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 #458 - Fins Up (2/2018)

Oh Hi, Mark,

Well, well, well...look who decided to come crawling back. Think I'd forgive you? Well, you are right. Another week in the books as the year continues to fly by. Laughter really does help when there are so many sad stories in the news as of recent. I hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. If you're single, I love you. If you're in a relationship, I love you. Well, enough with the love talk...here's what we discussed on the show.

We're getting closer and closer to so many events. The most important one is my birthday.  Make sure you come out to the "Pre-Cruise Party" at Red Cypress this Sunday (the 18th). Samantha's got a BDM meetup at Disney tomorrow (17th), and her show's one year anniversary is next Friday (23rd) at Dead Lizard. I'm excited about the cruise next month. I'm gonna wear a bathrobe everywhere and enjoy the words "ALL YOU CAN EAT." I'm fatter than ever. Hopefully, you'll be on the cruise too. If not...I love you.

Be kind and listen to The Cramps. Pretzels is the same.

Show #457 - Penis Shaped Bologna (2/2018)

Hey bud,

How are you? Me? Oh, I’m good. Pretty fun and busy week here at T and D Media. The event at BB Kings last Saturday was a blast. I can’t wait till we announce all the details for the 9th Anniversary show. I’m more excited for that than the cruise, which is saying something because I’m stoked for the cruise.

I wanna say thanks to everyone for being super nice and cool at the BB Kings event. Make sure you come out to the “Pre-Cruise Party” at Red Cypress on the 18th. Lastly, just want to say  Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovers out there. Been single for the past 28 Valentine’s Days, so I’m gonna take myself out on a nice date/look up pictures of my exes on Facebook and cry.

Be good and listen to Sleep.

Finesse Mitchell 2.0 (2/2018)

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

AGGTM - WE'RE BACK! (2/2018)

"From the hosts of the award-winning podcast “A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan” and Orlando’s Best Radio Show “A Corporate Time with Tom and Dan” comes a brand new broadcasting concept – “A Gentleman’s Guide To Manliness” (AGGTM). Combining forces with attorney, musician, and style powerhouse Steven Kramer, AGGTM is a weekly lifestyle based show that tackles all elements of the modern gentleman’s life. From what to wear to what to say, AGGTM tackles everything that makes being a man the second best thing in the world. We’ll leave number one to the ladies." 

Show #456 - Fifth Disease Slappy Cheeks (2/2018)

Hey everyone,

It's Lee again. We're back after Tom's vacation. He'll be on vacation again the last week of February so prepare yourself. Was nice to be back and making jokes again. Daniel spent his time off hanging at home and becoming a master chef. I stayed home and bought a new bed. Sam worked her real job because she's an adult and better than all of us. The show today was a ton of fun. One of my favorites since I started working here.

Show #455 - Don't Impress Me Much (1/2018)

Oh hey there,

Didn’t see you walk in. Lee here with some show notes for this week. Tom has been away for what feels like months and I don’t remember what Daniel looks like but I did beat South Park: The Fractured But Whole so I’m using my time wisely (I used the treadmill too). Our big BDM event is next Saturday, so that’ll fun. After that, we have the Cruise and then our super secret 9th Anniversary show. Can’t wait till we reveal all the info for that one.

This was recorded over multiple days so trying to remember all that was quite painful for my brain. I’m off to St. Pete to see Black Label Society, Corrosion of Conformity and Red Fang.

See you all next week,

Lee

Show #454 - 4 Hotdogs - 1 Bun (1/2018)

Hi everyone,

Lee here. My last post was magically deleted so let's pretend this is my first time writing on the site. Long week of recording as Tom is going to be away for 9 days. That means in 10 days we're gonna have some stories of bumbling and bad decisions. I'm headed to Porky's with Sam and gonna treat myself after 2 weeks of eating like a grown-up who is also poor and single. The treadmill hurt my back so I guess exercise hates me as much as just laying in bed.
