On this edition of the PVDcast, I sit down with independent author and comic book creator, Stephen Hines. Based in Dayton, Ohio, Stephen has penned a young-adult novel called Hocus Focus; as well as creating a plethora of indie comic books, such as Valedictorian USA, Cracker Stacker and Zombie Fabulous. Stephen gives a sneak peek at his new project, SMK (Soccer Mom Killer) and we also talk about our shared reverence for Garth Ennis and Watchmen. It’s a fun episode that is sure to delight!
“Hot Commodity” Matt Mason returns to the PVDcast after a very, very long absence. Matt is always a good guest & we always have a good time, as evident by the conversation jumping from topic to topic! We do manage to discuss quite a bit of wrestling, including Matt’s connection to New Ohio Wrestling (https://www.facebook.com/newohiowrestling). Also crammed into this episode are some stories from S.P.A.C.E.& my thoughts on the most recent WWE PPV, Battleground!
When one thinks about tough competitors in the squared circle, the name Shank Dorsey is often mentioned in the discussion. I sit down with Shank Dorsey to speak about his time in the IWA, FIW & the other places he plied his trade. Shank is quite open & honest about his career in pro wrestling, including his long absence from the industry. The episode closes out with a conversation about his new project, New Ohio Wrestling (https://www.facebook.com/newohiowrestling). A must listen for any wrestling fan in the Central Ohio area!
