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.

Love!

-Taylor & Kevin

“He never sleeps, the judge. He is dancing, dancing. He says that he will never die.”
― Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

Our pal comedian Sam Tallent holds the record for most number of times appearing on the show. Why? Because Sam is a fantastic guest who loves fantastic things, like author Cormac McCarthy and the book Blood Meridian.

Join us as we chat with Sam about The Road, No Country for Old Men, All The Pretty Horses, and all the rest of Mr. McCarthy’s fantastic bibliography. Is there lots of talk of death? Of course there is! Grab your dictionary and let’s boogie!

Major General Franklin Kirby: Leave anything for us?

John Matrix: Just bodies.

Welcome to the ultimate 80s action flick, COMMANDO, watched constantly by our guest, comedian Karl Hess. We watched the film together on a Sunday afternoon – the only way to do so – and we talk about growing up in the 80s, watching action and horror movies rented from video stores. Oh, and Arnold. The one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger.

On this week’s episode we talk to comedian/musician Mishka Shubaly about the one and only Charles Bukowski. Are you a drunk and poor 18 yr-old male with aspirations of becoming a great writer? This is the ep for you! (Actually please don’t be scared that we glorify all things lecherous and base. We have a nice discussion about a nice poet… for the nice people!)

Be sure to follow Mishka, read his books, listen to his music, and check him out when he comes to your town!
