Getting back into the swing of things with the Short Time Wrestling Podcast and Episode 302. This episode, I'm going to look south to Iowa (that's how you know it's cold) and talk with Troy Banning, the Sports Editor at the Freeman Daily Journal in Webster City, Iowa and Tony Hager from IAwrestle.com and Takedown Wrestling Media.

The topic of media access and credentialing has come up in Iowa regarding the state championships in a number of sports, but as we zero in on the popular state wrestling tournament, we've learned that a media entity, not a state association, will make the call in regards to credentialing as well as the move away from a press row, sending journalists and photographers away from the matside norm and back to hallways to watch on TV's.

This smells bad and we'll get Tony and Troy's take on the questionable circumstances around this “guideline” change.
