About It's a Thing

Tom Merritt is the host of the Daily Tech News Show, Cordkillers, Sword and Laser and so, so many other podcasts. Molly Wood is the host of the national public radio show Marketplace Tech, former New York Times tech columnist, and author of so, so many tweets. Together, they were the creators and co-hosts of Buzz Out Loud, a daily podcast from CNET that launched a thousand memes, imitators and spin-offs. 

And finally, after lo these many years, Tom and Molly are reuniting ... combining their years of experience as journalists and podcasters to create a tour de force podcast about ... tangents. 

It's a Thing is a decidedly off-topic weekly show. It's a show about trends. It's a show about obsessions. It's a show about sneakers, becoming a plant lady, buying a house (holy cow, sewers), books, food (holy cow, lining up for pastries). It's about things that are already a thing, might become a thing, always have been a thing, or are only things in our own minds. And of course, it's about your things! If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, this show is us tying our shoes. And talking about it. 

We hope you'll join us as valued supporters, whether you're longtime fans or new recruits. Share your things with us on Twitter, on the podcast, and on our site, and we look forward to many tangents to come.
