We're BACK! Exciting Things Happening at BTPPOD!!

Thank you for checking out the blog... seriously!!! If you are here that means you clicked on a link someone told you to click on, and THAT is the exact currency that matters on the internet... CLICKS!!

But we like to deal in more than clicks. We like to deal in more TANGIBLE things like heart, brains, courage, Toto, Dorothy, and all those adorable Munchkins! But I digress..

We had a great conversation with our friend Joe Loconsole this week, and his knowledge for cinema and television, especially his love for a specific actor fed perfectly into a tribute to the One and Only Burt Reynolds. We have LOTS of fun conversations and some special guests coming up in the future, so be sure to keep following up with us for an (almost) weekly dose of the most fun you can have with your ears...

Listen HERE! or look us up on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get podcasts!

Looking forward to welcoming some Comedians, Musicians and CRUISERS as well in upcoming episodes. Email us HERE to find out how to become our guest or contribute to the show in any way you see fit. You can also support us financially by making a monthly contribution of AS LITTLE AS $1 with Patreon

Episode 63: Young People are Brittle, Too!

A discussion about looking forward to the upcoming year devolves quickly into complaining about Elvis' movie career! But he shares a birthday with David Bowie, so we'll give him a pass... haha!

We also discuss a benefit near and dear to us: BREAKING THE SILENCE. It's a charity organisation aimed at proper treatment and education for those suffering from Autism and their families. You can donate at or join us for the event, coming up on Sunday, April 29th, 2018. All the details can be found at

BREAKING THE SILENCE 10: A Benefit for Autism Awareness
BAND SUBMISSIONS OPEN UNTIL FEB 10, 2018  Volunteer Signup and other info coming soon...

Finally, we pay tribute to the 2 years since David Bowie, as well as the recent passings of comedic actor Jerry Van Dyke, known for his work on TV shows like Coach and The Middle, and flautist Ray Thomas, founding member of the rock band Moody Blues.

Episode 58: Hashtag Random Hugs

Our Tribute to Tom Petty and The Victims of the 10/1/17 Tragedy in Las Vegas.

We discover that Tony and Tom share a birthday, so we discuss some lesser-know Petty tunes and discuss a few other folks that share the October 20th birthday. Hit up Tony on or near October 20th to wish him a happy birthday on Twitter  @AnthonyRoss57
