A Conversation with Writer Jared Yates Sexton About Life and Professional Wrestling Part Two

This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features writer Jared Yates Sexton.  This is the second installment of a two-part conversation. The first episode can be listened to here.

In this week's installment of the podcast, Jared and Chauncey talk about their shared love of professional wrestling, do some fantasy booking for the WWE, explore how the basics of good fiction writing can be applied to improve the WWE's current story lines, and have some fun reminiscing about the glory days of the (then) WWF and WCW back in the 1980s and 1990s.

During this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey shares his experience marching with Black Lives Matter in Chicago and has the good fortune to interview a white woman who started out saying "All Lives Matter" and was then persuaded to join the protest. Unfortunately, this positive interaction was balanced out by how Chauncey encountered a drunk, racist, and very loud Donald Trump supporter at a local bar several days later.

Chauncey also offers some thoughts on the Nice, France terror attacks and the dangers of radical religion and gives an update on what he learned from the doctor about his magical and amazing blood.
