List ‘Em and Learn Episode 13 – Well Then

Jan
31

Once a year, 30 men enter one ring for a shot at glory, and a chance to main event the showcase of the immortals. Multiple times per year, some dweeb records podcasts about wrestling where he talks to his friends about those 30 men, and as two men discuss thirty, they multiply into 60 men! Those sentences made sense, right? Anyway, it’s List Em and Learn! Justin Shapiro joins Matt once again as they run down their top 10 favorite Royal Rumble matches in history. From all of the top notch entrances to all of the bottom notch eliminations, they go through all of the notches of Royal Rumbles of all eras, until only one (two) Royal Rumbles are left standing. Also, be on the look out for a very special guest, who makes his presence known via text message. It’s a show that’s no longer topical, so check it out!

LIST ‘EM AND LEARN Episode 1: “Episode 1” (Part 2)

Jun

This exists only to get the RSS/iTunes feed to work right. Same links!

A brand new podcast has been born. That’s what happens when two podcasts mate. In this case, the mommy was Dr. Keith Presents, and the daddy was The Justin Shapirshow. DKP’s Alan4L and The Shapirshow’s Justin Shapiro join their Ne’er-do-well son, Matt Feuerstein, on his new podcast entitled “List ‘Em and Learn.” Every month it’s going to feature a new countdown on various topics, wrestling and otherwise. For this inaugural edition, these three kooks are counting down the top 20 United States-based wrestlers from 2002-2014, based entirely on their in-ring skills. You might say they’re going to list them wrestlers, and hopefully learn a few valuable life lessons along the way. It’s super long, because Alan and Matt each have their own lists, and Justin sends it all up by satirizing the very notion of putting art and artists into some sort of capitalistic competition. IT’S A TWO-PART MAGICAL FREAKIN’ ADVENTURE, SO CHECK IT OUT!!!!!
