And we will tell you how we feel about it all! Let's Podcast!

    328. Israel Loves the Von Erichs

    This week, AEW took an eventful trip to the Canadian North, and gentle souls earned a big win you can tuck away in a backpack. AEW Titles are ranked. Fall-out from Bray's Arrival and Extreme Rules round out our WWE time, plus plenty of routes down different alleys of nonsense. 
    Please support our friend Tiffany if you can. $50 or more, send proof to patreonbuddy@gmail.com and request a for-the-good-of-a-buddy video message. It's like Cameo, but all profits already go to a great cause of kindness to make more kindness. Let's Podcast!

    327. No Fighting

    After a week off, Marty and Sarah pick up with gentle opinions on AEW, and fixes and solves for storyline ideas. Entrances and exits are becoming the revolving door function between companies - so how is ROH still so ROH? Extreme Rules: we love a Saturday PPV. Premium Live Event. Whatever! All that and a whole lot more: Let's Podcast!

Missing the buddies

I miss this podcast so much. It was such a bright spot for me for years, hearing other fans of pro wrestling talk positively about something we all enjoy. I hope Marty, Sarah and all the buddies are doing well. — Wordy McParticiple

You will love this show!

Marty & Sarah love wrestling, that is a fact! (Spoiler alert…they also love each other!) They shine a positive light on the wacky world of professional wrestling. Come for the wrestling talk…stick around for the real life stuff. They are big supporters of mental health awareness, and have helped many of us in that respect. They are the best!

Miss the Buddies

I truly love this podcast and it has been such a light in so many darker times. I leave this feedback because I love it so much but it’s been feeling a little heavy recently with all that is going on in the world of wrestling. There used to be a joy (no pun intended, Sarah) that feels hasn’t been on the show in a few weeks. I kind of miss the positive light and definitely miss hearing from the buddies. I still wear my Wrestling Heart shirts with pride and love these two. Just want some of that old feeling back in the podcast.
