This week we get completely interrupted by a Frankenstorm hurricane named Sandy. While many lesser podcasts would say, "Sorry everyone, we can't record this week." We said, "Sorry everyone, we can't record this week." and then did a Live Google+ Hangout anyway. If you really want to fully experience this episode you'll watch it on our YouTube page since there are a few visual jokes and the audio is kinda sorta terrible. However, we do discuss our new apartments, hurricane preparedness and not much else in this terrible fake episode.
This week we're talking extreme stunts. From Felix Baumgartner's extreme jumping out of a space capsule to David Blane's getting electrocuted by 1 million volts for 72 hours, October has been a month more extreme than most could even imagine. But are these extremes acts of heroics, or do they just require someone being stupid enough to try? Also this week a million-dollar idea for running a kissing brothel, Tim discusses trying to help out Greg Kinnear while sitting in the audience of Late Night with Conan O'Brien and instructions about how you could possibly win a $50,000 cash prize by coming to our live show in New York City at The PIT on November 16th! (Disclaimer: You can't.)
Hey, let's get down to business here. Week after week, Tim and Tom spend an hour talking about a bunch of nonsense that, frankly, isn't all that important. Well, all that is going to change this week. Finally, we sit down and talk about something of substance: the 2012 Presidential Election, the most important election of any of our lives.
Of course, before getting into the issues, we talk about Tim's new health kick. Oh, and Tom getting slapped in the face on a subway. And also we talk a bit about a very interesting new costume he spent a lot of money on for Halloween this year. And then real quick we talk about DNA testing.
But then, finally, we talk about the important issues of our day. Well, first we do another installment of the hot new segment Fifty Shades of Tim, in which things start getting pretty sleazy. After that, though, it's time for a brutally honest political conversation. Just as soon as Tim explains his idea for an explosive ending to our NYC live show on November 16th.
So, listen to this episode for a frank discussion of the important issues of the day and then get out and vote!
October's the time for outdoor autumnal activities. In Tom's case that means traveling to Long Island to tour wineries, go pumpkin picking, visiting a corn maze and running into Arnold Schwarzenegger in Manhattan. In Tim's case that means going to the Bronx to walk around a cemetery at night with a bunch of elderly people, which of course leads to a debate about the reality Michael Jackson's Thriller video is set in.
This week Tom recounts his recent trip to Chicago and the midwest for the first time ever where he discovers how big lakes can be (really big), the numerous ways entrepreneurs are ripping off the Chicago Cubs, and lazy facial hair. Also the guys solve a listener problem concerning what type of gift is appropriate for a new "fauxmance's" birthday.
