    A triumphant(ish) return!

    A triumphant(ish) return!

    According to our publication records it's only been a month since our last episode, but it sure feels like it's been longer!
    This episode, we do our best to make excuses as to why we've been radio...err, podcast...silent for the last four weeks, say hello to the newest Boredwalk team members, and share our biggest discount codes of the year for our Earlybird Black Friday sale!
    We also rant about the overuse of the word "trauma" during Covid, supply chain frustrations, and people being jerks on the internet. (It's actually a lot funnier and more entertaining than it sounds.)

    Tackling "big kid problems" with Sarah Merrill!

    Tackling "big kid problems" with Sarah Merrill!

    This week on the Boredwalk Podcast, Matt and Meredith are joined by humorist, comedy writer, and content creator Sarah Merrill of the Big Kid Problems podcast, blog, and Instagram!
    We talk to Sarah about her journey into the adult world out of college, the challenges of crafting relatable content on a daily basis that resonates with her audience, her creative process, dealing with haters and trolls, and how the big kid problems of a single 22 year old in college differ from the big kid problems of a married 30-something who's been adulting for a minute now.

    Nathan Kehn is the cat's pajamas

    Nathan Kehn is the cat's pajamas

    This week we're chatting with social media superstar Nathan the Cat Lady! In addition to being a world-famous cat dad, Nathan Kehn is also an accomplished actor. In fact, this episode is coming out one day before the premiere of a new Lifetime original movie starring him in the lead role! Keep an eye out for Dying to Marry Him this weekend — I know I will!
    While you're waiting for your popcorn to pop, listen to Meredith and I chat with him about anti-cat dad bias on dating apps, his path to feline-focused internet stardom, and his journey as a working actor. 
    We also ask him how he'd improve the internet, and he explains why cat dads make better human dads. Fun AND educational!
    * A couple quick production notes:

    • There was a brief issue where our connection was interrupted around the 13 minute mark. Apologies for the clunky editing!

    • At the top of the episode I state that it is episode 146 of the podcast. This was incorrect — it is episode 145. What are numbers anyway, besides tools to help us measure how little time we have left on the earth?

Love this podcast and Meredith and Matt

They are refreshingly honest and frank about current events and share key insights to running a business in the US. I love their views and their interviews are always relevant. More of this! Enjoy!
