It’s December 2018, and another year draws to a close at the Little Red Bandwagon. We’ve had a lot of fun talking about TBTL, as well as pop culture, sports, candy, pets (new and old), tasty beverages, the state of the world and our own lives. So for this month’s clip show, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of our favorite moments on our own show. Okay, they’re some of Ann’s favorite moments, since this was her idea and she was the one who trawled through the entire year to scoop them up. Listen as we discuss, argue and laugh our way through 2018. We hope you had as much fun listening as we had recording.
Mike, Bobby and Ann have punched the clock for our latest TBTL Week in Review, and they’re just hoping to make it through this bohemoth with as few sprinkles in unsavory places as possible. Mike has a surprisingly sound theory about Moby and Beck, Bobby has just discovered a little show on Netflix called Breaking Bad, and when it comes to TBTL showering love on our friends over at the Preheated podcast, Ann is feeling a lot like Luke’s crackers—a little salty.
This week, we’re coming in hot with takes that burn like salicylic acid. Meredith is calling out Michael Pollan. Bobby is correcting the record on the Golden Griffins. Hillary is slamming on The Doors. Mike is mad at avocados. And we’re all calling BS on both hippie mayo, and Andrew’s claim that he’s never had ranch dressing. (Unless, of course, he was raised strictly Catalina.)
Listen back with us to December 2015, when Bobby and Christy interviewed Christmas-loving Jew and Brooklyn Ten Stephanie Lee, and listened back to TBTL’s legendary Top 5 Modern Day Christmas Songs Mashup from 2011. We’ve got a quick update from Stephanie, who in the last three years was finally forced to give up her Blackberry and get an iPhone.
Welcome back to the LRB, friendos – Mike, Meredith, Bobby, and Ann have all survived another Thanksgiving unscathed, and we hope that you have, as well. Our roll holes are stuffed with some sort of carb (with butter, natch), so we’re ready to get down to the business of your latest TBTL recap. On the Burbank family menu this holiday: wet paper bag turkey, garbage bread stuffing, Aunt Mary Lou’s cheese-sprinkled broccoli salad, and potatoes of mysterious production methods. On the host front, Meredith has a dilemma re: some misdirected money. Ann pleads for an end to all the disgusting show topics. Mike’s as real as the poop in the streets. And things are going to start happening to Bobby now. Plus, a fire take on chopsticks, the menace of the Jolly Green Giant, an inside look at pizza conventions, how many people do you need to let the dogs out anyway, and the work of Soup Kitchen Stevens. Parades for everyone!
