The Loneliest Whale - Tracking The Ocean's Rarest Mammal
Documentary filmmaker and director, Joshua Zeman, returns with a brand-new doc, “The Loneliest Whale: The Search For 52,” available now in theaters and on demand (https://bleeckerstreetmedia.com/the-loneliest-whale). It’s a departure from his typical true crime stories (aka “Cropsey,” “Murder Mountain,” “Sons of Sam”), and instead embarks on an expedition to find the one rare whale in the ocean that sings at its own frequency (52 hertz), and why scientists believe this whale has lived its whole life in complete solitude! Josh explains how one kickstarter campaign got the ball rolling on this journey, how and when actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier of “Entourage” fame got involved, and what it was like to spend 7 days on the ocean searching for and tagging whales. He recounts some of their open sea adventures, how the story evolved into more than just the “Search for 52,” and some of the unexpected help they encountered along the way.
The Art of Podcasting with Colt Cabana
Colt Cabana has a brand-new podcast, “Wrestling Anonymous,” and fans are invited to participate by sharing their own wrestling stories via hotline (call 87 Cabana 34) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Colt explains what inspired his new show, and why he decided to put his pioneering “The Art Of Wrestling” pod on official hiatus! He talks about being early to the podcast space and what that was like 10 years ago, hustling for guests, his favorite interviews (Roddy Piper and Steve Regal), and the ones he’s still trying to forget! Colt also talks about fusing his love of comedy with wrestling, and how that translates to his in-ring performances and his podcasts. You’ll hear stories about his time with WWE as Scotty Goldman, his run at Rev Pro in the UK, and stories about making the “Wrestling Road Diaries” documentary. Plus, he talks about his “Unprofessional Wrestling” live show and his hopes for its return!
Juventud Guerrera Spills the Juice
Juventud Guerrera brings that Juvi Juice to TIJ! He and Chris share the story of Juvi’s AEW debut and return to TNT! They explain how Juvi came to be the third Labor of Jericho, what it took to make that happen, and why Juvi almost missed the show! They speak to their first-ever meeting at ECW, Juvi’s 6-year run at WCW, and his short-lived stint at WWE. Juvi talks Filthy Animals, the Mexicools, and the “Juvi Juice” catchphrase, and he reveals the greatest compliment Vince McMahon ever gave him. He recounts working with Rey Mysterio, the role that Psicosis played in his career, and how he really felt about losing his mask at WCW.
Nancy Wilson & The Symphony of Heart
Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Nancy Wilson of Heart fame, is playing with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra on October 30th (tickets at www.seattlesymphony.org). They’re doing a mix of songs from her first-ever solo album, “You And Me,” and the Heart catalogue! Nancy’s talking about this killer live event, why she chose to cover songs by The Beatles, Pearl Jam, and Bruce Springsteen on her new solo album, and what it was like recording at the height of the pandemic lockdown. She’s got some great rock & roll stories about Heart’s early days on the road, opening for Rod Stewart, what happened when John Mellencamp opened for Heart, meeting Paul McCartney, performing Led Zeppelin songs in front of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, her cameo appearance in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” and the time that Eddie Van Halen called her in the middle of the night to play his new song for her.

Nick Gage is the “The King” of death match wrestling, and he’s challenging to reclaim the GCW World Championship from Jon Moxley this Saturday 10/9/21 at GCW Fight Club (you can stream it on Fite TV). Nick run downs his preparations for the match, what GCW and the MDK Gang mean to him, and what inspired his love of death match wrestling in the first place. He also recounts his nearly 7-years in jail, the lessons learned and friends he made there, how the farm work he did impacted his wrestling career, and what that first match post-jail was like. He also details the night he wrestled David Arquette (who almost died of his injuries), the night Nick himself almost died of his own injuries, and the craziest weaponry he’s used in the ring. And of course, he tells the full story of his AEW experience and his role in the Labors of Jericho.
Robert Hansen - Hunting Humans Like Animals
Robert Hansen (or “Butcher Baker” as he was known in the media) is a serial killer who’s fascinated Hollywood for years! He and his gruesome crimes have inspired movies (“The Frozen Ground”) and TV shows (“Mind Hunters,” “Criminal Minds”). Robert kidnapped his victims, tortured and sexually assaulted them, and then turned them loose in the Alaskan wildnerness in order to HUNT THEM DOWN like animals! It’s believed that he raped 30 women, and abducted and murdered another 17 between 1971 and 1983 though he was only convicted (and ultimately sentenced) for 4 murders total. Jamie and John from True Crimecast return to discuss Robert’s background and life, details of the case, stories of the victims, and explain how Robert Hansen was finally captured and why prosecutors only tried him for 4 murders.
Best podcast I’ve ever listened to!
I’ve been listening to TIJ for a couple years now, my first episode was when he interviewed Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and I’ve been listening ever since! I love the variety, everything from Pro Wrestling, Music, Conspiracy Theories, to horror things. Chris Jericho is many things, Le Champion, the Ayatollah of rock and rolla, and he can certainly add Worlds Best Podcast Host……EVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVERRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Jericho is a great interviewer. I enjoy most of the episodes. I avoid the occasional anti-science, flat earth, conspiracy type episodes.
Awesome Billy Corgan interview.
Fantastic Woodstock ‘99 episode.
Wanted to hate as a wrestler. But he’s one of my favorites. Genius. Funny, witty, athletic as heck. Tells a great story. Music what a joke! (Wrong again!) Judas is my favorite song fozzy rocks! One of these years I hope to go on the Rock rager wrestling cruise. I’m saving! Looks like awesome time!
