Double Threat

Tom and Julie make sausage while Brett tries to keep up with the casing on the grinder nozzle.

Lots of laff

Tom and Julie bring the top-shelf funny week after week and kid magician Brett amazes with his culinary delights and email prowess. I have learned more about the history of McDonald’s in the past year than I have about anything else, anywhere. It is great and the three have fantastic chemistry and I love listening every week. The guests are also great. I would love love love if John Waters could get booked. How do we make it happen?

Edit: just a content warning that at least once an episode, if not multiple times, Tom or Julie will longingly mention suicide. Sometimes it’s funny but other times it just brings me down big time. I know it’s a joke, but it’s not great for my mental health to hear that type of joke repeated weekly. And I appreciate and know they’ve both been open about their struggles with mental health and the suicide jokes are all hyperbole, I just wanted to mention it in case anyone else gets triggered in the same way I do. Other than that, no notes. Great show

Double Trouble Threat Brett

Move over Lewis & Clark, take a hike Sugar n’ Spice, see ya later Zappa & Diarrhea: A new duo has entered the pantheon of Best Ever Hall of Fame on Mount Rushmore All-Star #1 Prize (twosomes division) Winner: Tom & Julie. The epic comic stylings of these two living legends of laugh (LLL™️) keep up the chuckles at such a pace that your mirth meter is a guaranteed broken…from hilarity! But no refunds asked (or given) from listeners of this who’s who on first of comedy poddingcastables, we are too busy laughing (and loving) with love (and laughter), a combination that only comes along twice a generation: Once is that previously mentioned love/laugh combo and twice is the now mentioned Tom & Julie. Live, Laugh, Love, & Brett with Double Threat for now and for forever, dog.
