Ruining my son’s life

My 4 year old keeps yelling at me for laughing out loud at this show. He told me, “I don’t like hearing that noise from you.”

Easy listening with lots of laughs

I found this podcast through Don’t Ask Tig, which I found through Working it Out with Mike Birbiglia, which I found though Conan O’Brien needs a friend, which I found through some other podcast which I found through This American Life. This one is my new favorite. (Please don’t tell Conan, he couldn’t take it. In fact, you’re tied for first.) (I took a brief break to binge Season 2 of In the Dark, which is AMAZING but NOT uplifting enough for my pod needs.) Had to go back to ol’ Tiggle and Cher.

This is a perfect podcast. I listen while commuting to work and it helps me make it to work without any road rage and without any leftover thoughts of murders swirling around in my head for the rest of the day. Fellow commuters, please don’t be distracted by my laughter. I even find myself listening at HOME (in place of music) which is unheard of for me. Tig and Cheryl are delightful.

I didn’t cry while listening. And I find you both equally attractive in wildly different ways. I have also never watched any of the documentaries discussed because I feel that Tig and Cheryl really cover everything you need to know. Very thorough.

Listening from the beginning now because listening backwards made me miss the origins of all of Tig and Cheryl’s inside jokes. Huge mistake, now corrected. Please enjoy!

Hey pork tacos hey.

Sometimes I watch the documentaries after and then I realize I still prefer T&C.
