I'm so excited to finally have my friend Arda Ocal on the show. Arda is a lifelong metal and pro wrestling fan, and we discuss his fandom journey in both recreations and also his incredible journey from intern at a Canadian cable channel to a full-time WWE announcer. Arda shares some great stories from his time at WWE and also offers some top-notch advice for people looking to make it as an announcer, and honestly, the advice can be applied to anybody looking to climb a corporate ladder.

Check out previous Squared Circle Pit interviews about wrestling with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, Jamey JastaEvery Time I Die's Andy Williams, Zakk Wylde, Killswitch Engage's Mike D, Converge's Jacob Bannon, Neurosis' Scott Kelly, and more.
