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. We’re talking Donald Glover! Community, Atlanta, LANDO?! Get into it, mystery team!

Well, we’re finally getting political. Kevin gets to fulfill his Talk Radio drams for one episode as we chat with comedian Nate Craig about the understated and exemplary PBS NewsHour. It was hard not to talk about the election this week, but we try to filter it through the calming lens of the Public Broadcasting Service. Thank goodness. Grab your tote bags and listen in!

  • These Things Matter Podcast - The Golden Girls

To finish off our New York episodes we have the fantastic Sharon Spell (of The Sharon Spell Show) talking about her love of The Golden Girls. We chat about the mature gals who laugh together, cry together, eat cheesecake together, and endlessly, cleverly, bitingly throw shade at one another all while being surrounded by pink, pink and pink. Take a trip down to Miami, Florida with us for sex, laughter and friendship!

And be sure to listen to The Sharon Spell Show, and see the great lady whenever you’re in New York at the UCB and elsewhere!

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!
