This podcast, much like the music of the last few decades, does not summon demons when played backwards.

Description

It's a Thing is a decidedly off-topic 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.
