This week Work of Wrestling podcast host Tim Kail explores the life-affirming nature of good art. For The Lock-Up (12:55), a review of WWE2K16 quickly transforms into a larger critique of repetition in the arts, a lack of ingenuity in videogames and film, and what "being jaded" or "cynical" really means. The The High Spot (26:11) is an examination of how art can transport us through space & time and, in so doing, enlighten us about the minds of others and also teach us more about our own maturation. The Finish (42:15) is a story submission from @TheDudeVonDoom on Twitter about how attending the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view live was an invaluable & rewarding experience.
