Tim and Tom are seasoned concert-goers, and this week they share some of their experiences, tips and gripes about going to see some of today's hottest rock and roll outfits. In this episode, we talk mostly about Tom's experience at a charity concert featuring Neil Young and the Foo Fighters, and a Radiohead concert 12 years ago at which Tim and Tom became true friends.

We also reflect on how we've each become the boring jerks at concerts we hated when we were teenagers and share tips for sneaking alcohol into shows and getting a refund at any concert you go to. In addition, we discuss Tom's hibernation habits and Tim's annual week-long stint at Math Camp. 

Finally, in another installment of Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems, we tackle a situation in which a listener thinks his girlfriend is being hit on at work.

This week the guys decide to take a look at three products defining the future of technology: The iPhone 5, MakerBot and Google Glasses. Before anything of substance is discussed though some housekeeping takes place in the form of Tim being admonished for last week's episode and Steven Tyler leaving the show. Later Tim is compared to a low-rent Watson who can't wait an extra day for his iPhone 5 to arrive, followed by discussion of texting via morse code and the time Tim was stuck up in the crow's nest of a cruise ship.

Moving onto MakerBot, Tim and Tom pitch the idea making robots with feelings so kids have someone else to bully before Tim reveals that he's actually owned a 3D printer since 1987. Can you use a MakerBot to make horrific weapons? Apparently. The episode is then wrapped up with by laying out the simple fact that Google Glasses are for assholes, and some action finally almost happens, sort of, on Fifty Shades of Tim.

On this week’s episode of The Complete Guide to Everything, we talk about the dating scene and go over some of the finer points of wooing a lady. Look, we realize it’s tough out there, finding a gal and convincing her to give you a shot, so naturally we consult the internet and go through the foolproof steps as outlined by wikihow.com.

We should probably mention that Tim probably drank too much whiskey before we recorded, and talks about a number of things that should probably stay private, but since this episode was uploaded a day late (the reasons for which we discuss at length), we’re trudging ahead with the episode as is.

In another installment of Fifty Shades of Tim, Tom describes another chapter of Fifty Shades of Grey in which things finally start getting hot and heavy in an elevator, prompting Tim to sing the hits of Aerosmith and reminisce about his time spent on Aerosmith’s Rock n’ Rollercoaster. We also solve a problem from a Bay Area woman who has some issues with a neighbor’s dogs in Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems.

Look, sometimes you want to do a podcast that will be informative and comprehensive, covering a topic in-depth and teaching the world a thing or two. And sometimes you'd rather discuss your feelings about former Family Feud host Richard Dawson and talk about carrying around a large stick of pepperoni in case you want a quick snack sometime. This week's episode falls into the latter category.

In a freewheeling discussion, Tim and Tom talk about working in a butcher shop, lewd jokes made by game show hosts, the problem with American cheese and boat murders, among other things. Also, Tom has some complaints about the way he was treated when he went to get an eye exam.

This week we also have another installment of our segment Fifty Shades of Tim, in which Tom explains Fifty Shades of Grey to Tim one chapter at a time, and we answer a listeners' question about a wedding gift in this week's Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems.

High concept experimental episode time! This week Tom bets Tim that if he watches 3 hand selected episodes of Doctor Who (Blink, The 11th Hour and Victory of the Daleks) he'd be bound to like it. Will he succumb? Well we're certainly not going to tell you here, that would be giving spoilers! Oh, also be careful for the end of this episode as it gives a bunch of spoilers for the first episode of Series 7: Asylum of the Daleks.
