Dirty pen jokes, teen stuff and Inception. All that and more in our very special 89th episode.
Join hosts Katelyn and Mathew on a wild ride through Wiki-space! Each week they play the Wikipedia game with a new topic as their target, discussing what they find along the way.
Dirty pen jokes, teen stuff and Inception. All that and more in our very special 89th episode.
Doppelgängers, fun facts and propane, oh my.

Our friend Mark Hintz returns for his second guest appearance. It's hot. Things go a little wrong. There's boy sweat. And bananas. And goo.
In a blatant effort to pander to our Kiwi listeners, we present this episode full of serious Ringhead trivia.
Recorded in Portland, in the same room (with one mic, hence the so-so audio). All you need to know about this episode is that Mat drinks the worst liquid known to man, on mic. It's... something.
Adam (@gains_tweets) joins us again to discuss disaster pants and butter buffoonery. We're back!
Coming at you live (no) from New York City (sorta). Mat drank too much coffee. Katelyn wants to go to Hungary. Toad might be Mario's kid. More thoughts on a Justin Lin podracing film. The movie "Care Bears II" has the most fucked up takeaway of all time.
Thanks for the topic @izzydoesnttweet <3
Our most musical episode yet. We're sorry? If you get tired of the Corey in the House stuff, blame Mat.
It's Hollywood's biggest night, baby. Question is, will ANYONE take the time tonight to recognize THE STARS? The men and women of the movies hardly ever get recognized for their contributions to culture. Well, tonight, we're giving them the respect they deserve.
Sorry we took the week of Valentine's Day off, but trust us — you're gonna fall in love with this episode. From our super-secret special guest to a totally productive conversation about lightsabers and Steve Jobs, this one has got it all!
In week 2 of our new whiskey incarnation, we're talking about graffiti, kissing the Master Chief, and wondering where New Zealand is.
Welcome to a new world full of fresh vile shit, protests against said shit, and mash-up albums. A world that definitely doesn't have as many wizrock bands as Wikipedia claims. A world... of whiskeycasts.
If you don't care about the game Half-Life and get weary of Mat's stories, you might not dig this episode. If you know what a resonance cascade is and want to hear about Gabe Newell's knives, you're in luck. If you like Basshunter, you've got a friend in Katelyn.
New year, new you, right? Via veritas vita, baby.
Is this the last episode of 2016 or the first of 2017... eh, who cares? Julie gave us this great topic, we're giving you our all (or at least Katelyn's highly-observant all), and we're genuinely so, so glad you've stuck with us. See you in the new year.
It wouldn't be a CYGTT Holiday Special without some questionable accents, curious winter sports, and some Mandela effect shenanigans going on. Stay happy and warm out there.
This isn't a holiday special. Consult your Putt Putt strategy guide to find out how to access that episode (hint: you gotta talk to Stephan Urkel first).
We're talking about our new favorite video game sweet boys and daddies this week. Come along and learn a little something about Hideo Kojima, the FIFA organization, and oh, yes, the mysterious "product" Katelyn's dad tried to buy from Malta.
Special guest Adam Fisher (@gains_tweets on Twitter) joins us to talk about why teens fall under objectivism's spell, hot (and not) philosophers, and political origin stories. Plus: getting down with the sickness when the boys return to town.
Our most nice episode yet. Join us on the wiki-road as we discuss big showers, big skies, radioactive countertops, tunnels through the Earth's core, Junji Ito, and whether you should pick a fight with your Gen-X idols on Twitter.
It's a beautiful day.
What's worse than breaking a bone in your foot?
A: The Golden State Warriors B: Putting out a self-titled album after your band's first release C: Naming a song "Jesus Stole My Girlfriend" D: Soundgarden
It's Halloween 2016. Quick question: Do you know where your third Hemsworth brother is?
Learn the definition of "Conimbricenses"! "Find out from TIME magazine who's REALLY terrorizing America! Download this episode to your lowercase 'i' capital 'P' phone before it's too late!
We're back and we're playing to Mario Kart! What's gonna pop out of this question mark block? Oh, it's discussions regarding Wikileaks, domming via phone destruction, and embarrassing nerd furniture.
The almost-missing episode. Audio problems plague this one, which is a real shame since it's such a banger. From Louis Sachar's child-friendly drug allegories to dissecting Genius annotations, it's important that we keep this one in the CYGTT canon. Get Twizted with us.
For our pal Johnny's birthday we selected this very magical episode topic. Hold on to your power crystals and channel this energy.
Dean Schmeltz joins us to hunt down a not-very-good theory from the world of Linguistics. We talk ginger snaps, "proper" enunciation, the show Leverage, stealing from craft services... oh, and the whole show is filmed during 4:20. Wrap your head around that.
In honor of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, we abandon Wiki-space and chart the undiscovered country that is Memory Alpha. We boldly go with our guest, John Mills, in search of little furry creatures that may or may not be edible.
Katelyn's here to rank the Kongs and to think of an anime that starts with the letter 'G'. Mat's just here to smoke butts and get mad when Katelyn opens Metacritic.
Johannes (@jmyrharkins) hooks us up with a topic. Then we talk about Tiny Zoos and Halo novelizations. Do we get to cat anatomy? Do we waste time discussing whether or not Mad Max is sci-fi? There's only one way to find out... (it's listening, listening is the way).
It's @JadeEggg with the suggestion this week that sends your hosts off in search of (1) tickets to the movie that will definitely justify Miles Teller's fame (2) a David Beckham to punch (3) and bootleg Adidas gear. Plus—still more evidence of a sad, desperate conspiracy amongst frisbee people to infect Wikipedia with their propaganda.
On what might as well be an episode of CYGTT: Nights (now 90% spookier), Mat and Katelyn take on Big Podcast and tackle this mysterious topic from Miles Fowler (@planeswalkerxvx). Katelyn shares her new idea on how to settle draws in soccer. Mat reminisces on his time in Model UN. Marc Maron shares his thoughts on dying under suspicious, perhaps yeti-related circumstances on a Russian mountain.
This week we're joined by Griffin Newman, who you can watch in Amazon's pilot for The Tick on August 19th! We try to use everything at our disposal—Australian movies, Star Trek-style diplomacy, and maybe Whoopi Goldberg—to get to our topic.
Follow Griffin on Twitter @GriffLightning (and use the hashtag #GRIFFINYES)
This week we're practically praying FOR a sports stub as our jumping-off point. Mat's going full (terrible) Brit to honour the lads of Arsenal, and Katelyn slips into it a bit as she recounts her Nando's experience. We also test Katelyn's memory vis-à-vis what topics we've covered over the last year.
Special thanks to AJ Fillari for this episode's topic!
Mat shares what he learned about New Mexico by watching the DNC. Katelyn prepares for a legendary trip in search of some Raucous Nandos. Both marvel at the wonders of CGI that make every ocean movie possible. Shout out to our bud Cody for this week's topic.
We take on another difficult topic suggested by Brian Click—this week it's Stanley Green, the Protein Man. SPOILER ALERT: We get pretty stuck and start talking about drug subscription boxes and the opposite of 69-ing instead of doing anything productive. Our bad.
Katelyn and Mat discuss Pokémon GO, talk about teeth trauma, and determine who the Canadian Patrick Swayze is. All this and more while Mat keeps checking his phone to rack up more stupid Pokéballs.
Brought to you by our corporate sponsors and the film SULLY.
Self-proclaimed number one fan Maarvi joins us for our fiftieth episode. It's all about Truck Huntin' with the best (non)intentions. Get down with our sickness.
Mark Hintz joins Mat and Katelyn to discuss a Polish war hero who also happens to be a bear. This episode brought to you by pictures of LeBron James, Brian Blessed's voice talents, and our new sponsor Tasty Beer.
"We all just start as a tube with a mouth at one end and a butt at the other." - Katelyn Best
Get yourself a CYGTT t-shirt and support the show before 7/18/16 at https://teespring.com/can-you-get-to-that
CYGTT turns one year old! We dedicate the episode to the origin of the show's name, get riled up about Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and discuss how the Spice Girls used to be all about Frank Herbert.
On the second installment of Can You Get To That: Nights, Katelyn takes John Williams to task over a career built on theft. Mat gives the lowdown on the time Reggie Fils-Aimé challenged children to Mario Kart at a McDonalds. And sometimes... to play the game right... you have to click through to Family Guy.
This one is weird. Katelyn is all cozied up in bed. Mat's sipping that golden nectar. Then all of a sudden, it's all Berlin Wall talk, timeline shifts, and what must (approximately) be the worst diss sign ever brought to a professional sports game.
(We got this topic from @gunboat, so if things are TOO STRANGE, he shares at least some of the blame)
In the time since recording this episode, the video of Guy Fieri eating to set to Johnny Cash's rendition of "Hurt" has been taken down from YouTube for copyright reasons. We sincerely apologize.
Katelyn and Mat are just two dorks trying to look cool while chatting about winter sports this week. Let us know what winter sports you think best analogize the evolution of rap music. (This week's topic brought to us by @helenzaltzman on Twitter!)
Katelyn and Mat end up trapped in the foxhole of wiki articles about war. Neither host has a stellar grasp on subjects like dynamite or lighter-than-air aircraft, but damn it, they try. Katelyn expresses some very particular qualms with Trinity in The Matrix.
Friendly reminder: the sun is a giant nuclear reaction in space that only wants to burn you with radiation.
This is a special episode of CYGTT. To say much more would spoil the fun, so dig into this mp3 file like you're dissecting an owl pellet.
It's Bring Your Kid to Work Day at CYGTT... but Katelyn and Mat need to cut loose and PARTY.
This week's topic is a totally real geometric phenomenon in nature and not another name for a creepy thing. Mat feels a little put out by Portland Pizza Week. Katelyn finds a wriggly surprise under the oven.
Julius gave us this week's topic – things just get more BRUTAL from there. Katelyn gives her account of human history prior to 1980. Mat busts out a deep-cut Europe story concerning a trucker in Slovakia. Beds are sniffed.
Before launching into the game, Katelyn and Mat get sidetracked by their pronunciation anxieties. But all words are just strings of beeps, so does it really matter? Just so long as others can understand what our word-beeps mean when we're using our future robot body neck parts, we'll probably be okay. (This week's topic comes to us from listener Nathan Quinn. Thanks Nathan!)
A suggestion from listener and good pal Mark Hintz sends Mat down a deep, dark Wikipedia hole. Katelyn grills Mat on his public radio knowledge. Neither host knows what "Internet 2" actually is, or are adequately able to explain the in-fiction distinction between hovering and flight.
This week we're joined by our friend Ann (@methodann on twitter dot com). We get kinda deep into video game talk. And metal talk. And, regrettably, Metacritic talk.
Katelyn and Mat set off in search of Nagini and stop to consider Lembas bread, Garth Brooks, and that shitty kid from Star Trek: TNG along the way. This week's topic comes to us from our friend Alejandro!
This week's topic comes to us from our friend Maarvi! Funny coincidence, that, as Katelyn and Mat take a moment to address their UK-dwelling audience. Also: Mat apologizes for butchering Hamilton. Katelyn apologizes for not remembering Bib Fortuna's name.
This week we discuss the most INTIMATE PLACES you can be kissed. If that sounds too sexy, don't worry: Mat forces a tangent about parallel comic book universes like 10 seconds later.
This week we're breaking all the rules. Recording remote. Having our guest host, Johnny. Playing the Wiki Game in Hard Mode. #justice4emotion
From people's real-life RPG stats, to the logistics of the galactic senate's architecture, to a discussion of "clutch power," this is definitely our most normal and relatable episode yet.
What's the best Eminem song to sing at a holiday party? Who's your favorite royalty? How do I finish Bumblebee Man's secret mission in Simpsons Hit & Run?
The devil pedals hard so that you all can enjoy your precious "gravity."
This episode's all about that Illuminati shit. S/O to our friend Johnny for the topic.
There are armed white dudes occupying federal land and monkeys can take selfies better than you or me. The world is screwed.
The podcast gets invaded by improv characters. But the guy we talk about... with the horns? He's a real dude.
Katelyn and Mat ring in 2016 with an hour-long meditation on what it means to love. Is loving the 80's different from loving Flavor Flav?
On the 4th day of Star Wars my true love gave to me: 4 Jedi Masters, 3 Fake Religions, 2 Wiki-races and a Ben Carson Fanart Drawing.
Happy 24th of Frimaire! This week's topic was submitted by a listener named Brian. If you want to be a cool person like Brian, hit us up with a topic!
Thisssssss episode is laaaaate because Maaaaat got laaaaaaaaazy (lip smack sound)
You'll never guess how we end up on the topic of "getting slimed on your deathbed."
In recognition of a week-long Bob Ross video stream, Katelyn and Mat pay their respects to everybody's favorite tree whisperer.
Were cartoons bad when we were kids? Probably. Is Shredder handsome? Definitely.
Keep Tonya Harding's webpage open in another tab for this one: www.tonyaharding.com
This week's topic is a song (ok, a music video) where Paula Abdul wants to bone down with a cartoon cat. Just an FYI.
Nostalgia: Katelyn and Mat remember the days when Can You Get To That? was (technically) a radio show... and the days when Ridley Scott made good movies.
¡Hola! Me llamo Bob Burnquist. Soy un hombre simulada.
What you WON'T find in this episode: Science. Soylent supporters. Podcast hosts who don't eat normal food and have normal bowel movements.
What you'll find in this episode: Before getting to the actual topic, the hosts discuss a sad (not really) Friday night Mat had, the difficulties of playing Dead Rising, Katelyn's MRI experience, and the movies "Twins" and "Junior." Then lots of Canada-talk happens.
What you'll find in this episode: Do you know even know what nábrók are? If you can't answer that, answer this: Do you think MIA likes salad?
What you'll find in this episode: Welcome to Capitalist Montessori School! Brought to you by Banksy and co.
What you'll find in this episode: Katelyn tells an unforgettable story involving a potato. Both hosts make very trite observations. Podcast song humming law is invoked.
What you'll find in this episode: In another timeline, this episode was about the band 311. Now we're in the Titor timeline.
What you'll find in this episode: Living in a Lincoln Log cabin. Technology: is bad? Also, truck goo.
What you'll find in this episode: HADOUKEN! TATSUMAKI SENPUKYAKU! METALLICA!
What you'll find in this episode: Mat doesn't finish his story about wiki-vandalism in the show. It ends, as many wiki-vandalism stories do, with genitals.
What you'll find in this episode: It's too hot in Portland, Mat considers a career in typesetting, and Katelyn recalls an encounter with an Australian.
What you'll find in this episode: In addition to Mix we spend some time on Nicki Minaj (of course) and Trent Reznor. Katelyn shares her strong opinions on wraps.
What you'll find in this episode: I really dig the part about conspiracy theory bunkers. Get it? Dig? Ehhhhhhhhh?
What you'll find in this episode: Eleventy-billion people agree that Kesha is the best, but half of them still have trouble putting condoms on.
