“For 13 years, Two Geeks Talking’s host Kurt Sasso
has been interviewing Entertainment personalities through an honest and thought-provoking show called Two Geeks Talking.
In August 2008, Kurt changed the podcast landscape when he started TGT Webcomics. Since then the name has changed to Two Geeks Talking but the concept and in-depth interviews of guests has not changed. We have featured in-depth conversations with iconic personalities such as Jessica Nigri, Gavin Free, Kris Holden-Ried, Allison Scagliotti, Vlad Yudin, Erika Eleniak, Missy Peregrym, Brian Tochi, Psycatt, Maggie Castle and Melanie Leshman. It became a worldwide success, with over 600,000 views on YouTube and over 500,000 downloads as a podcast.”
Below is an interview with Dirk Manning, who wrote a fantastic graphic novel about the life of current AEW, and former WCW personality, Tony Schiavone.
Growing up, Tony Schiavone was the voice of my childhood. I would stay up until two am to watch WCW Worldwide Wrestling on the local CBS affiliate. Tony called all those matches every week. It’s been really nice to see him get a second act on television after being off it for twenty years. At one point between gigs on TV, Tony was working at a Starbucks in Atlanta.
Crazy, right? Except, that kind of thing is way more common than you would think in the entertainment business. Sure it’s glitz, but these days it does NOT pay all the bills.
