  • These Things Matter Podcast - Greek Mythology

These Things Matter was delighted when our pals at Buntport Theater asked us to chat with them about Greek Mythology – the through-line of their current theatrical season. We talked to Hannah Duggan, Brian Colonna, Erin Rollman, Erik Edborg, and Samantha Schmitz about myths, mortals and monsters, and perhaps a little Bill and Ted’s Excellent adventure thrown in for good measure.

  • These Things Matter Podcast - YouTube

This may be the oldest we’ve ever sounded talking about that thing the kids are all crazy over – YouTube. Whether it’s PewDiePie, Smosh, JennaMarbles, KSI, or any other name that resembles an AOL Chat Room username, we know very little about it. (Apart from WowPresents, which is Taylor’s fave channel)

Luckily our guest, Youtuber Adrienne Stortz knows a lot! You can catch her show weekly at XOXO Cooks! Like this video here!

  • These Things Matter Podcast - All About Eve

On today’s episode we talk to author Neal Pollack about his love of Turner Classic Movies. We’ve never had a whole television network to talk about, and so our discussion meanders from classic 40s noir to Altman’s 70s masterpieces. Do we include a racist music number? Of course we do. Listen in and meet us in St. Louis!

Be sure to check out Neal’s books all over the damn place, including his new Amazon single, “Not Coming To a Theater Near You”, available now!

These Things Matter Podcast - Stephen King

  • These Things Matter Podcast - Stephen King

Avid readers of Stephen King are a rare breed. They are lovers of high-minded, sophisticated trash (or intelligent literature for mass-consumption – take your pick). They could be your aunt who reads nothing else, or your teenage cousin who goes on to be an astrophysicist. Our guest, Nerd Nite Denver‘s Sara Wilson, is somewhere in between. King was definitely a gateway drug to other authors, but she still loves the thrill of a good scary tale. Bring your buckets of blood and come along!
