Episode 33 – Into the Wild

It’s a special Throwback episode this week on The THING! Join Matt and Eric for a discussion of Sean Penn’s 2007 modern classic Into the Wild. Charting the story from Jon Krakauer’s book of the same name, the film follows the short but fully lived life of Christopher McCandless. It’s not just an excellent adventure film, it’s a modern meditation on materialism, companionship, and what it means to be a human on this planet earth. (hint: Money and power are an illusion and happiness is only real when shared). Come share with us as we celebrate this truly excellent film.

Episode 32 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

The Guardians of The THING, Eric and Matt, ride again! They recap the highlights of the week with some comedy talk, look ahead to some upcoming THINGs just in, and “take on” the outstanding new episode of The Leftovers. Then they join StarLord and the crew for the new summer kickoff smash wam-bam hit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Come on in and join us and, by the way, does anyone have some tape?

Episode 31 – The Best of 2017 (so far…)

The guys are back in the bunker to review highlights from the week and reflect on the recent passing of a couple legends who have made massive contributions to creative culture. They make a stop Down Under for the weekly discussion on the Leftovers, and then dig in to some of the high water marks so far this year in film, music, podcasts, and more. What are we doing? Just preventing the Apocalypse…come join in!
