From art collective turned immersive experience company Meow Wolf, Too Sick presents conversations from this unique and strange intersection of creativity and business. Each week three hosts chat with employees from all parts of the organization to discuss their role in the place we work, engaging big picture topics related to art, collaboration, and capitalism while asking the question, “Is all of this too sick?”
"The bait is nostalgia" with Everything Is Terrible!
Too Sick talks to video collective and frequent Meow Wolf collaborators Everything Is Terrible! EIT! members Commodore Gilgamesh, Wrong Man, and Ghoul School stopped by during their tour to chat about their video editing styles, movies, and live shows. Bonus subjects include gas station pump videos, the guy who collected Speed VHS's, and contributing to MW's House of Eternal Return.
"Absurdly ordinary, entirely magical, weird and boring, stupid and cool" with Mikey
After a prolonged absence, "Too Sick" returns (however briefly) to bring you this episode with the fabled Mikey Rae, a.k.a., Legit Concerns. You may recognize that name from our episode credits as he has drawn the portraits for each of our episodes. Mikey has recently released a book of the comic drawings he's primarily known for called (which you can purchase at shop.meowwolf.com), and we hope you'll enjoy our wonderfully silly conversation with Mikey and his guitar serenade.
"Subvert built reality" with Vince
It's the finale of the inaugural season of Too Sick. Vince Kadlubek is the guest: Founder, visionary, CEO. In this episode we get into his vision for the company, navigating the turbulent waters of funding an immersive experience start-up, and changing the context of reality itself. Heavy, man.
Variety Pack "Party Mix"
It's a different type of Too Sick episode! It's the same five questions, but this time each one is answered by a different guest: Josh Davisson, Maggie Thornton, Diana Casey, Brandt Peters, and Tuscany Wenger. It's fun! You'll love it.
"Relatively sick" with Arlo
Arlo Collins has one of the most critically important jobs at Meow Wolf, interacting face to face with our audience as a Visitors Service Admin Assistant at The House of Eternal Return. We discuss parents that lose track of their children, how having money attached to his art isn't for him, and explaining just what the exhibition IS to tourists day in and day out.
"Chronic scope creeper" with Wolves
The convergence of art and tech is a staple of Meow Wolf exhibitions, and its a combo tech-polymath Wolves has mastered. We have a delightful conversation with Wolves covering everything from Santa Fe culture shock, work life balance, and adapting materials made for adult toys into family friendly interactive art exhibitions.
Delve into Meow Wolf dimensions
Fantastic podcast to better understand the back story and depth behind Meow Wolf. Inspiring, enlightening, and entertaining. Invite Emily Montoya on to tell Snaggy’s origin story. Perfect podcast for those of us who can’t get enough of Meow Wolf.
Good concept, poor execution
I was interested to hear the individual "backstage" stories of MW Way too much in-speak and self-importance by the hosts. Explain and teach the listener rather than assuming we know that "HOER" refers to the House of Eternal Return. The podcast could be several minutes shorter if they didn't say "like" so often. I persevered for a while but had to give up.
This is an insightful, entertaining and honest look inside Meow Wolf.
