Jason's on vacation, so I had the pleasure of sitting down with Timothy Robert Buechner of the We Don't Know Wrestling Podcast Network and ending up with a sprawling-in-the-best-way, fuller-length episode. Biden v. Trump w/r/t Covid-19, mental deterioration, and more. Mayor Pete has a weird exchange while testifying before Congress in which he cartoonishly pledges fealty to whoever he has to in order to get ahead. Stephen King is hilariously pranked and promotes genocide in the process. Then we shift towards the news of Vince "The Rapist" McMahon retiring from the WWE, the metafictional narratives and the Andy Kaufman of the pro wrestling world, the useful wrestling-to-politics analogies found in the field, and the "Dark Side of the Ring," both literally and figuratively, in tragic figures like Chris Benoit, Jake the Snake, Brian Pillman, and in bizarro events like "The Plane Ride from Hell."
