Podcast Episode: Mid-Atlantic TV Jan. 2, 1982
The first regular episode of the "Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast" dropped on Thanksgiving Day, and features a look at the Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling episode from January 2, 1982.

Each week, Mike Sempervive and Roman Gomez will review another episode form the series that is currently available in the In-Ring/Territories section of the WWE Network. The show is a production of the Arcadian Vanguard Podcast Network and is available to stream on their website and anywhere else you get your podcasts (such as iTunes, etc.)

What we are enjoying most about the podcast is their providing context to the events taking place, not only in the Mid-Atlantic area, but also in other territories and occasionally the world outside of pro-wrestling.

Also dropping on Thanksgiving Day were the "Prelude Episode," serving as an introduction to the new podcast in general, and a special in-depth look at Starrcade '84.

Mid-Atlantic Wrestling fans will love what Mike Sempervive and Roman Gomez are presenting here, and we at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway look forward to this trip down memory lane each week.
