Podcasting icons Julie Klausner (Difficult People) and Tom Scharpling (The Best Show) team up for a fun show where they have fun and you have fun and everybody has fun. Each week, Tom and Julie careen through the best and worst of pop culture, giving the business to blockhead celebrities, rescuing shoddy podcasts, exploring obscure American subcultures, watching clips from the classics (The Munsters, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, etc), and hanging out with amazing guests, all in the name of keeping each other sane and making each other laugh. Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network.
Tom and Julie welcome character actor John Ross Bowie, host of the new podcast Household Faces, for a journey through the world of character actors! They recast A-list roles in Pretty Woman, Die Hard, and James Bond with character actors. They talk the greats – John Carroll Lynch, Margo Martindale, Delroy Lindo, Jennifer Coolidge, and many more.
