PATREON BONUS: So, I Was Thinking About Work From Home
So I Was Thinking is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Kate and Matt. In it, they choose different topics they've been thinking about and discuss them. Think of this as a peak into how the two discuss topics in their kitchen. With little editing and even fewer notes, the two talk about working from home. In this episode, the two discuss how they used to work from home and how that's changed now that it's forced instead of wanted. They talk work-life balance, company expectations, and wonder if we'll ever go back to old work models.
Other So I Was Thinking topics include "Director's Cuts," "Scooters in the City," "Friends After the Pandemic," "Anime," and more!

Zack Snyder's Justice League Review
Four years ago we reviewed Justice League - and y'all loved it. And for whatever reason, we're back here again to review Zack Snyder's Justice League. With the help of Alex. We talk about the length, ancient lamentations, why The Flash slowly touching the face of a woman he just met is beyond creepy, large music video shots of people standing, water bubbles, and at least why this one is better than the Joss Whedon's version.
It's not all bad though, we talk about what the Snyder Cut does with characters that improve them, like with Cyborg and Wonder Woman, and about why the Amazon scene still slaps. At clocking in at just over two hours, this version of our review isn't ALL of it. If you want to hear the But Why Tho Cut of this review - which is about 45 minutes more of content we cut out, head on over to our Patreon. You can subscribe and listen to the audio version OR watch our video - and get to see Adrian making his ancient lamentations in stunning definitely not 4k.
Episode 172: Monster Hunter Matters...But Why Tho?
This week to celebrate the release of Monster Hunter Rise we're devoting episode 172 to talk all about why Monster Hunter matters. In this episode, with the help of Techniq, we dive into this history of Capcom's best selling property, it's impact on RPGs, and why it took so long to take off in the United States. Don't worry, we talk about Monster Hunter World.
Episode 171: Hunter x Hunter Matters…But Why Tho?
In this episode we break down the beloved shonen manga and anime series: Hunter x Hunter. Whether you pronounce the “x” or you don’t, we talk all about the series’ long history, the hiatuses, and ultimately why the fandom around the series only keeps increasing despite having no new media since 2019 in the United States and even longer in Japan. Plus, we talk all about what separates this shonen from others, including the protagonists, the villains, the themes, and of course the sprinkle of murder from every character – including our hero Gon. And, we do this all with the help of DataDave, content creator, voice actor, and Twitch Ambassador.
Episode 170: Tom & Jerry Matters...But Why Tho?
With the recent release of Tom and Jerry on HBO Max, it's time to dive into one of the oldest cartoons still kicking around today.
Episode 169: Blizzard Matters...But Why Tho?
On Episode 169, we're looking at the whole company, good, bad, and ugly. From Warcraft to Overwatch, even if you've never played their games, you have probably heard of them, and if you've played any RTS or MMO, you've certainly felt their lasting effect. Blizzard is an often problematic fave, but they are also firmly among the most influential and popular video game companies ever.
Love the show, and love the hosts. Really fun content! More of the same please ☺️
Entertaining & Learn A lot
I'm always surprised at how much I learn from the different episode topics and all while being entertained too. The hosts do a great job with their research on all things pop culture and always love listening to them each week.
Really entertaining pod
Great pop culture pod that covers the most fun corners of geekery 🤓😎! Just listened to “justice league: animated series” ep and the hosts were witty and had wide ranging knowledge of cool obscure comic stuff. I learn cool new things almost every week and I like how the hosting duties shift based on passion of the hosts. The only thing that needs improving is Matt’s views on hummus...
