In other site news I will formally hold off from announcing a return to daily updates, but December will be filled to the brim with content. I’ve been busting my backside to track down some of the best young independent talent today and conduct in-depth interviews with them. Heck, just yesterday alone I probably spent more hours in the day interview wrestlers than not. Their stories are engaging and these performers have careers full of promise. Expect a whopping three interviews per week with talent across the globe for the month of December!

Finally, I am opening the site up just a little bit. For the first time in months The Johnson Transcript is accepting new writers! To apply just send one to three writing sample(s) to dcj2112@columbia.edu.
