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!)

T&Dメガミックス 2.0 (T&D Mega Mix 2.0) (6/2018)

Hey, there Mediocre family. 

It's Dan, (Tom, Sam, and Travis are all here too) coming at you from AMTStudio3. Today is a tough one. You guys listen to the show, so you know that our families - all families for the most part - have their fair share of tragedy. Yesterday, my wife Andrea lost her younger brother Jon to a motorcycle accident.

I know that many of you knew him - had met him - maybe even cruised with him on a "Tom and Dan Cruise." Jon was a wonderfully caring man, and I will miss him every day. My relationship with him was not as good as I would have liked and that hurts me to my core. Because I'll be handling family stuff, we will not have a live show today. I'm very sorry, but I know that you guys understand. Many of you guys have reached out to both Andrea, and I love you for it. It is THIS sense of community and love that makes this job so unique.

I love you, Jon. I miss you, Jon. 

...

Thanks to Tom and Samantha for helping me gather a "Mega Mix" for you. Hopefully, these cuts make you laugh and smile. I know me and the entire "T&D Media Team" laughed and enjoyed revisiting these classic cuts. 

I love you guys!

Show #475 - Real Man Dad Contest! (6/2018)

Hey there, gang!

It's Sunday morning, and I'm sorry I was sleeping on the show notes. I've been trying not to work as much when I get home, and this weekend, I was reasonably successful at that. (Although, I will say that now I'm working and when asked what I wanted to do for Father's Day, I told Andrea and Maisie that I wanted to wash my scooter and rehang the curtains at the studio. Jesus. That's about as lame as it gets.)

Happy Father's Day to all of the Fathers that listen to the show. Tom and I are both in that category, and we love it. It's hard and fun, but hell - you guys know all of these "family cliches" - Hahaha..." it's a different world down there."

On this week's show:

*The great diaper challenge with Fisher (BYOCB Podcast)

*Batbot story

*Put your ding dong on the ping pong

*Inappropriate childhood memories

*Snoop Dogg's new game show: "Joker's Wild"

*Tom's Matouk dooks

Thanks, as always for listening and special shout outs to all of you who are taking advantage of the new "Tom and Dan Love-o-meter." Tom and I think that this will be huge for the company and will hopefully allow us to move further away from the typical corporate model that people have been using for years. We love you guys!

Tony Rock 2.0 (6/2018)

This show is pretty self-explanatory. 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
