Rebekka Johnson and Kimmy Gatewood star as "Stacey" and "Dawn" in the upcoming Netflix series "GLOW."

The show is all about the 80's LA-based wrestling promotion Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. It tells the story of a group of women who were cast to learn how to wrestle and appeal to a demographic that the mainstream WWF had often ignored.

They tell Mike, Hal and Danielle what it was like to take their first bump, if they feel like they could work a legitimate match and whether they plan to continue wrestling in the future.

GLOW begins streaming on Netflix on June 23rd.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.

If you liked the show, please share it with your friends and be sure to leave us a quick review on iTunes or wherever you get podcasts.

Minority Korner

Nnekay has returned home from summer camp aka MaxFun Con, and James being the Dinah Lohan mother that he is, couldn't be happier to have his baby gurl back home. Nnekay returns home with tales of her adventure of twirling, teaching folks how to side eye through being research warriors, and found out what a Bo Jangle's is. The Wonder Twins of Podcasting unpack the EPIC Black Panther Trailer, and combat the criticism by some (racists) that it's too "militant". Also are the rumors true started in this very episode about Angela Davis being in the Black Panthers movie? Find out! Continuing our celebration of Pride, and in honor of remembering the Pulse Massacre and their victims, James gives props to 10 LatinX LGBT folk who slay all day, everyday! Move over Ms. Frizzle, because Ms. Sizzle (Nnekay) has gotten hold of the magic school bus and she is taking us on a world wind tower visiting some Feminist Monuments! Also James let's Katy Perry have it! Swish swish- bish!
