    Back Through the Basement Episode 61 - Gratitude and Riff Raff Farm ™

    Wow how time flies when you’re having fun in the Basement, going through old toys and memories!  Tom and Julee play the final Season 5 Game of Chance in this season finale.  This episode’s dice-roll brings forth a box of beloved treasures and a whole cast of characters whom the hilarious siblings create on the spot – there’s a potential future original animated project in that Reebok’s Box!!  Don’t miss one second of fun and “Keep” an eye out for Season 6!!!  We raise a glass (or a can of Zevia) to you and we thank you Keepers, our gratitude for you is unending!!

    Now in their forties, Julee and Tom Antonellis are reconnecting as brother and sister in THE MOST distant a socially-distant podcast can be in the United States.  While recording on each coast (and seeing each other over FaceTime) all the way from Los Angeles (Tom) to Boston (Julee), they start unearthing the core lessons, laughs and connections of their childhood.  Plus, Julee has to fight her fear of cobwebs while Tom enjoys the comfort of his office -- yet he CAN'T touch his beloved toys like she can.

    Tom rolled a die and got a "4" in the Season 5 Game of Chance and this Raggle Taggle Action Figure Bin DOES NOT disappoint!  A bin of superheroes, animated show merchandise, a few head-scratchers, loads of fun!  Tom and Julee “roll” down memory lane as treasure after treasure come “rolling” out…ok, ok enough "roll" jokes…better slow our “roll”… [comedic clear-of-throat; take a beat for laughter]......but seriously, get “rolling” into this episode – your “role” as a Keeper depends on it!!

    Back Through the Basement Episode 56 - NCC-1701 and Trivial Pursuit

    Tom and Julee cover aaaaaa lot of ground in this episode.  They start out with a bit on candy, then they slip into a handful of ON POINT impressions, Tom talks some major Star Trek, new game points are flying around and the oh-so-80s Trivial Pursuit is unearthed and launches a new set of in-show BTTB games and you can play along!  It’s a good time!

A must listen!

“Back Through the Basement” has been a life saver during this pandemic! Not only do Julee and Tom absolutely crack me up, but if you have siblings, you can completely relate to this podcast. Speaking of podcasts, I may be one of the only people in the world who don’t listen to a ton of ‘casts, but there’s something about “Back Through the Basement” that keeps me coming back. Bravo!
