THE ELEVATOR PITCH
WHY SHOULD I WATCH STORY TIME WITH TOM & MIKE?
That’s a good question. You’re being pulled in all directions by media. Watch this, listen to that, read this, play that. It’s hard to choose what media to consume, because there is so much variety. Podcasts are ultimately about comfortability. Tom & Mike are old friends, and listening to the podcast is like being in the room with them.
You’re a friend here, and you are being welcomed with open arms. It’s like Olive Garden; when you’re here, you’re family.
Now shut up and watch the fucking podcast!
HOW DID STORY TIME WITH TOM & MIKE GET STARTED?
In March of 2020, mere days after the COVID-19 pandemic began and lockdowns were put in place, Tom and Mike decided that in order to maintain their sanity and stay in touch, they would try something they’d never tried before: a remote podcast. Other attempts to create podcasts never took off, but this time, something clicked, and they were recording every other night, two episodes at a time, and posting one every day of the week.
They continued at this breakneck speed for about six weeks, at which point it became abundantly clear it was unsustainable, and switched to a weekly format.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US
“Tom and Mike are toxicants of the American public. Which don’t belong to the north and south side of town. But also the first episode of every series based off the cookie sheet.
Hallelujah and amen!”
“Story Time with Tom & Mike can be best described as a good time listening to friends, knowing full well it’s bound to take weird turns leaving you shaking your head and wondering……WHY?! yet making you beg for more!!!
Funny, thought provoking conversations – with a sprinkle of buillshit to get you through the day.”
“When I listen to Tom and Mike, I get aroused.”
“I REALLY LIKE THESE GUYS. WHEN THEY HAVE GUESTS, THEY TEND TO PICK PEOPLE THAT HAVE BIG TEETH, AND THAT’S A SIGN OF VIRILITY. BUGS BUNNY AIN’T GOT SHIT ON THESE GUYS!”
“Story Time with Tom and Mike is the only podcast I’ve listened to, because I’ve been in it. I don’t regret either choice, it’s a great show and if you’re a podcast guy, you’ll love it because it’s just about two friends, who happen to be great entertainers, just telling good stories – a formula you can’t go wrong with. It’s simple, it’s funny, it gets you through the day. Tom and Mike are very honest and open, too, and they can be pretty weird – they asked me not to say they were huge assholes who strangle ducks for fun. That seems oddly specific. So tune into Story Time with Tom and Mike!”
