Comics, Food, and DragonKing Dark!

We have some great new articles up at When It Was Cool.  Joseph Perry takes a look at the old 1960's Dell Comic book series The Outer Limits issue 5 -

Tonya from When It Was Cool has put up a couple great new recipes lately too.  A real flavorful and lightly spicy sausage and rice skillet dinner - and then you can try this creamy dessert afterwards - chocolate eclair! -

I hope you will stop by the When It Was Cool Website and check out all the new improvements.  I have made the front page a lot easier to navigate and our various social media links easier to find.  We also continue to add more Patreons and I am hopefully adding even more content very soon.  If you aren't a Patreon supporter you are missing quite a few great podcasts and many digital downloads.  It really is a great deal even at the $5 level, there is so much stuff to download whether or not you are a wrestling fan.  It won't be long until I have the complete run of the old DragonKing Press Newsletter on the Patreon feed, as well as, the audio companions for each episode.

Of course, the entire back catalog of the DragonKing Dark and DragonKing Darker podcasts are on the Patreon feed as well.  Thank you so much for supporting us at When It Was Cool.

Let's talk as friends for a minute...

Hello!  I'm Karl Stern from the When It Was Cool website and probably half a dozen podcasts you may or may not listen to on a regular basis.  I'm just a normal guy with a normal family probably just like you.  In fact, this picture is my wife (Tonya from When It Was Cool) and I just hanging out in a giant chair at Jerry Lawler's restaurant on Beale Street in Memphis, TN.

Years (and years, and years) ago, I began writing a small little pro wrestling newsletter.  Eventually it grew into a larger pro wrestling newsletter called the DragonKing Press Newsletter all about wrestling history.  During that time I had a pretty good size pro wrestling website dealing with wrestling history and interviewing the stars we all grew up with.  Later, I merged all of that into Bryan Alvarez's fantastic website which later merged with Dave Meltzer's incredible Wrestling Observer, creating the best pro wrestling news and information site on the internet.

I still work the…

Death to ads! Why When It Was Cool removed Amazon from our website.

If you listen to virtually any podcast you have heard the plugs over and over again - "Please use our links to buy through Amazon!"  For several years, way before we launched When It Was Cool, back when I was only doing the DragonKingKarl blog, I used Amazon ads.  I have never made significant money off of them.  I recently reviewed my Amazon payments for the last few years and found that, despite buying all my own products via my links, that I had earned virtually no money from their affiliate programs.

I decided today to, once and for all, kill the ads.  Aside from a few that will remain in the archives on individual article pages, I removed all of the them from the main page and will not be including them in future articles.  Why?

They were a waste of time for our website. Perhaps you might do well with them but they have never performed for us.  While they are easy to insert and easy to code but my time is better spent providing content for Patreon than wasting my time se…

Are you a fit for the When It Was Cool Podcast Network?

Hello podcast hobbyist! Recording a podcast is no problem -> just have a topic, record it, done!  Not so fast!  You need to upload it to a service to host it, then you need to get the word out, it helps if you have a website so you need to build that too.  Want it on iTunes? Well that's even more work... and you'll need art for that which conforms to their specifications.  Suddenly, the hobby isn't so "fun" anymore, it's more like work.
Check out our various Patreon levels.  If you are a podcast hobbyist who records just one show (maybe even less!) per month then maybe we can host it directly at When It Was Cool!  Maybe you want to get a little more serious about it and record more!  We have packages for that too. When you become a Patreon at a level that includes a podcast package, you not only get the HUNDREDS of digital downloads that we put on the feed (we think that alone is worth a membership) but you can also take advantage of our podcast hosting se…
