When we started Han and Matt Know It All, it was with the assumption that a few friends and family would listen to us, and it would go the way of so many creative projects—fulfilling, but limited in scope. We had no idea what an amazing community of advice column junkies were out there waiting for us! Since we launched in January of 2017, we've seen our listenership grow steadily, and we've gotten to know you through your emails, on Twitter, and through the questions you send to us—both from your favorite advice columns and about your own lives.
We love making this podcast so much. When we hear from listeners like you that we've improved your lives in some way—whether by normalizing mental illness, giving you the okay to stand up for your own needs, or just yelling about the things that you also want to yell about—we're so humbled and grateful. People's lives are fascinating, and learning about them through the problems that they ask strangers to help them solve is a weird and wonderful thing to be a part of.
Every week, we spend hours putting together our podcast for you—finding questions, recording, editing, emailing, tweeting, creating nerdy names, managing the Listener Hub (which Han STILL maintains is ridiculous), and cat wrangling—and we love every minute of it. Your financial support allows us to put more time into our work, get better equipment, and of course feed the ever-adorable Mad Eye Moody and Shadow, our resident Podcats. By becoming a Patreon funder, you'll get access to bonus content and live chats as our way of thanking you for making this possible for us. Thank you so, so much for being a part of our community!
With so much love,
Han and Matt
Who We Are: Han and Matt Know it All is a (sometimes twice) weekly podcast where Han and Matt (that's us!), a married, polyamorous, queer-as-hell couple discuss their favorite advice columns from around the internet, as well as questions from listeners. We take on issues from relationships to jobs to roommates to mental health, from columnists like Alison Green (Ask A Manager), Mallory Ortberg (Dear Prudence), Jennifer Peepas (Captain Awkward), Amy Dickinson (Ask Amy), and so many more, and we invite columnists on to talk about their work, themselves, and their most interesting questions. We also like to yell about toxic masculinity/the patriarchy and threaten to set things on fire.
