My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 336: The Interview

Custom wrestling figures have become a big-time hobby and, in some cases, business for fans. My friend Dan Turnquist, aka Red Daniels,  has a lot of talent in creating replica belts for action figures. He talks all about the process with me on this week’s episode. You can see his work on his Instagram page. Click here for that info. Or on his Facebook page.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 312: Let’s Give Back

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a rough ride for most of us. That includes the pro wrestling world. However, we can make it a bit brighter. This week’s podcast is all about the My 1-2-3 Cents/Stride Pro Wrestling Action Figure Drive.

If you want to help, you can send a new, unwrapped wrestling-related toy to 201 E Main St. Suite 3C, Carbondale, IL 62901 (c/o Kevin Hunsperger).  If you’d rather not pay for shipping, you can Venmo or Paypal me, and I’ll be going to Five Below and picking up figures there.

All donations are going to the Toys for Tots program in Carbondale, Illinois. They distribute to five counties here, and hundreds of kids could benefit from your generosity.  Let’s get 250 wrestling figures in the hands of children in southern Illinois!

Each donation made will automatically get you entered into a raffle for a My 1-2-3 Cents prize pack. Thank you all for your kindness. If you can’t donate, simply sharing the details about the drive will help as well!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 297: Go Figure!

It’s an exciting time to be a wrestling action figure collector. Even as I write this, announcements are being made about new figures being released for both WWE and AEW.

This week on the podcast, I’m joined by Red Daniels of Stride Pro Wrestling. He’s got his hands on the Chris Jericho ‘Little Bit of the Bubbly’ figure (early release through Ringside Collectibles).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 142: Dalton Anthony & Asa Gray

A few months ago I started listening to a couple of new podcasts that are part of Podzilla 1985. Pro Wrestling Unscripted, Mr. 100 & the 5 Star Man and Podzilla After Dark are the three I listen to regularly. There’s a fourth show called Nerd Up that I check out from time to time too. The show originates from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, my old stomping grounds and the hosts talk about everything from wrestling to movies to current events; things that interest me.

The Podzilla gang is very supportive of Stride Pro Wrestling and I’ve met Dalton Anthony and Asa Gray at some of our shows. When I heard their recent discussion on the new line of WWE action figures that were announced at San Diego Comic Con, I knew he was the right guy to ask questions to.

So I invited Dalton on and it made sense to do the interview in person because they were coming to the most recent Stride show. So he and I (and Asa briefly) discuss all things wrestling. We talk action figures, but also Cape Championship Wrestling (they’re part of the announce team there) as well as their shows. It’s a fun interview, check it out and support Podzilla 1985, CCW and of course Stride Pro Wrestling.

It is finally here! Comics for Beginners is no joke – but there are jokes inside…laughter…tears, and whining from my dog Lucky.

And we have winners and giveaways. My wife did the drawing out of my Green Lantern hat. IT’S A REAL THING! And I explain the mess on the hat in the episode.
