The thought of a WWE superstar talking for over an hour about a variety of topics might not appeal to every WWE fan; Talk is Jericho, however, is ideal for every member of the WWE Universe.

Jericho is no stranger to other media platforms outside of WWE. He is the lead singer of heavy metal band Fozzy as well as having made several TV and film appearances as well as hosting music shows.

Media man

The idea of a podcast for Y2J therefore has undoubtedly been proven a success. His eclectic mix of interviews with top names in professional wrestling, music, comedy and the odd plug make for an undeniably great show.

Given WWE's current dominance of social media and their high focus on it, it would be understandable if Talk is Jericho would come as part of the WWE Network or some form of payment would be needed to download it.

This though, is what makes the podcast even better - it is free to download and every episode is available to listen to at the touch of a button from podcastone.com.

Jericho's approach to interviewing the wrestling Superstars he has on the show is so personal and relaxed, listening to it makes WWE and other wrestling industries seem almost completely realistic.

Bully Ray 

One of the funniest conversations the 43-year-old had was with TNA's Bully Ray (formerly Bubba Ray of the Dudley Boyz) at the end of May of this year.

The pair were discussing a match which took place years ago involving the Raw Roulette stipulation when a spot which involved both of them went wrong and left Bully Ray with concussion.

Determined to continue with the match, Jericho proceeds to explain how he told Bully he needed to climbs a ladder with his response simply being: "how do you climb a ladder?"

Bully then says how a couple of the other Superstars involved in the match told him he needed to take a Van Daminator which resulted in him questioning who he was meant to take it from.

After this Jericho insisted to Bully that he needed to carry out a Bubba Bomb but one of the former WWE Tag Team Champions was so concussed he had to ask Y2J how to carry out his own move.

Random anecdotes about matches like this as well as comments on life outside of WWE enable listeners of Talk is Jericho to gain an insight to professional wrestling that they would not necessarily have had.

If none of this necessarily appeals to you then the fact Jericho often sings Mark Henry's theme music while playing a cow bell as well as carrying out other musical interludes should be enough to tempt you.
