Tom and Gary return from their two month hiatus with trenchant, witty observations on the many inane advertisements populating the airwaves at this time. Also: I Wonder Why, a condor, and a particularly thoughtful and observational viewer mail.
In this, the 17th and most free-wheeling episode of the pod, Gary re-asserts his creative leadership, while Tom points out that Gary still uses a feces-fouled phone. Plus, the history of thermo-nuclear fusion, the truth about how women dress, and annoyingly truncated words.
In an episode filled to the brim with fascination, Tom, Gary and special guest and foremost global expert Sara Wolfson explore the influence of "So There" on China, Great Britain, France, Thailand, the Netherlands, Australia, Ireland, Mexico and Italy -- just a few of the countries where we have listeners. Plus, why we might or might not eat a cat, a piece of very special celebrity viewer mail, and a three-way version of "I Decree".
In typically disjointed fashion, Gary and Tom somehow link the non-existent sax solo in "My Sharona", belligerent Arby's cashiers, and asexual neck massages. Plus: uncontrollable, involuntary laughter!
Today, Gary and Tom delve into the insane price discrepancy between women's and men's haircuts, jowly automobile-dealer spokesmen, and bizarre names for pharmaceutical drugs. Plus viewer mail, a potential transgender-person social experiment, and a theremin!
In perhaps the most inane episode of the pod, Tom and Gary talk about the numerous competitions they’ve had over the years. Plus Tom’s fear and loathing of his neighbors, songs about directors, and viewer mail.
In the latest and perhaps shaggiest episode of the pod, Tom and Gary ruminate on their fear of artificial intelligence, intolerable exit-row behavior, and squirm-inducing elevator gambits. Plus listener mail!
What begins as a heartwarming Christmas edition of the pod goes off the rails into risqué territory, as Tom and Gary discuss reindeer sex, Sybaris and share provocative viewer mail. Plus: odd smells we like, the abject humiliation of Lexus “December to Remember” commercials, and signs you’re overdoing your Christmas lights.
As the end of the year approaches, Gary and Tom are inspired to pose the big questions: why are all the words people use to sound smart three syllables? When did sponsorships on sports broadcasts become so gratuitous? Are emery boards manly? And what should one never say when one says they’re sick? Also: more things we would decree if we were king.
In the latest episode of the pod, Gary and Tom babble aimlessly about showoff-y bilingual local newscasters, how Halloween became National Streetwalker Day, and why the yawn is the most benign expectoration of them all.
Episode 4 is a very special (and very meaty) edition of So There!, as Tom and Gary welcome guest musicologist Chris Plansker to the pod. Listen as Chris struggles not to drown in the sonic majesty of our musical genius.
