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!

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.
