In this corner, we have the spectacular J. Gonzo, artist and writer of “La Mano Del Destino”, a comic set in a fictional 1960’s Mexico about a supernatural luchador bent on revenge. He discusses all the thought and detail presented in the color and printing of this retro story, along with the history of Mexican wrestling, the importance of masks to identity, why we can’t see the El Santo movies anymore, masculinity and machismo in Latino culture, and who gets to use Batman’s weight room.

The second half of the episode is devoted to Martin Casaus, better known as “Marty the Moth” on the El Rey Network’s popular show, “Lucha Underground”. He talks about crafting his maniacal character, what makes “Lucha Underground” so much more plot driven than other wrestling shows, why wrestlers are such savvy vloggers, his injuries on WWE’s “Tough Enough” encouraging people’s fitness journeys and much more.
