Tom and a very sick Tim talk about the Olympics and naturally have a lot of questions about various events (mostly about the possibility of awarding medals to horses). Also, Tim talks chicken fingers and Tom reveals his past as an expert shotputter. There is a minor dispute regarding Summer Sanders and then we solve some listeners' problems.
A spoiler-free review of The Dark Knight Rises, how old is Alfred, a lesser IMAX, the problem with Baskin Robbins inside of Dunkin' Donuts, peeing during a movie, novelty home signs, a preview of The Complete Guide to Everything: After Dark with Algernon, Tim orders a breakfast wrap and learns that he's an old man, and a long, in-depth dissection of the New York Times' latest style piece about Williamsburg.
This week, we discuss the ins and outs of upcoming art film The Dark Knight Rises. Tom defends his Batman obsession to a skeptical Tim, and gushes over the new movie even though he hasn't seen it. We also go through some internet theories about the movie and discuss the possibility of making one's own utility belt. In addition, we talk about a street fair Tim recently went to and speculate about the private lives of dunk tank clowns and sausage vendors.
Old nerds, Tim's first podcast as a 7 year old, putting your seat back on an airplane, LA cab drivers, starting a cult, Disneyland and pronouncing Speed Demon correctly.
This week Tim and Tom learn a lot about singing sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, discuss the attractiveness of some of the characters on the Jetsons, and Tom talks about an experience at the ballpark. Then they break down the last 20 years of summer songs and realize that they are two, sad, out of touch men. Enjoy!
