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.


-Taylor & Kevin

On the first of our final three episodes we have Denver podcast pioneer and storytelling host Ron Doyle talking about his undying love of magazines. From purchasing childhood subscriptions to writing for Complete Woman as the industry was collapsing, Ron LOVES the glossy tomes.

Join us as we chat – there is talk of nudie magazines, y’all – and then go see Ron at The Narrators every 3rd Wednesday at Buntport Theater!

We’re back at it again, brother! Nathan Lund started the Wrestling train running in Episode 31, but we added rocket fuel via Brett Davis of The Special Without Brett Davis, Wednesdays at 11pm EST on New York public access and on his Tumbler page. Brett stopped by with Steve Whalen to talk Ultimate Warrior, The Vaudvillans, and lots and lots of other fantastic wrestling characters, past, present and future. Join us in the squared circle, won’t you?

  • These Things Matter Podcast - Greek Mythology


These Things Matter was delighted when our pals at Buntport Theater asked us to chat with them about Greek Mythology – the through-line of their current theatrical season. We talked to Hannah Duggan, Brian Colonna, Erin Rollman, Erik Edborg, and Samantha Schmitz about myths, mortals and monsters, and perhaps a little Bill and Ted’s Excellent adventure thrown in for good measure.

Be sure to check out their new season at!

These Things Matter Podcast - PewDiePie
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Adrienne Stortz
  • These Things Matter Podcast - YouTube


This may be the oldest we’ve ever sounded talking about that thing the kids are all crazy over – YouTube. Whether it’s PewDiePie, Smosh, JennaMarbles, KSI, or any other name that resembles an AOL Chat Room username, we know very little about it. (Apart from WowPresents, which is Taylor’s fave channel)

Luckily our guest, Youtuber Adrienne Stortz knows a lot! You can catch her show weekly at XOXO Cooks! Like this video here!
