Olav vs. The News, Part 10
The tenth and final part to Olav vs. the News! It goes without saying that when I started this storyline I didn’t intend for it to take sixth months to tell, but the end result is still the same. I originally though of having Olav go all pro-wrestler on a news talk show when I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, “Common Sense with Dan Carlin.” In it, Dan Carlin talks about his take on news and current events- something I’m normally not that interested in, but he makes it engaging with his unique perspective on things. In an episode late last year, Dan compared pundit shows like the O’Reilly Factor to UFC shows, where the appeal isn’t to be informed, but rather to see the host beat down on his guest in spoken Gladiatorial combat (I’m paraphrasing a lot, but that’s the general idea). Anyway, it seemed like news shows would fit in pretty well with professional wrestlers, and that’s how this all came about! Thanks for reading!
