Tights and Fights Ep. 82: Keep Moolah out of WrestleMania Forever

Hal, Danielle, Katie
Hal Lublin
Danielle Radford
Katie Willert

Katie Willert is the newest member of the nation of conversation!

She joins Hal Lublin and Danielle Radford to discuss the latest on the road to Wrestlemania. Everything from John Cena challenging the Undertaker, Roman Reigns being “temporarily suspended” and Asuka calling out Charlotte Flair for a match for the women’s title.

Plus, why does Danielle take MAJOR issue with the storyline between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax? And who do we think Sami and Kevin should face in their feud with Shane?

Main Event:


WWE decided to have a catch-all women’s rumble at WrestleMania. It sounds like it could be fun, but they also decided to have The Fabulous Moolah as the namesake for the event. We’ll fill you in on why the “Fabulous” Moolah is such an awful figure from wrestling’s past who’s not worth immortalizing.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Katie Willert.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

April Wolfe
Lynn Shelton

Code 46

This week we've got the amazing director Lynn Shelton (Humpday, Your Sister's Sister, Laggies) talking about the mostly ignored Michael Winterbottom film, Code 46. Lynn describes the film as the "one of the most romantic films" she's ever seen. April and her dissect the "light futurism" and lack of CGI used in the movie. They discuss the amazing work of Samantha Morton and how her face really carries the emotion of the film. Lynn also talks about her new film Outside In and working with Edie Falco and Jay Duplass. She describes how she went from being an indie filmmaker living in Seattle to working constantly as a TV director for such shows as Mad Men, Fresh Off the Boat, Love, and The New Girl.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch Code 46.

Also check out Lynn's newest film Outside In which will be in NY/LA on March 30th and all digital platforms on April 3rd.

EP25: Denaun "Mr." Porter on A Tribe Called Quest's "Low End Theory" (1991)

Heat Rocks
Denaun Porter

The album: A Tribe Called Quest: Low End Theory (1991)

Producer/MC Denaun Porter aka Mr. Porter has been in the hip-hop scene for over two decades. He has some impressive credits under his belt, producing songs that combined have sold almost 100 million records. He has worked with some of the industries top-talent including Eminem, 50 Cent, SnoopDog, Shakira, Bad Meets Evil, and many more. He is also one of the founding members of the chart-topping Detroit hip-hop group D12. It was none other than ATCQ's "Bonita Applebaum" that inspired Mr. Porter to get into hip-hop and not surprisingly, when we invited him to the show, he wanted to talk about one of the all-time great hip-hop albums: ATCQ's sophomore effort, Low End Theory. 

During our convo, we discussed the production techniques and sample choices, how good the album's sequencing was, and why Q-Tip and the late Phife Dawg went together like peanut butter and jelly. We also got into the fight-provoking question of: Low End Theory or Midnight Marauders?

    One Bad Mother
    Airlie Anderson

    Don’t hang up yet, you’re just on hold! Biz and Theresa wonder if putting things on hold until [fill in the blank] is a good thing, and if perhaps it's better to just let some things go so that we can return to them when we're ready. Let's hold off on answering that. Plus, Biz is in the moment but not in the zone, Theresa says, "I’ll do it myself!" and we talk to award-winning children's book author and illustrator Airlie Anderson about her new book, Neither, which is a beautiful celebration of diversity and inclusion.
