Matt Walsh

Matt Walsh is known to many as Trotter of the Upright Citizens Brigade. To others, he’s Kevin Beekin from Dog Bites Man or Ranger Glen from Reno 911. To less observant non-nerds, he’s “that guy” from The Hangover, Role Models, I Love You Man, Semi-Pro, and Step Brothers. To us at Earwolf, he’s one of our favorite guests!

In 2016, a documentarian named Markus Tronque disappeared. The last person he was seen with was his nemesis, Michael Moore.

Back in 1989, Tronque was in Mexico filming a documentary about the urban myth of a rat-found-in-a-coke-bottle. Suddenly a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit, trapping him in a collapsed building. Amidst the rubble he meets Daisy Phipps, a young woman who would change the course of his life forever.

Morgan Pickles introduces this bizarre mystery centered around Markus Tronque, the man who wasn’t Michael Moore.

Episode features: Matt Walsh, Horatio Sanz, Joe Nuñez, Madeline Walter, and Brad Morris
