WLW Studios lauched their first podcast the “Midnight Jury” in March of 2013. The show is dedicated to all things Pop Culture, Horror and some Pro Wrestling from the 80’s and 90’s.
The shows hosts, Mike Noringonger and Adam Henning, grew up in these times and have spent almost 60 combined years amassing their impressive libraries of VHS, DVD, and collectibles from these decades. Both have worked with pro wrestling companies from New York to Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and bring you a no nonsense view of the business, never worrying about offending anyone. They also interview and work with directors and crew from all over the world of horror.
The Jury has appeared as on screen performers for RAGE Pro Wrestling, where they shot a pilot for MavTV, and also on WLNY 55 in NY, NJ, and CT and PhillyCAM in Philadelphia for Pro Wrestling Syndicate TV. The Midnight Jury has appeared LIVE and broadcast from PWS, CZW, WSU and RPW. In July of 2015 the Jury was able to broadcast from the legendary ECW Arena in South Philadelphia.
Mike and Adam are usually joined by co-host Calvin Brodie, who each brings his own expertise to the show. One of Cal’s specialties includes his knowledge on the world of comics, and you will usually find him in studio for those and many of our horror and pop culture reviews. On the other side, what show would be complete without the female side of things? Sydney joins the guys sporadically and brings her beauty and great sense of humor to the table, along with her patience in dealing with a bunch of rowdy fan boys, as she shows up on random shows that peak her interest.
Lastly, Tony Brockadeda and Joey “Justice” Mandella join for MANY episodes bringing their own specialties to the table. Tony is a proud board gamer, and loves traveling back to the 80s and 90s to review pop culture films. Joey has called action ringside with Mike at many wrestling events, and is the only Jury member to still consider himself a “mark” for pro wresting of today when his fellow Jury members have fallen off as fans of the current product.
Guest interviews are rare, but have included Sean Whalen from People Under the Stairs, Twister, That Thing You Do!, Men In Black, Can’t Hardly Wait and so much more, WWE Hall of Famer Jake “the Snake” Roberts, WCW Tag Champion Buff Bagwell, ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer, TNA’s the Dollhouse and some horror legends such as Ari Lehman the “First Jason” and Ed Gale who played “Chucky” in Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, Bride of Chucky and “Howard” in Howard the Duck.
Every week we give you a TV Show theme to bring you back to the 80’s and 90’s, Adam will feature forgotten musical classics on his segment “Vinylly Rediscovered” and sometimes Mike will hit you with his “5 fun facts in under 2 minutes”. It’s 2 hours a week that you can sit back, relax and let us transport you back to the “Last Old School Generation” of the 80’s and 90’s.
