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.
TBTL Friendo Phyllis “Fletch” Fletcher stops by to talk about her newest journalistic endeavors and to help Luke and Andrew announce the new TBTL-a-Thon donor gifts!
#3687 You’re On Thin Eggs, Buddy!
Now Luke’s having TBTL-a-Thon stress dreams, and he’s locked in Kafkaesque a battle with his internet provider. Meanwhile, Andrew shares some fond memories of winters on Lake Winnipesaukee.
#3686 Get A Load Of This Kai
A quick mention of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out becomes anything but quick once Luke discovers a special YouTube video related to the topic. Plus, Andrew is trying to take lessons from his stress dreams as the TBTL-a-Thon approaches. And a kid named Kai got to live his own dream when he was invited to drum with Pearl Jam.
#3685 Big Clammy Energy
Luke and Andrew wonder which one of them would win if they arm wrestled each other, but they make no plans to do so. They also inexpertly discuss the design flaws of some of the Galactic Empire’s transport vehicles.
#3684 And You Don’t Believe In A Todd?
Luke joins the show from the storied Algonquin Hotel in New York City, where he’s doing his best “Dorothy Parker After A Long Jog” imitation. Meanwhile, Andrew’s anxiety about the upcoming TBTL-a-Thon is reaching new, albeit unjustified, heights.
#3683 Deuterocanonical Deets
Luke and Andrew discuss cats, kittens, Showtime at the Apollo, smokeless tobacco, Baz Luhrmann screeners, TBTL trivia night, cycling, lawnmowers, tractors, Tweety Bird t-shirts, and, of course, the Shroud of Turin.
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.
