I haven't listened to the JR one yet, but STWW and WHW have really trailed off. I used to love both, but it seems that Conrad is more concerned now with being a character and "getting his shtick in" (leading Bruce into impressions, dick jokes with Tony, etc.) than discussing whatever the show is they're covering.

When you go back and listen to those old Ric Flair podcasts, Conrad was 1000% better, since he wasn't making everything about him, and was just directing the conversation and keeping Ric on topic. Now, both of these podcasts are mostly Conrad shtick. It's a shame, because I love the concepts on both, it's just that the execution has really gone downhill.

Agreed. The JR podcast is similar to the Flair one, though. One topic and they stick to the point. I think you'd like it

Really liking the new Arn Anderson podcast. Conrad is (so far) not trying to be a character at all, and just sticking to Arn's wrestling stories. Hope it stays that way.

On road trips I stack up Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You, probably my favorite.
