Zay breaks out a new summer cut! You can't see it, but you can hear us talk about it and some other stuff!

Zay and Jon go deep on current events; mass shootings, unrest, and upheaval. But there is light at the end of the tunnel and art to make.
July 30, 2019
Zay's on sabbatical but we still get a Rollers update, discuss Tarantino's new movie, and much much more.

The boys take a break from Rollers to talk Network, conspiracies, corporate greed, societal ills, and much much more.
June 12, 2019
Zay and Jon discuss the latest screening of Rollers (Zay's first feature film). We discuss handling criticism, the current state of the film, and how to finish with gold. The race is not won by the swift but to the one who endures till the end.Follow @RollersMovie on Instagram or go to mamabearstudios.com for a look at the poster!
June 5, 2019
The boys hit a milestone and celebrate with some wild offers, (review the podcast and win a trip to LA for the premier of Rollers), some self-reflection, and some future plans. Wouldn't be an anniversary episode sans cooking with Jon and Zay and some other shenanigans to boot. "Never thought we'd make it past 4".
May 29, 2019
Sick and worn out, Zay and Jon recap the past week in Rollers' post production.
May 22, 2019
A message to Zay. A revelation. A new cut. Jon is exposed as a Doubting Thomas. Is Rollers saved? Maybe; but apotheosis is weeks if not months away.
May 14, 2019
Zay and Jon discuss Rollers screening 3. Strength through adversity, ying and yang, chaos and order. Zay closes his eyes and looses his arrows.

April 24, 2019
Zay showed a rough cut of Rollers, his first feature film, and revelations abound! And of course we discuss Easter, controversial authors, Moloch, Segway conspiracies and so much more.

March 13, 2019
We return for part two with Henry to discuss the Nephilim, the Garden of Eden, Marilyn Robinson, the pyramids and the widely discredited Serpent Seed Theory--but not Rollers. Also, Jon discovers vaporwave and crams his Billy Graham collage down our throats.
March 7, 2019
The boys hit a milestone and celebrate by discussing many topics out of their depth. Physics, Nephilim, Pyramids, Pi, the secret of life... mercifully a guest arrives at the end to bring us back to reality... or hurtle us deeper into space. Part 1/2.
March 2, 2019
Zay regales us with tales of Rollers' final production day with--of course--several tangents and many teases.
February 28, 2019
ALT EPISODE DESCRIPTIONS:Rollers is in the can and the boys rehash the creation of Zay's first feature flim. Zay gets a software upgrade and some (one) sound effect(s).Rollers is wrapped up like a little burrito. But will the first bite be a perfect blend of ingredients or a giant blob of lukewarm sour cream?
February 20, 2019
Rollers enters the final week of shooting and Zay dishes the goods through a tin can. Tensions run high but lessons are learned as movie magic is made.
February 5, 2019
Rollers is being put to (digital) film and the boys yak about Uncle Zay's successes and setbacks on set thus far. Turns out: making your first Indie is challenging and cathartic; plus some tangents.
January 23, 2019
We're one week out from production.

January 2, 2019
Rollers is rolling into high gear, but Zay is feeling at least reasonably peaceful about the whole thing. Jon's been binging "The Haunting of Hill House" and he's scared shitless.
December 25, 2018
We hope you're having fun with your families these holidays. But if you need to get away from the politics and presents, throw this episode on the old turntable and escape into the wild and meandering minds of Uncle Zay and Jonny Bear.
December 21, 2018
We've got legendary writer/director David Ferino in the bear den this week to recap Jon's LA trip among other things.

December 7, 2018

The Lottery // Written by Shirley Jackson**DISCLAIMER: The Lottery will in no way increase your chances of winning the lottery, nor will it educate about how to do so. According to Wikipedia The Lottery is a short story written by Shirley Jackson first published in the June 26, 1948 issue of The New Yorker. The story describes a fictional small town which observes an annual ritual known as "the lottery", which results in the killing of one individual in the town. "The Lottery" has been described as "one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature" It initially received a negative response, which surprised both Jackson and The New Yorker. Readers cancelled subscriptions and sent hate mail throughout the summer.Credits and Personal Links:A Mama Bear Studios Production // Mama Bear Studios’ WebsiteProduced and edited by: Isaiah SmallmanExecutive Producer: Jon SchimpfOpening music: "The Get Down," Produced by Summer DregsOutro music: Composed and Recorded by Tom Paulus and Max BelzCover Art by: Nate GiordanoShow Website | ThatWay.fmShow Twitter | @ThatWayPodJon TwitterIsaiah InstagramIsaiah IMDBIsaiah’s Twitter (which he never uses)
