The 18th Clash National High School Wrestling Duals got going on January 3 at Rochester Community & Technical College's Regional Sports Center. Today on The Guillotine Grapevine, we get an insight into the relevance of the tournament, its impact on Minnesota and the Rochester area as well as get insight from sponsors, visiting coaches and locals familiar with the event.

Today's show features Al Venz, a parent from Farmington and the host of the Al and Josh Show podcast, Punahou School (Hawaii) associate head coach Maika Nagata, Waverly-Shell Rock (Iowa) head coach Eric Whitcombe, event sponsor and program hustler Mike Busch of Mike Busch State Farm, and former Rochester Post-Bulletin Sports Editor Ben Pherson.
