No Small Talk, Episode 16: Bruce Springsteen Reupholsters The Classics

The famed author, Chuck Klosterman, created intricate questions in an attempt to avoid “small talk.” Per his words: “Some people are extremely good at making small talk. These people are better known as ‘idiots’. “

This week Matt and Stephanie stray from the “hypertheticals” and discuss the ideas of cover songs and why Mandy Moore picked B and C sides for her cover album Coverage. Also on the music front they discuss the idea of music snobbery and how people listen and live with music.

The topic of religion comes up as Steph asks Matt the question of: if you were with someone and they were perfect in every way, but  had a fundamental belief different than something you believe strongly in.

Would you stay with them?

No Small Talk, Episode 12 “Mail Time!”

The famed author, Chuck Klosterman, created intricate questions in an attempt to avoid “small talk.” Per his words: “Some people are extremely good at making small talk. These people are better known as ‘idiots’. “

Having all their conversations be nothing but small, Matthew Ryan and Stephanie Sottile thought it’d be fun to answer some of these questions…BUT NOT THIS WEEK!

Our esteemed hosts thought it might be fun to do something different this week and bring emails they received into their conversations. Instead of answering Chuck Klosterman’s questions, they would answer some of the fans’ questions! Wrestling, Seinfeld, rape-filled references in old cartoons, and oral history about oral histories.
