It’s Go Fact Yourself…. IN SPAAAAACE! Or at least with a lot of discussion about space, plus tons of comedy and trivia!

Gaby Dunn is the author of the book Bad With Money and the host of the podcast of the same name. That makes her something of an authority on personal finance. And her findings on commerce are supported by some conspiracy theories that are equally insightful.

Opposite Gaby is comedian Dwayne Perkins! His star has risen in recent years with him getting his own comedy special. That success has earned him a lot of love from his peers… and just a hint of resentment as well. You can find Dwayne on the podcast Movie Night.

Our guests will talk about money, sitcoms and iconic supporting actors.

Tights and Fights Ep. 150: Tights and Fyter Fest

| 0 comments

This week, Hal, Danielle and Lindsey discuss AEW’s sophomore event Fyter Fest. While, there was tons of great wrestling and promos throughout the entire show, there was also an unprotected chair-shot to the head Cody Rhodes that overshadowed a lot of the other good things on the card.

But that’s not to say there wasn’t stuff to be excited about too. MJF, Jungle Boy, The Lucha Bros. and others had great showings and we’ll discuss what stood out to us… and what we’re still not sure about.

Plus, it appears that WWE has finally revealed what their creative response to AEW’s presence will be going forward. Late last week, it was announced that Paul Heyman will be responsible for the direction of RAW and Eric Bischoff for Smackdown.

We’ll look at what changes are evident for the future of the product, whether we’re into them and question their newfound desire for minor obscenities from promos and Corey Graves.

All of this… plus one more look at the G1 Climax at the stories that will come to a head at wrestling’s biggest tournament of the summer.

Hosted by Hal Lublin Danielle Radford, and Lindsey Kelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Tights and Fights Ep. 149: Tappin’ Titles w/ Emily Pratt

This week, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by Emily Pratt She’s a wrestling writer and reporter for Uproxx.

There’s a lot of things to be really excited about right now, including the G1 Climax! The tournament kicks off next month and the card is STACKED! There are plenty of big returns advertised and incredibly talented performers facing throughout. Whether it’s KENTA vs. Ibushi or Okada vs. Archer, expect a lot of geeking out.

On the WWE side, there’s also the prospect of Samoa Joe taking on Kofi Kingston that we’re really into. Plus Drew Gulak finally capturing the Cruiserweight title. But there’s also a lot that we’re unsure about. Why is Shane McMahon involved in so many stories? And how much faith do we have that WWE is going to tastefully portray Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch’s relationship?
