Wrestler Colt Cabana is our guest. AKA Scott Colton, Colt grew up in Deerfield dreaming of one day becoming a professional wrestler. Colt has amassed a huge following through his infectious comedic stage persona and his popular behind-the-scenes podcast The Art of Wrestling. We talk about his career and the wonderfully weird world of professional wrestling. 

Colt also has a recent autobiographical children’s book, Wrestling Dreams, written with author and illustrator Erica Weisz. Erica, herself a Deerfield resident, joins Colt at the end of the show to talk about the writing process and the message they hope to impart to young readers. You can check out Wrestling Dreams from the library in print and digital formats.

You can learn more about Erica’s writing and illustrating at mrsweiszbooks.com and find the book and more from Colt Cabana at coltcabana.com.
