Ladies and gents, it is once again time to roll out the red carpet for The Thread Awards! Awarding the best in cinema, television, video games, and music.
Due to the timing of this recording, several notable celebrity deaths occurring within the last week were not discussed during this podcast. On the bright side, none of them were part of our 2015 deathpool predictions. Happy RIPcast 2014!
The Thread gives you the gift of podcast! Happy Holidays to all our listeners!

March Twenty-something. 2010. A date that will live in vagary. That’s the day The Thread Podcast was bor…ah…recorde…well…its the Anniversary of The Thread Podcast.

Thoughts are shared. Eric is ridiculed.
For a guy who is single, why doesn’t Eric finish more video games? When will Mike play “Fallout 4”? Will Mark get “Command & Conquer” rebooted? These video game topics and more are covered in our annual “State of the Video Games” address.
The Thread crew tackles Eric’s favorite topic: SPORTS! We discuss Olympic highlights, gays in the NFL, and the beginning of another baseball season.

One half of The Thread would like to wish you a “Happy Holiday”, while the other half wants this holy hell of a season to be over already. This week The Thread tackles all the festive topics: from gifts to drinking, from family get-togethers to drinking again, and from holiday characters to more drinking.
Which shows does Scott love? Which shows are making Eric cry? Which shows are slowly wasting away on Mike’s DVR? Which shows have Mark wishing them a horrible burning death in the depths of TV hell? The Thread discusses Fall 2013 shows.

The 2013 MLB Season has just begun and it has already been interesting. Random injuries and brawls have taken out great players. A shitty 2012 Red Sox team has changed into a team with promise. But the big questions still remain: Who will make the playoffs? Is the Play-in game a good thing? Does Eric still know nothing about sports? And a listener poll asking “What is your favorite baseball movie?”
In the other half of the Wrestlemania-sized Wrestlemania 29 preview, Mike, Shawn, Seth, and Nick go over all the matches on this Sunday’s WM29 card, and discuss the perception vs reality of how predictable the main event matches appear to be.
In this half of the Wrestlemania-sized Wrestlemania 29 preview, Mike, Shawn, Seth and Nick discuss the WWE Hall of Fame inductees for 2013, wrestler’s who have passed away this past year, and the seemingly upward-trending state of the WWE roster. The guys also make some booking decisions, pushing some guys up and others out.
From “Saints Row IV” to “The Last of Us”. From 3 hour lines to 4 hour pub crawls. From Mass Effect panels to dead Smurfs in a sink. Another PAX East has come and gone. This year we teamed up with the lovely Mos Eisley Girls to give you our first crossover podcast. Prepare for awesomeness.
