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, exploring obscure American subcultures, 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. Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network.
Schlub Rescue 3 (with Willam)
Tom and Julie are joined by international Drag Superstar and Race Chaser co-host WILLAM for another round of Schlub Rescue! Featuring aspiring comedy writer Max Beneke and his terrible Twitter @MaxBeneke!
The Nancy Meyers Talk Show (with The George Lucas Talk Show)
Anything you can do, Tom and Julie can do it better. At least that's the theory we put to the test as the hosts of The George Lucas Talk Show-- George Lucas (Connor Ratliff), Watto (Griffin Newman), and Patrick Cotnoir-- join Double Threat for the first episode of The Nancy Meyers Talk Show hosted by Nancy Meyers (Julie) with co-host Nick Marshall from What Women Want (Tom) and producer Brett.

We hand out Superlatives for the Best Line of Dialogue, Most Creative Inclusion of Gerry, Best Threesome, etc. PLUS a pair of very special guests reads the Top 5 Finalists no matter how much Tom and Julie hate it.

Mental Health Check-In (Presented by Better Help)
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, the theme of this month's mental health check-in is RELATIONSHIPS! Producer Brett opens up a bit about being married during quarantine and more. Presented by BETTER HELP.
Tales from the Crypto
Settle in for a classic Tom & Julie episode featuring the queens of NYC public access television, Horowitz & Spector; the chaotic Handforth Parish Council on Zoom; a Danish children's cartoon about a middled aged man with a long prehensile penis; a button for couples who can't figure out how to synchronize their horniness; the return of the Milk and Cereal song; and Double Threat cryptocurrency!
The Chilogy: A Journey of Redemption & Discovery
It’s the third Double Threat episode with a focus on chili and this time Tom and Julie are going ALL IN BABY! After last week’s embarrassing Jack Nicholson debacle, in which Tom mistook an Onion photoshop of Jack spilling chili on himself at a Lakers game for a real photo, Brett books four chili all stars, including the heads of the two major international chili societies and the author of a series of chili cook-off murder mysteries, for a journey to redeem chili from the stain of the scandal, to restore Tom's self-confidence, and to return order to the universe.

Eggs and Queenie!!!
I love this podcast so much! Julie and Tom have the best comedy chemistry since Sean and Hayes. I wish they recorded a new episode every day.
Always been a lousy disloyal podcast listener—but this one? Can’t do without it. It’s spill-chili-on-my-cords funny.
Double Threat (Scharpling/Klausner)
I love this podcast. Tom & Julie can riff on anything and will make you laugh out loud, which is not a bad thing, what with the pandemic and all...
