Professional wrestling is an art. The Work of Wrestling is dedicated to exploring that simple truth. Host & author Tim Kail analyzes wrestling matches, explicates promos, reviews pay-per-views, and shares personal stories in an effort to provide pro-wrestling the in-depth arts criticism it genuinely deserves.

Tim Kail is joined by the creator of @PoliticsKayfabe, Robert Bennett, to discuss the intersection between politics and pro-wrestling. Rob explains how pro-wrestling can be used as a means of understanding the inner-workings of the political system, which is remarkably similar to the inner-workings of the pro-wrestling industry. There are heel politicians, babyface politicians, rivalries, promos, catch phrases, cheap pops, worked-shoots, comebacks, and we, the people, are all being worked. Join Tim & Rob for a fun conversation that goes beyond the common boundaries of politics and wrestling to discover some surprising truths about the recent election, America's kayfabe, and the monster heel (Putin) running interference.
