Epic Threads - ever ask someone, “did you read that crazy commenting thread?” Well, neighbors Linda & Steve found themselves talking about these digital trainwrecks, online tear-jerkers and social media headscratchers during block parties, drinks on the porch and over texts. Instead of just boring our spouses with these sessions (selfish!) we’d thought we’d share them with the world with a podcast. Nextdoor, Facebook, Reddit, Forums? We’ll hit them all. Wherever netizens, noobs and Nana (Nana….what are you doing here?!) get their “Firsts!” we’ll happily follow along, tally the comments and come to some new understanding of the net. Or not, it’s a pretty weird place. Join us from Leaky Basement Studios as we comment on the world of commenting. It’s Epic Threads.
