Episode 322/Chikara Eye to Eye

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

We're back and we're on the doorstep of the promised land.  We're not sure how we got here!  We're not sure if we belong!  But we'll TRY to talk another show in the BDK era of Chikara including the US debut of Manami Toyota against Daizee Haze.


Episode 308/Chikara Whatever Happened Happened

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Reflections on Power Struggle and asking the important questions like:

-Why are there so many pro wrestling cops?

-Why was KimberLee so conflicted?

-Why didn't Mantis get a bigger moment?


All this and more on this week's edition of the show!


288 / Chikara Sordid Perils of Everyday Existence

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Apologies for the delay - Ed had taken ill which delayed recording.

Chikara's 2007 show that sparked a huge season long storyline is this week's show.

Ed and Neil talk good wrestling and the ridiculous absurdity that appeared on the show...and no, it isn't what you're probably thinking given that it is Chikara.

All this and more on this week's broadcast!


Are we sounding better with the audio changes we've made? Let us know!

Monday, March 20th, 2017

It is the CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS! Repetition of moves CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS and lots of faction warfare CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS along with a serious Swamp Monster CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS among other CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS things.



Episode 261/Chikara Revelation X

Monday, November 14th, 2016

You say you want a revelation, well you know we all want to change the world.  Or have a ladder match.  Or an awesome tag title match.  One of those things.



Episode 249/Chikara Joshimania Night 1

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

We return to Chikara as our wonky audio issues return as well. It's an interesting show with some interesting ideas that are executed in an interesting fashion.  New things are tried and old feuds are revisited.  Fun times!


Episode 235/Chikara Son of the International Invasion of the International Invaders Stage 1

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Walking out the door to Payback and we take a look back at Chikara during a much simpler time. A show that looks so interesting on paper provides such...whiny results.


Episode 200a- Chris Hero vs. Eddie Kingston

Monday, June 1st, 2015

We're back with a milestone and over the next two episodes we'll be talking a pair of feuds.  This week Ed leads us on a tour of the 2000s indy scene centered around the training travails that led to a blood feud between Eddie Kingston and Chris Hero.  With murky reasons the hate flows freely and we cross the US watching two men punch, elbow and headbutt each other into oblivion all in the name of proving their superiority.  A great time for everyone!

Thank you to everyone who's listened over the course of the last 200 episodes.  It really has been a blast.

Episode 186- Wrestling is Respect Quest to be the Best

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

A lengthy title for a compact show where 8 men go to war to be the best.  At wrestling.  Probably.  


Episode 163/Chikara The Cibernetico Returneth

Monday, August 25th, 2014

A day late and $9.99 but we're back and talking the RETURN of the Cibernetico.  100 minutes of a match and a show about half that length.
