MULTIMEDIOCRITY #16 – “Sad Songs, Sad Men, and Sad Cheese”

A STATE-LINES.COM Podcast hosted by Shawn Talley and Matthew Hevey


MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast! – Sad Songs, Sad Men, and Sad Cheese

// “I had a feeling that I belonged, I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone…” //

On this week’s installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!, your trusty hosts swoon over some melancholy music before Shawn’s wifi drops out, wherein hilarity does not ensue. Once they regroup, the guys fall into the familiar pits of “separating the art and the artist,” “searching for context and nuance,” and “selective outrage.” This time around, the rehashing of said topics is born out of the fallout from Harvey Weinstein and others’ despicable behavior, and the subsequent #MeToo hashtag. After touching on everything from Chick-fil-A and Guy Fieri to THE LAST JEDI trailer and some Netflix original programming, Doofin gives a progress report on his thus far underwhelming horror movie season watch list, while Talley hates on what Chipotle’s trying to pass as edible queso. “We got a plan to get us outta here” on episode 16, heard on the State Lines Network!
