Holy frijoles! Bobby, Mike, Hillary and Christy are on the line to recap the latest week that was, and sweating out of every orifice. (Sorry, just trying to live up to the title.) Join us for talk about Christy’s fake sleeping bus face, Hillary’s *terrible* joke, Mike’s war on centipedes, and Bobby’s creeping on a nearby listener. Oh, and some stuff from last week’s TBTL.
The TBTL-a-thon wrapped up in Australia (OR DID IT???) and your LRB hosts are making a quick getaway in our car (Foley included) so that we can use our outdoor voices without embarrassment. On deck for today’s discussion: television show longevity, driving in NYC, the popularity of Tim Allen, and our extraordinary contrariness. Hillary remembers the Alamo. Mike Has an Idea that might just work. Meredith is a victim of Oreo marketing. And Ann learned that triple scoops are for winners. Plus, science facts about ear-cleaning, the merits of meeting kangaroos in the wild, and we wonder how much you should tip your housekeeper in space.
Here’s the GoFundMe for Sherri's Walk of Hope - Alice Springs to Darwin. Thanks again to Ross for passing it along.
Good Day, Mates! Your LRB hosts have also traveled to Australia for this week’s TBTL-a-thon. However, instead of the fly-infested lands of the Outback, Hillary, Ann, Meredith, and Mike have landed on the scenic, populated, and desirable towns of Melbourne, New Brighton (New South Wales), Wagga Wagga, and of course, Pirates Bay, respectively. What a strange coincidence!
Though we are on the other side of the world, your hosts are still talking about some business back in the States including our recently established LRB core values (LEAD), Mike’s new pet, Theresa, and the grand opening of SH45SW. As with all things TBTL related though, everything inevitably comes back to food and poop. Shrug.
We’re all currently heading back to our normal studios, but bottom line for this week in Australia - LRB is firmly Team Robbie.
This TBTL Week in Review recaps episodes 2909 through 2913 (Australia, Opals, Pitch Black, Theresa Russell, Lobster, Coober Pedy, Real Housewives, Black Widow, SH45SW, Manchaca, Brodie, 1626, Peanut Butter, Great British Bake Off, poop, food, Madonna, Tennant Creek, Robbie, LEAD values, Quantas).
Mike, Bobby, Hillary and Ann recapped the latest week of TBTL complete with fiery hot takes, snappy one-liners, and a terrible idea for a restaurant. But, the Gods of Xcel Energy decided it was too beautiful to live. So instead, enjoy this lightning recap redux with Ann and Bobby, followed by a special listen back to the LRB recap from one year ago this week (ep 324) featuring a younger, prettier, probably-salad-eating Bobby, Ann, Meredith and Hillary. Take this as a reminder that, as always, if we don’t remember our TBTL/LRB history, we are doomed to repeat it.
Pull up a cushion and feel the rhythm, because Meredith, Ann and Bobby are here to party, and there’s room for one more in this sunken living room of the mind. In addition to a recap of the high notes (and low notes) of last week’s episodes of TBTL, Bobby gives an awkward HR update, Ann gets a cookware anti-intervention, and Meredith shares what it’s like banging with strangers seemingly forever.
