RUSH HOUR with Courtney Rush, Episode 2: w/ Kellie Skater
It’s taken a while to get Episode 2 of RUSH HOUR together, but time zones and various international jet-setting going on since the turn of the year, it’s the best we could do. For this episode, your intrepid host is joined by fellow Spoontopian and Japanese roommate, “Rate Tank” Kellie Skater. Rush & Skater talk their time in Japan together earlier in the year before getting down to the big questions regarding the mystique of wrestling. What’s wrong, what’s right and what’s fake? Courtney asks whether the pro-feminist push in wrestling has become ever so slightly sexist in the other direction, the dynamic duo touch on their respective SHIMMER weekends last month, and finish up with more “Chaos in Japan” talk, including drinking games with Yumi Ohka. As Yumi would say… “No problem!” Oh, and Courtney reads out the best bit of feedback she’s ever received. Get behind the wheel for RUSH HOUR 2, exclusively here on!
