you should listen to this show
i just spent my day in bed with my cats listening to a weeks worth of tbtl. this was the best/saddest day of my life.
The group that comprises TBTL are a great bunch of friends who make radio awesome. They have a great sense of humor and are very smart and keep things very interesting. Radio has never been so entertaining with segments like: Wednesday's with Gary (Busey), teaching us the great wisdom that is Gary Busey, Awesome, Not Awesome, On the Bubble with Mike Pesca, Cooking with Sean. It is just a lot of fun listening to this show and it is so entertaining that the show seems to be too short many times. If you don't get the inside jokes right away, don't worry, you'll learn quick.
totally inane and totally addictive
this show gets under your skin. first you think it's way too insider, then one day you realize that you get all the inside jokes, and you can't stop listening. plus, the podcast rocks because you skip all the commercials and lame newscasts. TBTL is podcasters!
