This week we drone on about drones (HAHA just kidding, that's just a joke… a preview of some of the hilarity you'll hear in this episode), but not the controversial scary kind. Tom has become obsessed with Amazon's recently announced prototypical drone delivery service and has some big plans for when its implemented.
We also talk about an encounter on the street with a few colorful characters of varying levels of attractiveness and we discuss the job of "futurist" as a possible career path. And in a new installment of Tim & Tom Solve Your Problems, we discuss a listener's question about her devotion to her pets.

This week we’re talking about personal finance, and to kick it off we decide to talk about a bunch of things we don’t understand, such as the iPhone app Bitstrips, the NSA, running robots, soldiers’ personal assistants, Second Life destroying relationships, addicting iPhone games and Snapchat.
Later Tom rants about the new fancy pants “Coin” credit credit bluetooth do-hicky for your phone while simultaneously defending his nerd watch, leading to Tim demanding to go through Tom’s wallet card by card live on air. Tim also talks about the time his identity was stolen and resulted in fraudulent adult website charges on his credit card as Tom explains how he [...]
This week we hear the epic tale of Tom's recent time spent at the local courthouse. No, he wasn't once again accused of a crime he didn't commit, he was there for jury duty. Who was there with him? Well, a famous movie star you might know. (Michael Rapaport, perhaps? No, not Michael Rapaport.) And a judge and some bailiffs… you know, the whole gang.
Also, Tim talks about a recent marathon of the television show Extreme Couponing he watched for 8 hours, and we discuss whether or not it is possible to buy gold doubloons from the government.
Finally, in a new installment of Tim and Tom Solve [...]
This week we’re talking about something neither of us is qualified to talk about in anyway whatsoever: Modern Art! But before the conversation gets all hoity-toity we discuss Tom’s love of summertime and seasonal beers. We also discuss the merits of possibly just putting MSG on all the food you eat to make it delicious and Tom recounts the time he ruined a turf soccer field by bleeding all over it.
As far as artists are concerned, we cover everyone from Banksy to Hanksy, making stops in between to discuss graffiti as an art form, adults who skateboard, Miley Cyrus, @Horse_ebooks, Sting’s real meaning behind The Police’s ‘The Bed’s [...]
This week, Tom takes the helm and is given free reign to talk about anything he wants. Naturally, he turns the conversation to dog-related matters, recounting a recent trip to a hipster veterinarian. We also talk about the logistics of veterinarians treating all different kinds of animals and whether or not you can accurately treat a dog's illnesses with information you find on the internet. Rounding out the animal talk, we discuss the strange case of a missing pet parrot that haunts the neighborhood.
In a new installment of Tim & Tom Solve Your Problems we tackle problems regarding giving oneself a nickname and hanging out with feuding friends. [...]
