Welp… that’s a wrap. We didn’t quite make it to 250 episodes, and we didn’t quite make it to five years, but that’s how life goes sometimes. Who would have guessed when we started the show that Kevin would be heading off to New York City and Taylor would be heading to Los Angeles? …I mean, I suppose you probably could have made an educated guess. Nevertheless!

We hope you have enjoyed the show whether you listened to one ep or every ep (god save your poor soul). Please know we telepathically heard every time you yelled at your listening device when we got something wrong. You guys yell a LOT!

To absolutely everyone involved in making this show – producers, guests, designers, photographers, bandmates and listeners – THANK YOU.

And now we present The End.

  • These Things Matter Podcast - Kids In The Hall


Holy shit, you guys. It’s head crushing time. Will we use this space just to write our favorite Kids In The Hall quotes? Will we ever get back to 2014 reality, or will we live constantly in a state of Canadian 90s-ness? Guess what, we don’t have to choose! Thanks to comedian and improviser extraordinaire, Haley Driscoll, we can dip our toes into the magical world of Dave, Bruce, Kevin, Mark and Scott any old time! Throw on your wig, do a silly voice and sing “Doe, a Deer” till your mouth bleeds!

While you’re at it, listen to Haley and Christie Buchele’s new podcast Empty Girlfriend! Do something with your life, Lopez!!

These Things Matter - RuPaul's Drag Race
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Katelyn Simkins and Crystal Allen
  • These Things Matter Podcast - RuPaul


In order to talk about RuPaul’s Drag Race (gag!) we enlisted two of Denver’s most amazingly creative divas – make-up artist and producer Katelyn Simkins (sickening!), and photographer Crystal Allen (fierce!). Both are incredible artists in their own right, and together (along with Katelyn’s husband, director Ben Simkins (the house DOWN!), Crystal and Katelyn created RuPaul’s Drag Race season 4 winner Sharon Needles’ latest music video, Dressed To Kill (weeeeeeerk!). Taylor (whose pussy is ON FIRE) was lucky enough to join in on the fun, and it was at the video shoot that she realized TTMP could not find better guests to talk about the best reality TV show ever (no T, no shade, dolls).

Do check out the new video (we’ll post a link once it’s out) and do check out Crystal and Katelyn’s work where ever you see their names. Now, PRANCE, I SAY! PRANCE! (BTW, season 6 starts on FebRUary 24th, hunties.) ALL HAIL MAMA RU!
