Hal Lublin’s returned from his great boat adventure as we inch closer and closer to Wrestlemania!

We’ve gotten more matches confirmed for the show of shows! Seth Rollins vs. Triple H looks like it will happen; AJ Styles put Shane McMahon’s head through a car window (a fact that WWE replays wouldn’t let us forget); and both RAW and Smackdown Tag Team Champions got the chance to perform!

We’ll break all that down and so much more.

Main Event

The rise of the smart mark has changed the business of pro wrestling, for better and for worse. How can WWE better address the storylines that fans want to see? How can fans temper the expectations so that they enjoy wrestling more? The Nation of Conversation will explore both options.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Rich Swann and Sean Hayes’s masterful impressions of Bret Hart and Steve Austin.

Mike put over The final segment of RAW featuring Seth Rollins and Triple H

Hal put over Corey Graves on Talking Smack

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle .

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 22: Why Fast Fashion Fails Us

| 0 comments

If you wear clothes, you're going to love this Adam Ruins Everything podcast. Our guest, Professor Laura McAndrews, appeared on Adam Ruins Shopping Malls where she discussed the deceptions surrounding outlets malls. But on the podcast, Laura really goes into depth about the inner-workings of fast fashion. And she would know - she lived it!
 
Laura worked in retail for years, primarily for Gap and Urban Outfitters. She traveled to factories all over the world to oversee fashion production. The clothes might have been cute, but the rest wasn't pretty. Laura recalls many of these experiences on the podcast - from noticing the poor construction of these clothes to the awful working conditions for the factory workers. Eventually, Laura left fashion for academia. She now teaches textiles, merchandising and interiors at the University of Georgia, and she encourages her students to speak up about working conditions once they enter the workforce.

In Headlines this week, we're talking BBC Dad, Vibrator Lawsuit and Fearless Girl statue. In Politics Round up, we cover Healthcare Bill Update, Steve King Tweets, Jeff Sessions Fires Judges and a Wiretapping Update! And of course, the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy, and be sure to share!

How is Minister Campio ever gonna get a square job when he has all those crazy tats? It’s the episode that separates the Pee-Wee from The Boys.
