The Lighthouse | S2E10

The ThingPod crew survived the No Retreat, No Surrender watch along and live to tell the tale! In this episode, we recap the Golden Globes shenanigans, discuss the genius of Dave Chappelle on the heels of his Mark Twain prize acceptance, and tend to a mixed bag of Things of the Week.

Finally, for the Thing of the Week (and maybe year?) we dive deep on the brilliant, Lovecraftian madness that is David Eggers instant classic “The Lighthouse”. How long have we been on this pod…Five weeks…Two days…Where are we? Tune in and help us to recollect, ya sea dogs!

The Rise of Skywalker | S2E9

Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in! The ThingPod boys are back for one more episode of 2019. They cover a wild week of Things Just In. From Eddie Murphy back on SNL to the quick and dirty on Netflix’s The Witcher, to a whole cornucopia of podcasts about everything from Godfather 2 to the possibility of another American Civil War?!

Finally, our wayward Wookies hop back into the Millennium Falcon one last time to recap the Thing of the Week; Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. They discuss their reactions, fanboy out, and finally say goodbye to Star Wars aka “Peak Thing.”

This episode of The THINGpod is brought to you by the podcast Laughing in the Dark with Sara Jones.
