#408 (recap): You’re a Dirtbag, No Judgment

#408 (recap): You’re a Dirtbag, No Judgment

In the wise words of Stefon, this LRB has everything: alcoholic Oreos, garlic tips, crappy cars that blow only heat, Stephen Tobolowsky, ironic cybersecurity training, Mary McDonnell, and, of course, Deeznutz.

Join the Coven (™) for all that and much more, including Ann’s potential move to Pasadena, Hillary’s fear of seeing Toy Story 4 (spoiler alert - she cried), and the President basically ruining Meredith’s grandfather’s funeral (as usual).


Finally, Beverly Hills is the worst and Sneakers is the best.

Also, as mentioned, here is a fun article on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of Sneakers!

#407 (recap): We Are the Gross Ones

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.

We’ve all been there – feeling nervous and slightly sweaty as we attempt to impress a stranger so they will eventually pay us money. JOB INTERVIEWS. I’m talking about job interviews, you pervs! The TBTL fellas have a rich history of awkward or embarrassing experiences trying to (or trying not to) get a gig, and have no problems recounting the particulars. Christy and Ann are ready to dig into the details of Luke’s commercial auditions, which provide a motherlode of material, and puzzle over the shady business practices that forced Andrew to tank an interview in beautiful Boise. We also take the opportunity to share some of our own awkward interview experiences, including the time Christy was forced to take a photographic pop culture quiz, and how Ann’s accidental networking triumph spanned three decades, two countries, and two sets of gossipy parents. Feel free to call or text the LRB voicemail at (802) 432-TBTL to share your own interview nightmares (we don’t want to lose the number!).

#405 (Recap): The Kangaroo is TBTL

#405 (Recap): The Kangaroo is 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).
