Tights and Fights Ep. 81: Fast Lane and the broken music of Matt Hardy

Danielle, Jay, Hal
Hal Lublin

Jay Washington

Jay Washington is officially back in the Nation of Conversation!

RAW has us asking all sorts of questions including who’s going to face women’s champion Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania. At first glance, it looks like Asuka. But Jay thinks the seeds are being planted for the Empress of Tomorrow to face Charlotte, leaving Nia Jax to take on Alexa.

And after Roman Reigns fired the first salvo in against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman was quick to shoot back… but is this feud clicking on all levels like it should be? And if we do, in fact get Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles, which of those matches closes out Mania?

Plus, what we think of John Cena being involved in the Fast Lane main event, why the Mixed Match Challenge is still so much fun, and why Hal may finally be close to giving up on Smackdown.

Ring Tones:

He’s been Xtreme, he’s been V.1, he’s been broken and awoken… We’re taking a special musical journey through the career of Matt Hardy. Is his music getting us in the right mood for the latest phase of his career? We’ll take deep dive.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford ,and Jay Washington

Switchblade Sisters Episode 18: The Witch Who Came from the Sea with Drea Clark

April Wolfe
Drea Clark

The Witch Who Came from the Sea

You're in for a real freaky treat this week because April talks to 'Who Shot Ya?' regular, producer Drea Clark, about the under appreciated The Witch Who Came from the Sea. The two of them explore the nutty movie about a psychotic barmaid who sexually fantasizes about murdering large men. They discuss how the character remains relatable despite the murders, and how the film actually does a responsible job representing the effects of child abuse. Drea discusses how she approaches projects to produce, the realities of being an indie producer, and what her working relationship with the director is like. She also discusses her most recent film, No Light and No Land Anywhere, and its similarities to The Witch Who Came from the Sea.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch The Witch Who Came from the Sea.

Also check out Drea's film No Light and No Land Anywhere that comes out on digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, etc.) on March 27.

EP24: Brian "B+" Cross on Freestyle Fellowship's "To Whom It May Concern" (1991)

Heat Rocks
Brian Cross

The album: Freestyle Fellowship: To Whom It May Concern (1991)

Brian Cross, better known to most as B+, is one of the most important photographers of the hip-hop generation to ever emerge out of the West Coast. A transplant from Ireland to California, Cross began documenting the L.A. rap community throughout the late '80s and early '90s, producing one of the great books about the region's hip-hop scene, It's Not About a Salary. He's also a founding partner of the music/events organization Mochilla. Just this year, Cross finally published his first book reflecting on his career in photography, Ghost Notes: Music of the Unplayed. For his episode with Heat Rocks, Cross took us back to 1991 and the release of To Whom It May Concern, one of the greatest West Coast hip-hop albums of all time...and one that most people never got to hear back in the day because of its limited distribution at the time. Better late than never; don't keep sleeping.

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 47: Rachel Weil on Femicom and the Value of Preserving Classic 'Girl' Video Games


Do you remember all of those video games that were made for girls back in the 90s? Well they're not being archived the same way that stereotypical boy games are being preserved. They don't have value in the gaming community and many of these games are being forgotten even though they were just as creative and innovative for the industry. Our guest Rachel Weil is trying to change that by preserving these 'girl' games by going around the world and collecting these games and talking to the people who made them. She is a software developer for Microsoft and the founder of the Femicom Museum, a hybrid physical/digital museum and archive dedicated to the preservation and reimagination of femininity, girlhood, and the aesthetics of cute within twentieth-century video games, computing, and electronic toys. Rachel did not appear on the Adam Ruins Everything TV show but her work reminded us of the themes we explored in our Adam Ruins Summer Fun episode. And since we're in the off-season of the TV show, we'll be inviting more guests onto the podcast whose work relates to themes we explored on the TV show or who are doing fascinating work or research that's worth discussing anyway. On the podcast Adam and Rachel had a lively discussion about gender expectations, the negative effects of marketing towards girls and boys, their favorite classic games and even their favorite savory breakfasts.
