Eric And Matt sound better than they ever have in their lives after a professional upgrade from their new Sound Engineer (and special guest). Matt explains the life decisions that led to a recent…uh…revealing comedy experience, the guys get stoked about some upcoming summer releases, and they check in on the latest delightfully weird episode of The Leftovers. Don’t be ridiculous, tune in now!
The boys are back in toooooooooown…the boys are back…the boys are back! Eric and Matt are excited to be out of the bunker for “Season 2” of The THING. Join them for an update on what’s been going on and for some exciting news for the future of the show. The crew also digs in for a discussion on all of the amazing stand up comedy specials on Netflix right now (Louis C.K! Dave Chappelle! Mike Birbiglia! WHAT!?!). Come on in to the hidden den in your mind and welcome the crew back, they have missed you.
Eric and Matt are back to recap a week that included an audience with Rock Royalty (Sir Paul McCartney himself), a look at the life and times of legendary creative force Nora Ephron, and a THROWBACK to 1986 for some Big Trouble in Little China (as ‘Ol Jack always says, “What the hell”).
The main event this week is a look at the newly released “Dont Think Twice”, about an aging improv troupe looking at the next phase in life. The guys take on the heavy topics of creativity, growing up, ambition, love and loss that are all posed by this masterwork from writer and director Mike Birbiglia. You will want to pull up a seat and say “yes and” to this weeks installment of The Thing…is that how that works?!
What animal do you want to be? This week on the The THING we make a meal of the way-out absurdist dystopian comedy-drama The Lobster. Join Matt and Eric for a late-night recap of the week that was in popular culture and look forward to some of the stuff coming down the shoot. It’s all here: movies, TV, streaming, music, comics, and our famous bad impressions. Tap in!
This week The THING Podcast crew discuss the pros and cons of streaming interfaces, gear up for a big few weeks of political humor and new releases, and take a peek at some of the Things that came out of the recent STAR WARS (!) Celebration. Finally, we send off “Maron”, the recently wrapped streaming series from one of our podcasting heroes, Marc Maron. So put the Pikachu down, get out of traffic, and get The THING in your earholes!
