrcade 6 of the 12 years they were around? One year it was a tie and five times Starrcade rated higher.

This week though, we’re focused on that first year and the build-up to the Thunderdome match between Ric Flair and Sting vs. Terry Funk and the Great Muta.

Positive Cynicism EP. 112: The End is the Beginning

After two years and nine months, the weekly Positive Cynicism podcasts are coming to an end on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network. After a year and a half of having rotating co-hosts, the decision to move the shows to the Positive Cynicism Podcast Network has been made in an attempt to better brand the shows.

Thanks to Greg Mehochko for the opportunity and encouragement to start Positive Cynicism. Thanks to Kevin Hunsperger for letting me guest on numerous episodes of My123Cents.  This is by no means a bitter split, it’s just the next evolution in the podcast landscape.

Greg and I are in talks for a new podcast for Jittery Monkey. Stay tuned for future announcements. For future installments of the Positive Cynicism shows, follow @chadsmart on twitter and stay tuned to www.positivecynicism.com

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 253: Wrestling with the 80s

When it comes to great wrestling families, I put the Von Erichs near the top of the list. I grew up in the 80s when Von Erich Mania was running wild. So did my guest co-host this week, Travis Yates (@thetravisyates on Twitter).

We stroll down memory lane and share our thoughts on this iconic family and throw in a few ‘what if’ style scenarios. It’s a great conversation and tribute to one of our all-time favorite families in wrestling.

Nerds United Episode 150: EPISODE 150, Y’ALL!

This week on the show, Greg and Mike wax nostalgia and talk about olden times, bring back a long-lost segment of the show, and talk about some of the various news and notes making the rounds this week.

And if you make it to the end, the guys run down some of the offerings on the Disney+ streaming app.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 251: What If…Vince Retired?

For nearly 40 years Vincent Kennedy McMahon has been the driving force behind the WWE. Before that, of course, it was the World Wrestling Federation. In recent years though, McMahon has been criticized for his decisions related to the product. So this week we explore ‘What If… Vince Retired?’

My co-host for this month’s installment is Stride Pro Wrestling General Manager Sam Hunter. He’s a lifelong fan of pro wrestling and we share our opinions on today’s product and what we think would happen if Vince McMahon walked away from the company today.

Stride Pro Wrestling is in action this Saturday night (Sept. 14) for a fundraiser called Cashing In. It’s a fundraiser for the YouthBuild program. Get more information here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 250: 2 is Greater Than 1: New Champs

Never in my life did I think I’d have an opportunity to wrestle for a championship. That dream came true last week and my partner and I were successful in our effort.

Yes, Heath Hatton and I are the new Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champions. We beat Tony Flood and Jay Spade at Bash at the Ballpark. However, we defend our belts this Saturday, Sept. 7 at Revenge in Carterville. You can learn more here.

In this week’s episode of Two is Greater than One, Heath and I talk about the night we won the titles, why he decided to go in this direction and wrap things up with the new feature Three for the Road. So, who are your three favorite tag teams? Bonus if the Baby Oil Buddies (that’s us) is on your list. 🙂

We discuss SummerSlam 1988, the first of its kind. Besides the show, we talk about the buildup to it and what was happening with Jim Crockett Promotions at the same time.

Positive Cynicism EP. 105: Too Much Information

The age of the internet has provided easy access to more information than is probably necessary. This is true when it comes to pop culture. @chadsmart and Eric Bennett discuss growing up prior to the internet when you’d find out about a movie by seeing a trailer in the theater a few months before the movie premiered. They compare it to now where a movie gets a release date before a script and fans know everything about the movie prior to the release.

Before getting to the main discussion, Eric gives a wrap up and live thoughts on his experience at San Diego Comic Con 2019.

Midway through the conversation, the conversation hits the tangent highway and road trip through thoughts on Disney’s live action remakes.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 247: What If… Jericho Stayed

This is the first installment of What If… and we’re talking about Chris Jericho. Chad Smart (from Positive Cynicism) and I discuss what if Jericho had stayed in WCW instead of jumping ship in Aug. 1999.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to the Pulaski County Fair on Friday, Aug. 16. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 246: 2 is Greater Than 1

Welcome to the debut of 2 is Greater Than 1, a monthly segment on this podcast. I will be joined on the first Monday of each month by Heath Hatton. The title of the show comes from a line he used during a handicap match against Ryback at Extreme Rules 2012. The two of us are now tag team partners in Stride Pro Wrestling as well.

We have a lot to discuss this month, including the passing of legendary wrestler Harley Race, Stride Pro Wrestling and the upcoming shows for that company.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to Benton on Saturday, Aug. 10 with IWA Productions. We also have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Learn more here.

Positive Cynicism EP. 103: Wonder Why; Len

It’s the last stop on the throwback to 1999 month of Positive Cynicism. Jumping in the time machine, @chadsmart and @MikeDeKalb head to great white north to check out a brother and sister who team up with a hip hop crew. The group known as Len burst onto the scene in the summer/fall of 1999 with the song “Steal My Sunshine.” Before the song was off the charts, Len seemed to vanish into thin air. Where did they go?

Chad and Mike break down the history of Len and try to understand why their career fizzled out so quickly. After the history lesson, Mike gives him impromptu thoughts on the hip hop bands he’d like to see on a package tour.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 245: Aleister Black (and #AskMy123Cents)

I never turn down the chance to do an interview (whether in person or on the phone) with someone involved in pro wrestling. Such is the case with my guest this week, WWE Superstar Aleister Black. He was doing promos for the SummerSlam Heatwave Tour which made a stop in Cape Girardeau, MO. While I had Black on the phone we chatted about his character, his career and life on the road. This week’s episode is also an Ask My 1-2-3 Cents, so thanks for participating.

Positive Cynicism EP. 96: Bingeing and Purging Television

In the age of easily watching episode after episode of a TV show, binge watching has become an almost preferable method of viewing. On this episode of Positive Cynicism, @chadsmart and Eric Bennett discuss their habits with binge watching as well as the effects watching so much TV at once has on their viewing.

Positive Cynicism EP. 95: Sports and Role Models

Why do we as a society value athletes and celebrities as role models? Is this idolization warranted or unjust expectation? On this episode of Positive Cynicism, @chadsmart and @TheTravisYates examine how athletes with discipline or criminal records get rewarded with new contracts. How fans still cheer for athletes despite their off field antics and try to determine if fandom trumps individual actions.

Before getting into the main discussion, the hosts discuss the recent death of baseball player Bill Buckner and if it’s disrespectful to bring up his World Series error as a notable aspect of his career.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 237: Changing Identities

Dean Ambrose is once again Jon Moxley. Goldust is Dustin Rhodes again. This week my co-host Garrett Turner, aka Dexter Roswel, and l talk about our favorite identity changes in pro wrestling. Roswell himself has had some changes in character; actually using two different personalities for Dexter in Stride Pro Wrestling and Cape Championship Wrestling.

Don’t be too worried about the title. I am ranting, but it’s not a full 20 minutes. Basically, I’m fed up with the ‘fake news’ out there concerning wrestling. I share my views on that and more in this week’s episode.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 226: Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania

Since everyone is speculating on who Kurt Angle’s last opponent should be, I figured I’d jump on board too. This week, Dalton Anthony from Pro Wrestling Unscripted joins me as co-host to discuss our favorite choices. We stuck to current WWE/NXT Superstars. I believe we have solid lists. Check it out and let me know who you would have face Angle in his final match.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 225: Greatest Wrestling Returns

It’s a new episode of My 1-2-3 Cents the podcast. This week the new Stride Pro Wrestling Champion Red Daniels joins me as co-host. Since he just returned to the ring after being buried alive in Dec. 2017, I thought it only made sense to share our favorite wrestling returns.

We each share our six favorites (spoiler: mine are mostly old school based). Red also discusses his thoughts on character development and what he’s learned in his three years in the business.

The 2019 Royal Rumble is over as you’re listening to this week’s episode. But I still wanted to take the time to do a Royal Rumble themed show. So welcome to the first ever Royal Rumble Roulette

Nerds United Episode 119: IMDb and the Silver Foxes

This episode is all over the place. But before we get to that, you need to know that this weekend, you can save 20% on your t-shirts at the Jittery Monkey Shop. Get those Nerds United shirts, take a picture, and share them with us.

This week, Mike and Greg talk about Brightburn, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Elizabeth Banks, IMDb, and Mike’s incredibly old sister.

If you need more info than that, you should probably just listen to the show. In fact, you should just listen to the show, period.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 108: The Band is Back Together

Hooch, Hoss, and Jon Damn Johnston are back for the first time in a month and Jon LOVES Nebrasketball. And he doesn’t understand why Husker fans are self-loathing, to the point of self-destructive. It’s not helpful.

This episode, we get live in-game updates and reactions as Jon and Hoss are watching Nebraska vs #6 Michigan State. From outbursts of laughter to yelling at the television, follow along with the boys on the podcast.

The guys also talk about the College Football Playoff championship between Clemson and Alabama. And the notion of paying $165 for a ticket to the AFC Championship intrigues Hoss.

And Jon asks the question on everyone’s mind…does defense still win championships?

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 217: The Gorilla Position

I’ve made a lot of friends over the years thanks to professional wrestling. One of them is Ryan Boman. But he’s not your average wrestling fan. Ryan has created a website called The Gorilla Position and is telling the stories of pro wrestling’s storytellers.

From there Ryan and his team developed Pinned.Biz which works to help market the men and women in the world of pro wrestling. I love the concept of both of his websites and we talk all about the idea behind them both in this week’s podcast.

Ryan also shares some thoughts on the landscape of today’s pro wrestling scene; including the creation of All Elite Wrestling. Plus, he was in Nashville recently covering Impact Wrestling’s Homecoming event. Give it a listen and check him out on social media too (@RyanKBoman & @GWPWeb on Twitter).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 215: The 2018 Centies

The Centy Goes To…

It’s the end of another year and Chad and Kevin are back with the annual Centy Awards. The categories were trimmed down a bit compared to previous years, but the discussion is a meaningful one. Let us know how you will look back on the world of pro wrestling in 2018.

On a separate note, I’d like to thank all of you who have taken time to listen to the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast, read the blog or watch videos on YouTube and Facebook. It means the world to me. I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2019 and look for more announcements soon!

Nerds United Episode 117: Podception – Jamie Farr in a Hat

So – new editor here on WordPress. I’m nothing if not stuck in my ways, so obviously I hate it. Much like every new layout of Facebook that gets rolled out, it will just take some getting used to. Hopefully it doesn’t take long to figure it out.

In this episode, I do a run-in on the ABCD-Bags Podcast.

via GIPHY

This conversation starts with comic books like Y: The Last Man and its upcoming TV adaptation as well as various titles from Valiant Comics. Then we talk about the Mandela Effect, Curious George, and Berenstain Bears.

We talk about popcorn and peanut butter, Nebraska athletics, beer, and Jamie Farr. It’s a gem of a podcast, with special shout outs to Mike’s mom (because she won’t listen). Don’t forget to do some shopping at jitterymonkey.com/shop because this podcast doesn’t pay for itself…and it’d be really nice if it did.

POSITIVE CYNICISM EP. 72: WRESTLING WITH NOSTALGIA

It’s a Christmas miracle. Continuing the @JitteryMonkey holiday crossover event, @kevinhunsperger joins @chadsmart to continue the Positive Cynicism month of nostalgia to discuss how and why they’re fans of professional wrestling. Starting with their earliest memories of wrestling and going through their thoughts on the current state of wrestling, Kevin and Chad touch on favorite moments from the last thirty years as well as things they would like to see change. Along the way the discussion delves into a meeting of the Becky Lynch mutual appreciation society.

Be sure to check out the rest of the shows on the Jittery Monkey podcasting network.

My 1-2-3 Cents Wrestling Under the Influence

4 Elf Winter Warmer Spiced Ale.

Tis the season for drinking, so Chad Smart (host of Positive Cynicism) and I busted open 4 Elf Winter Warmer Spiced Ale by Dark Horse Brewery. While enjoying this festive beer we chat about Christmas gimmicks, movies and angles related to the world of pro wrestling.

Warrior-Santa
Warrior vs. Santa

One story we share is the Ultimate Warrior Christmas comic. You can check it out here and decide for yourself if Warrior “humbled” Santa Claus…

Nerds United Episode 116: Very Special Christmas Special 2018

Well, we’re finally here. The weekend before Christmas. And if you’re like me, you are nowhere near ready for the holiday. From decorating to wrapping, yeah – it’s another year of being behind the Eight Ball.

In this episode, Mike and I are joined by our very special guest, Mike’s son Nolan. Nolan brings a youthful perspective that we have long outgrown. But this kid is sharp and quick-witted and not afraid to lay in a few zingers from time to time. And what he did after we finished recording – well, I can’t even explain it.

So enjoy the show. Enjoy your holiday season. and Merry Christmas!

Five Heart Podcast Episode 106: Early Signing Day Recap

After giving Jon a couple weeks off so he could take photos at the regional and national volleyball tournaments, Fearless Leader is back with Hoss and Hooch, and he brought along Corn Nation’s recruiting correspondent, Rick Cone. We recorded the evening of College Football’s Early Signing Day, and the Husker fax machine was busy!

Who’s N? Who’s still on the fence? Who were the big “gets” of the day, as Scott Frost and Co. concluded their first full year of recruiting?

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Husker Women’s Volleyball team and their outstanding showing in what was supposed to be a “rebuilding year.” Looking forward to even more good things from them in the years to come.

POSITIVE CYNICISM EPISODE 71: QUESTION EVERYTHING – ROB KUGLER

Hey there. Greg Mehochko here. I’m taking over Positive Cynicism for one episode. RELAX! Chad Smart and Mike “The Hockey Transplant” DeKalb will be back next time for their WONDER WHY series.

This is a return of Question Everything. Meet Rob Kugler. He’s been a longtime friend of mine. He has done a lot in his life, from serving in the military to trying his hand at acting to taking his beautiful three-legged chocolate lab on a once-in-a-lifetime, coast-to-coast trip over her final months. A happy dog, afflicted by cancer, who had a leg removed.

We talk about Rob and his military background, love and loss, his trip with Bella, and writing the book that tries to capture everything.

I pre-ordered my copy of the book back in November. I followed Rob and Bella’s trip all along, and I encourage you to check out Rob’s Instagram for some really uplifting pictures, stories, and smiles. Listen to the podcast and if you want more of this tremendous story, I highly encourage you to buy the book!

Thanks for listening. This is at times an emotional story. But it’s also inspirational.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 213: SuperClash III

Buck & a Quarter Podcast

SuperClash III went down 30 years ago. This week a special guest joins me for some analysis on the AWA’s only pay per view event. Bob Schulte (@BobWicked38 on Twitter) is a lifelong wrestling fan and grew up in Minnesota. He shares some insight on the AWA as we breakdown SuperClash III.

Nerds United Episode 115: Friday Night Thoughts on Aquaman and Marvel

Hey there! Happy Friday night/Saturday morning. Greg and Mike got together and spent a little time on Facebook as well as some audio-only content. We cover Aquaman and the DC Cinematic Universe, as well as the DC CW crossover event this past week titled Elseworlds.

Also, since we last got together, Marvel released trailers for Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame.

Plus we have a special treat from Greg’s early terrestrial radio days, and lots of love for Tom and Jim’s Top 5.

Don’t forget to get your shirts and merch from the shop! Your support is greatly appreciated, and if you did order a shirt, share your merch on social media so we can give you props!

Five Heart Podcast Episode 105: Husker Volleyball Seeking Back-to-Back Titles

Well, we’re not talking Nebrasketball today. But Corn Nation’s Volleyball Guru Ty Peteranetz and I have lots of volleyball talk to get you geared up for tonight’s National Semifinal Volleyball match.

After sweeping their way to the National Final Four, defeating Kentucky and Oregon on the way, the Huskers return to Minneapolis for the second consecutive week, and take on another Big Ten team in the semifinal, facing off against Illinois for the third time of the year.

Ty will be in Minneapolis for as long as the Huskers are there. We wish him safe travels and a long weekend.

Five Heart Podcast Episode 104: Husker Football Moving Forward

In what will probably the first of two episodes this week on the Five Heart Podcast, Hoss and Hooch talk about some of the players departing from the Husker football program and who we (okay, really, it’s Hoss) think will step up in the future to take those spots.

The list goes like this:

  • Interior Offensive Linemen
  • Bryce Benhart at Right Tackle
  • Replacing Devine Ozigbo
  • Replacing Stanley Morgan Jr
  • Defensive Front Seven
  • Inside Linebackers
  • Pass Rush
  • Dynamic defensive Schemes/Calls.

We also talk about the progression of Adrian Martinez, and perhaps what we can expect from him in the future.

Also discussed, a tease about conversations later this week regarding Nebraska basketball and volleyball.
