Zack Poitras: Hello, and welcome to
Good God with God.
Zack Poitras: I'm God, and today's episode is
brought to you by steam.
Zack Poitras: Steam. It's a little wispies of hot water
that floats through the air, you know.
Zack Poitras: Too much of it, it can burn
you, but just the
Zack Poitras: right amount, ah
yeah, I love it.
Zack Poitras: Steam. I made it. I love it.
Check it out.
Zack Poitras: So today, we have a
very special guest.
Zack Poitras: He's the Caped Crusader.
You know, he's a detective.
Zack Poitras: Batman.
Zack Poitras: Hello Batman.
How are you today?
Matt Klinman: Why did you do it?
Matt Klinman: I'm sorry. Do what?
Have you on the show--
Matt Klinman: Why did you let my
parents get murdered?
Zack Poitras: What do you mean let
your parents get murdered?
Matt Klinman: You control what happens.
You orphaned a small boy.
Zack Poitras: I don't control what's
going on with you.
Zack Poitras: That's a writer, you know,
because you're a comic book character.
Matt Klinman: What are you
talking about?
Zack Poitras: You are fiction. You don't really
exist in the real world--
Zack Poitras: In the world that I created,
you were then created by humans.
Matt Klinman: What?
Matt Klinman: This conversation is not going
the way it's been running in my mind.
Zack Poitras: I understand. What did you
expect me to say, like I'm sorry?
Matt Klinman: I was going to confront you.
You were going to say,
Matt Klinman: "You're right. I killed your
parents. I'm sorry. I'm blood thirsty,
Matt Klinman: and I'm actually evil
as it turns out,"
Matt Klinman: and then we would fight.
Matt Klinman: POW!
Matt Klinman: It would be kinda fun.
It would be a more fun one.
Zack Poitras: I like fun Batman.
A lot of people don't--
Matt Klinman: I would get fun if I was
writing Batman, I would write
Matt Klinman: the fun campier
version of me.
Zack Poitras: 'Cause what kind of things
have you always wanted to do as
Zack Poitras: Batman that you haven't
been able to do?
Matt Klinman: I'd love if the things that
I drove around in looked
Matt Klinman: more like bats again. My car
right now it barely looks like a bat at all,
Matt Klinman: but my car used to
look a lot like a bat.
Zack Poitras: I remember.
It was great.
Matt Klinman: I loved that.
Zack Poitras: Yeah, that was great.
Matt Klinman: I had submarines, that
I had look like bats.
Matt Klinman: All that bat stuff was
great. I love bats.
Zack Poitras: What's your favorite
kind of bat?
Matt Klinman: Boy, that's the thing. I could
probably only name vampire and fruit.
Zack Poitras: That's it?
Matt Klinman: That is weird that I haven't
studied bats more.
Zack Poitras: Oh man. There's
long-eared bats.
Matt Klinman: There's long-eared bats?
Zack Poitras: Do you prefer having long ears
or short ears on your costume?
- If I were to choose?
- Yeah.
Matt Klinman: I would have
super long ones.
Zack Poitras: Really, long ones?
Matt Klinman: Yes. So long.
Zack Poitras: I can do that for you right
now. Would you like that?
- Yes. Please.
- Alright.
Matt Klinman: As long as you
can make them.
Zack Poitras: Alright.
Matt Klinman: Long and pointy as hell.
Zack Poitras: Boom. Look at that.
- Hell yes.
- Very cool.
Matt Klinman: Whip those
fuckers around.
Zack Poitras: Yeah.
Matt Klinman: Ah!
Matt Klinman: Now you're scared of
me, aren't ya?
Matt Klinman: I could puncture you in
two spots. If I wanted to God.
Matt Klinman: Now you tell me.
Why did you do it?
Matt Klinman: Why did you create the writer
that created a story
Matt Klinman: about my parents
being killed?
Zack Poitras: Ah man. Look, don't threaten
me with the ears I just made you, okay.
Matt Klinman: Uh-uh!
Zack Poitras: No. Come on.
Matt Klinman: How about that? I knocked
over my microphone.
Zack Poitras: Yeah. I know. I saw that.
Matt Klinman: How bad am I?
Zack Poitras: You're very bad, Batman.
You're very bad.
Zack Poitras: Come on man. You know,
that's not even my stuff.
Zack Poitras: I got this from a library.
Matt Klinman: I'm sorry. I like libraries.
Zack Poitras: Me too, you know. That's why
I try to support them by
Zack Poitras: renting their equipment.
Matt Klinman: I really hope we figure out
something for libraries to become,
Matt Klinman: because a lot of them
are beautiful. If they become
Matt Klinman: 3D printing centers or
something like that.
Matt Klinman: I think that would
be fantastic.
Zack Poitras: 3D printing. Yeah. I could see that
being a nice use for it. Yeah.
Matt Klinman: Check'em out, or you just check
out Time. That's what you do right now.
Zack Poitras: You check out Time.
Matt Klinman: Do you know how much stuff at
this point, I'm very proud of this,
Matt Klinman: 20% of the things I carry
on me are 3D printed.
- Really?
- Yeah.
Zack Poitras: Do you have one
in the Batcave?
Matt Klinman: Yeah. Yeah. We invested
early in Stratasys one.
Matt Klinman: Those are like the big
industrial 3D printers.
Zack Poitras: Hey. That's fascinating.
Zack Poitras: Who's your favorite villain?
Matt Klinman: You don't seem that
interested in 3D printing, God.
Zack Poitras: I am!
Matt Klinman: This is the future
we're talking about.
Zack Poitras: I pretty much am the first
3D printer if you think about it.
Matt Klinman: You'r not interested. You're
jealous, because we
Matt Klinman: can create stuff too.
Zack Poitras: Oh, I think it's great. I'm
just looking at the fact
Zack Poitras: that I have Batman here,
and I don't want to waste all
Zack Poitras: of my time just talking about 3D printing.
Matt Klinman: Well Batman's interested
in 3D printing.
Matt Klinman: You want to talk to Batman,
you're going to talk about 3D printing.
Zack Poitras: Go 3D print yourself a bat,
okay Batman. Do you know
Zack Poitras: what I mean? Then you'd
have a great day, right.
Matt Klinman: That's actually a fun idea.
Matt Klinman: I should 3D print my own
favorite bat, and it'll have
Matt Klinman: super long ears, and
it'll have four wings.
Zack Poitras: Well, that's all the time
we have here on Good God.
Zack Poitras: Thank you Batman. I can't wait to
see what happens with you--
Matt Klinman: Are these actually
sharp? Ow!
Matt Klinman: Ahh!
Matt Klinman: Ahhh!
Zack Poitras: Wow.
Matt Klinman: Ahhhh!
Zack Poitras: Today's episode has been
brought to you by steam.
Zack Poitras: Steam. It's that kind of
cloudy stuff that comes out
Zack Poitras: hot showers. It feels so
good on your body.
Zack Poitras: I can't recommend it
enough. Steam.
Zack Poitras: Check it out. I
made it. I love it.
Matt Klinman: Alfred, my hand!
Zack Poitras: Alfred's not--
Matt Klinman: Ahh!
Zack Poitras: Alright, this has
been Good God.
Zack Poitras: God out!

Zack Poitras: I think it's--
Matt Klinman: ♪ I've ♪
Zack Poitras: --the grave. I don't think it's the plane.
Matt Klinman: It's not the plane?
Zack Poitras: Yeah. I think it's kissed by
a rose from the grave.
Matt Klinman: No. It's on the plane. Somebody's
selling roses on the plane.
Zack Poitras: This song is not about
selling roses on the plane.
Matt Klinman: That's why I've
been singing it.
Zack Poitras: What about that
dictionary part?
Zack Poitras: ♪ Even if you brought a

- No, I guess I never really.
Zack Poitras: I think we're both wrong.
Matt Klinman: Yeah. I guess
we're both wrong.
