The Topic’s Covered Rock!

The topics they cover make me laugh so much! Hypothetical scenarios and the banter between the two are really great. Love the intro with the announcer and kid and the close of the show always make me smile, thanks so much! Keep up the great work.

Best podcast ever

I love the show. I look forward to Tuesday mornings. Tommy and Alex are great together. If you’re looking a show that is funny definitely check this out.

Alex Stone’s Kaufman-esque portrayal is genius.

Tommy Johnagin is a long-time favorite as a stand up and he definitely delivers here, his quick wits and undying commitment to a hypothetical scenario are pitch perfect. The truly amazing thing however is Alex Stone’s Kaufman-esque portrayal of the ideal imbilcilic host. He never ever drops the act, never fails to commit 100%. From his bizarre pronounciations (The yoyo-kay) to running gag of his complete inability to deliver on the “Local Sex” segment he never skips a beat. The most enjoyable bit is how somewhere in each episode will pick a truly unthinkable premise (For instance: A BMX bike that you use on dirt is called a “dirt bike”) and he will absolutely die on that hill with commitment. This allows Tommy to do what he does best. It is not often you can see such a sophisticated performance. Try it, you won’t be sorry.
