Eric and Matt are back in your ears to talk about Peaky Blinders, the Breaking Bad Saga, Mister Rogers, and Banksy’s new retail experiment. They also dig in on the Thing of the Week, the cultural phenomenon that is the Joker. Put on a happy face and get ready for a wild ride.
There are two hosts of The Thing podcast. These are their problems.
Your favorite shirt tuckers, Matt and Eric, are back to dig in on some of the latest jolts of The Thing! They discuss new stuff from Sturgill Simpson, folksters the Avett Brothers, Comedian Gulman, and more! Finally, they get into the Thing of the Week: Letterkenny! Sort yourself out and tune in. Time to get to chroin’. Pitter-patter. Ferda!
Our hapless heroes catch up on what they have been up to and discuss some of the outstanding Things in the creative current. Once that nonsense is over, they take us on a spoiler-filled trip back to 60s Hollywood and talk Tarantino’s epic “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” But be warned, this podcast has been registered as a lethal weapon!
Matt goes back out into the wilderness (er, the backyard) to interview Improv Impresario (Improvsario?) and founder of the Good on Paper Improv Troupe David Avis! They talk about the logistics of catching comedy lightning in a bottle, try to pin down the elusive golden era of SNL, and much more. David also talks about the upcoming season of Good on Paper Improv and where you can watch the magic happen. Is this a fun episode? YES…AND you should plug in and give it a listen!

The THING is back with a whirlwhind recap of the past week that includes the Traverse City Film Fest, a marathon run of stand up comedy dates, and a Game of Thrones episode that (hopefully) is building toward some kind of action. Finally, Eric makes a strong pitch to get Matt to get into the theater and see the (1/2) THING of the week, Christopher Nolan’s war epic Dunkirk. Will he go see it…will he not…listen in and find out!
