Rich and Runz share a special episode, interviewing Colt Cabana.
The three start off talking about the Chicago Cub’s World Series victory before they talk about Colt’s new project, the Wrestling Road Diaries 3, a documentary that dissects the world of comedic wrestling, as well as his life in professional wrestling.
Colt talks about his love of the absurd and how that has shaped the places that he has traveled to and the diverse groups that he has wrestled in front of, touching on the recent change in persona in Ring of Honor, where he has taken on a more serious approach.
He also shares about how he became a pioneer in the world of long form wrestling podcasts, as well as his most recent guest, Santino Marella and the guest who got away.
Recorded while he sat in his studio…apartment, Colt shares about his rewarding time as a teacher’s assistant as he packs up his latest labor of love, which ships November 6th and is available for digital download at his website November 11th.
