Our scheduled guest realized he was too important to be on our podcast, so instead Tom and Don talk radio of the old variety.
This episode brought to you by Zubaz. Zubaz – it’s the Z. I don’t actually know what Zubaz are.

Today’s show included an unscheduled call to Louie and all the news that’s fit to say into a microphone.
So-called because of the three guest roster: Dustin Diamond (aka Screech from Saved By The Bell), Jimmy Pardo (AKA the guy we had on a few months ago), and Ed McDaniel (AKA Football Joe).
Dustin Neil Diamond is an actor, musician, director, and stand-up comedian best known for his role as Samuel “Screech” Powers in the television shows Saved by the Bell, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
Jimmy Pardo is a stand up comedian with a weekly podcast, “Never Not Funny”. It’s the No. 2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian, after Ricky Gervais’s. In 2010, GQ magazine called the show “The Number 1 Relatively Obscure Thing You Need to Be Paying Attention To.” Besides the podcast, Jimmy continues to headline at some of America’s top comedy clubs and currently works as Conan O’Brien’s opening act on “Conan”.
Ed McDaniel is a former football linebacker in the NFL. He was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings, 5th round (125th overall) of the 1992 Draft. He spent his entire career with the Minnesota Vikings.

It’s the first ever video podcast, although the video itself was just a test. From now on it’ll be all video all the time, so look forward to it. You can see it at http://new.livestream.com/tombarnardpodcast at the regular time.
Jennifer and Alicia have been in the restaurant and culinary arts for many years and separately dreamed of one day having their very own place. Alicia attended Le Cordon Bleu’s Patisserie and Baking program and worked for many celebrated local companies, and even appeared on The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. Jennifer worked on the floor and behind the scenes of many well-known Twin Cities restaurants and when Alicia decided it was time to open her own bakery a family member referred her to Jennifer. It was during that meeting they shared their vision of food and family and knew it would connect them forever. It was then The Buttered Tin was born. Since Jen and Alicia themselves are linked by family it only makes sense that they wanted to create a place where family and friends can gather. They believe surrounding yourself with the people you love while enjoying a homemade meal is what life is all about. They believe food brings us together, bonds us, and is how memories are made. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you do, how much you make — we all celebrate, commiserate, and bond over a shared meal or culinary experience.

This week’s idea: asshole profiling. It’s not what you think.

Tim Nutt is a comic who can’t be judged by his cover. Long-haired, bearded and “rough around the edges”, audiences expect Nutt’s material to match. But he surprises with razored-down punch lines and well conjured-up premises that place him as one of the top comics working today. His appearance at the 2006 Just For Laughs was so impressive he was named one of the “Best of the Fest” and reviewers asked “where have they been hiding this guy?” The answer was, in comedy clubs across Canada where Tim has established himself as a top-draw for the past 16 years.
