The Thing returns this week with our first ever music episode! Join Matt and Eric as they count down their top 5 current acts and delve into what makes music the perfect vehicle for finding The Thing. They also revisit Will Arnett’s groundbreaking Netflix series Flaked and spend some moments remembering a few greats who recently left us: Garry Shandling and Jim Harrison. This week’s episode is brought to you by our friends at Wandering Soul Touring company, check out their website at www.wanderdingsoultc.com!
Eric and Matt talk about the continued Judd Apatow comedy onslaught, get “Throwback Thingy” with the late and legendary Elliott Smith, and debut the new “Thing Just In” segment. The main topic this week is Podcasts… Thats right folks, a podcast about podcasts (cue Inception “BRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAHHHHMMMMMM!!”). This weeks episode is brought you by the new pulpy crime novel “Coyote” by Bran Gustafson available now at brangustafson.com.
First comedy episode! We talk good/bad movies and Matt recommends a great/horrible “Throwback Thing” of the week, recap Louis C.K.’S surprise Horace and Pete premiere episode, and go on our first weekly wade through the comedy universe. This week’s episode is brought to you by a surprise spring break sponsor that you just may remember for the rest of your life!
Eric and Matt talk musical common denominators and “parallel thinking” in comedy, welcome a new sponsor to help you wash that stress right out of your hair, and revel in the subversive greatness that is Mr. Robot. So hack into it? Ok, I’ll see myself out…
