Friendly Fire Ep 4: First Blood

Friendly Fire

First Blood: is it about the challenges of small-town law enforcement, or is the tale of John Rambo an allegory for the war in Vietnam? On today’s episode Adam, Ben, and John explore the abandoned mine that is this 1982 thriller, and learn that maybe after a war, nobody truly goes home.

NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia

NXT’s hot streak of quality events continues!

Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and Johnny Gargano tore the house down in the NXT Title match. They both seem destined for big stories in the coming months before the next TakeOver but, for now, we can just bask in the afterglow of how special this match was.

Plus Ember Moon retained her woman’s title against Shayna Baszler in a hard-hitting match. But will Moon lose that title to Baszler in the coming months to head to the main roster or should she stick around NXT a bit longer?

Not to be outdone, Undisputed Era’s Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly retained their tag titles over The Authors of Pain while their leader Adam Cole came up short against Aleister Black. Where does this trio go next to keep their footing in NXT?

All that… and we’ll even discuss the return of the XFL, the latest rifts in Bullet Club and why Kenny Omega’s reunion with Kota Ibushi brought tears to our eyes.

Royal Rumble

Oh, what a Royal Rumble it was!

It’s great to finally have a Big 4 weekend that everyone’s given rave reviews too. We had not one, but TWO great Royal Rumble matches, including the first-ever women’s event. Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka have been near-unanimously praised as the right winners of the contests and there were tons of legends who returned to keep the crowd engaged.

But significantly, UFC star Ronda Rousey made her debut after Asuka’s big win. With reports coming out that she’s a full-time wrestler now, how optimistic are we that we’ll enjoy what she brings to the table?

And now that we’re pretty sure Nakamura will face AJ Styles for the WWE championship, where does that leave best friends Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens? And how does Roman Reigns get his long-expected match with Brock?

Welcome to the Road to WrestleMania!

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

One Bad Mother Episode 240: Party Favors: The Garbage You Take Home! Plus Ophira Eisenberg on Change

One Bad Mother
Ophira Eisenberg

Biz and Theresa wonder, “Where do party favors go to die?” The answer? Your house. Kids love them, we hate them, and we admit to fully participating in the madness by buying them and giving them out at our own kids' parties. Maybe giving kids $1 when they leave the party is the cheaper and more environmentally friendly way to go! Plus, Biz lets go of something big, Theresa gives herself the silent treatment, and we talk with comedian and host of NPR’s Ask Me Another, Ophira Eisenberg, about having a baby later in life and letting the truths we set for ourselves be changeable.

You can catch Ophira's hilarious NPR show Ask Me Another every Friday. Don't forget to follow her on Twitter@OphiraE and definitely go watch her standup special Inside Joke.
