Sometimes, people choose to walk away from something at which they are exceptionally gifted. Such was the case, last year, when popular Portland podcasters Cort Webber and Bobby “Fatboy” Roberts put nearly a decade of day-in-day-out work to rest with cortandfatboy is dead.
And then, sometimes, those same people realize that there is more to do. And they choose to come back.
That’s right. Cort and Fatboy are back with new project: That Whole Thing.
Welcome to That Whole Thing, a weekly hour-long news program, blending “serious business” type stories from the front pages of the internet, with goings-on from the wonderful world of pop-culture; all cut with the sort of silliness, satire, and sarcasm they’ve infused into almost every subject they’ve approached in their combined 20+ years of broadcast/podcast experience. It’s not the conversational free-for-all you’re used to from these two, but a more focused (ish) look at the biggest stories of the week through their uniquely Portland perspective.
This new show premieres February 1st, 2013, and new episodes – sponsored by purveyors of all things pop culture Things From Another World and distributed by Portland Podcast Godfather and creator of pdx.fm, Robert Wagner—will update every Monday thereafter.
