List ‘Em and Learn Episode 16 – Who Will Survive? No, seriously, please tell me who will survive because I’m extremely scared!

Nov
16

In the post-apocalyptic rubble of November 2016, List Em and Learn stumbles out from a heap of toxic waste. Thanks to Joe Gagne for reviving this ailing and depressed show, and its equally depressed host. And if anything can cheer up Matt and America, it’s WWE’s most exciting and popular gimmick match: the Survivor Series elimination match! Matt and Joe run down the top 10 Survivor Series elimination matches. How can they pick? They’re all so good! Seriously though, some of them are actually good. Really! And the show is also good, thanks to the always cheerful Joe pulling Matt through his blues with the help of some wrestling matches that feature a variety of bone-rattling slams and pinning combinations!

List ‘Em and Learn Episode 13 – Well Then

Jan

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!

It’s a new year but the gang at thecubsfan.com is up to the same old tricks. This time, they all gather for a very special edition of “List Em and Learn,” as Matt is joined by his two dads, Justin and Joe. J&J Security tell Matt what’s what, and teach him what the meaning of New Years is really all about as they count down the top 10 best years in WWE history. They all like matches, so some of them say that matches make a year good. Some of them even like interviews and angles too. Which years will come out on top? Will it be 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, or 2015? Yes, it will be some of those years. One thing these years all have in common is that they all contain the month of June. They have other things in common too, and Matt, Joe, and Justin will talk about all of them on this very special episode! It’s a very special episode, so check it out!

It’s Thanksgiving once again, and for the second year in a row, you’re being surprised with a wrestling podcast that’s going to be the talk of the wrestling world, and set download records. And then after you listen to the new “Art of Wrestling” episode, you can be one of the 5 people to hear the brand new Thanksgiving edition of List Em and Learn. On this episode, Justin Shapiro joins Matt to list the top 10 things they’re most thankful for in wrestling. They interpret the topic completely differently, so things get pretty confusing.

From men to ladies to stacks of things to gifs to multiple websites, this show is a tour de force. There’s also singing, so there may be dancing when you play this show for your entire family at the Thanksgiving dinner table. It’s a podcast you can listen to while eating turkey, so check it out!!!!!!

Everyone’s 12th favorite podcast is back! This time, the king of wrestling podcasts, Joe Gagne, returns to the show to list the 10 greatest “What Ifs” in wrestling. For example: what if you listened to this podcast instead of not listening to it? The course of your life would change dramatically! On the show, Matt and Joe think of all of the times where one little change would have altered the wrestling world forever. List spoilers: what if the Young Stallions never broke up? What if Mick Foley’s last name was Jackson instead of Foley? (His name would have been Mick Jackson!) What if John Cena’s finisher was the top rope double axehandle? We go in depth on these topics and more, to help you, the listener, understand just how important our choices and actions are. Never has the name “List ‘Em and Learn” been more apt. It’s an aptly named show, so check it out!!”

Feb

List ‘Em and Learn is back to warm you all up during this cold winter by…counting backwards. This time Matt is joined by the host of The Pro Wrestling Super Show (which can be found on the Place to Be Wrestling Network), Steven Graham. Matt and Steven run down ECW greatest matches. Both lists include the historic “Battle of the Bam Bams” and the night that Kimona Wanalaya danced atop the ECW Arena (they don’t actually include either of those). ECW featured the lewdest, the crudest, the shrewdest, the dudest, the gluedest, the Judas, and the Buddhist wrestling action on this side of the Pacific Ocean, so there’s lots of great stuff to talk about. It’s a podcast where we talk about 2 Cold Scorpio, so check it out!!!!
