These Things Matter LIVE

  • Hi-Dive 7 S Broadway Denver, CO, 80223 United States (map)

These Things Matter came about when stand-up comedian Kevin O’Brien and former theatrical director and future DJ to the stars Taylor Gonda realized they were the same person. Not literally, of course, but over several months in 2012, a relationship was built on High Fidelityism – the belief that pop culture can change your life.

With this in mind, they embarked on an aural journey of discovery into the hearts and minds of Denver’s creative community. As time passed, they branched out and explored the obsessions of creative-types nationwide!

Their journey continues, no reference too obscure, no genre too highfalutin. Join them as they wade through movies, music, comedy, television, video games, toys, books, comics and more!

These Things Matter was named Best Podcast at the 2012 Westword Web Awards and Best Podcast in Westword’s 2014 Best of Denver awards.

The live version of These Things Matter is always an audience fave. And while the topic might be a surprise, the killer line-up of smart, pithy comedians and pop culture connoisseurs are sure to delight.
