I got such a kick out of Travis saying "I've watched a lot of Planet Earth" before then going on to describe The Descent.

Also the extended riffing on Big Johnson shirts.

I cannot believe that Big Johnson shirts are still being made. It sounds like they're new, too, not just some warehouse that's been dribbling out the same shirt for decades.

More podcasts need dog interruptions, even if they did disrupt the good football joke.

I love the phrasing of: "we have begged to be free from this football league that we cannot keep up with."

The dog interruptions were so cute!

Speaking of dogs, definitely flashed back to those Big Dog shirts. But to my great luck, privilege, and/or obliviousness, I don't think I've ever seen a Big Johnson shirt in person. (Just googled to make sure.) I see from the company's wikipedia page that they started in Maryland, though - are they more of an East Coast thing?

(P.S. I found this FPP about Big Dogs shirts in my quest to learn more about Big Johnson shirts. If people wonder why I'm favoriting their comments from 2009 in 2019, this podcast episode is why!)

The T-shirts sounded kind of funny to me in their own right. I may have brain poisoning.

Going to school in Virginia meant seeing a LOT of Big Johnson tshirts. They were usually bought on beach vacations, and I think there were also lots of "try my nuts" shirts bought from the same place.

I'd never heard of Big Johnson shirts, either. An image search reveals they're even worse than I thought they'd be.
