With special guest Bill Hanstock, J. and Collision pull on their boots and step inside the squared circle to wrestle with pro-wrestling lifer “Hardcore” Bob Holly’s memoir, The Hardcore Truth. Holly was known for not pulling his punches in the ring, and he definitely brings the same approach to these pages. Even if you don’t care about pro wrestling, this one is a good journey to take, a book about a young man who discovers that all the machinery making modern television isn’t so open-hearted, it’s coldly charted. He wanted to believe in the freedom of wrestling, but glittering prizes and endless compromises shattered his illusions of integrity.

Also! We announce our Contest Winner in a thrilling crossover between our Letters and Dramatic Reading segments!
