The TBD Gang gets back to its roots and discusses some garbage reality TV including America’s Next Top Model and Bachelor in Paradise. Bryan has a very Larry David moment, and news of a catastrophic divorce is broken to the group.
The Podgang convenes to discuss the State Fair versus Renaissance Festival (exploding pumpkins!), Would You Rather, and a whole lot of craziness prior to the News That’s Fit to Rant About including the latest in Baltimore’s speed camera saga.
89.7 WTMD Music Coordinator and former Sun editor Sam Sessa joins the show to talk about all of WTMD’s upcoming activities, waterslides in Baltimore, the madness / greatness that is the Ice Bucket challenge and the News That’s Fit to Rant About.
Not surprisingly, we here at the TBD Show have about as much to say – unoriginal or otherwise – about the now late, and always great, Robin Williams. But before we shed a tear in his honor, Bryan makes enemies at Liz’s birthday party.
The Podgang discuss an incredibly busy weekend for the city of Baltimore, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a few other 80’s phenomena, then the News That’s Fit to Rant About including a major shakeup in Baltimore politics alongside Ray Lewis as therapist. (?)
The TBD Show is joined by newly minted standup comic Nicki Fuchs (August 16th at Nu Bohemia Cafe, be there!) as they talk stand up comedy, Levy’s attempt to fake Wayne Brady’s death, and some rather graphic Tindr Talk. Good stuff!
Do you have No Idea what’s going on? Well let me catch you up some. No Idea’s owner Jason Zink has sold No Idea to one of the same people he sold Don’t Know to back in 2011 in one Ryan Cooper. This frees Zink to focus on his Canton endeavor, Smaltimore. Now, the sale flew under the radar for most people and came as quite a surprise. That didn’t stop them from throwing a F-U-N-eral at No Idea…
The Podgang welcomes themselves to the RELM Network with a lengthy discussion of the new Horseshoe Casino, stripclub steak restaurants, The Best of Craigslist, and an update on the latest speed camera shenanigans in Howard County. Plus more!
Langermann’s on LightStreet closed its doors this past Friday. This comes as no surprise to most people. If you were a frequenter of the restaurant, it was not a challenge to stroll in at 7PM on a Friday night and find yourself with prime pickings for any table in the restaurant. I’m actually a little disappointed to hear the news, because the scallops, among other menu…
Faced with a seemingly unending set of ‘lists’ vomited from the Internet informing the world what ‘real’ Baltimoreans are like, we’ve decided to put together a list our own. Here the full conversation on the latest TBD Show at or around the 17:00 mark. @BryanLevy contributed 99% of the material here. Direct all complaints his way.
#1: 3/4 of the people that say they are from ‘Baltimore’ are from…
In the face of the most recent “List” of things about Baltimore someone on the Internet claims to be definitive, @BryanLevy comes up with his own List Of Things That Real Baltimoreans Hate About That List Of Things That Real Baltimoreans Love! Also, the TBD gang eats some disgusting Dorito products from 7-11.
South Baltimore parking is about to get even more sparse than it was before. After more than five years of being teased that luxury apartments are coming to Heath Street (http://citythatbreeds.com/2009/04/111-w-heath-st/EtM edit: good god it’s been THAT long?), traction is finally being made on this plan. The Heath Lofts will boast almost 60 luxury pads at a hefty price tag, two bedrooms are…
A very special episode with it being DennisTheCynic’s last (for now) appearance, with special guest Lowell Melser to discuss a viral sensation featuring his son being featured in a photo op with President Barack Obama.
Not that we needed more Sunday Funday options in the Hill area, but ask and ye shall receive! Pub Dog has long been providing us in the neighborhood with delectable eats, this is no surprise. The selection of delicious, personal (if you try hard enough) pizzas has been a craving to many Federal Hillians for years. As one of the few restaurants in the area that promises to stay open each night…
After discussing their respective Fourth of Julys, the Podgang (sans an ailing DennisTheCynic) go hog wild discussing annoying neighborhood groups, Baltimore as Rat City, Yoga Taxes and of course, Pad Thai.
Special guest and (former) 99.1 WHFS Music Director Spammy Hormel hangs out to talk about the rise, hubris and slow bowl circling of radio and the heydays of the HFStival. Other topics include the Best of Change MD, Quacktivists, the Maryland Primary Election (argh) and NU METAL!!
Crossbar der Biergarten, or Crossbar for short, is the latest “super-bar” planned for Federal Hill. Brian McComas, Ryleigh’s owner, continues to push for this newest concept. The plan is to merge 12 & 14 East Cross Street and knock down the walls of 14 & 16 East Cross Street to create an open-air beer garden, thus uniting four currently vacant units.
After discussing all the important developments of our days including the necessity of The Expendables 3, The Podgang then proceeds to ditch talking about anything news related and goes straight into reminiscing about Pro Wrestling. In other words, it’s the greatest episode of the CTB Podcast to date.
The City That Chats returns Dennis to Southeast Baltimore where he speaks with Liam Davis, a local activist who currently works for Baltimore City Government. Liam gets extra props for trudging to the Hills of Hamilton to have this chat!
If you’ve been keeping your finger on the pulse of Federal Hill life, you may have heard that Petco’s smaller brand label, Unleashed, is moving in to the spot that Quizno’s used to occupy. The concept is a good one, in theory: bring in the knowledge and know-how of the larger brand and put it in a smaller package. But personally, I won’t be shopping there because much like how video killed the…
Things get crazy with a full moon, flash floods, bulls on parade and more as the Podgang discusses such things on top of the state of MD’s upcoming election cycle (spoiler alert: EvanTheMayor gets angry about it).
White people are a curious bunch. They offer car financing, eat tuna fish sandwiches, drink Miller Lite, send their kids to summer camp, sit on the Bench in the NBA, purchase product protection plans on electronics, and whenever they gather in large numbers, they play Beer Pong and Cornhole.
White people are just plain crazy, as evident in the crazy things they do such as recycle, make…
The CTB Podcast is joined by City Paper’s Baynard Woods to discuss his book, an upcoming interview with John Waters, songs about Hampden, missed connections, and a bunch of other stuff! BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! A very special bonus TBD follows the conclusion in which Levy describes his trip to Dallas, movies that hold up are discussed, and we spotlight two cats up for adoptionat the Baltimore…
The Podgang welcomes Matt McDermott to the show to discuss the upcoming Burger Wars, Lyon Distilling Company, cricket chips, dolphin releases, water wheels, speed cameras, Casey The Kasem’s impending nuptials and much much more!
Very special guest Lowell Melser returns! The gang discusses wall collapses, the RELM network‘s latest developments, a VERY special Best of Change MD featuring the O’DENNIS OFF, and so very very much more!
It’s a very special selection of bonus clips this week as the Podgang is off doin’ thangs and cannot accommodate a new episode with new guests! Rest assured it’s well worth your ear time. Pop culture, video games and commercials are all included amongst a lot of fart noises. Enjoy.
Evan, Dennis and Casey crack some beers and discuss Adult Spring Break, the Best of O’Malley Obsequiousness, This Week in Debunking Scientific BS, Shake Shack coming to the Inner Harbor and Hillary makes an appearance which prompts her to get flushed down the toilet. Namaste!
The show is joined by @lizrawr‘s sister Sarah to discuss her experience being an applicant for The Bachelor. Some lightning round trivia showcasing dessert and DVDs is featured and everyone discusses their feeling about the new Seacrets Beer.
Daily Record reporter Bryan Sears returns to the show to talk alllllllllll about the 2014 Maryland Legislative cycle, more Taco in a Bag talk, annoying commercials, and special guest Nate Dogg drops in to talk with the gang for a spell.
On Sunday The Sun printed another editorial written by a conservative republican decrying the potential decriminalization of marijuana in Maryland, this latest one by United States Congressman and physician Andy Harris. Dr. Harris makes the point that in states where marijuana is decriminalized use among minors increases. He also notes that most Maryland counties do not…
I’m taking a quick detour from my regular Bloggie Route to deliver a follow-up edition of more ‘Texts from Reeses’, which only took up a portion of my last Bloggie (I‘ll post the link at the bottom for the uncool peeps who haven’t read them).
This special blog package arrived due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback I got for Reeses, which really was just my drunk buddy slurring “Yo dawg……
Evan, Dennis and Casey discuss Opening Day, debut a new segment called Dick Move of the Week and discuss all the recent rumblings in local news including a Hennesy theft, population loss in Baltimore, the gubernatorial race and much much more.
The TBD Gang discusses the social value of Nick Cannon, Bryan and Greg go on an epic trip to Atlantic City, and Bryan’s girlfriend makes an appearance to talk about her love of the wildly popular book for children Divergent.
