Rank #10: CBD

Look, we're not drugs people but this week we're talking about something drugs-adjacent, so be cool. CBD, which is derived from dirty filthy drugs, is legal in the US and has somehow become the hottest new trend. Since we're essentially investigative journalists, we had to try it for ourselves and report back. Also, Tom talks way too much about how scared he is by Tim's fast driving.

This week we talk about the polarizing pop star Taylor Swift in a manner befitting two men in their 30s who have a tenuous grasp on what young people enjoy. We trace her career from her roots in country music to her current role as Global Welcome Ambassador for New York City, a place she has lived for 6 months. Oh well. Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.

Rank #18: Wrestling

Podcast cover
Read more
This week's episode begins with the disappointment that Tim and Tom were unable to attend this year's Wrestlemania and the full intention of doing the episode about a different subject entirely before the power of Wrestlemania flat-out demands that they instead indeed talk almost exclusively about wrestling. Of course this means talking about the recent Hulk Hogan Uncensored at the Beacon Theatre that neither attended, a nearly screenplay accurate recounting of the Wrestling Buddies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XllxxslzkGU) commercial and Tim's close encounter with a Murphy bed.
Also discussed in depth this week: Tom's legacy as a two-term class president in high school and his attempts at recreating a wrestling fundraiser he and Tim both attended as young children where Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka screamed at him.
