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!)

SHOW #424 - SHOW ME YOUR SNIFTER (6/2017)

Hey there kids! 

Another Dan "breakfast post." The smell of bacon and eggs is still lingering in the air, and the ladies are trying to figure out what the hell we're going to do today. I want to go to the pool but A and Mai want to go to the park. Why do I get the strange feeling that I'm going to get outnumbered on this one?!? It's just too hot for the park! Dammit! 

...

So, this week was one for the books! We did some really, really, really amazing shows and had the honor of getting to spend more and more time with one of our favorite comedians, Bert Kreischer. Honestly, that dude could not be any cooler and if you have not already checked out our interview with him, please do. He insisted that we knock out 3 full hours of a show and then he even stuck around for ACT later that afternoon. He's a frigg'n trooper! (He got a few more shows this weekend but as far as I know, almost all of the shows are already sold out. You might want to call The Orlando improv now if you're on the fence about tickets.)

As far as the Friday Free Show goes, we had a really great one of those as well. We had the opportunity to sit down with a current cam model and her boy friend go behind the scenes on how they use it as a business. It's fairly interesting stuff and they were beyond cool to come on the show and be so candid. Here's what else was on the show:

-Tom got too drunk with Bert Kreischer 

-Tom’s muscle milk shoes

-C*m box

-Invisible poo

-Road rage

-John Depp

-Cam girl Cat

-Poo poo goods

-Big Tom Purple

-Tributes

Well, that's about it for us. That was one hell of a week of broadcasting and we really hope that all of you wonderful listeners out there really enjoy it. Tom and I had a fantastic time - we're a little tired - but we're more than ready to do it again next week and we hope that you'll join us. 

All the best,

Bert Kreischer Interview 2.0 (6/2017)

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 #423 - DRIBBLE DOWN YOUR BODY DUCKS (6/2017)

Hey there gang! 

It's Dan, coming at you from the ol' breakfast nook in the Dennis Casa. I just got done making the ladies some bacon and eggs and now we're trying to get into something before I have to go and work the Orlando City Soccer Club match tonight. 

Thanks to ALL that tuned in yesterday for the trial run of the Tom and Dan 360 camera. Much love and thanks to our client Bart Marek for sponsoring that and helping foot the bill for a fairly pricy piece of studio equipment. I know that some of you loved it - and I also know that a few people were concerned about the quality. Let me be the first to say that the quality of the feed is purely a Facebook issue. From all of my tests, YouTube and Facebook really compress and dumb down the quality of these feeds. I'm not really sure why but it just don't seem to get better no matter what settings I read about or try to dial in. It's strange. You would think that they would want to support something that's so cool but whatever. We'll just keep testing and messing with it and hopefully it will get a little bit better. Tom an I hope that you all enjoyed it and for those of you with negative comments - I don't know what to tell you. We can't please everyone. 

Well on that note, we really hop that you enjoy the show and we'll see and talk to you guys next week!

SHOW #422 - SHOW YOUR PEACOCK (6/2017)

Well...I'm, personally, taking another trip around the sun.

As I type this, it's the "week-eve" of me turning 41 and it's only me and Tom left in the studio. He's in his office working on some client billing and whatnot and I'm trying to get this show out for you - ASAP. Apologies for doing the show on a Thursday, but we're both hightailing it out of town and we're going to try and take a little time off this weekend. Also, my daughter's birthday is 3 days after mine so the trip and celebration are certainly more for her and not me. I've done this enough. :)

Today we were graced with the presence of none other than one of our favorite comedians, Dan Cummins. For those of you that don't know, Dan has a podcast called "Time Suck." Besides being an extremely funny comic, Dan is a hella smart dude and most of the content that he gets into on his 'cast is just that - smart shiz. We really think that you'll like it and if you haven't already checked it out, please do. He's the man. 

On this week's show:

-Dan Cummins is HERE!

-Tom can’t hear

-JFK theories 

-Sheds

-The dark web

-Dan Lackofflatulance

-Sex robots

-Professional drunk driving

-Peacocks

-Gummy bear reviews

-Preacher Lawson from "America's Got Talent"

On that note, I would like to personally thank all of you for taking the time to download, listen to, and support our little podcast. We love bringing this to you each week and we hope that you have just as much fun listening to it as we have to create it for you. And on that note, I'm going to get my behind home, pack the car to leave for tomorrow's birthday trip to Disney!

All love, guys!
