This week on The Gist Mike Pesca is featuring his favorite podcasts, and yesterday TBTL was in the spotlight. Mike played some of the Cereal episode and talked about how much he enjoys the personal, confessional nature of TBTL. Then he coaxed two major secrets from our hero. It turns out Luke has multiple wooden boats and Susan Stamberg is Adelaide's mother.

The Alamo Drafthouse is a badass Austin-based chain of theaters, not the mom & pop hanging a sheet in a parking lot and making shadow puppets business the boys made it out to be. Until you've gone to one of these theaters and dumped gourmet food all over your lap while Cullen watches to make sure you don't fall asleep during The Dark Knight you can't judge the Alamo Drafthouse. They are the geniuses who brought you this.

Non-sportballers and those easily bored stop reading now. Just in case TBTL Extra Pointless doesn't get around to a fantasy football update tonight, ol' Clip Clop mopped the virtual floor with Luke's Tragic! last weekend 233-159. What's up next for my Cuyahoga Clambake? Appropriately, it's Andrew himself. Instead of a catrolling, Hodor Kotb and his Factory of Sadness will be getting a steamrolling this Sunday.

North Korea wants to be a bully. But they can't actually push anyone around because their muscles/missiles don't work right. They are actually worse than a bully because they are weird, and we don't know what weirdos are going to do. We and the other sane countries have to tiptoe around because no one wants to engage them. One power they still possess, however, due to the leveling effect of the internet, is the power to "pants." North Korea pantsed Sony and while we were laughing they pantsed us.

Our boy Bean the broken hipster was back on the show the other day, along with Genevieve and a homeless guy. It's starting to get "clown car" crowded in Scion Studios. It seems like Andrew is making room for everyone, so can he make room for radio legend Warren Olney? Maybe Warren can help Andrew finally get to the point.

And why does the Cuyahoga Clam dislike Sarah Koenig? Do they have a history? And when Walshski has a beef with you is it actually a pastrami? If he ever tells me he has pastrami with me I'll tell him how cheesed off I am at him. The we'll high five and go get sandwiches just like in the movies.

Listener Kelly's story of "Squatch the Snow Globe" is a new TBTL holiday classic. It shows how the Facebook page has evolved as a community of people who support each other. Please know that no matter what you need the sTens will come through for you. Unless what you need is someone to watch an online vacuum product demo. That will get you banned from the sTens for at least a week.

TBTL Drinking Game:

•Take one sip whenever Andrew says "colleague"
•Take two sips when Andrew apologizes for what he's about to say
•Take three sips every time Andrew apologizes for what he's saying
•Pound the whole beer when Andrew apologizes for what he said earlier

This game should be played at home. If you must go out make sure you have an Uber discount code so you don't end up paying $300 for a ride during peak "Cuyahoga Clam Apology" pricing hours.

Is anyone else excited to play football for Coach Genevieve? Nerf footballs, no punting… but the best part will be when she gets bored and leaves before halftime. Then we can do whatever we want. Maybe have an ugly holday sweater party? Whatever happens make sure no one invites Jo Ellen McCawley. That basic bee can go play football for her boyfriend Jim Harbaugh.

I'm so disappointed in this tweet. For years I followed Best Buy on Twitter, relying on the electronics superstore as a moral compass and beacon of propriety. And now this? I couldn't believe they would be so glib as to make a joke about something thousands of us have been having fun with for months. I'm canceling the extended warranty on our relationship. Best Buy's crass japery has driven me into the earnest, consoling arms of Fry's Electronics. I'm just glad Circuit City isn't alive to see this.

When I moved to Austin and was not yet working I volunteered at the Austin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Like Luke and Andrew I saw myself as an esteemed narrator, the next Dick Estell, if you will. While they didn't rebuff me completely I did have to produce and direct audiobook projects for many months before getting a chance to unleash my golden pipes. One day the "talent" didn't show and ol' Clip Clop got behind the mic. Not to brag, but somewhere out there a pissed off blind person is wondering who let a drowning kitten narrate their electronics textbook.

Andrew Walsh is a baby. Anyone who says he hates cheese but still eats pizza is a baby. Anyone who compares Brazil nuts to Macadamia nuts is a baby. And probably also a smoker who has completely burned out his taste receptors. Andrew Walsh eats pastrami sandwiches from Subway regularly. This is a manchild who must be stopped.

Luke had his own problems on yesterday's show. You can actually hear his blood boiling when people start getting excited about the royal family. It bothers me, too. I can understand people in England still getting worked up because it's part of their heritage. But Americans who spend hours waiting for a glimpse of some dude who fell out of Diana's butt and dude's wife? What is that? It's worse than spending the day watching people play video games.

Listener David, aside from being a fan of Johnny Manziel, seems like a fine fellow and staunch Ten. I think we all get a little carried away on Twitter from time to time. Like when I spent two days tweeting as a styrofoam tub of ranch dressing. I was a hero to people in Texas but no one else really vibed with it.
