Host Jesse Collings (@JesseCollings) is joined by music journalist, journalism professor and pro wrestling fan Maura Johnston (@Maura) to discuss how the world of pro wrestling fits into pop culture in 2023.

They talk about how changes in pop culture have made it impossible for a Stone Cold Steve Austin-type star to emerge, how nostalgia in wrestling mimics nostalgia in TV, movies and music, the end of monoculture and how promotions are impacted by the rapidly evolving world of entertainment.
