The THING is back with a whirlwhind recap of the past week that includes the Traverse City Film Fest, a marathon run of stand up comedy dates, and a Game of Thrones episode that (hopefully) is building toward some kind of action. Finally, Eric makes a strong pitch to get Matt to get into the theater and see the (1/2) THING of the week, Christopher Nolan’s war epic Dunkirk. Will he go see it…will he not…listen in and find out!

Eric and Matt check-in to chat about the first few weeks back in Westeros! Game of Thrones season 7 is heating up as everyone in the Seven Kingdoms is, uh, looking at maps! The guys also prep for the upcoming Traverse City Film Festival, a truly great week for seekers of the THING!
The boys are back after an (unintended) independence week break. This week they catch up on some exciting THINGs Just In (Stranger Things S2!), recap a couple weeks worth of engaging creative content, and prepare to sail back into Westeros this weekend! Finally, they dig in to this weeks THING of the Week, the stylized, crazy-cool summer thrill ride that is Baby Driver! Put on your seat belt, crank up some Bellbottoms and come along for the ride!
Eric and Matt (charmed I’m sure) are back to round up some THINGs Just In from the Stone Age to the Age of Atari. They recap an exciting week in creative culture which includes the delightfully odd “Oh, Hello on Broadway”. And finally, they settle in for a big bud/little bud captain’s update on the masterful “Master of None” Season Two on Netflix. If we had to describe this week’s show in one word, that word would be: “Allooooooora!”
Eric and Matt catch up on a wild week in creative culture, look ahead to a promising summer of THINGs just in, and WONDER if the DC universe has finally found redemption. Then, the guys discuss the swan (carrier pigeon?) song of the Leftovers. Don’t get left behind, give it a listen!
