I’ve written before that I like listening to talk radio and one of my favorite people to listen to is Daniel Dennis. I’ve featured Dan on my weekly What’s your favorite sandwich? He and his wife, Andrea, recently were my models for my newest shirt: Hoagie. Dan has a very successful podcast that he does with his best friend Tom Vann. Together with Ross and Samantha they do A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan. They go on live on every Friday’s at 2pm and you can always download the podcast and listen to them any time.
I am a fan of the show and listen to their podcasts during my commute to and from work. It is a very entertaining and funny show. It helps with the rush hour traffic. The language and content is meant for adult audiences and not suitable for children.
I had the opportunity to visit them at their 17 story studio to watch them in action last Friday. It was different to see them do their show live since I only just get to hear them in my car. I really had a blast seeing how it all gets done. I was also able to speak with them during the show about Deli Fresh Threads, sandwiches and what our favorite sandwiches were.
The reason the show works and was just recently named Orlando Weekly’s 2013 Best of Orlando Radio program is that Tom and Dan are friends and are just talking about life and Ross does the news while Samantha adds her thoughts. They all mix well and play off each other. You can hear their chemistry and flow back and forth with one another.
The show started because Tom and Dan wanted to do something together and drink a few beers and have fun. They both worked together and would have some funny conversations and make themselves cry laughing. They talk to each other just like you may with some of your friends or maybe think of and wouldn’t say out loud. They enjoy making each other laugh and thought others would enjoy, so they decide to record it. Which means you get to laugh with them while you listen to A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan.
