Podcasting icons Julie Klausner (Difficult People) and Tom Scharpling (The Best Show) team up for a fun show where they have fun and you have fun and everybody has fun. Each week, Tom and Julie careen through the best and worst of pop culture, giving the business to blockhead celebrities, rescuing shoddy podcasts, watching clips from the classics (The Munsters, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, etc), and hanging out with amazing guests, all in the name of keeping each other sane and making each other laugh. **The Best Podcasts of 2020, The AV Club** Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network.
Blocked by Alec Baldwin (with Andy Kindler & Kate Aurthur)
Having recently been blocked by Alec Baldwin on Twitter, Tom and Julie are joined by frequently blocked comedian Andy Kindler and a panel of blocked-by-Baldwin listeners, including Variety editor-at-large Kate Aurthur, to discuss the experience of being blocked by the celebrity actor (best known for supporting roles in State and Main and the Mission: Impossible franchise) and to come to terms with their conflicted feelings about the experience. They also discuss Alec Baldwin's life, career, and innumerable scandals. Plus Producer Brett joins Twitter (@breyyyattt) and tries to get blocked by Baldwin in real time. And an update on the Gerry email!
