Episode 105 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features Conrad Thompson, the host of Something to Wrestle (with Bruce Pritchard) and What Happened When (with Tony Schiavone), two of the most popular podcasts in the sports and recreation space.
In this podcast, Thompson discusses how a mortgage company owner (Thompson) in Huntsville, Alabama ended up hosting two of the most popular wrestling podcasts; how he came up with the concept of doing a long-form examination of a singular topic in pro wrestling; what his preparation is for each show; how each show is produced; how much he relies on the reporting of Dave Meltzer and what he thinks of Meltzer’s work; the reaction to the podcast from both WWE management and the wrestlers; his relationships with Ric Flair and Bruce Pritchard; the future of potential live shows; whether it’s fair to compare the Schiavone show to the Pritchard show; if one can make a living as a podcaster; the potential for Hulk Hogan to return to the WWE; why John Cena is likely the person he’d most want to do a series of podcasts with; whether Paul Heyman would ever host a podcast series; and much more.
