I first discovered TR back in 2009 while working in a job that gave me ample amount of time to listen to podcasts. I enjoyed these three humans very much. I changed jobs and lost track of them around 2012. Today I was listening to a Timesuck episode on Walt Disney and a joke of theirs came rushing back to me. After minutes of trying to remember the name of the Podcast here I am. Reunited and feels so good!!
Pretentious, very biased and opinionated. I really couldn’t see a point to this show outside of just sitting around with friends stroking each other’s egos trying to sound intelligent.
Great Fun to be had...
