Work Of Wrestling host Tim Kail discusses the recent #SpeakingOut movement, a social media reckoning with the pervasive abuse within the pro-wrestling industry.

Topics in this episode include:

  • The lack of oversight in professional wrestling, both from within and without due, in part, to how little people respect it.
  • The real-world function social media plays in people's lives and why people turn to it as a last recourse.
  • Knowing when to listen and when to speak (and how to speak so as to not co-opt the conversation).
  • Tim's own experiences, which have made it easy for him to believe these stories.
  • The ways in which our culture's systems set us on a destructive path and how, if we're lucky, our course gets corrected over time.
  • How to improve that system, which involves ideas born out of a consciousness not built by that very system.
  • Why improving working conditions will improve the quality of the art.
