    Revenge Hoodies, How To Go Viral, The Return of Tony

    Revenge Hoodies, How To Go Viral, The Return of Tony

    Andrew Hunt is back and he just went viral on Tik Tok. We have questions. Robin Shorr, with whom I'm now trauma-bonded, is here and I need more details about her nickname. Tony Thaxton is back and the offer to pay me handsomely for in person shows still stands and has increased. I'd have to be some kind of fool not to take it. Plus I recently went to a lovely home that was so tidy it once again makes me wonder how it is that people can be so organized. How do they do it? And the return of deleted tweets and Daniel's least favorite hoodie!

    Colt Cabana's Secret Ointment, Robin Shorr's Nantucket Nickname, An Upsetting Hot Dog Metaphor

    Do I have what it takes to be a wrestling fan? I'm beginning to doubt it. Does Colt Cabana have what it takes to cut it on Nantucket? Please savor that rhyme. Robin Shorr just returned from the preppy island and had to report her weight to the airlines. We meet Colt's puppy, discuss road rage, Summerfest, Backstreet Boys, The Staircase and more. Plus Just Me Or Everyone and a suggestion for something to google that I will never google.

Why you Should Listen

While Alison Rosen may be the name on the marquis, the appearance of the show's producer, Tony Thaxton, and the witty banter is a great reason to tune in. While his appearance is brief, its clearly the highlight of each episode. But seriously, Alison's ability to interview and ask insightful questions that you don't hear on other interviews is a special skill. Her ability to make Daniel's rants hysterical is also a nice touch.

Could Alison’s neuroticism be more annoying? You’re 46 buttercup, get over yourself.

Mister Rpederso ,

Bunch of dummies. Real dummies.

Alison is reaching for fancy words this week. Leveraging her Pomona College education. She thinks spiel and camaraderie are schpiel and camraderie. Nobody on the podcast says anything. Not Daniel and not guests. Nobody. It’s embarrassing. Daniel is no prize so he just sits there like a lump and says nothing. Later, Daniel musters up a sentence but then murders it with macademia nut, like academia nut. Jesus Daniel, just sit there quietly please. Suggestion for Alison. Next time, instead of spiel and camaraderie, just use speech or story and teamwork or cooperation.
