Episode 013 - That Little Midget Bastard Hornswoggle

December 3, 2019

This week Sean gets together with Dylan Postl who played Hornswoggle on WWE TV for ten years, including an incredible angle as Vince McMahon's illegitimate son. Sean talks about Dylan's position in the company and how being a little person came into play, other than his having a huge ass.

Dylan also became a dad at a young age while working the road, and he's very open about the inherent difficulties. He and Sean also go down memory lane, reminiscing about the shows they did together for Kayfabe Commentaries and how WWE superstars infiltrated and got prank questions on the YouShoot show.

Also, just what is art? Are we seriously going there? Hell, yeah.

Episode 012 - Radio Gunk host and Howard Stern insider, Monique

November 26, 2019

Media personality Monique has built an empire of cantankerous Howard Stern critics out of disgruntled former listeners of the radio legend's once revolutionary show. The Radio Gunk podcast has featured former members of the Stern show and became the one-stop-shop for inside info about the Stern universe.

Sean is a long-suffering former Stern devotee and gleefully attaches himself to Monique's teat, drinking up the secret, inside tales of the show's demise and mistreatment of employees. Sean shares the story of his trip up to the Stern show to promote the Iron Sheik Roast. Listen as he and Monique talk podcasts, sleep aides, and generally bicker with one another.

Plus, Sean explores whether the media gatekeepers should come back, answers your Twitter questions, and brings you another episode of his most unique podcast!

November 19, 2019

You never know exactly where Sean's interviews are going to go, and this is no exception. What begins as a discussion of Terri's dissatisfaction with her appearance on "Vince Russo's Attitude" shoot program, soon turns personal. Terri discusses raising her daughter Dakota while working, as well as the failure of her marriage to Dustin.

Sean and Terri then go even deeper, examining Terri's distressing pattern in the men in her life, tracing things back as far back as her father. This is as open and honest as you've ever heard this Southern Belle.

Also today, the signature stroke of the artist and your Twitter questions.

Episode 010 - Quoth the Raven

Episode 010 - Quoth the Raven

November 12, 2019

ECW legend Raven joins Sean to cover ECW's 25th anniversary and his evaluation of Tod Gordon and Paul Heyman's roles may surprise you. This great wrestling mind and card carrying member of MENSA talks the reasons for ECW's success, as well as where he would have fit in the wrestling world without the federation.

As you know, Sean is fascinated with Raven's childhood, having grown up as the son of the editor of the National Enquirer, so naturally he tries to dig up as much dirt on that as possible. It wasn't easy growing up under Paul Levy and the effects on Raven were long lasting. You'll hear about Raven's foray into podcasting and his heart attack while doing Raven's Restler Rescue, a makeover show Sean was producing. (Yes, heart attack.)

Plus, more film talk and a tribute to Marcus Eisenstein. Who? Find out in today's episode!

Episode 009 - Hotel Scarface Author Roben Farzad

Episode 009 - Hotel Scarface Author Roben Farzad

November 5, 2019

1980's Miami was the epicenter of glamor, flash, and an expensive white powder flowing through the country. For several years, one place in Coconut Grove became the hive for all the players, from the Cuban smugglers, to rock stars, and even the stars of Miami Vice. Only after the cameras stopped rolling, Don and Philip Michael weren't busting the real life gangsters who partied with them.

Author Roben Farzad chronicled this time at the Mutiny Club at the Hotel Mutiny in his book Hotel Scarface--a kick ass journey into the real Scarface scene in Miami. You might even recognize the people and places in the book, and with good reason--Scarface screenwriter Oliver Stone stayed at the Mutiny while writing the film, even accidentally leaving a reference to the Mutiny Club in the script instead of the fictionalized Babylon Club!

Hear how Roben put together this real life story of opulence and decadence in this week's Kayfabe: Stories You're Not Supposed to Hear!

Episode 006 - Little Brother, Johnny Candido

October 15, 2019

Chris Candido's younger brother, Johnny, joins Sean for a trip down memory lane, covering both Chris and best friend Balls Mahoney. Both Chris and Balls died at young ages after getting entangled in drugs, and Johnny was right beside them throughout their struggles.

Chris's foray into self-medication arose out of his coping with his infamous and tumultuous relationship with Tammy "Sunny" Sytch, and Johnny was a sounding board for his brother during that time. Johnny tells what he saw during that time in this revealing and touching interview...filled with stories you're not supposed to hear...this week on Sean Oliver's Kayfabe.

Did you think all the interviews in the classic wrestling magazines of old were real? How about the Face to Face interview gimmick? And don't even get started on the monthly rankings and PWI Awards!

Join the wrestling world's most famous journalist and editor-in-chief for so many of those publications, Bill Apter, as Sean goes over all those details.

Hear Sean hold Apter's feet to the flame on working the readers of the great mags of yore. Plus, it's confessional time as Sean opens the iPhone music app and reveals the guilty pleasures within.
