Wrestling: Ep 20 - TLC Tag League Final Battle

I am already trained. JD is joined by a different Colin (ubertieguy) for this cast as we first talk about some more wrestlers signing with ROH, and then move into thoughts over the next batch of NXT call-ups to Raw and SD (0-26).
Our wrestler spotlight covers the revolutionary Dynamite Kid. We go over who he was, what he meant to wrestling, and how good he was especially his rivalry with Tiger Mask (26-41).

In this episode, we get to cover some interesting events coming out of the indie scene in the UK (41-58).
David Starr defended his title over in RPW at Cockpit 35, while Progress wrestling was busy releasing two chapters in 80 and 81 with a heavy focus on their tag team division.

Into tier 2 promotions, ROH had their final ppv of the year with a lot of send offs of the Elite leaving. Final Battle sure seemed to live up to its name (58-1:21). Finally, NJPW's tag league came to an end and the road to Wrestlekingom happened. What went down at tag league, and Ospreay and Ibushi had a moment (1:21-1:37).

WWE also had their final ppv of 2018 in TLC. The women lived up to the main event while some others sank the crowd. Also, a cage match happened in NXT. Quite a lot to discuss here (1:37-2:09).

We finish off the cast as we usually do with an episode of WCW Thunder (eps 14, 1998) the go home show before Spring Stampede. How will this one be (2:09-end)?
Cast completes with wrestler rankings and community shoutouts.

Retrocast: Ep 34 - Character Origins

More holiday cheer coming. This cast starts off with talking some Smash Ultimate and lots of opinions over an indie release titles To The Moon (0-31).
For our topic segment we discuss more bad news coming out of shady moves the gaming industry is making, but we do follow that up with talking about some of our favourite gaming characters (31-56).

Of course, our last theme for 2018 is all about games that featured a new character that we see in future games. Character Origins is important to establishing a franchise, but are the games any good (56-end)?

Anime: Ep 39 - Legend of the Galactic Heroes (with Andrew from Recovery of an Anime Junkie)

A good dictator or a corrupt democracy? In this podcast episode we are joined by Andrew from the Recovery of an Anime Junkie podcast in his second appearance. First, we have our usual housekeeping and our contest winner announcement (0-7).
We got some news like a new Rumiko manga, new Ghost in the Shell coming, and making fun of Andrew's three favourite anime in a call back to our very first anime episode (7-56).

In 1988, an OVA space opera series started and it went on to be regarded as one of the greatest anime of all time. That tile is called the Legend of the Galactic Heroes. We cover season one aka episodes 1-26, and we discuss, break down, and analyze this epic to the fullest extent we could (56-end).

In the latest for WWE, Rad and JD briefly discuss some ongoings within NXT UK, NXT post War Games, and our stance on who is indeed 'the man' (1:25-1:47).

We finish off the cast as we usually do with an episode of WCW Thunder (eps 13, 1998) 10 days before Spring Stampede. How will this one be (1:47-end)?
