Sarah and Dana joined us for our fortieth episode to chat two great rivalries in TJPW and Stardom - Maki Itoh & Mizuki and Tam Nakano and Natsupoi respectively. Our guests walk you through the histories, matches, and important moments of those rivalries before we cap things off by discussing gender in fandom.
