Always liked Callis, he always comes across well. Should be a fun interview.

The Christianity rant really was offputting this week.  I guess I've never heard someone so zealously argue that Noah's Ark didn't exist and that the whole Bible is a work of fiction.  I mean I knew there were people that believe that but I've never been exposed to someone so passionate about arguing it and thinking anyone who believes it is a complete moron & trying to force their views on others.  I don't know what Jim & Alice's views on how they think the Earth got created, etc. is but any other explanation is MUCH more preposterous and astronimically impossible than the truth they perceive to be so preposterous.  Someone needs to send them "The Case for Christ" to get their minds really going although I fear how much the show would devolve if they started digging in further.

I realize Cornette is the one who opened the can of worms on this topic and I respect you putting your opinion out there, but we should probably refrain from discussing the merits of Cornette's religious and political opinions in this thread just to keep this conversation from going somewhere that has nothing to do with pro wrestling. Hope everyone understands.

I agree with Loss. You can absolutely shit on the idea that Cornette is using his show as a pulpit for his religious and political beliefs. What we don't want is this thread devolving into arguments about his political and religious beliefs. 

With all that said, I enjoyed his discussion with Cyrus. I had no idea he had a rep as a good worker. 

 

EDIT: Also, don't respond to Tim's points about the merit of his argument. I will delete your post and you will be wasting your time.

Callis was really good in the ring in Winnipeg on Tony Condello's shows. Definitely could have done more if used right.

Anyone subscribing to the MLW-VIP?  Wondering how long the drive-by shows usually are.

The ones I have listened to are 30-40 minutes so they are perfect to listen to during a commute to work.

 

Alice is a terrible host in general but she's a terrible fit for this one. She knows little about wrestling in general and pretty much nothing about pre-Attitude era stuff so she is there to read questions and not much more. Then again I'm not sure MSL would be better since he'd somehow find a way to make the show about him. IMO Cornette would benefit from having somebody to bounce ideas back and forth with.

 

The shows themselves are fun but after a few Cornette shows you end up with a lot of redundancy in his rants.

Yea Alice is terrible and tries way too hard to sound sexy and its kills what Cornette could really be. At least MSL has inside knowledge of the business

This is actually the problem with the entire MLW podcast system as a whole with Cornette in the mix. There isn't one person there (Bauer, Alice, MSL, Konnan) that can hang with Cornette when it comes to wrestling history. I enjoy the Konnan show because Konnan cracks me up and I love hearing inside dirt on WCW and TNA. I enjoy Cornette interviewing guys like Jim Ross and Bill Dundee because they go places that Ross and Dundee would never go if they weren't talking to Cornette. I like the shows where they talk to the WWE writers the same way i enjoyed Dave Lagana's old podcast because it gives you insight into the inner-workings of the WWE machine.

Yeah, who is Alice & where did she come from?  I'm not sure why a site like that needs a "personality" with little to no wrestling connection.

 

I really like the Bauer & Pollock show especially since I let my Observer sub lapse so it's my only source of intelligent discussion on current events.  And Bauer's insider knowledge is MUCH better than anything Alvarez would have to offer anyway.  I've really grown tired of MSL and I will only listen to the Konnan shows if there's a guest that interests me although Konnan needs to not interrupt so much.  He cut Samoa Joe off several times on stuff I was hoping to hear the answer to.

Corny's tough for me to tolerate on his own, but you pair him with Alice and its beyond unbearable.  I think Konnan, Court & MSL have a good thing going on the weekly show and also enjoy the Bauer & Pollack pod a ton.  Just breezes by and always interesting and entertaining.  She on the other hand brings nothing to the table.

Konnan is pure fucking gold in the podcast realm. Him not being there the last couple of weeks has actually brought the show down a bit for me.

No doubt about it.  The guy is laid back, fun and as GH noted, can offer up interesting insights on TNA and Mexico while also keeping up with WWE for the most part.  He's also great about not hogging the mic.

I'm thinking Alice is there purely because she's got a great radio voice and Cornette wants a Robin Quivers. Does she produce while doing the shows ?

She can record a Skype call and she has her NPR voice.  I think that's it.

 I think she can record a show and got in early offering help with the technical aspect. I think that is it.

The Konnan praise surprises me. Can't think of a more moronic and unpleasant wrestling podcaster to listen to. Can't fucking stand him although it could be worse. (Colt Cabana).
