As an added bonus, we’ve included some of our “warm-up sessions” from the past season at the very end of the episode. Topics include: Sochi Olympics, You Know How I Know You’re Fat, “24”, and Fatt Damon.

The Thread S5Ep8: Threadaversary

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. The boys from Boston discuss their humble beginnings from the streets of Boston, to the modern-day amenities afforded to the Thread Podcast in the suburbs of Boston. Reminiscing is had. Thoughts are shared. Eric is ridiculed.

You were thinking it too…

ERIC: How’s everyone?  It’s half a ghost town at work today.  Eerie walking past the T-station on the way into my building and not seeing anyone there.  Got a parking spot on the first floor of the parking garage, which never happens.  One of my co-workers actually lives in Watertown.  He’s WFH, under the covers in the basement.

MARK: I’m fine.

SCOTT: I’m good as long as the SOB gives up, gets killed, or arrested sometime soon and the Red Sox game doesn’t get postponed.

MARK: Really Scott?  I mean really????  How can two geniuses such as ourselves be thinking the same thing.  Mind goggling!

ML: People can Google minds now?

SCOTT: ML, you can.


ERIC: I’m just hoping Boston Comic Con will still go on tomorrow!

MARK: What the hell Suff?!

SCOTT: I agree Mark. Eric, don’t be so selfish.

ERIC: Scott, I’m thinking of you as well.  You have time to make that AND go eat rice noodles.

SCOTT: Rice noodles? Because my wife is Asian?! Racist!

ERIC: I know.  I’m a terrible person.  Either that or I remembered that having to go eat pho was your lame excuse on Monday for not being able to go to Comic Con.

SCOTT: Eric, there was no such excuse. I was meeting up for dinner in the evening which does not overlap with Comic Con.

MARK: Really Eric?  You are worried about Comic Con being cancelled compared to a mad man being apprehended.  Why don’t you add to it and promote yourself by making a public statement that you will be at Comic Con.  Moron…

ERIC: Maybe I will!  Maybe I just will! Go Red Sox, Mark!

MARK: The Red Sox will show more comfort to the people as a whole than people dressed up in costumes and scaring more people in the area where mayhem was seen.

ERIC: I will be more comforted by someone dressed up as Wonder Woman.

SCOTT: Why do you want to see a man dressed as Wonder Woman? That’s rather gayish.

MARK: And I am sure he will treat you very nicely for a price.

ERIC: You and Scott shouldn’t project your own personal fantasies on to me.

MARK: Coming from the one that has a lightsaber armory.

ERIC: You’re the guys who want to see a man in a WW costume.

SCOTT: Eric, you brought up Wonder Woman, not us. You are projecting and backtracking. I wouldn’t choose Wonder Woman. She’s a beast of an Amazon. She might even have a penis. Plus, I’ve never seen her wash her hands on the invisible jet.

ERIC: Don’t be afraid of tall girls just because you are a tiny man. I brought up a WW costume.  *You* assumed it would be a dude in the costume.  Your mind took it there, because that’s what you secretly want to see.

SCOTT: Mark and I took it there because you love the cock.

MARK: Are you saying you are afraid of girls.  Perhaps you are more comfortable around guys?  IT’s ok.  There is nothing wrong with that. I would rather Princess Lea in the captured bikini and chained.  Now, that is a woman!

ERIC: She might be there too….

MARK: I doubt it.  That scene was 1983.  I believe Carrie Fisher is old and in rehab at this point.

SCOTT: I’d hope to see Power Girl. You need to have special powers to support a rack like that.


MARK: Eric, you and Shawn should dress up like The Tick and his sidekick the moth, Arthur.

The Thread S4Ep16: The Best Baseball Podcast Of All Time

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?”
