Long-time broadcaster, sometime writer, wannabe director, occasional actor, more-than-occasional voice actor, part-time banjo tuner and former tuna canner Larry Morgan has managed to spend his entire career in radio and other media somehow not pissing people off. So after years of being told to "not talk so much" and "keep it short" he decide to Talk More and Go Longer with some of those people. Having a natural curiosity for others who are creative and how they got to where they are (obviously fueled by professional jealousy) and honing in on the events, people, films, TV shows and books that drove them to create - presented in a snarky, monkey-like way - is what this podcast is all about. Live - laugh - learn - throw a little feces with us and be an honorary Monkey as we bring the snark and go on this historic, ground-breaking audio journey. (Really, it's not that big a deal, but it should be fun.) -Larry Morgan

    Once Around The Zoom

    Once Around The Zoom

    At long last we get the Snarkers back together from their respective Monkey Cages to chime in on some of the bingeing they've been doing, including some new release movies that have been made available for streaming while also "in theaters" (whatever THAT means.) We talk "The Witches", "Tenet", "Borat Subsequent Movie Film", "Bill & Ted Face The Music", "Enola Holmes", "The Trial of the Chicago 7" and a chilling little indie called "Fear PHarm." And that ain't even it! Like...what the heck is Blaseball? Settle in for the first - and maybe last??? - Zoom edition of SnarkMonkey, with your host Larry Morgan and regulars Trey Callaway, Mark S. Allen, Michael Ambers, Chris McGahan and Alexander Morgan.

    GO TO MOVIES with James Arnold Taylor - "Defending Your Life" (1991)

    GO TO MOVIES with James Arnold Taylor - "Defending Your Life" (1991)

    Who better to talk movies on Star Wars Day than the voice of Obi-Wan himself - James Arnold Taylor! Besides Star Wars: The Clone Wars you've heard him as Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank), Tidus (Final Fantasy X), Johnny Test and many many others. But do we talk Star Wars for comfort food movies? No! It's Albert Brooks' delightful romantic comedy from 1991, "Defending Your Life" co-starring a little-seen, barely-known Meryl...I wanna say...Streep? Go back to a long time ago in a decade far, far away (the '90s!) as well as hear James' other Go To Movie recommendations during this weird time. Enjoy! (And May The Fourth/Force Be With You.)

    Bad Snark for Life!

    Bad Snark for Life!

    After 17 years (25 after the first one!) WIll Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as those wise-crackin', rule-breakin' Miami cops. They're older...they're slower...but are they still funny? Does the chemistry hold up? Do things blow up real good? Join Larry Morgan with Chris McGahan, Jason E. Kelley, and first-time Snarker (and actually real live lady person) Teo Ashenafi as they answer all of the above - and more; including breaking down Will Smith's extraordinary appeal, Martin Lawrence's comeback (of sorts) and celebrate a couple of new directors on the scene who have a ton of promise.

Press play

Highly engaging. Easily digested. Entirely enlightening and just all around interesting for anyone even remotely curious about our natural world.

Great work, BUT...

Love the info, love the mission. Matt has a good voice for podcasting, intelligent but casual and well-paced. Great work! HOWEVER... too often (many episodes) he seems to get nostalgic for his college days and goes off on these lengthy, giggly tangents with his guests about academic life, and suddenly you feel like the unwelcome fly on the wall at a 20-something's outer-borough house party. Haha... but otherwise it's great.

So much more than "just plants"

I love this podcast! Every episode I have listened to puts the topic in a broad context, getting me to rethink my understanding and interpretation of the natural world. It also uses real science vocabulary, which helps the episodes move along and brings me great joy, as I love the words of science. Ecological concepts and ideas for how to think about research are in every episode. Thank you for this podcast, it meets needs I didn't know I had.
