Conrad Thompson joins the podcast this week! Conrad has put together Starrcast, a wrestling and podcast convention that will be in Las Vegas Memorial Day weekend coinciding with AEW’s Double or Nothing. Check out lineup and ticket information here, and/or stream it live or on demand on Fite TV. We discussed:
- What he’s most looking forward to during Starrcast weekend, including a roast of his father-in-law Ric Flair.
- The podcast industry: How does he track his metrics, what the strategy is in releasing long episodes instead of segmenting them to shorter bits, and how the ad sales work.
- Tony Schiavone’s hard sell on WCW PPVs
- How he decides when to press Eric Bischoff and Bruce Prichard when they are being evasive, and when to lay off.
- The state of the mortgage business right now — where we are in the cycle, millennial habits, difference between regions, etc.
- Who would he pick as the four horsemen out of all current wrestlers today?
Hope you enjoy!
