Join us on THE THING your podcast for all things interesting. This week we float along on the happy little clouds of the late great Bob Ross, check in with Prophets of Rage, and take a peek at Peaky Blinders. Finally, we get giddy over out Thing of the Week, Bo Burnham’s brilliantly absurd new Netflix comedy special “Make Happy”. So stick us in your ears Thigamabobs, and ask yourself: Are you happy?
Join Eric and Matt as they round up the week in creative culture. They try to determine the shelf life of Rage, discuss the current gold rush in the world of comic books, and pay proper tribute to longstanding PEAK THING (!): Good Will Hunting. Do you like apples? We at THE THING love Good Will Hunting so much we almost can’t handle ourselves…how do you like them apples?!? You’re suspect!! It’s not your fault!! Tune in and share the GWH love.
This week on The Thing: The Horn of Plenty! In the absence of a true Thing of the Week, Matt & Eric deliver a veritable smorgasbord of Week in Review, Throwback, and Thing of the Week topics. It’s all here folks, our breakdown on the movies, TV, music, podcasts, comedy, comic books, and more that we say are worth your time right now. Join our rapid fire roundup of goodness!
This week Eric and Matt catch up on two weeks of Week in Review, discuss their excitement around the sudden availability of NEW RADIOHEAD MUSIC (!), and finally cross the wall into Westeros to do battle with Season One of Game of Thrones. Sit down for a listen…or there may just be a pike in the Village Square with your name on it. Long live the King! Winter is Coming! …and so forth.
This week Eric and Matt honor the loss and legacy of the Purple One, Throwback to a 1986 comedy classic, channel some Michael Scott, and dig deep into the creatively fearless and mystifying new film Midnight Special. So hop on board for the ride…like a train…like the Midnight Special…that you board…at the station…with a ticket…and your luggage….I’ll show myself out…
