Championshiop Podcast: Mid-Atlantic TV, January 16, 1982
The new episode of the "Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast" dropped this past Wednesday (which appears to be the day this thing will drop regularly), and features a look at the Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling episode from January 16, 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.)

Sempervive provides an amazing amount of detail and context to the wrestlers appearing at the time, where they've been and where they are going next. That detail really takes you back to that time in wrestling from a broader standpoint. Sempervive also does a great job in picking up on subtle little things happening on the show in context of the broader story being told. Some of these things might slip by unnoticed if watching the shows "cold" without the context.

We are enjoying this weekly deep dive into each of these Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling epeisodes and encourage you to check it out if you haven't already done so.

Also available are the first two shows covering the first two episodes of 1982. Also, a special "Prelude Episode" that set the stage for the year 1982 and things to come and a "bonus" episode looking back at Starrcade '84 that is not to be missed!

Previous Episodes:
January 2, 1982
