Hey y'all. Brennan (VOW, Burning Spirits) and Andy of VOW (Glory Pro, Over The Hill) have started a new podcast based on their friendship and desire to watch and revisit a bunch of old ShootStyle matches. 
 
This is our debut episode, and I think it turned out pretty decent. Take a look if you're interested in this style, or dope ass Japanese music.

FNF #001: Slappy Kaki
 

Andy and Brennan introduce the first episode of Fighting Network FRIENDS, talking all things Shoot Style Wrestling and Masahito Kakihara.

 
Topics discussed:
- Our backgrounds and familiarity with Japanese shoot-style wrestling of the 1980's and 90's. 
- "Would a USA-based shoot-style promotion work today? And who would you book for such a promotion?"
- CITY POP
- BJW / Masahito Kakihara Produce: KakiRide (8/14/17), including cigar- smoking Fujiwara, Tatsuo Nakano's mullet, the ongoing saga of Hideki Suzuki's fatherly love and destruction of Takuya Nomura and Minoru Suzuki as the best character on the planet.
- Deep Dive into the losing efforts of the terribly underrated Masahito Kakihara:
vs. Tatsuo Nakano (9/21/92) **BLOODBATH**
w/ Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Gene Lydick & Steve Nelson (6/10/94)
w/ Nobuhiko Takada vs. Yoshiaki Fujiwara & Tatsumi Fujinami (6/26/96)

Huge recommendation for this podcast. It mixes in good chemistry between the hosts, a working knowledge but also advancement for discovery and neat production values with the Jpop that was inserted as interludes. I watched the Nakano blood bath for the first time and that match was awesome.

I'm a big shootstyle fan, I'll definitely give this a listen when I have some time and give some feedback.

I just wanted to say I really don't know much about shoot style, but I really enjoyed the first 2 episodes of your podcast. I don't know why, but I find it easy to listen to even if I am not familiar with a lot of the guys you talk about.

Hey I've only heard the first pair of these but wanted to let you guys know that this show is genuinely fucking good and unique. I mean, it's not that unique I guess, but it feels incredibly different from pretty much any other wrestling podcast out there. You two are clearly close and seem very comfortable in casual conversation, but the show is always on point and never wanders. I almost wish it did wander to be honest, I'd enjoy listening to the two of you discuss more non-wrestling stuff from time to time. Love the J-pop interludes too, really gives the show a tone that is playful and fun. Can't sing the praises loud enough. Obviously you're covering a very specific niche, but it works so well. Looking forward to catching up.

Why can't the newest episodes be downloaded off the webpage at the link given like older ones?

 

I enjoy checking the show out but I'm usually out of the house so I download them and put them on my phone to listen to offline. I don't use itunes or any podcast services either so I have no idea how to download the episodes when they come out and always have to stay one episode behind.

You should definitely be able to still download the episodes. I can on my end, both mobile and on my laptop.

 

The page looks a little different because it embeds "related" episodes on the webpage for each episode, but scroll to the bottom of the episode page (or even just the main page which will have the latest epiosode) and there should be a download link there.

 

Here is the direct link to episode 5: https://tracking.pod...t]=episode_list
