SI Media Podcast interviews Conrad Thompson

Richard Deitsch interviewed our friend Conrad Thompson on his SI Media Podcast for Sports Illustrated. It is a fascinating look behind the scenes of the enormously successful podcasts that Conrad developed and co-hosts with Bruce Prichard (Something to Wrestle With) and Tony Schiavone (What Happened When Monday) on the MLW Radio Network.

As most of you know, Conrad was an instrumental part of helping me research and put together my book "Big Gold" about wrestling's most famous and storied championship belt. 

This podcast is also a nice look at Conrad's background and how a Huntsville, Alabama mortgage banker wound up developing two of the nation's most popular pro-wrestling podcasts (ans two of the most popular sports podcasts, period.)

Deitsch and producer Lou Pellegrino do an outstanding job with this bonus edition of the SI Media Podcast. We've embedded it above via Soundcloud, or you can download it on all major podcasting platforms.  - Dick Bourne
