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.

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.

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!

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)

Also check out PFT media's other podcasts, they are awesome!

Hey baby!

Thursday late post-Christmas episode. As I am writing this all I can remember is we talked about the Bear Pope and launching bears from trebuchets as an ultimate weapon.

Hey baby!

This was a fun episode we had a live audience at Johnny's Other Side, only problem was they kept giving Big Tim shots of $2 Jim Beam, so this episode goes all over the place. Hope you enjoy and please leave us a review, it really helps out. also support us on Patreon at

Hey baby! Most of this episode is just us talking about our show filled week and the good and bad of all of that all around. Thanks again to Johnny's Otherside for letting us "pod" there

Oct 26, 2017

Just want to get this out so I'll add a description later, but basically, what happens when you take Big Tim and cover him in butter then try and tackle him? Find out on this episode of PTB!

Oct 19, 2017

In this episode we talk about our trip to the Great American Cake, Fair? Fest. I can't remember and it's over now. Also we talk about T-Pain for way t long, so you know, average episode stuff.

Hey baby! We are back at it! Ryan has had way too much Redbull, Tim's foot is swollen, and Bowie did animal facts! Old school Poking the Bear with minimal cuts where there probably should so enjoy that. We also discuss the premium version where we have no cuts and you sgn a non disclosure, so enjoy that!


Also the dog would not start farting... at all. Ever. SMH.

Sep 28, 2017

Tim is just getting settled in his new bear cave. He talks about his move. Its Bowie's birthday and Ryan's ADD gets the better of him. Enjoy!



Sep 21, 2017

I guess the best way to explain this episode is that Big Tim found out Pepsi was at one point the 6th largest navy in the world, and has decided he wants to command a soda navy and hilarity ensues.


Also we are going to CAKE FEST! So stay tuned for that as Big Tim scams a cake convention.
