Hi everyone Mo here, & I figure I’ll just take a little time to tell you about us.
We Talk Podcasts got started because Addie and myself kept on saying to each other we should do a wrestling podcast, which eventually became We Talk Wrestling.
We Talk Wrestling was soon the loudest, crudest & most outrageous wrestling podcast on the net, and pretty quickly got a large following for it’s ability to talk about issues other shows would cover weeks later, strong historical & current topics, and of course mom jokes. Lots and lots of mom jokes.
People were listening, laughing and arguing with us.
During this time we found out Diamond Dallas Page was coming to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (we’re in Calgary, Alberta). We did get a fantastic interview with DDP that we recorded for the podcast as well as YouTube. (Here)
The cameraman during that shoot was my long time friend, and fellow comic book reader, Brett. He and I used to own a comic book shop together in the early nineties, where we met and became friends with one of our other hosts Chris, who was a customer of ours. Before that, we were customers of our fellow host, Keith.
At the Expo, Brett and I decided to try and get some other interviews with actors and comic book people just to see what we could do with it down the road. We managed to talk to some really interesting stars, and soon parlayed that into We Talk Comics. From there was We Talk Fantasy Football, since Brett and I have played that together for years, and so the We Talk Podcasts family was born.
