I haven’t been able to call in or be in the live chat due to my work sched, but I just wanted to thank you guys for getting Damian in to talk about each of his episodes. They look wonderful, are snappy and succinct, but most importantly are telling great stories I can’t imagine many wrestling fans in North America would otherwise learn about. My partner, who wants nothing to do with wrestling, was fascinated by the Fighting Cholitas in particular.
