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

Our new friend comedian Will Miles stopped by to talk about what it’s like to be inspired by your peers, to be away from your family when there’s a terrorist attack, and how Childish Gambino came to be legitimately amazing.

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.

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!
