Spawned from the minds of Brenton Harris and Mike Speakman is an inspirational/entertainment podcast, RADULTS.The podcast showcases people who have said “fuck that” to the idea that growing up and becoming an adult meant giving up on their dreams. Guests include musicians, authors, comic creators, tattooists, artists, screenwriters just to name a few. These guests maintain the passion of their youth, while surviving as an adult (some even have kids and houses, even a mortgage!).

Episodes

Join Radults host Brenton as he flaps his gums with one of pro-wrestling's biggest personalities and the man who ignited the Monday Night Wars, the one, the only, Eric Bischoff! 

The Eric Bischoff story is extraordinary: In the mid-80s, Bischoff entered the wrestling community as a “C-Team Announcer,” and a few short years later, he was President of Turner Broadcasting’s World Championship Wrestling. He signed Hulk Hogan and started Turner Network Television’s Monday Night Nitro, created the nWo, and beat Vince McMahon’s Monday Night RAW head-to-head in Monday Night Wars 83 consecutive times. Eric Bischoff can now be heard on his weekly podcast 83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff.  The show features Bischoff and popular wrestling podcaster Conrad Thompson taking a deep dive into the highs and lows of Bischoff’s unparalleled success in the wrestling business!

Eric Bischoff is bringing his 83 WEEKS WITH ERIC BISCHOFF 'NO BRAG JUST FACTS' tour to Australia and was kind enough to spend 20 minutes with Radults talking about his wild life in the wrestling business. 

Episode topics include breaking into the business, the Monday Night Wars, working as an onscreen talent, missed opportunities, landmark achievements, evolution, his transition to podcasting, his insight on what it takes to make it in the wrestling business and if he could play Dr. Frankenstein and genetically engineer a wrestler - what three wrestlers that creation would consist of, he even cuts a damn "go home" promo! Thank POD it's Monday folks!
