Episode 15 - We're Number One!
That's right America, we've set new records for rates of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia! This is the highest rate for these STDs America has ever seen. So - we're great again? Ah forget it, let's get back to the fun! Last week I told you that Better Call Saul is better than ever, and is rapidly catching up with the Breaking Bad timeline. This week did not disappoint, as Jonathan Banks showed us Mike's transformation from grieving father to straight-up gangster with some of the finest acting I've seen in years. On the other end of the entertainment spectrum, it's time to have a real conversation about the flaws in our Star Wars. Not by engaging with racists and misogynists, but by listening to the finest critic of our generation, Mr. Plinkett! He's back, and with his usual slurred genius he breaks down the problems with The Force Awakens.

Episode 13 - Weekend Update
Just a quick Friday minisode, in which I answer a listener's question about - sigh - Opie. It's the Matt Sager Podcast, I'm not looking to give out free plugs to Westwood One! Still, the truth is I have no relationship with Opie at all, and certainly no beef - if anything, I do empathize and wish I could help the guy. Mostly, I love answering your questions, so keep them coming! Send your questions via social media, or send me an email: matt@mattsager.com.

Episode 12 - Rocket Science
In which I marvel at an internship that exploded before it could launch, and continue to be soothed by the dulcet tones of my soundboard. Make sure to subscribe to the show, and to leave ratings and reviews!

Episode 11 - Where Were You?
We're at a crossroads. The events of the last couple of days will be written in history books. What happens next, is anyone's guess. On a lighter note, happy belated National Radio Day! I have a lot of love for the radio people in my life, good friends and mentors all. Monday, August 20 was National Radio Day, and although I missed it, tonight I take the opportunity to give a shout out, and thanks, to some of the great radio people whom I've had the privilege of knowing.

Episode 10 - Better Watch Saul
More TV reviews, you ask? Gladly! Reruns got you down? That House of Cards just doesn't stand up to scrutiny anymore now that they got rid of the lead, who by the way turned out to be a monster? Don't be a victim! Act now! You deserve justice! You deserve... Saul. Plus, ask me anything: matt@mattsager.com. Tonight, I answer my first question.

Episode 9 - We Bought A Soundboard
As reckless as buying a zoo if not far more so, I've armed myself with a soundboard. I promise to use it responsibly! After this one first test drive, in which I go crazy bananas with my new toy. Also, I am now fully on board with Disenchantment! Hear how it won me over, and why it's worth your time (because I'm pretty sure you'll love it too)! Thanks for being part of the Matt Sager Podcast!

Episode 8 - Dreamland
Matt Groening's new animated series landed on Netflix today, and it's a bit of a disappointment. Why are our favorite network television creators having trouble making the leap to streaming services, where they are finally getting the financial and creative support they've fought for for so long (see also: Arrested Development). Is "too cool for TV, not cool enough for Netflix" the new "too old to rock and roll, too young to die?" More importantly, just because I was disenchanted with Disenchantment doesn't mean that it's necessarily a bad show. I want to know what you thought of it! Let me know in the comments, or by emailing me: matt@mattsager.com. Thanks for being part of the Matt Sager Podcast! Don't forget to subscribe to the show, and to leave ratings and reviews!

Episode 7 - RESPECT
It's a sad day, as we mourn the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Meanwhile, the press finds it's spine and politely asks to not be labeled an "enemy of the people," and tomorrow marks the Netflix debut of Matt Groening's latest animated series, Disenchantment!

Episode 6 - Let's Do This Every Day!
In which I start doing daily podcast episodes, because why wait a week? I'll still make a bigger deal of those weekly episodes, as I continue to recruit co-hosts, writers, voice actors and other talent (you could be part of it, too: email matt@mattsager.com). In the meantime, I've got professional quality podcasting software and hardware right in the palm of my hand! No, this isn't Opie Radio, you can use professional equipment without recording in a studio! I'll prove it to you with this inaugural daily minisode, in which I also give you my Dark Knight theory (why did he let Rachel die? I have some thoughts on the matter).

Episode 5 - The Return
I'm over my infection, and I've watched everything anyone ever posted to YouTube - twice. Two weeks in bed and you start getting a bit stir-crazy. I even discovered a new show from my old employers at Westwood One, and honestly got a straight-up PTSD flashback. It's - not good. I'll strive to do better than Opie Radio at keeping you entertained, now that I'm recovered, rejuvenated and ready to put on a show!

Episode 4 (Minisode) - What Would Paul Stanley Do?
In which I lose all my KISS fans, but work through a salivary gland infection and one of the highest fevers a person can survive. That's why it's a minisode. Oh, and yeah, that picture, my voice - New York medical malpractice attorneys, I am now soliciting consults with you! As well, of course, as still seeking co-hosts, voice actors, writers, etc. - one and all, please contact me: matt@mattsager.com.
