Toddland has become one of the hottest companies at San Diego Comic-Con with their exclusives for Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, and brand new for this year, American Dad. Their exclusives sell out incredibly fast and they're our favorite items to order. Most of my SDCC spending is usually at
Toddland.

We talked to Todd about this years exclusives, the joys of being a fan at SDCC, making rad stuff for fun people, a crazy fan almost punching Todd, our personal collections, how pre-order pickups may work, and so much more.


Todd, Tim, and Austin at the Toddland offices

A huge thanks to Todd for allowing us to come down to the Toddland offices in the middle of their SDCC mayhem to talk with him. Make sure you get your pre-orders in and don't forget, you MUST be at SDCC to pick up your items. Find Toddland at Booth 4429 during SDCC!

Episode 131 - A Hollywood Peacock Surprise

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode, Austin Grant and I catch up on the last week and discuss the week ahead.


The 4th of July is just two days away and Austin and I talk about our plans for the 4th. Austin is currently driving back from Salt Lake City (again) helping his girlfriend move to Los Angeles. We also talked about sexual assault & harassment and how it's affected our significant others, how Austin and Ashley met, some of their plans, and making the move, and so much more.


Tim and Austin at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

We recorded this episode at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. As we mentioned in the last episode, we are recording some episodes at certain Los Angeles landmarks that we love or haven't been to yet. Austin hadn't been to Hollywood Forever yet, so I gave him a quick tour of the place before we recorded. Hollywood Forever is a gorgeous cemetery that I would highly suggest everybody pays a visit too. They also do movie screenings here that are incredible. Check out the link below for tickets. 

We hope you have a safe 4th and make sure to take care of your pets as they get scared during fireworks. Make sure they're safe and comfortable. 

Enjoy the episode!

'Maynard' Documentary coming to iTunes and Digital

A few months back I had the honor of speaking with Sam Pollard, Director of the intriguing documentary, 'Maynard'.


The documntary follows the story of Maynard Jackson Jr. who became Atlanta's first black mayor in 1973. Maynard Jackson's story is one that everybody needs to see and hear. 

I wasn't familiar with Maynard until watching the documentary in preparation for speaking with Sam. The film is incredible. I was honestly sad that it took me this far into life to be able to learn Maynard's story. I would highly encourage everybody to take the time to watch this film and learn from such an incredible hero. Maynard Jackson was not just a political hero, but human hero as well. This is a film you will not want to miss. And now that it's going to be on digital platforms, you don't have an excuse to not watch it. 

'Maynard' arrives on iTunes and Digital platforms on Tuesday, July 3rd. 

Listen to Episode 110 with 'Maynard' Director Sam Pollard below.

Episode 130 - AT&T Shape at Warner Brothers

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode, Austin Grant and I sit down and recap our time at the AT&T Shape event at Warner Brothers. 



Austin was only able to attend part of the first day as he had to head back to Salt Lake City to star in a movie. We talked about what we were able to do at the event while Austin was there, as well as the parts Austin missed out on. We had great panels with some of the filmmakers behind Ready Player One, panels with Issa Rae & P. Diddy, and incredible tech displays highlighting new science and technology in film. We also covered part of a second event I attended back at CBS with Rod Rodenburry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Rodenburry, and Executive Producer of Star Trek: Discovery.

This episode also started a new podcasting experience for us. Since Meltdown closed at the end of March, we've been without regular spot to record the podcast. We bounce back and forth between my place and Austin's, but we thought it would be fun to record at interesting spots around Los Angeles. After hearing about the Los Feliz Murder House on an episode of My Favorite Murder, we decided to check it out since it was right up the street from my place. After checking out the creepy house, we decided to record the episode there.

We have a few other locations in mind that we will be recording at, but if you have a spot you want us to check out on a future episode, let us know! 

Thanks for having us AT&T and Warner Brothers!

Enjoy the episode.
