Episode 15 of the Is This a Thing? Podcast!

"Operation Slap 'n Tickle"

Starring: Marc, Akshat, and Dan

Potential Things this week:  

  • Movie Trailers: Sure this is a nuanced topic. But you know how we can solve it? By relying on our nation's true warriors. The ones that lead us out of darkness. The brave souls who show us the true way to freedom. We speak of the Film Students.  
  • Supporting Things: Listen to us weave a web of cynicism that is both useless, and baseless. Also, nothing matters and everything is terrible. 
  • Taxis: The best thing to come out of the demise of taxis and the rise of Uber and other unmarked taxi services, is the occasionally experiencing the first half of getting carjacked by drunk people. 


It's Episode 15 of the Is This A Thing Podcast! This week, we discuss whether movie trailers are a thing. It's a heated discussion, touching on Proust. Seriously, Proust. No, for real go listen, we talk about Proust. We then move on to supporting things with money. Have you ever wanted to heard Dan accosted for his beliefs by two belligerent, sad and cynical people? Well want no longer you can hear it all in this episode. Finally, we discuss taxis,  which we (along with the rest of the world) have nothing but contempt for. Instead, we all like Uber, especially when people assume you are their uber ride, and accost you, and you pretend to put on a brave face and drive away, and then cry a little and call your mother. It's a week of fun! A week of mystery! A week of praising Film Students! Hey come on, be nice. They need a break from bringing people coffee and making a frame with their fingers and looking through it all the time.
