From 2013-2015 Robert Winfree hosted Everyone Loves a Bad Guy, an eclectic podcast dedicated to villainy across media. Robert and Pat Mullin takes a look at one of the all time great wrestling villains, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Original airdate July 25, 2014 for this Rowdy Roddy Piper Villain Discussion.
Roderick George Toombs (April 17, 1954 – July 31, 2015), better known as “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, was a Canadian professional wrestler, amateur wrestler, and actor.
In professional wrestling, Piper was best known to international audiences for his work with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) between 1984 and 2000. Although he was Canadian, Piper was billed as coming from Glasgow and was known for his signature kilt and bagpipe entrance music; this was because of his Scottish heritage. Piper earned the nicknames “Rowdy” and “Hot Rod” by displaying his trademark “Scottish” short temper, spontaneity, and quick wit. According to The Daily Telegraph, he is “considered by many to be the greatest ‘heel’ (or villain) wrestler ever”.

About Radulich in Broadcasting’s Beginnings
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fans Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally, Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever-growing lists of podcasts on the Network called Damn You Hollywood.
