Nearly un-listenable. A shame too because most of the material covered is interesting stuff i havent heard before. If this can be reengineered to at least cut out the crowd chatter i think it would be a superb interview.

So this time you try to make up for all the damage you caused with the conspiracy nutcases you endorsed ever so fondly a few weeks ago? You lost all credibility already.

I don't know how much of an expert this guy is. Reason OJ got 33 years for the Vegas case was due to kidnapping, not theft. The moment he told his goons not to let anyone leave, and they had guns, it was a felony.

love your podcasts. just found them on weekend and the 3 I listened to have been all 5 star so far. I have been an owen fan my whole life coming from regina Saskatchewan. stampede was here geez monthly?!? so grew up with all those great stars you talk about. one thing I find sad other then the tragedy is it got me nostalgic to watch some owen matches or promos on YouTube. if you just search owen hart you are bombarded with videos and talks on his death. sometimes these great stars like owen and chris B. (another fantastic podcast thank you) it somehow becomes all about the tragedy. like their lives accomplishments are erased. wouldn't it be nice if someone fresh typed in owen hart and saw these fantastic matches and innovative promos and see how brilliant he was in life instead of feeling dirty for searching his name in the first place. i want to smile when i think of owen not feel like I'm looking for the next "faces of death" video.
