Hey baby! We are back on Thursday, post cruise! We somehow still are not 100%. You can tell this because Ryan's broken mixing board sounds like crap now, and he can't fix it. So sorry about the audio clipping, but it gets fixed about 20 minutes in, so stick around, because it was really fun at the end.

Mar 16, 2018

Hey baby! This was meant to be a two part special, but that didn't happen, so I just uploaded it as one episode. I am still hurting from that cruise, but what a great time.

Thanks for all your love an support

Hey Baby! Charlie was all by himself so he talked to some other podcasters and had fun!  We drank great beer, horse assed baseball players and even dildo rockets!  Thanks for being awesome as always! Sorry the edit at the beginning and end are a little wonky!

Hey baby!

Fun episode this week, which was COMPLETELY INTERRUPTED by a drunk lady who was coming from a funeral and decided she needed to be on our show. So there is that.

Feb 1, 2018

Hey baby!

We are back at it again. This episode is off the damn rails. Tim is sick, Ryan is eating, and Charlie is the only one keeping us on track. Enjoy!

Hey Baby!


We recorded this episode three times. THREE. Tim is going to hit Ryan with a hammer, and Charlie is gonna watch. So, yea, there is that.

Jan 18, 2018

Hey baby!

Writing these a day later I never remember what we talked about, but in this one I do. Big Tim starts by breaking up with a girl live from the podcast, which is really funny. The end is basically trying to find Petey Pablo's contact information so we can get him at one of our meetups. Its fun. You're fun. Thanks for listening. Now give me a dollar.

Jan 10, 2018

Hey baby!

Putting this episode out early because we feel bad about our Android listeners who use Stitcher not being able to access the show, and for once, that I on them and not us.


We discuss how comedy in this town is getting dangerous, Big Tim selling off a divorced couples stuff, and Bowie as the super hero "Rich Man".

Hey baby! This is a reupload of our latest episode because the Sticher app didn't add it to our playlist and we love our Android users! (Charlie and Ryan use it as well)We tried contacting them but have gotten nothing back so we are trying this again! So thanks for listening!

Jan 4, 2018

Hey baby! Hope your New Years went will. Big Tim was on the news telling people to "Just don't be dumb", so we hope that worked. Episode of the usual shenanigans with a late upload because some dude (aka Ryan) has a crap laptop... a craptop. But soon enough with people supporting us on Patreon we can get a new one. (shameless plug)
