These Things Matter Podcast - The Boss
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Pat Byrne
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Bruce Springsteen

We were incredibly thrilled to have radio superstar Pat Byrne drop by our makeshift Brooklyn studios to talk about his love of Bruce Springsteen. His show on WFMU, “Prove It All Night” is named after a song by The Boss, for goodness sake, and the Jersey kid had stories galore, including that one time he drove up to Max Weinberg’s house.

Listen in and then tune your computers to Jersey’s own WFMU every Saturday night as Pat takes over the airwaves from 9pm-12am ET, and hear Pat produce The Best Show with Tom Scharpling every Tuesday night, also from 9pm-12am ET!

  • These Things Matter Podcast - Ninja Turtles

Kevin and Taylor flew all the way to New York City to talk to comedian Scott Sharp about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they hadn’t even seen the Michael Bay movies! Yeah, they’ve got their priorities well in order. You know what? Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Donatello would understand. Splinter might give them shit, but he’s a rat! Listen in! AND GRAB A PIZZA, MAN! BUT NO ANCHOVIES!

  • These Things Matter Podcast - Wes Anderson

“Here are just a few of the key ingredients: dynamite, pole vaulting, laughing gas, choppers – can you see how incredible this is going to be? – hang gliding, come on!”

“I saved Latin. What did you ever do?”

“You heard me, Coltrane.”

“I’m going to find it and I’m going to destroy it. I don’t know how yet, maybe dynamite.”

“Maybe we could express ourselves more fully when we say it without words.”

“Are you cussing with me?”

“I love you, but you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… oh, fuck it.”

Need we say more?

Except to say our guest, Adam Maid, is a sketch comedian and stand-up of the highest order and you should go see him whenever he is in your general vicinity, especially when he’s performing in Bridge & Tunnel, his sketch comedy group which includes friends of the show Jason Gore and Kristen Bartlett!
