A STATE-LINES.COM Podcast hosted by Shawn Talley and Matthew Hevey
\\ “I exploit you, still you love me / I tell you one and one make three” \\
On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!, Doofin and Talley are… well, frustrated — at the world, at their fellow man, at the current administration. The usual attempt to dive right into pop culture topics is eschewed for a step onto the ol’ soapbox, where they express their disillusionment over, among other things, the ongoing actions at our southern border, said actions’ apathetic defenders, and the growing entitlement of Star Wars fanboys.
The guys eventually do move on, touching on subjects like the recent passing of Anthony Bourdain, how dudes seem to gauge the greatness of Pixar films on a scale of how many tears they shed, the current World Cup, and soccer fandom in the States, or the lack thereof. It’s a scattershot show that sees the conversation bounce from Chris Hardwick’s recent woes to Viola Davis’ ability to elevate even the subpar-est of material. Wonder where it all went wrong with us on Episode 28, heard via the State Lines Network!
