The podcast is okayish for int wrestling fans. Its the best content  out there in the barren landscape, but the  show is meant for college wrestling and thats the interest of the hosts, not international. 

Pyle is just a normal guy college wrestling fan. Not terribly insightful or opinionated.  Askren likes to derail topics. If he doesn't care about what is being discussed ( frequently happens)  he will derail for 15 minutes on trivial matters like not liking the font of the show prep notes. Askren talking about the ways he is unprepared for the show is a staple of the podcast.  I don't like this type of content unless its done with a comedic bent and Aksren isn't funny when he does it. 

As an international fan, its better than a Chael Sonnen video where every second sentence is wrong and the analysis goes like " jordan will beat the russian" but it still doesn't work. Askren doesn't hide that he  doesn't care. Whats his preview for 125 kg, "we talked about this yesterday Gable is another level and will win Gold, don't contradict me on that lets move on and talk about college recruiting".

Not sure I will be able to get through the show without a million heavyweight hand fighting jokes and the always exciting Alien Hours.  We are all truly better people having lived through those comedic masterpiences.

Any further details on it?  I didn't mind the guy.  As a character he's a bit more fun to listen to than many MANY other wrestling podcasts.

CP just said on air that Ollie moved into the marketing department of FloSports and doesn't have time to appear on the podcast anymore.

This is LAME.

It's like replacing Joey on FRIENDS with nobody and then not even having an episode detailing his death or disappearance or anything then somehow finding out in an episode a few weeks later that he is still there, just working in a different part of the city so he doesn't get any screen time anymore.

Doesn't have the time. What a joke.

That actually happened to J Peterman.  He ended up hooked on smack in Burma.  Don't think he ever made it back to the catalog.

CP addressed this week. He said Ollie is part of the marketing department not the content department and he just didn't want to do FRL anymore, but maybe he would drop in once in a while.

Looks like I beat you to the scoop!
