TBTL’s Great Australian Adventure!
If you’re new to TBTL, this is another great place to jump in! Luke and Andrew recently travelled through the Australian outback, starting in the shadow of Larry the Lobster and ending up at The Pink Panther Pub in Larrimah, a tiny town of just twelve people on the outskirts of civilization.
Luke and Andrew kick off their Australian Adventure in the shadow of Larry the Lobster, and they end up discussing selfie-sticks, Luke’s new favorite Australian TV Host, non-alcoholic pub ordering strategies, and early morning pizza cravings.
Luke and Andrew make it to Port Augusta, SA, and find a local newspaper column about cemeteries oddly fascinating. Plus, Luke learns that gas station Veggie Pastys are not great, but spaghetti-flavored potato chips are delicious.
Luke and Andrew check-in from Coober Pedy, Australia, "The Opal Capital of the World," where they record the show next to a dang spaceship! They discuss the all the news that's fit to print in the Coober Pedy Regional Times, and why Luke should stop trying to prank other hotel guests.
Luke and Andrew make it to Alice Springs and hit an emotional and mental wall. They bust through it though, and come out the other side as better friends. Also, they get free jars of water from a funky coffee shop, which is fun.
Luke and Andrew are dazed, dazzled, and durpy as they roll into Tennant Creek, Australia, where they meet the Outback's #1 Madonna fan and Andrew is gifted some free meats. They also discover a piece of turtle-related clipart that may have changed them forever.
After months and months of dreaming and days and days of driving, Luke and Andrew finally make it through the Outback and find themselves at the Pink Panther Pub and Hotel in Larrimah, Australia. They're here to find out if the town's 12 residents are interested in watching two guys do a podcast.
