Episode 70 – Wrestling With Fatherhood

Happy New Year!

We want to thank you for sticking with us for our 3rd year of podcasting! There is a lot of great content already planned for 2019 so BUCKLE UP!

We want to kick things off with a Powerbomb of an episode here on the podcast!

In this episode of The DTALKS Podcast Joe talks to former WCW President, WWE personality and current co-host of the popular wrestling podcast: 83 WeeksEric Bischoff.

Joe and Eric touched on multiple topics throughout the course of Eric’s career but honed in on exactly what types of trials and tribulations he went through being a parent while also running a high-profile business. Eric dug down deep to let us know how he was able to “have it all” and having an equal partner in the equation is the main reason he was able to get it done.

It’s a fascinating dive into the world of professional wrestling where we, as viewers, only experience a tiny piece of it. Most people don’t stop and wonder how these individuals are able to parent, travel, perform, etc. all the time. While Eric’s experience is unique in that he was running the company he still highlights how it’s nearly impossible to parent alone in this situation.

Sit back, relax and get ready for the first episode of what will be a stellar year for The DTALKS Podcast.
