This week brother Jon is recording his dulcet tones while in St. Louis where he will see our mother, brother, and the St. Louis Cardinals. Jon shares his thoughts on wheedling dugout seats at a ballpark, the McDonalds cheeseburger controversy, and the incomprehensible nature of the tweet that  got Roseann Barr’s show cancelled. Brother Jerry ponders the crazy origin story of the Twitter service.

Check out the outrageous new t-shirt that commemorates the brothers’ April 21st live show at Chicago’s reknown Clark Street Ale House.

In this jam-packed episode, Jon makes his annual pilgrimage to Toledo, Ohio, while Jerry remains convinced his brother/cohost is really in Toledo, Spain. Hilarity (of a sort) ensues.

Due to an unatural enthusiasm when requesting an audience with the Toledo Mudhen’s mascot, Jon fears he has made his way onto the list of mascot stalkers. On a brighter note, Jon decided not to break into the abandoned River Tower skyscraper just to see if it was really abandoned.
