Hey-o Thingamabobs! This weekend Thing Just In, our dynamic duo shares their excitement about the new Killer Mike Docuseries “Trigger Warning”, raises their red flags about the new HBO documentary “Bully. Coward. Victim. The Roy Cohn Story”, and weighs in with a discussion on the Chris D’Elia (career) death watch and what to do with our recent episode.
For this week’s Thing of the Week, we have an impassioned celebration of the outstanding WWII Dramedy “JoJo Rabbit” Directed by Taika Waititi. This little beauty caught us right in the sweet spot and was a timely reminder of everything we love about art. Put on your dancing shoes and listen along!
We are back on the air this week catching up on all things THING! We talk about the recent WTF with Jerry Seinfeld and the value of authenticity in Comedy (we’re looking at you Chris D’Elia). We also geek out about new stuff from Jim Gaffigan, Mike Birbiglia, and IDLES!
Our main topic this week is a deep dive into the new Pete Davidson vehicle “King of Staten Island” directed by Judd Apatow and featuring one of our favorite guys, old freckles himself: Bill Burr! Is it the THING? You will have to tune in and find out…
Eric and Matt are back with some banter on the state of the Thing during these strange times. We catch on the phenomenon of comedy with no audience, have a live content roundup, and celebrate the ingenuity of some local artists and businesses.
Finally, we mention a few cinema classics that may help you bide your time, and for once and for all put a nail in the damn Tiger King! We hope you give us a listen, we would love to join your quarantine.
Matt is on vacation this week so Eric has a solo talk with himself about a number of topics that interest him, including the 1981 cult classic My Dinner with Andre, in which two men talk with each other about a number of topics that interest them.
It’s a minimalist episode of TheTHINGpod dear listeners, meticulously crafted for your listening pleasure.
This week Matt took his protein pills and put his helmet on for the first ThingPod solo spacewalk. He does a quick recap on all things Oscars, shares his reservations on the second coming of Jesus (Quintana), checks in on the lurking HBO leviathan The Outsider, and more Things Just In.
For this week’s Thing of the Week, Matt breaks down the Ed Norton passion project Motherless Brooklyn and why the world is better for it. Have a listen, can you hear him, Major Tom…Can you hear him, Major Tom…
