#423 (Recap): More of an El Ropo than a Criss Angel

We’re pretty sure we won’t get memberships in Illusionists Local 4309 after this show, but it’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make. Christy, Mike, and Ann take the opportunity provided by a content-lite week of TBTL to go heavy on our own stories. We’ve got a Boogie Nights anecdote, some medical mishaps (both past and present), and the worst hold music experience ever. TBTL-related topics include but aren’t limited to: what makes the best kindling for a prison riot, Prince’s potential home court advantage, the skin-crawling awfulness of live Q&As, and we seem to keep circling back to breakfast carbs. Plus, a long, detailed conversation regarding the many attractions at the MN State Fair. Sorry, but it had to be done.


This TBTL Week in Review recaps episodes 2974 through 2968 (300th shows, Buck Dustwell, Bonvoy, Paisley Park, John Travolta, octopodes, vegetarian butcher shop, THING Festival, Chris Gethard, illusionists, waffles, MN State Fair, Brandi Brown).
