Pop Culture, Autobiographically. Join hosts Kevin O'Brien and Taylor Gonda as they discuss things that matter, e.g. music, movies, books, and TV. We talk to guests and each other about pop culture and its never ending impact on our lives.

Holy cow, you guys. Thanks to our pals Oliver Howard and Devon Torrey Bryant we are able to bring to you a live recording of our Fourth Anniversary show!! We reunited the Supergroup, which features Chella Negro (Chella & The Charm), Leighton Peterson (Safe Boating is No Accident), Justin Couch (Quantum Creep), Fez Garcia (Tjutjuna), Nathan D Brazil (Salads and Sunbeams), and Nathan Wright (The Kevin Costner Suicide Pact) PLUS bonus musicians Mike Ditto on keys, and Abi McGaha Miller on sax!

Each band member chose a Bowie song to cover and we chatted about it and played it!

Thanks to Syntax Physic Opera for having us and thanks to everyone who came out to watch!

This ep is a little larger than most - we wanted to give you a great sounding concert, so we hope you don't mind if it takes a little while longer than usual to download.

Four years. That's pretty freaky Bowie.

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 Exellent adventure thrown in for good measure. Be sure to check out their new season at www.buntport.com!

Quack, quack, quack!! Right? Right? On today's show we talk to Buntport Theater's Sam Schmitz about that pillar of 90s kids entertainment and subsequent professional hokey team, The Mighty Ducks. Emilio Estevez at his most likeable, with his most flopable hair, plus all the fun-loving, Bash brothering, Mall Of America rollerblading action you could want!

Kids these days! Always lookin' at the YouTubes! Well... yeah! They are! We oldies have no idea about how much the vast video content has changed the media landscape. YouTube is the new television, and all we can do is hope to know PewDiePie's name, let alone what the hell he's talking about. Join us as we talk to Youtuber Adrienne Stortz (XOXO Cooks) about all things tubular!
