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.

Join us as we sit and drink and chat and sing with our Supergroup: Leighton Peterson, Chella Negro, Justin Couch, Fez Garcia, Nathan Wright and filling in for Nathan Brazil is Sufi Magpie Stevens!

Can you consider yourself a good person if you don’t like PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES or A VERY MURRAY CHRISTMAS? How much nog is too much nog? And what if everybody is just feeling sad and depressed during the holidays? Let’s see what happens!

  • These Things Matter Podcast - The Velveteen Rabbit


For the 3rd time in a row, Kevin and Taylor sit down with mugs of alcoholic beverages (hot toddies, to be exact) and chat about nothing in particular. This year we decided to forgo singing as we figure we can only torture our listeners so much. Happy Holidays to all and a Merry Pop Culture Year to you and your loved ones!

Ho, ho, ho suckahs! It’s that time of year again when Kevin and Taylor let their holiday hair down. Sitting around, drinking whiskey, talking about whatevs, having Kevin’s dog Oscar join in on the fun, presents, excitement, fantastic!

Hope you guys are having a fantastic holiday season! Next week we’ll be putting out the crazy we-don’t-know-quite-how-his-is-going-to-work party episode! Can’t wait to find out!

  • These Things Matter - It's a Wonderful Life


Hey, Holiday Heroes! So Kev and I drank in a little too much cheer and we decided it would be wise to sing to you. Oy. We apologize in advance.

We talk about It’s a Wonderful life and other holiday classics whilst sipping on Irish cream. PLUS you get the bonus experience of two non-singers singing a few holiday classics for you, complete with amateur ukelele accompaniment! What more could you want!?

Oh, and here’s a very interesting article from the AV Club about It’s a Wonderful Life, discussing some of the same ideas we bring up.
