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…
The boys are back from space to bring you The Thing! Eric and Matt talk Radiohead Spotify surprises, check-in on HBO’s horror drama hit The Outsider, and the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm (according to Eric, just prettaaaay, prettaaaay, prettaaaay, good).
For the Thing of the Week, we keep the Oscar best picture theme rolling with a discussion on Bong Joon-ho directed phenomenon Parasite. It’s a great talk on an absolute roller coaster of a movie that blew our minds. So come out of the bunker and have a listen, it’s safe…we promise.
We are back to Thing another day! This week, our Things Just In include the new HBO Stephen Kingian sensation The Outsiders, Matt finally gets to discuss the much anticipated Mandalorian finale joke, and Eric shares his disdain for a certain Oscar snub.
Speaking of the Oscars, this week’s Thing of the Week continues our Best Picture Nominee roll with a deep dive on Sam Mendes’s phenomenal WWI visual experience 1917. Tune in, because just like 1917, we do this podcast in one take!
