Fantasy grapple fans rejoice as Jeff the Professor (@EminentProf) and J Onwuka (@thenearzone) get back on track with the wrestling conversion of the Lord of the Rings film series. As noted in the previous episode, these two chronic ramblers do their best to focus a little and end up having an interesting discussion about making a high fantasy epic work within the structure of pro wrestling, how journeys in stories signify more than just travel, and what exactly a wrestling title means... or is it just a shiny gold prop? Plus, the debut of Aragorn J Styles's new finisher, Anduril! But who's the Elrond that shows it to him? Listen to find out!

Hello genre-mix fans, Obi J (@thenearzone) and Jeff the Professor (@EminentProf) are back again with another atypical episode of this atypical podcast. The Return of the King material is pushed back to next time but there is a cast rundown at the end of the episode, just to prep for the real Return. Why's the change? Well a bit of rethinking has gone on as regards to how the podcast will go forwards and that's the main subject of the show, so if you're interested in a bit of 'theory talk' about storytelling and pro wrestling this is the one for you. Plus Jeff goes into his work with the DSA's brakelight campaign in New Orleans and we talk Mae Young Classic. Dig in!
