    11 - Going to the Garden

    We’re back! We sincerely hope you’re all doing as well as you can. We understand how hard times are right now, and that’s why we’re here: to try to put a smile on your face. On this episode of Last Stop Penn Station, it is the holy grail. For Cary, for Ian, for ROH and NJPW, it was the MSG G1 Supercard. The night itself was absolutely magical, but the months and days leading up to the event was full of incredible ups and downs. Cary and Ian take you through Cary’s early days getting acclimated to MSG, his foray into cocaine and the ridiculous abundance of Grateful Dead shows, and more. What happened when Ian nearly signed with WWE just before the MSG show? What happened when Vince McMahon tried to block the show from happening all together? It’s all here, on episode 11 of Last Stop Penn Station!

Cary discusses the struggles of getting back on his feet and trying to turn ten dollars to thirty, and more. The golden ticket of the Radio City Christmas show, Freddy the Weeper, Silent Sydney, and so many other characters. Cary goes over the various characters he became close with during his time returning to the city. All of which, you need to hear to believe. Try not to laugh.

    On this week’s episode of Last Stop Penn Station, we catch with Cary as he escapes to New Orleans. With a pocket full of miracles, and $1,500 in hand, Cary schlepped off to the French Quarter of New Orleans in the mid 80’s. What happened after just one day in New Orleans and how did Cary get on his feet? Cary chronicles for Ian the struggle to reconstruct his life by getting an apartment and hustling downtown, and becoming a “ticket genius.” Cary discusses his first experience with college football, how unwilling the people are to buy tickets, and of course... Liberal Libby. All this, and more, on Episode 9 of LSPS!

    08 - Pig Faced Stanley & PR Pt3

    We have said it before, but we can’t express how truly grateful we are for the amazing outpouring of support for Last Stop Penn Station. Our t-shirt was rated among the top selling t-shirts on Pro Wrestling Tees, and that means the world to us. This week is perhaps the most loaded episode to date. Starting where we left off in Puerto Rico, Cary explains what led to an emergency meeting with dangerous implications, offending children with the stench of dank weed, and the disgusting way Victor Quiñones ate food. This episode has it all, including Pig Face Stanley, the kind of guy that gives Jews a bad name. Listen all the way through to the end. This one is intense.

    Summary: On this week’s episode of Last Stop Penn Station, we revisit Cary’s journey through Puerto Rico to continue the story with part two. Before we get started this week, though, Ian and Cary share their sentiments and gratitude for the overwhelming response LSPS has received. Episode 7, as always, has no shortage of hilarious stories, characters, ups, and downs. Season one revolves around places, and season two, which Ian assures says is in the oven, will revolve around people. We truly are incredibly grateful for the response this podcast has received. All aboard to Last Stop Penn Station! This ride isn’t slowing down any time soon!

Hands down the best podcast

I grew up in Youngstown,oh around all the hustlers and pool players. Every story I hear about Cary reminds me of my childhood. Everyone at the pool hall had a crazy nickname like “The Camel” did. Ian is a great co-host and on point every episode. Thank you for the great content.
