1st Annual Threatsgiving: A Tribute to McDonald's (Not Sponsored by McDonald’s)
In lieu of Thanksgiving with your family this year, celebrate Threatsgiving with Tom and Julie, where they talk about McDonald’s for two hours! It's the audio equivalent of eating fast food in your car! Featuring interviews with McDonald’s scholars Connor Ratliff, Ian Abramson, and Justin Strong AND a roundtable expose with former McDonald's employees! Tom and Julie get to the bottom of McDonald's mysteries such as, Why is Grimace shaped like that? Which menu items are the easiest for employees to steal? Why did the McDonald's Hot Dog fail? And what's the deal with that scene in Fargo where Wade Gustafson is worried about what his grandson Scotty Lundegaard is ACTUALLY doing at McDonald's? PLUS exclusive video footage of Producer Brett's brief childhood career as a traveling clown magician - featuring a performance at a McDonald's birthday party! And a very very BIG surprise if your name is DARYN! Not to mention, Cousin Linda's Famous Chili, everything Julie remembers about Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Motörhead at McDonald's, Doug Jones, rabbis vs priests, John Wayne Gacy vs The Kinks, and more!
