ReOccuring Segments


“We were jonesing for real pizza. Hey man, where’s the Sbarros at?” – Walt

“I swear to God everything we’re about to tell you about this fucking tour guide is gospel.” – Walt

“Frank pussied out.” – Walt

“I feel like if society ended I’d have a hard time bringing back a lot of technology but I bet I could make this whistle work.” – Q

“Come on Smodfan” – Bry “Curator!” – Walt

“We are going to die on this trip I know it.” – Walt

“We’re like crack addicts driving around Pheonix looking for Sbarros.” – Walt

“Everyone salutes the 4 Color Demon flag.” – Bry

“who knows what dangers we’ll face after this, possibly our final, dinner together on this planet” – Walt

Memorable Moments:

Frank #5 calls in to help recap the trip to the Grand Canyon. One of the first stops was to the Columbus Zoo and a Whistle Factory for an hour and a half tour where the guide insisted on using a mic the whole time despite there being only 5 people in their group.

Q reveals that he bribes zookeepers so he gets more personal interactions with the animals.

On the first night they all go to a Mongolian restaurant and Walt heroically goes along with it. The second day the guys go to an L.L. Bean and take a picture in front of a giant boot. They all decide to go to the Mayberry Cafe to eat in the idyllic 1950s town of the Andy Griffith Show. Frank #5 has car trouble where he can’t drive over 40 mph. He takes it to a dealership to be looked at but then no one will come pick him up for lunch. When asked for fun things to do in town the waitress suggests setting fires in a field and hanging out at Walmart.

The group goes to flea markets and outlet stores in Indiana. Bry starts to feel ill and considers staying behind an extra day and just catch up later. Eventually he and Maribeth make the decision to head back to NJ.

The Fives and the Flanagans find a town where they have giant versions of items like in the Fortress of Solitude.

After all the concerned emails from Ants the group do not end up hiking to the bottom of the canyon and instead stick to the touristy areas like the chocolate fountain and the pizza parlor.

Walt encounters the most condescending tour guide he has ever met in his life at a Jeep off-roading excursion. She hated Walt for asking questions and was jealous when he talked to another guide about squirrels with the Bubonic plague. The tour guide also was extremely angry with BLM – the Bureau of Land Management.

The group visits Tombstone Arizona.

The group then goes on a Breaking Bad tour in New Mexico.

Walt and family go to the most dangerous mall in America where there were firearm sniffing dogs and posters warning about car break-ins and the carrying of guns. A waitress with a black tear drop tattoo angrily served them while staring down Alicia.

The group visit Metropolis IL.

It is revealed that Frank 5 bags up his trash to throw out at his dad’s house rather than pay for privatized waste management.

Walt gifts Bryan with Blue Sky rock candy from the Breaking Bad tour and a Frankenstein head gear shift.

Frank 5 backs down from a steak eating challenge.

A Green Chef ad has Walt mistaking Paleo for Paedo.

Git’em annoys Bryan by asking if Sage and Maribeth like waffles and then sending him a picture of a lewd waffle maker.

Cryptic Riddles


I Fought the Law and the Law One

High Ho Ho Low

Snow Ballin’

Family Feud

Character Guessing Game

Rap Battle

Memorable Moments:

Tom gets to sit at the table this year instead of on the floor like in 2019. This time Tom acts at game master to allow Walt to play along with Bry and Q against Git’em, Ming, and Sunday Jeff. No stakes this year, just bragging rights.

Walt tells of how he tried to get rid of Git’em for the 2013 Christmas show after they finished recording the Fiasco Pod but he stuck around and produced gold with his retelling of his worst holiday memories.

Bry begins his own Christmas tradition by tailoring his tree to precisely his taste with horror themed ornaments and not using any cheap generic ones or hand me downs from Pam. Walt’s tradition of driving around looking at Christmas lights is going to change up a little this year as his youngest daughter will be the driver.

The Christmas Special is split between games and Christmas Chats.

Chat #1: Christmas Present. What does it feel like to be sitting together again for the 10th annual TESD XMas pod?

Game #1: Cryptic Riddles. In an effort to reduce player rage, Tom actually explains the rules of the game and how the riddles work. This combined with giving helpful (easy) clues leads to a perfect score for both teams. Walt questions if people are going to enjoy a game where everyone gets the right answers and there is no in-fighting. Ming, a Catholic, questions the validity of the Immaculate Conception.

Game #2: Dyslexia. Once again the clues provided by Tom lead to both teams solving most of these clues. Ming accidentally tells Mike he’ll see him at the TESD Christmas Pod, despite the fact he wasn’t invited. Is a Pole Vault the opposite of a Cane? Q has been re-watching I Love Lucy and is amazed at how funny it still is this day and age.

Chat #2: Christmas Future. Each person discusses their hopes and dreams of Christmas’ yet to come. Bry plans to drive up to hang out with Q Christmas Night but Walt thinks as a newlywed that plan will be squashed. Git’em wants to start a family and plant Christmas trees. Sunday Jeff spent a few Christmas’ with the Flanagan family and everyone had a great time.

Game #3: I Fought the Law and the Law One. Tom has a series of three Christmas related laws the teams have to guess which are true.

Game #4: High Ho Ho Low. Tom teaches an economics class as most of these questions are about commerce.

Chat #3: If a Christmas Carol was real and you could invite one person from Christmas Past, Present, and Future to dinner who would you? Q chooses Git’em’s future child, Walt chooses present Tom Brady, and Bry chooses his Grandmother. Git’em chooses his past self to try and warn him of his fate, Ming also chooses Tom Brady to steal him from Walt, and Sunday Jeff confusingly picks a future George Lucas to ask him a series of fanboy questions.

Game #5: Snow Ballin’. Tom gives the name of a sex act he found in a women’s health magazine and the guys have to guess what it entails.

Game #6: Family Feud.

Game #7: Holiday Character Guessing Game.

Game #8: Rap Battle

Games Played

Baron Trivia Contest

Physical Challenges


Memorable Moments:

Walt announces that this will be the first of three Halloween podcasts released this October. This audio version is available for free with the video available to all tiers on the TESD patreon. The All New Sunday Jeff Show and Father von Flanagan Halloween episodes to come in the following weeks.

Svengoolie introduces the 2020 TESD Halloween Spectacular.

Baron von Flanagan tells us that by the end of the show either Bryan, Sunday Jeff or Q the White Baron will be elevated to a brand new member of the Colored Cadre of Fiends. If Q comes in third place he will be stripped of his White Baron title and that given to whoever comes in second place.

Walt announces his displeasure that not one newspaper or news station covered the fact that TESD donated “10 Grand!” to a local NJ orphanage last Christmas. Q says the same thing happened after the Tenderloins donated the entire ticket sales to Manchester Strong after the bombing.

Q gets too hot under the rubber mask of the White Baron so to compromise he offers to write “White Baron” on his Covid facemask. Walt and Bry tell him that might be misconstrued and come back to bite him on the ass.

Baron von Flanagan announces his co-hosts: Tomzoolie and Git’emvira.

The Contest to determine the newest Baron is unveiled. Tomzoolie has created a Jeopardy-like board of question categories that the contestants can choose from 5 different difficulty levels. In addition all 4 and 5 point questions come along with a physical challenge to be performed by Git’emvira to win extra points.

The question categories are as follows: A Southern Gentleman’s Askew View where Brian Maxwell gives a skewed synopsis of famous horror movies from the perspective of the villain. TESD Town Hall where a different member of TESD town gives horror movie trivia. Cliff’s Quotes where Ming Chen gives a unique take on a famous horror movie quote. What’s in a Title where a horror movie poster is revealed with the title removed.

The physical challenges are as follows: Skeleton Limbo, Make Q Laugh, Apple Cider Chug, Belt of Hot Dogs, Candy Bar Challenge, Ghost Bowling, Balloon Popping, Guess how many Candy Corn, Horror Movie Charade, and Donut on a Stick.

Q begins to question if Tom is slowly replacing Git’em in Walt’s affections.

A young Bryan Johnson was obsessed with a man’s dick in the old horror movie “Ghost Story”

The final challenge is to uncover the Dyslexia clues to complete the poem to summon the newest member of the Colored Cadre of Fiends.

“Glittery Knight, oh so fierce and mighty, like some 24 karat Charles Nelson Reilly. Baptized in countless showers of demonic pee, more flamboyant and fabulous than Liberace!” -Poem to summon the Golden Baron

The Gold Baron can only read facts about fabulous celebrities like Judy Garland.

“You really think you can be happy?” – Erik about Bry

Memorable Moments:

This episode was recorded at Bryan Johnson’s bachelor party at the Gramercy Mansion in Maryland.

The TESD crew discuss previous bachelor parties. Walt’s was held at a NJ Devil’s game whereas Erik took everyone to a Drag Bar called Aunt Charlie’s.

Erik reveals that in medical school future doctors train using paid prostate models who get hundreds of fingers up their ass all day long.

Walt insists that after the wedding Bryan will become the favored Johnson son.

Bry feels getting married makes him feel much more like an adult.

Gitem turned down going to the wedding so he could man the Stash.

Erik flexes his prosperity by sending picture of his new Malibu beach house to Bry.

Comic Book Men producer Brian Nashel was told by his wife he could not travel during Covid to go to the wedding.

A drunk and bitter Erik Johnson does not agree with the Happy Wife, Happy Life advice given by the other married people at the party. It is revealed he and his wife are separating after her infidelity.

The Johnson brothers recall a time Pam hid in a closet trying to stab herself in the stomach with a knife in front of the kids. Erik diagnoses her with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Walt considers standing up after the officiant announces Bryan and Maribeth man and wife and shouting “Tell’em Steve Dave!”

Q announces he will be officiating the ceremony. Ming reminds everyone both he and Mike are also licensed to preside over weddings.

Walt tells Bry he was feeling nervous for him driving down, but that he is glad Bryan is finally at a place where he will allow himself to be happy.

Chicago 1871, San Francisco 1906, Farmingdale 2019…these are the fires that history will remember. Join Bry, Walt and Q along with Git ‘Em Steve Dave as he recounts what it was like to receive the call no one wants to receive…the one telling them that their former residence pretty much looks like an ashtray from a 1970’s Elks Club.

Git ‘Em Steve-Dave


“You might be a suspect in the fire.” – Q to Walt after hearing he returned to Gitem’s house three days in a row for a Patreon shoot.

“I speak Gitem and I speak Fireman so I was able to translate.” – Q

“You probably knew at some point you’d be helping Gitem bury bodies in his backyard.” – Bry to Q

“It’s going to take more than two of you to take me down.” – Gitem to the cops trying to keep him from rushing into his house.

“I should be your fuckin’ Queer Eye for the Gitem Guy.” – Walt about purchasing Gitem new clothes.

“I only knew it was your dad when I heard him looking for a Puerto Rican to shoot.” – Bry

Memorable Moments:

Walt, Bryan, Q and Gitem tell of a fire that devastated Gitem’s house in late July 2019.  On the day of the tragedy nearly all of TESD town were gathered at the stash recording an episode of Tell ‘Em Steve Dave and were on their way to the Monmouth County Fair to finally fulfill their vision from #236: Mub of doing a Making Hay trip to the fair.  Sunday Jeff was dressed in farmers overalls and Gitem in a sleeveless shirt depicting a mulleted Eagle.

Git’Em receives the call from a family friend while everyone was en-route to the fair in a long caravan.   As Gitem speeds to his house to survey the damage Walt, Bry, Q and Sunday Jeff decide they should be with him in his time of need and abandon their plans to film at the fair.  Luckily Walt had been creating Patreon content over the last few weeks and despite having known him for almost a decade only recently found out where he lived.

As a former fireman Q instantly goes into first responder mode and takes charge of the situation, talking with the police officer who was threatening to arrest Git’em if he didn’t settle down.  All the police and fire fighters were very professional, not one asked Q for a selfie.

After the fire is put out Q and Git’em enter the house to survey the damage.  Git’em takes a still cold beer from his ruined fridge and begins drinking.

Sadly both of Gitem’s cats perished in the fire, Q and he bury the bodies in Gitem’s pet cemetery.

The guys meet Gitem’s father, who was mentioned in NYC Podfest 2016: The Long Burn during Gitem’s 1-True-3.  Gitem’s is happily surprised to see that his son has friends at all, let alone such good ones.

Memorable Moments:

Bry and Walt attend the Clerks 3 reading to save The First Avenue Playhouse where Kevin held auditions for Clerks.  Bryan gets recruited to read lines up on stage by Ernie O’Donnell, Walt declines the invitation.  Q thinks they should rename the theater after Kevin.

Brian O’Halloran’s girlfriend is very proud of her gated community.  Bryan has to knock her down a peg by bringing up how much it must snow up there.  Walt mishears and thinks they live in a Gay Community.  Q mentions that would be even luckier with how the gays improve property values.

Walt emasculates Bryan when he overhears him asking Maribeth to get him almonds.

Q takes Sunday Jeff to the Prudential Center to see KISS and gives him the VIP treatment.  Walt and Bryan do not receive invitations.  Q cites a negative experience the pair had with Gene while shooting Comic Book Men and how Bry embarrassed Quinn at the Iron Maiden show.  Q tells how he practically runs the Prudential and can go anywhere and park wherever he wants.  Sunday Jeff rocks out doing air guitar and high fiving Q whenever a new song starts.  Walt keeps trying to rain on Quinn’s parade by telling him the band is actually lip syncing and that it’s not the real KISS anyway and practically a cover band since half the original line-up is missing.


Bryan and Maribeth are in suburban hell at a Descendants 3 party at one of Sage’s friends house where the other guests all talk about their kids and their jobs and laugh at how the hosts’ names are Brian and Marybeth but their names are Bryan and Maribeth!  Bry livens up the party by making jokes about Maribeths young age and tells stories of Sage’s father hanging himself.

#318: Q’z Brewz is one step closer with BQ reviving a classic Staten Island beer company, Rubsam & Horrmann Brewing Company.  There is a launch party later in September with Sal and Bryan as special guest bartenders.  Q mentions that he designed the label to include some TESD easter eggs.

Memorable Moments:

Walt and Gitem host this all game episode as teams I Sell Comics, TESD, and SunTroy Jeff go head to head to head.  Father Lance, Chris Laudando, and Mr and Mr.s 5 act as judges.

Walt pulls an audible halfway through All Apologies when the teams keep getting the questions right and demands they all give an apology.

Chris Laudando starts giving scores including decimal points up to the thousandths place to throw off Gitem’s score-keeping.

The Blue Baron returns to give more cryptic riddles.  Bry and Q are much better this time around.

Reoccurring Segments:

Fat Newz:  Fat airline passenger demands a stewardess to pull his pants down and wipe his ass for him.

Memorable Moments:

Bry loses the card with the last episode on it causing him to have to use goPro footage instead.  Walt thinks Bry should start leaving the card in Gitems responsible hands.

Bry accuses Chris Laudando of having loose lips about the ep 400 spectacular.

Gitem and Chris get into an online argument about the smirking MAGA hat kid while Gitem was supposed to be posting eBay auctions.  Laudando contacts Walt about it causing Walt to get annoyed.

Walt says that Mike and Ming’s ‘Takin’ Hay’ is now non-cannon in the Makin’ Hay trilogy, just like the all chick Ghostbusters.

Leslie Jones is upset that there is a new Ghostbusters coming out with the original cast.  Walt thinks Bry and Q should give a Space Monkeys commentary track about the Ghostbusters reboot.

At Collingswood the guys stop at Cutting Edge Weapons.  Q starts spreading a rumor about Dennis the magazine guy being a ladies man who has bedded all the female shopkeepers.  Bry promises to tase Maribeth in her sleep should they get over 100k patreon subscribers.

Walt imagines Collingswood in the 1970s to be like Studio 54.

As an 8th grader Bry’s mom Pam brought him home a severed finger in formaldehyde to play with.

Walt wants to take his daughter Alicia to the Office musical for her birthday.

While talking to the pickle stand lady Walt and Bry reminisce about a hazing ritual the high schoolers would pull on incoming 8th graders where they would stick a pickle up their ass and make them run the bases of a baseball field.  If the pickle fell they would force the 8th grader to take a bite and repeat.  Bry carried around a machete for the entire summer to protect himself from this torment.

The smoke shop and cellphone stand owner Keith recognizes Q from TV and punches him in the gut repeatedly trying to out-prank him by yelling “You Stepped in It!” .   He also has a knee-slapper he tells to guys there with their girlfriends asking if he saw the customer there with a different girl the day before.  Keith is well regarded as the biggest asshole in Collingswood.

Walt confuses a bong with a sex aid and asks if people could get off blowing smoke up their partners asses.

The foam store has taken over Dennis’ old space.  Q peels off a poster to reveal Dennis’ old sign.

The new magazine guy is Darren who purchased it from Jim who took it over from Dennis.  Walt is relieved to hear that Dennis still lives and wants to commission a statue of him to place in Collingswood.

The guys talk to the foam lady.

Tina X returns!  Q tries to seduce her away from her boyfriend.

Elephants in the Room

Pod Description:

In the summer of 2017, the podcast Tell ‘Em Steve-Dave filmed a gameshow pilot episode to pitch to an unnamed television network.

“ElephANTs in the Room” combines the classic atmosphere of beloved gameshows, with the insightful and humorous world of podcasting.

When you add in elephant-based physical changes, and the perils of taboo topics that no that sane person would ever dare to discuss, you get “ElephANTs in the Room!”

With an explosive and shocking final challenge, it’s safe to say you have NEVR seen a gameshow like this!

The name of the game is taken from the common phrase that means an obvious topic that is difficult to talk about.  Two teams compete representing a different listener.  For the team that wins their listener wins 100 dollars of their podcast’s merchandise.    Each team in turn is asked an Elephant related question.  If the question is answered correctly the team wins 15 points.  If the question is answered incorrectly the team can choose to A)  Give a 2.5 minute long podcast about an “Elephant in the Room” controversial topic.  The podcast is judged by the ‘Peanut Gallery’ and can win between 3-15 points or B) Compete in an Elephant themed physical challenge versus Gitem and if victorious win an automatic 15 points.

At the end of the game the winning team can compete in the Pachyderm Paycheck Challenge in order to double or triple their listener’s winnings.  A large constructed elephant is brought into the room and a player from the winning team must stick their head up it’s rectum and route around all the brown muck for a paycheck.
