What podcasts/online radio shows do you follow?
 
There are a bunch out there list the ones you regularly listen to. These have made being a wrestling fan really fun in a new way. Like real sports.

I am a subscriber at f4wonline basically just for their podcasts and radio shows, I listen to them all for the most part. I always catch Austin's two shows and Jericho's if the guest is wrestling related or of interest to me. I don't too often listen to the solo Austin shows or the segments with his wife, those have run their course for me. I do pretty much every episode of The Ross Report. My new favorite is Taz. He has a radio show every day which is great, his producer Seth is great, and he's just really good on radio. And he has a podcast, I don't know if he is gonna keep doing both, that's a lot of talking but, I try to go through them all...

I cannot stand The Jim Cornette Experience, it's so fucking bad. He's a psycho and I just don't like it. I also didn't like Piper's podcast because it was sloppy as hell and just totally disjointed. Chael Sonnen's podcast really fail for me too, too much of him is not a good thing.

For me I really enjoy Taz and Jericho the most.

Austin and Jericho pretty regularly. JR if he has a good guest. F4W/WO usually after a PPV just hear them review it/get their take.

Noid 04-03-2015 12:23 AM

I've been listening to lots of Jim Cornette recently. I've decided I love him.

Noid 04-03-2015 12:23 AM

Your gif is awesome, Fragile.

Bad News Gertner 04-03-2015 12:27 AM

Alice Radley makes the Jim Cornette podcast unlistenable, although I love me some Starmaker Bolin.

I'll listen to JR's, Jericho's and Stone Cold if they have guest that I want to hear. Can't wait to hear Superstar Graham on Ross's next week.

Fragile X 04-03-2015 12:42 AM

Give Taz a shot, it's great stuff.

Schlomey 04-03-2015 12:51 AM

Anyone given Pipers Pit a listen?

Bad News Gertner 04-03-2015 01:02 AM

Lol it's so bad

Poit 04-03-2015 01:19 AM

Game Buoy
Qoopa Klub

Poit 04-03-2015 01:42 AM

Oh, I thought this thread was in casual. I guess I shouldn't have posted all those non-wrestling podcasts.

Noid 04-03-2015 01:44 AM

Alice Radley was jarring at first, but I've gotten used to her and find her kind of infectious now. I'll listen to JR's when I'm interested in the guest too.

Noid 04-03-2015 01:44 AM

Starmaker Bolin is great.

Bad News Gertner 04-03-2015 02:19 AM

Lol follow him on facebook

SlickyTrickyDamon 04-03-2015 06:49 AM

Gotten into PWTorchlive cast for WrestleMania season.

Occasionally listen to Austin or JR.

XL 04-03-2015 07:23 AM

I regularly listen to JR, Austin, Jericho, and Cabana, as well as our own TLP, and Square Circled Gazette.

Tend to skip the non-wrestling guests on Austin/Jericho, skip the shows without guests for Austin too. Sometimes takes me a while to get around to listening to some of Cabana's stuff depending on the guest.

Usually listen on the way to/from work.

MoFo 04-03-2015 07:35 AM

Love Jericho.

Hate Austin's podcasts b/c he has guests phone in on shitty lines half the time and I cant undersAnd.

hb2k 04-03-2015 10:18 AM

Austin is the best podcast host, but I think he's been struggling for great guests of late, his best shows are always his contemporaries that he can shoot the shit with and recount old tales, or shows he has with Meltzer as those two blend together so well.

Any Meltzer show on F4W. As a darkhose there is a YouTube page called "TheFDHLounge" that has done history of Mania and Summerslam anthologies that are awesome, and are currently reviewing every Royal Rumble ever, and there's worth checking out.

Innovator 04-03-2015 11:02 AM

-TALKING SHOP BUDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY
-Occasionally check out Gallows's other podcast on podcast one

Noid 04-03-2015 11:07 AM

I've been meaning to check out the podcasts the guys here do too, since I've heard tremendous things from you guys. No disrespect, hb2k, Poit and co., but I just didn't do the whole podcast thing until recently.

Noid 04-03-2015 11:10 AM

By the way, is it weird to anyone else that Dave Meltzer does these podcasts with Stone Cold Steve Austin and the like? Just in the sense that he's the ultimate outsider with the inside scoop and then you've got the highest grossing star professional wrestling has ever had having a good ol' chat like they're best buddies. Meltzer tries to do a reputable job and has a lot of love and respect for the business and all, but it's surreal to think of how technology has just brought these two worlds together.

SNLfunnyguy 04-03-2015 11:30 AM

Taz has been surprisingly good. Loved the RVD episode.

Austin when he has a wrestling guest on. Can't be doing with the hunting stuff at all.

Bad News Gertner 04-03-2015 11:38 AM

Kenny Starmaker Bolin has a podcast. It's pretty funny, but I have to recommend everyone download the episode where he has Jim Cornette on. It's the funniest hour I've ever heard on a podcast. They just make fun of each other for an hour and I was literally in tears.

It's called " The Bolin Alley."

I'm going to check that out. :y:

Noid 04-03-2015 11:50 AM

I've become a bit of a mark for Jim Cornette. A lot of what I had heard about him was that he was "too old school," but listening to him speak, he really just loves professional wrestling and despises sports entertainment. I really think that if he were booking a company that didn't piss on his leg, he could put forward some pretty good, simplistic storylines. The kind we are digging in NXT.

Also, going back and watching some of his stuff as a manager. The dude could fucking talk. I watched The Great American Bash '89, and he's basically playing a face character feuding with Paul Heyman, despite being a heel for almost the entirety of his career. He and Heyman cut these promos on each other that are the sort of thing that make you wish they were 6'5, 260lbs wrestling marvels themselves, because you wanted to see that pay-off. He and Heyman are two guys that can make money with their mouths. As a performer, the dude just "gets it." It's no wonder he was chosen to head up developmental when they brought OVW under their umbrella.

In a dream world, Jim Cornette managing someone against Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman is money waiting to be printed.

hb2k 04-03-2015 12:26 PM

Cornette is awesome. Seeing his spoken word tour in Birmingham last year re-emphasised my absolute love of James E.

I recommend his promos on Bill Watts in 1984 when the Midnights go to Mid-South for a tour de force in how to be an obnoxious prick.

One of my all time favourite Cornette lines is from Smoky Mountain when the Heavenly Bodies attacked Robert Gibson's father which went:

Cornette: "And then I walked right up to him and knocked his lights out"
Tom Pritchard: "Wait, that was me"
Cornette: "Oh yeh that's right, I kicked him when he was down."

Fragile X 04-03-2015 04:08 PM

I can listen to Cornette talk about wrestling... for about a minute. To be blunt, Jim is a HATER. I've tried his podcast on three episodes, after barely getting through his extremely righteous thoughts on politics and social issues, you finally get to hear him eviscerate whatever topic he decides to ramble on about. And the shows are never current.

Now I'm also a little down on Jim Ross. Especially when he's in one his moods where he is going to try and be "funny" and bust some balls. His jokes come off really poorly and verge on inappropriate at times. He was on Taz's show digging for a laugh and decided to poke at John Gaburick saying the reason he hired Awesome Kong was because she was nearly as round as he was. Taz and Seth were silent for a moment, and then moved on. He is kind of a dick.

Fragile X 04-03-2015 04:11 PM

Now a lot of people on the board at f4wonline seem to HAAAATE Jericho lately. I really think he is the best at talking to his guests and asking questions that the fans (or me) want asked. His most recent show had a fantastic burial of the fans at the Hall of Fame ceremony this year for being total dickheads during the show. Go listen just to hear his rising anger, it was kind of increadible.

Emperor Smeat 04-03-2015 04:55 PM

Mostly just TLP with the occasional Stone Cold and Jericho podcast episodes.

Fragile X 04-03-2015 05:46 PM

Torch subscribers, why did you go there over Wrestling Observer? Just curious.

I'm much more partial to The Observer because they also cover MMA, are more mainstream, and seem to have more connections, plus its Meltzer, though I really like Bryan Alvarez a lot too, especially on audio.

I'm not a subscriber but I do listen to the Torch's podcasts. I could care less about MMA and I dislike Dave Meltzer for naming Gorilla Monsoon the worst announcer for many years. He is dead to me.

Star-rating is dumb and he jerks off too much Japanese stars in them.

Fragile X 04-03-2015 06:01 PM

I can see why you'd think that way. But the stars are never really mentioned beyond the observer articles and never really discussed.

Meltzet and his subscribers were very pro-JCP.

What's this?

Bad News Gertner 04-03-2015 08:53 PM

It's a show on MLW radio. They have sone great podcasts with Court Bauer and Kevin Sullivan

Noid 04-03-2015 09:03 PM

I do enjoy listening to Court Bauer. I'm not a subscriber, so I cannot listen to Kevin Sullivan's. Is it worth it?
