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.
