Chris Jericho Talks His Love of the "Talk is Jericho" Podcast

In a recent interview with AMHNetwork.com, to promote his band Fozzy, Chris Jericho had the following to say regarding his "Talk is Jericho" podcast:

"It's something that I've always loved to do, I had a radio show for a while but the podcast started back in December. This week is our 50th episode which is really cool, and I mean I just really love doing it. It's so versatile and diverse, you know? It's not a wrestling podcast, it's not a music podcast, it's just whatever I find interesting. If I have the opportunity to talk to someone, I'll do that. Just like with the Snooki episode I loved it and she was great but there were so many people saying "I'll never listen to this because Snooki's on it!" and I'm just like, "shut up!" (laughs). If I'm doing it and I'm the host then trust me that every guest is going to be good in one way or another because if they weren't then guess what? I wouldn't have them on. That's part of having a big fan base, people are always going to question things that you do. There can be nine people that love it and one person that absolutely hates it and that's okay, it's good to have an opinion. I love doing the podcast, I love being in the band and if you dig Chris Jericho then you'll dig the projects that I'm doing including every episode of my podcast. It's always a blast seeing who I can get on my show and seeing how people react. Obviously some shows do better than others but at this point they're all doing pretty good, so it's really gratifying."
