all about podcasting
A space to share contests, interviews, tips and more
Welcome back to another edition of
The Podomatic Feature Series
This week we bodyslam you into the world of Professional Wrestling with the
Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling
With in-depth interviews, researched discussions, and a whole lot of DDT’s, you can't go wrong with this one.
We asked John (co-founder) a few questions before he choke-slammed our intern:
1. When, how and why did you start podcasting?
Starting the podcast was a well thought out venture, called the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling. We started the podcast in January of 2015. Originally, we would just record phone calls of ourselves talking about the business we loved so dearly: professional wrestling. We really wanted to do something in the wrestling business that was fun and wouldn't be a burden on us. It was more of a passion play or a labor of love for us. We wanted to do it because we felt like there were so many stories to tell about the wrestling business and more importantly the wrestlers themselves. We had agreed early on that this would be strictly wrestler interviews and that is how we would drive the show and tell their stories.
2. How did you pick a subject/topic?
The way we would pick a subject (or guest) was fairly simple: interview anyone from within the wrestling business who had a story to tell. One very easy thing to figure out early on was that the wrestlers always had a story to tell. So we will interview wrestling legends, Hall of Famers, current stars, future stars and people who worked behind the scenes as well. Sometimes the subject(s) are very topical as they have upcoming shows, movies, projects, signings etc to promote. We have been doing this for 5 years plus, have done over 430 shows, and have no signs of slowing down anytime soon as the guests just keep on rolling in. Picking the subject (or guest) is usually very fun, but sometimes securing them for the interviews can be a battle.
3. Advice for people that haven’t pressed record yet?
My advice for people that haven't pressed record yet is, you have to be very passionate about what you want to record. This is going to be your show, and yes you want it to be successful, but you have to love it as well. For whatever it is you decide that your focus will be, I also suggest that you do your research. Even if you think you know the topics you are going to discuss well, it's always a good idea to do even more research. As long as you love what your talking about and are prepared, you should never be intimidated to hit that record button and start your podcast. Passion plus research will ensure a great podcast that you will love recording each week!
