TBTL (Too Beautiful to Live) is a daily weekday podcast from Luke Burbank and co-host/producer Andrew Walsh. It is about life, current events, popular culture, puttering, serial boat ownership, and night pants. Hotline: (206) 414-8285.
#3513 Whiffs Of Winkler
A surprise attendee at the trial of the year reminds Luke and Andrew of Lucille Bluth. Or maybe George Bluth? Or is he more like Steve Buscemi in 30 Rock? We’ll figure it out. Plus, plant burglars are swiping valuable bonsai trees across the Twin Cities, and it’s kind of heartbreaking
#3512 The Brown Mile
The people of Trinidad are not happy with Nicki Minaj’s controversial claims about “her cousin’s friend” who supposedly experienced unusually personal side-effects of the COVID vaccine shot.
#3511 Luke's Strong Grandpa Energy
Luke and Andrew remember comedian Norm MacDonald, who died much too soon. And an anonymous listener describes how they were taken-in by the same exact printer/toner scam that we talked about last week.
#3510 You’ve Got Newsletter
Luke and Andrew call-up Kiki Lolo, who has a big personal announcement to make (and some RomComs to recommend.) Plus, Nicki Minaj riles the internet with an anti-vax tweet that is...dubious at best.
No Point Conversion: Some Offense
The Seahawks and the Browns both looked very good in their season openers yesterday. Sadly, only one of them won. It’s okay, though. It’s going to be okay.
#3509 Divide and Concur
Luke spent the morning wrestling with some cockamamie app with a terrible name in order to attend a virtual conference. Speaking of meeting software, some people are developing “Zoom Dysmorphia” after seeing themselves on their own computer screens all day. Also, Andrew drops the ball on several jokes, not unlike Nick Chubb in yesterday’s Browns game, which we WILL NOT talk about.
My favorite. Just don’t ask me to explain why.
Always enjoy the audio drops in the episodes, although I think there are mostly men represented in the drops...sometimes I think about that.
Thank you for being there everyday. I look forward to your conversation each day.
