Big Egg Podcasting Universe: Episode 2 Show Notes

Greetings grapple fans, and welcome to episode 2 of Big Egg Podcasting Universe. Here’s where you’ll find sources, shameless plugs and visual cues which illustrate the things we fail to communicate via audio.

Where to Watch

This week we focus on the opening ceremony and the lead into Big Egg. It’s a relatively short segment of the show as we have it, but you’ll find it at the start of the video. Watch on Youtube

When we get onto the matches we will not be tackling them in the order they appear on the card, so I’ll include timestamps for each one we’re covering in the notes.

Joshi Link Exchange

After episode 1 I set up a place where we can all swap links, match recommendations, podcasts and everything else to share and learn more about our beloved joshi. 

You’ve sent in match recommendations, like Ayako Hamada vs KANA from Shimmer 50 (a belter), and links to very helpful resources like Joshi Puro Translations. Have a look and tell us what else you think joshi fans should know about.
