TBTL- Too Beautiful to Live

Reviews For TBTL- Too Beautiful to Live

two guys, stupid stories, funny, current, culturally relevent.
Smart 5 day a week show that is a distraction from your real life. Luke and Andrew, the hosts, are generous, insecure guys. The dedicated fan base, affectionately known as the tens of listeners, are coproduces and have a vibrant FB page. TBTL is full of drops, inside jokes and last weeks pop-culture. Monday shows in the fall features sport talk at the end.
My morning go to for 5 years.
Seriously, this podcast has become my personal coffee with friends at a diner. It’s what I listen to when I’m homesick (despite their living across the country from me) and it’s the kind of chatter that punctuates my real life experience. Listen. Become addicted to your online friendos.
I just realized I have listened to 300 of these. Just freaking fabulous. You wont be disappointed!! Update: still listening and loving after all these years.
TBTL is like being at the table with your really funny friends. High-quality banter and some personal vulnerability but nothing too heavy and you can forget about the woes of the world for a bit. I've listened since 2011 and now my parents & friends do too.
This podcast will get under your skin. I love that it is a daily show and that the hosts, Luke and Andrew, have such a natural, smart, non-radio style. Both come from the public radio world but it's not an overly serious, stuffy NPR kinda show. Far from it!
I find myself referring to these guys as my friends... and I guess they are! They just don’t know it. I’ve been listening for years and hope to for years to come!!!
Even though we’ve never met Lurnk and his cobro the wickedly talented hodor of podcasting are my closest friends. We’ve bern through a lot together and well...now we’re here.
I moved from Seattle to New Zealand and then found this podcast. It brings so much laughter and joy to my day. It is relevant without having to go into much of the craziness of the world around us. I get doses of PNW, wit and wisdom from the amazing hosts, and funny Seinfeld-esque stories to listen in on. I also had no idea Luke was the host and he is such a treasure! I just love this podcast.
I listen to eight to ten podcasts. But if there is a new TBTL waiting for me, it immediately goes to the top of the list. It’s so funny and it doesn’t take long to get hooked and to get “in on” the jokes, references and hilarious audio drops.
It is super funny and touches on all the weird things that are on the news. I am a proud ten, and would give it 10 thumbs up, but I only have two thumbs
Luke and Andrew keep it real and real interesting. Must listen for me, later cal to my area but anyone would relate to their trials and tribulations. Keep up the great podcast... peace and love peace and love

My favorite
Great podcast! Luke & Andy are fun co-bros. I listen as I end my day after 2 jobs. Perfect for winding down. Thanks guys!
When Luke’s voice trembles. All the good feels.
I have been listening since the beginning of time. I love these guys and it’s like they are family and we walk around all day having a conversation. Highly recommend! Tiger
You will have well over 2000 episodes to listen to so that you can understand every inside joke & learn to randomly blurt out audio drops during family dinners or at bus stops. That’s right TBTL will enrich your life with just a back scratch of joy that’s so desperately needed today. Can’t explain it, but trust me. You’ll have a happier disposition and healthier buh-ah-dee if you take a listen.
I first reviewed TBTL in December of 2010. It's now September of 2018, and while a lot has changed in my life, TBTL hasn't! Luke and Andrew are always there, my best imaginary friends, with a mix of "news", current events, pop culture and everyday life to keep me entertained. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll RAWR at the awesomeness that is TBTL!
Like hanging with funny dudes in a bar or at a casual party. Funny and self-deprecating.
I’ve been a proud 10 for almost 10 years.
I love these guys truly...they have made my Day to day life a better place to be.in world full Of total chaos and uncertainty I have these two knuckle heads to steer me into there ridiculous abyss of daily stupid and amusing back and forth dribble. Thank you both Power out!
Seriously though. Subscribing and listening to TBTL is essentially the same thing as meeting a pair of new best friends. This show is about life itself.
Long time ten from back in the day! Love Luke and Andrew!! Great conversation :)
The best way to waste the maximum amount of time while being marginally informed of current events.
very funny
I love all the great news podcasts out there, but sometimes you want a podcast that asks nothing of you except a willingness to smile and laugh. TBTL is one of the beat daily listens that exists. You know it’s good when you refresh your podcast app every five minutes on your daily drive home to see if it’s posted yet!
Not to beat a dead dolphin...as I'm sure there are a million positive posts for this show, but I have to say I love it. I have haven't tired of it in the 4 months I've been listening! ( I know a long time, right?) I think it will be my pick for imaginary radio for quite some time! I look forward to new episodes arriving on my notification screen! I drive some for work and it's perfect for combating the increasing traffic in Asheville, NC. I'm happy to be one of the tens of listeners!! Power out!!! Jess A Ginger from Asheville!
It's my daily dose of sillyness that I've become hooked on for years now. They tell honest and funny stories about their lives, offer great music suggestions, and always find a way to fit in funny clips that will make you laugh out loud.
If a radio show could be a song, this show wouldn’t be this song—but this song may be a passing remembrance, before moving on to personal confessions, current events, while skirting the line of fair use and copyright infringement. It’s 5 days-a-week of compelling banter.
Life is a highway, Friendos. It’s a beautiful story. I love your story. Rawr.
Luke and Andrew feel like old friends that make me laugh and forget the stresses of the day. Listen to the Luke’s boat story if it’s your first time listening.
I love these two fellas!
After about a week of listening Andrew and Luke will start to feel like old friends!
A great show to listen to when your doing something else. Luke and Andrew are not always the most informed but they are entertaining and they keep me current on most pop culture.
Apparently I reviewed this podcast way back in 2009 (completely forgot btw). I will attach my old review just for nostalgia's sake but it's worth updating because 2009 is a long time ago and I will admit to being a bit gobsmacked that it is still going strong after all these years. It's a sign of a great podcast that it can survive it's cancellation as a radio show, several cast changes, location changes and who knows what else, and still be as entertaining as ever. It's a great show to relax to after a long day, have a laugh and think about some topics (pop culture and otherwise) in a new light. Still five stars worth of podcast. My old review from 2009: TBTL has successfully made the transition from the radio show to a podcast. It is still as amusing and worthwhile as ever. Luke has been getting great guests (Adam Corolla, Ira Glass) and hasn't lost a step from the days when it was too beautiful to live for the airwaves. It is best when Jen and Sean are on; one downside of the cancellation of the radio show is that they are not always on the podcast, especially Sean. It remains 90 (-ish) minutes of 'radio' magic.

I listen to a lot of really smart, thought-provoking podcasts - Revisionist History, Akimbo, Freakonomics, etc. And, TBTL is not one of them. What it is, however, is just as important. It's a light-hearted look at the world that offers a much-needed break from the hard news and never fails to make me laugh (often out loud!). The rapport between Luke and his co-bro Andrew is real and earnest. Their ongoing conversation about life - theirs and ours - is earnest and compelling. They've enlightened me on topics like hot dog cannons, monster trucks, and laser balding helmets. And, they've moved me to tears with stories about their deepest insecurities and fears. The fellas have become a daily ritual for me when I'm walking the dog, driving to work, or otherwise looking for a distraction. And, I encourage you to give them a listen... or two!
These guys crack me up! Love that there's so much content available. The jokes/drops don't make sense at first, but before you know it you're quoting them IRL. Let the fun begin!
…with these guys in it. Luke and Andrew are my best friends. They don’t know it. But they might be starting to suspect it.
Take these guys with you daily. Luke & Andrew are two witty, smart, insightful podcasters ...with just a little bit of sophomoric humor to keep us all down to earth. Their sweet silliness & interesting discussions have kept me company & kept my spirits up during my day job while driving to see my home patients in hospice. So if you’re having a tough day, inoculate against the grittiness of life with an injection of TBTL Podcast. (I can’t believe you told that joke!)
Simply put, this is so much more than a podcast. It’s a community of imaginary radio friends who provide laughs, encouragement, life hacks, spoofs, and a cure for global loneliness 5 days a week! Check out Luke and Andrew’s show - if you find an episode unlistenable, you’re doing it right, just keep going and don’t miss out on the magic that is TBTL
Carry your coolest and quirkiest friends in your pocket everywhere you go. Listen to TBTL!
Ever hang out with someone you've known for years and a lot of the same movies, and love the same music and really feel comfortable talking about whatever comes up but still learn about new music they love or old movies they've seen and you never heard of? Yeah, it's kind of like that. Inside jokes that long time friends get and that crazy thing you saw on the interwebs and a new song you're geeked out on and can't wait to share with your friends while having a drink and just talking about nothin'....and everything. It's kind of like that. (Inside joke, I miss, "What's the worst movie you could watch this weekend.")
I have been listening for years in various formats and the show just keeps getting better and better. Andrew and Luke’s daily conversations are like sitting down with old friends. They are warm and inviting.
Daily shows are hard to come by, but when you need to fill hours of your day with some kind of content, they are much needed! Fortunately, TBTL is not only a daily show that will fill an hour+ of your commute/workday/chore time, but it will also entertain you! Luke and Andrew are two very likable guys who chat about current events, specializing in the weirder stories from the headlines. It’s great stuff!
I’ve been leistening for about two years now. I look forward to the ~hour of content each weekday. Great for a commute or while doing chores. The hosts truly make you feel like a friend.
What would I do without Luke and Andrew to make me laugh every day?! I appreciate their honesty with themselves and with us, the Tens of Listeners, and honestly, this is how I get a lot of my pop culture knowledge. So glad I found them years ago - they’ve brought so much to my life!
TBTL is the show that lets you take your hair down and check out for a bit. Current events (non political) funny stories and shared insecurities allow you to connect with these two middle aged white guys in a way you will love.
Like checking in whit a couple buddies. Luke and Andrew chat about current events, "hot dog stories", and just random things that happen to them. One of the most real podcasts out there, and they post every day!
