como estaz 2×3: Jeque’s quesadillas

On Sunday, we went to Coliseo Coacalco and Arena Naucalpan, and caught two fun shows with two different audiences (and one Hip Hop Man.)

Podcast is about 30 minutes – I went too fast, but Rob carried things by actually describing the matches. There’s no show to go to tomorrow, but there probably will be a podcast at some point.

Como Estaz 2×2: Aereo’s bite

Saturday, we saw an all minis show and a kinda-of indies versus CMLL event. We talk about them for about 40 minutes, plus/minus unexplained breaks.

There were a few more people around the microphone (/cell phone with a recording app); I did something to improve the volume but I’m not entirely sure it worked. Hopefully everything comes thru. is the Sky Stars channel.

Como Estaz 2×1: waiting for Hechicero

We’re back in Mexico, so the podcast makes an unlikely return.

Listen as we struggle with the combination of jet lag and a sometimes boring CMLL show!

Marvel at my inability to improve the sound quality!

(The como estaz tag should continue to work as a podcast feed for this show. Thanks for listening.)

Como Estaz 7: Adios

Day 7, our final full day in Mexico City and the first day we took advantage of the non-lucha parts of the city. I talk a bit too long about our trip to the Historic Center and the Anthropolgy while recreates his boredom for those trips. We didn’t let the rain stop us from our third Martes Popular show at Arena Mexico for the heavyweight title match between Shocker and Terrible, plus our third time seeing the Estetas in six days. And, in a podcast exclusive (!!!), listen as we find out if the 80th Anniversary DVDs sold in front of Arena Mexico actually are the right show.

Right click to download. It’s about 48 minutes long.

Thanks everyone for listening. That’s the end our trip and the podcast, but there will be some visual content as myself and Rob get home and have a chance to upload pictures and video. Thanks again to Black Terry Jr. and conjuarez, without whom this trip would not have been as successful or fun. Rob brought the enthuaism for all the shows so we needed him too. I was the mostly useless one, and lucky to be along for the ride.

Normal blog service will resume no later than Thursday and videos will go up no later than Tuesday.
