Long time no post for me here, but I thought I'd announce the recent launch of the Puro Pourri Podcast, in which myself and my friends George and David delve into a thematic look at pro wrestling in Japan. Our approach is a combination of serious discussion and complete irreverence and we are hoping that the show will be something of an alternative to the numerous podcasts out there that focus mainly on up to the minute reviews of modern puro in all its forms.
We'll be tackling different themes in a series of episodes which will form what I suppose you could term volumes. So far we've recorded 7 episodes, three of which will be up on Soundcloud by the end of today. We've also submitted it for Itunes approval.
The first three episodes act as an introduction to each of us as hosts and our fandom, with each of us going into detail about the first puro matches we ever saw and rewatching them afresh,
The forthcoming volume will cover invasion angles in Japanese wrestling, with particular reference to the New Japan vs UWFi feud: what it symbolized, how it played out and how influential it has been.
Expect obscure references to English lower division football and pop culture wherever necessary, alongside our more analytical discussions.
Episode 1+2 are available now at Soundcloud, with episode 3 following later today:
You can find us on Twitter @puropodcast and on facebook @puropourri. We'll be using this thread to publicize all future episodes. All feedback and support is of course more than welcome.
