This week on The Work of Wrestling podcast Tim Kail gets Inspired by Colt Cabana's latest discussion with indy wrestler Cody Deaner. "The Lock-Up" and "The High Spot" are merged into one stretch of analysis, and Tim goes into detail about the way pro-wrestling and podcasting have inspired him in his life and in his creative efforts, and he offers some advice to those eager to make the leap into the self-promotional, internet-branding "content-creation" game (Starting at 12:00). Then in "The Finish" (26:44) Tim is joined by friend and fellow prowrestling fan Al Monelli (@Monellifilms on Twitter) to discuss whether or not celebrating pro-wrestling contributes to human beings purposefully destroying their bodies, and Al shares what it was like to meet his favorite wrestler, Bret The Hitman Hart, for the first time.
