MattyLovesPodcast – MegaCon Orlando 2017

What does it take to get the O.G. MLP crew back together? MegaCon Orlando, that’s what. Join Matt and “Dr.” Tom as they traverse the sea of comic book humanity.

Podcast Anniversary Week!

A mere year ago, Matty and I fired up the laptop and started recording. A year later, we have roughly 40 episodes and with no plans to stop, who knows how far we can go?

Thanks to all for listening, even if only for a minute. To celebrate our anniversary, we knocked out several episodes which have been trickling out over the last week.

Rather than clog your inbox with several posts, here they are (little secret — I went on a long holiday and completely unplugged). Sorry to vomit all this content out on ya.



MattyLovesPodcast EPISODE TWELVE: “The Invincible Birthday”

Episode 12 is LIVE. We now have a full volume of shows. On to Volume 2. Coming soon to iTunes as well. Click on the original story to tune in or go to “Listen to my Podcast” on the upper left. You’ll see links to all of our shows to date. Thanks for listening!


WELCOME TO mattyloves.com!

Hang with us while the website becomes more accessible. There’s a lot going on here.

In the meantime, check out the latest episode of MattyLovesPodcast. And if you feel froggy, ALL of the episodes are now available on the website and will soon be available on iTunes! Stay tuned!

(Is VOLUME ONE complete?)

Today is Matt’s birthday.

Matt utilized NETFLIX and watched MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE for the 3,487th time.

Tom watched THE STORY OF FILM AND ODYESSY–covering the history of film. He’s also digging JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT’S “hitRECord.”

Matt and Tom finally have the opportunity to gush over ROBERT KIRKMAN’S INVINCIBLE.

Matt has the perfect pitch for a film, then Matt and Tom becoming casting directors.
