A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan Show

Tom and Dan were once sitting in a hotel room in Daytona Beach, Florida where the air-condition didn't work, they were out of beer, and the cable only had 2 channels that came in static free. One of their friends suggested that they leave and attempt to find something better to do to which Dan replied "Why would we want to ruin a mediocre time?" If you were to ask "Tom and Dan" what the meaning of life is, they might tell you that there is none. Born from a feeling that nothing in life truly matters and that for the most part we're all surrounded by scumbags, "Tom and Dan" figured out that there's only one true constant in life; laughter. How did they come to that conclusion? It's all they have. You see, just like the mass majority of us, "T & D" have day jobs and it was at said day job where they cued in on the fact that some of the greatest laughs came at the end of the day. There's just something about the relaxed feeling of knowing that you have very little time left at work to put in. Maybe it's the "punch drunkenness" of still being at work; no one is quite sure. There they sat in their office, the door shut to their co-workers and management, only making each other laugh to the point of tears. Finally they realized that it might not be such a bad idea to roll tape on these conversations. Why not? They would be having them anyway, taped or not, and it was fun. Both of them come from rather lengthy broadcasting careers so setting up a home studio wasn't so hard to do. And with the addition of Ross, the consummate straight man and "News Dad", things got even more "mediocre." Broadcasting since 2009 has garnered a rather extensive following for "T & D" with loyal "scumbags" (as their listeners are affectionately known) checking in from all across the world. Hundreds of shows under their belts and winners of the Orlando Weekly's "Best of Orlando 2011" for "Best Kept Secret" reassures them both that yes…no one is listening! (Best Kept Secret? HA!)

Maz Jobrani Interview 2.0 (10/2018)

This show is pretty self-explanatory. Basically, if the title includes the word "Interview" and then a proper name, you can pretty much bet that's exactly what you're going to get. In this day and age, most everything requires a "description." We don't believe in that. Just call us old school. It might also be one of our many special features or bonus shows. Wouldn't a perfect description of it sort of ruins the surprise of releasing a new and special show for you? Or we might just be being completely lazy - you'll never know. We hope that you enjoy the show and thanks, as always, for the love and support! - t&d

Show #489 - T-Birds (9/2018)

Happy International Podcast Day 2018! 

We're not really sure what the means, but it's a thing. It seems like everything has its own day these days. Hell, even me and Tom have a day. I think it's in March or something. Could be April. No idea. I digress. 

...

For years now, Tom and I have been bringing up the topic of testosterone and who's high and low. Dan has an insatiable sex drive...Tom has little to no emotion and is as cool as a cucumber. Does any of this have to do with high or low "T"...we have no idea, but alas, this is a bit that we had wanted to do for years. What were the results? We guess you'll just have to give it a listen and report back. 

On this week's show:

  • PA Marze is here to reveal the testosterone results
  • Tom’s spaghetti D
  • Hyper Gonad man!
  • BRING ON THE ROIDS!
  • Tom doesn’t want bird bones
  • P tumor
  • Butt chugging a 40 
  • Low-T machine gun
  • Busdeker wrote a book
  • “I hate anyone that is into anything.” - Tom Vann

...

Thanks to all of you who might have caught the show LIVE on @Twitch. You can always head over to www.Twitch.tv/TomandDanLive to watch old shows, clips, and find out more about our live video feeds. It's a whole different animal to watch the show, the facial expressions, and see all of the guests live on the "mediocre couch." 

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend and Tom, and, I will talk to you guys next week! 

All love,

Show #488 - 14 Years - No Puke (9/2018)

What an f'n show yesterday! Holy moly, that was a good one! 

I love me some John Busdeker, and it's always great to have his level of AUTHENTIC positivity vibe through the studio. Bus is a great guy, and it makes all of us here at T&D Media happy that his Orlando60 deal is flourishing. I don't think that there are many out there more worthy of some success. Make sure you check out Bus' videos and support of the excellent local businesses that he chooses to showcase. 

For those of you that were waiting to see what we were going to do with Butler as punishment for him almost ruining the charity footgolf tournament, you're going to have to sign up to be a BDM member. Tom made the executive decision of deciding that we would handle this matter privately (on the BDM show) on Monday. Hahaha...so, if you're going to want to be a part of that mess and you're not already a BDM, I think now would be one of the best times to sign up. So there's that. (Sorry Butler but you F'ed up in a HUGE way! Hahaha...) Tom's 90's pouch is throbbing.

On this week's show:

  • Seth has a Little Foot mushroom
  • Post-traumatic Migraine Disorder
  • Tom broke his non-vomit streak 
  • Crystal and the chicken bricks
  • Tom is a puke stander
  • Tom and Crystal are getting rid of the nanny
  • Esports
  • Braggy Beaver Jones
  • Busdeker tried out for Predators: Nerdio Jones
  • Seth and the Sugar Sweats
  • #NotGreg
  • Virtual backoff
  • Richard the Adequate stops by
  • Busker rules

Thanks again to Busdeker and Richard the Adequate for stopping by. Richard is another cool dude - he popped in and then just as quickly as he popped in, he popped out! A busker's life is never dull, and I got the feeling that staying one spot, even for a little interview put Richard in an awkward place. If you happen to see him downtown, give him some good ol' BDM love and throw him a few bucks for a trick. It will put a smile on your face and is a minimal gesture to a good soul. And on that note, we'll see you guys Monday. (Especially YOU, Butler! HAHAHA...)

All love,
