Ann, Hillary and Meredith are meeting in the LRB conference space, and we DEFINITELY have an agenda, although we’ll need to keep it short so we’re not late for yoga. It was a strange, somewhat gross week of TBTL, full of things in nostrils that shouldn’t be, rambling discussions about “funny” Christian singers, and seriously shady Lyft drivers. We’re head over heels for guest cohost Jeannie Yandel, her awesome podcast, and her attitude toward meetings, agree that Luke should stop trying to ‘cute pic’ Carey into vegetarianism, and take the guys to task for expecting their coworkers to roll with their ineptitude. Hillary reluctantly says that ugly sweater parties are fine™. Meredith needs to replace that bottle of Glenlivet. Ann shares how she took parking lot pedestrian behavior to new levels of passive-aggressiveness. Now if you’ll excuse us, we need to go look up the details of Zach Braff’s life.
It’s December 2018, and another year draws to a close at the Little Red Bandwagon. We’ve had a lot of fun talking about TBTL, as well as pop culture, sports, candy, pets (new and old), tasty beverages, the state of the world and our own lives. So for this month’s clip show, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of our favorite moments on our own show. Okay, they’re some of Ann’s favorite moments, since this was her idea and she was the one who trawled through the entire year to scoop them up. Listen as we discuss, argue and laugh our way through 2018. We hope you had as much fun listening as we had recording.
Mike, Bobby and Ann have punched the clock for our latest TBTL Week in Review, and they’re just hoping to make it through this bohemoth with as few sprinkles in unsavory places as possible. Mike has a surprisingly sound theory about Moby and Beck, Bobby has just discovered a little show on Netflix called Breaking Bad, and when it comes to TBTL showering love on our friends over at the Preheated podcast, Ann is feeling a lot like Luke’s crackers—a little salty.
This week, we’re coming in hot with takes that burn like salicylic acid. Meredith is calling out Michael Pollan. Bobby is correcting the record on the Golden Griffins. Hillary is slamming on The Doors. Mike is mad at avocados. And we’re all calling BS on both hippie mayo, and Andrew’s claim that he’s never had ranch dressing. (Unless, of course, he was raised strictly Catalina.)
Listen back with us to December 2015, when Bobby and Christy interviewed Christmas-loving Jew and Brooklyn Ten Stephanie Lee, and listened back to TBTL’s legendary Top 5 Modern Day Christmas Songs Mashup from 2011. We’ve got a quick update from Stephanie, who in the last three years was finally forced to give up her Blackberry and get an iPhone.
