I'm constantly listening to the PWTorch Livecast and the PWTorch VIP audio shows.

Monday Livecast is Bruce Mitchell and Travis Bryant hosting. They have an okay chemistry, the only problem with this show is that whatever discussion they have is made obsolete by Raw afterwards, so it's something you'd have to listen to live.

Tuesday Livecast is Wade Keller and Jason Powell. This is the must-listen to show of the week, as they have good discussions and get to react to Raw.

Wednesday Livecast is Pat McNeil and special guests. These episodes are usually pretty awkward as McNeil isn't a great interviewer and often seems disinterested.

Thursday Livecast is James Caldwell and usually Greg Parks. They're likable personalities but their analysis tends to be fairly generic.

Friday Livecast is a Wade Keller interview. These are usually great.

I hate how many commercials are in Jericho's podcast. And it's not just Jericho reading off ads, it's actual commercials!

I don't mind Austin's as much because Austin reading the copy for a Cougar Dating site or consolidating student loans is hilarious.

Both shows are pretty commercial heavy. I just can't stand the dozen minutes or so of Jericho banter at the start of the show when he's talking about tv shows he's watching and giving out just wrong information.

Jericho's pretty bad at casual banter. He just can't get out of "rock frontman" or promo mode. I imagine he'd be mildly annoying to talk to if I were sober.

I can't believe I haven't lamely thrown in a plug for the very, irregularly done podast I do with my friends. This is our last episode, the Best of 2013 show from early January. One before that was in like May or June. Yikes.

Jericho's "comedy" bit with Oates' Mustache a few weeks ago was some of the worst stuff I've ever heard.  If he didn't have some really interesting guests on after that, I probably would have deleted it from my feed.

With that being said, the interviews with Chavo, Edge & Austin were great.  The one with Bret was good, but the audio was pretty shitty.

I just subscribed to the PBTN podcast. Why are all these things so damn long? They're all two and a half-three hours, which even if it's really, really good is too much of a slog. They have some interesting/unique ideas but cut that shit down...

Kane was on Ron Paul's youtube videocast

I'm curious about it, but you have to subscribe to Ron Paul's youtube channel to see it.  No thanks.

Kane...I mean Glenn was on a Libertarian podcast a while back called Lions of Liberty.

http://lionsofliberty.com/podcast/

I wanted to listen to this and the process of downloading it as an MP3 v streaming is totally convoluted and not user friendly, but I figured it out.  Interesting looking website though, a lot of those podcast topics interest me

Boy, would you hate The Tony Kornheiser Show...

The only wrestling-related podcasts I listen to on anything resembling a regular basis are Colt's and the WOW one from Ringbelles and, in both cases, only when the guest is someone I've heard of. I really enjoyed Colt's last two (after being really disappointed by the Ambrose one) with Sharpe and Quackenbush. But, I have to say... I respect and admire what Quack is doing with Chikara, but that shit sounds way too avant-garde for me. I can't imagine enjoying a promotion that was running shows like that.

It really isn't that avant-garde. You just can't go in there expecting 5 star "work rate" or traditional wrestling. I love Chikara but have been following it only casually for the past 6 or 7 years. You don't need to know every little detail or watch every show to get the gist of their storylines. Quack made every Chikara fan sound like a diehard interactive never miss a show type during that interview, but it's really easy to just watch here and there and enjoy it for what it is. It's just fun in my opinion.

You don't consider the notion of secret shows and scavenger hunts and paid actors pretending to be security officers for a non-existent corporation, going to fans' houses, to be too high-concept for professional wrestling? That sounds like something Sascha Baron Cohen would do.

To me, that's all a minimal part of it.

They did all of that during the 8 or 9 months Chikara was "shut down" but a very small group of people actually followed any of that or knew it was even going on. You don't have to take part or follow all of that to enjoy or understand Chikara. That group of super hardcore dedicated Chikara fans does not represent the majority of fans who attend those shows. It's not what Quack would like people to believe, but I'd bet most people who follow Chikara to some degree don't dig too deep.

I consider myself to be a Chikara fan and didn't even know about the scavenger hunt until the interview. Definitely dig Quack's approach to wrestling, but he sells the idea way bigger than it is, understandably to create buzz. And it's been working for them in recent weeks. I'm looking forward to be at the return show.

His first interview with Colt a few years ago is also pretty good. Talks a lot about the independent wrestling scene in the 90's.

Colt's new interview with Sonjay Dutt isn't bad either, but Colt comes across so ignorant and self centered in a bunch of these.

I feel like Stone Cold's podcast is getting worse than it was when it started. He's way overplaying the "Working man" shit lately and his southern accent has gotten ridiculous in the last few.

Good interview.  I didn't know that Joey Styles & Don Callis were going to be the commentary team for the Fusient owned WCW.  It makes me think that Bischoff probably wanted to pick best parts of the ECW carcass for the new WCW.

Regal was on Austin's latest show. He mentioned liking Savage/Steamboat at Mania 3 but his feelings changed on it after talking about the match with Steamboat. Austin understood and cut the story off there. Anyone know what that is all about?

I didn't know until a while back, but Austin has two shows. Just one called The Steve Austin show, which is PG-13ish. And the Unleashed show. I didn't know about the friendlier show until recently.

I think it was the fact that Savage made Steamboat walk through the match a whole bunch of times before Mania.

Has anyone listened to Garcia on the Austin show? I feel like that's one that could be super interesting, or she could just bore me with her personal story.

JR's podcast so far has been spotty. It's a slam dunk when you have Austin on for your first two, but it doesn't seem to flow that great yet. And his volume at the beginning is a bit much "HEY, EVERYBODY! IT'S GOOD 'OL JR!" And in the first two before shooting to his sponsors he spends a minute or so telling you how great they are... But he would send to a sponsor, and then it would come right back to him. There was no mid-show ad

The Garcia one was super interesting since she talks about getting Montezuma's Revenge the day before her debut and how she wrote cue cards for the show (since she knew nothing of the product) and was told 20 minutes before the show she can't use them.  Plus, she and Austin have a tremendous rapport.

Yeah, they talk about it, albeit in sort of veiled terms.

Also a good story about John Cena threatening to break Bennett's fingers after Cena mistakenly thought Bennett did the "U Can't See Me" during a Sunday Night Heat match Bennett did with Cryme Time in the mid '00s.

I'm a new regular watcher of ROH but I think Bennett would be accepted fine by the IWC if he were a WWE midcarder but he just seems like an odd, odd choice for ROH main eventer.

That's why he gets the X-Pac heat in ROH, for the most part. He works a WWE style and doesn't have the charisma or grasp of psychology to really pull it off, so he may stand out in ROH but it's for the wrong reasons.

Is he really a ROH main eventer though? The guy was featured prominently at first, but he's pretty much always been a midcard guy with an occasional upper midcard angle. His detractors really exaggerate his spot on the card.

I still don't get why Steve Austin has a PG-13 rated pocast and a slightly more adult podcast. Are there really kids out there that want to listen to a "Stone Cold" Steve Austin podcast? If so, I guess I have a little more hope for the young generation!

I don't mind it. The only thing that annoyed me was that I didn't know about it sooner. He never talked about the friendly show until they were 20 episodes or so in.

RVD on Jericho was pretty damn good until he got into legalizing pot talk. Then goddamn, it got boring.

Austin's interview of The Big Show interview is pretty good even though Show puts himself over a little too hard. The story about Austin telling Vince he wasn't jobbing to Big Show right in front of his face was epic.

Anyone else listening to The Jim Cornette experience? It is hit or miss with me but the eps with Starmaker Kenny Bolin are hilarious.

So when he talked about being a wrestling fan and getting into the business, I thought that was cool. Then it went into concussions and I was like zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Fun fact I didn't know, Nowinski actually trained at the WCW Power Plant for a day.

Did anyone else know that Renee Young has a "History of WM" podcast on podcastone?

I just discovered this, listened to the first episode with Shawn Michaels, and it's pretty great.  Surprised WWE hasn't promoted it on tv yet that I've seen

The other eps are Edge, Cody & Dustin, Bret, Foley and Piper.  Great lineup of guests and she's a really easy going and informed host in the HBK one, just like she is in all her WWE backstage stuff.  Very high hopes for this show
