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 Tonight Pants. Hotline: (206) 414-8285.
#3721 It’s My Way Or The Subway
Andrew is very agitated about upcoming changes to the sandwich menu at Subway. Luke had a real scare with his cat, Bubbles, this morning. And a listener needs help navigating a small-ish issue with his neighbor.
#3720 I’m Not A Lawnmower Man, I’m A Lawnmower, Man!
Luke and Andrew began their 4th of July Weekend hoping to get a lawnmower and a dog, respectively. Today they report back on their adventures.
#3719 Yes, Mayhem
Luke’s attempts to get his hands on a lawnmower continue throughout the show, as he receives many updates and mixed messages from hardware stores around the Pacific Northwest. Plus, the internet is desperately trying to find the woman who won almost all the cooking prizes at a Virginia-Kentucky district fair.
#3718 Yo Gabapentin
Andrew’s dog-ological clock is ticking again, Luke runs into issues buying a new lawnmower, and the Marsupial Gurgle website is entering a new phase of life.
#3717 It’s A Zeller’s Market
Bubbles the Cat got up to a lot of trouble in Luke’s studio yesterday, almost completely sabotaging today’s show. Plus, employees at Medieval Times want to unionize, Bed, Bath and Beyond stores may be cutting air conditioning to save money, and AirBNB says “no more parties!”
#3716 The Rural Brewer
Andrew went to the dump yesterday, where he hoped to avoid getting “hollered at.” Results were mixed. Plus, Luke is in email hell. And a drunk man in Japan lost a thumb drive containing personal and banking information of a half a million people.

Listener for life
TBTL has been a part of my daily life for about 6 years. I love it and I don’t know why. That’s part of the charm and draw. Keep up the great work Luke and Andrew!
My favorite show! Been listening for 11 years and don’t miss an episode!
Love the podcast but…
Please please for the love of god stop talking about wordle. There’s a few podcasts I listen to that do this and im starting to suspect it’s actually paid advertising. Spending an excessive amount of time talking about a phone game is crazy making. I just fast forward. But I hate doing that! Love everything else.
