This is the story of two humans that I know.
I’m, obviously, a kangaroo but I am very inclusive so I accept humans for what they are: humans.
Dan and Andy first worked together in early 2015 on Tag You’re It!
They said at that time, “hey, let’s do a podcast” but they didn’t know what to make it about. Later in 2015, Dan and Andy worked together on The Shoe Insole and they said at that time, “hey, let’s do a podcast” but they still didn’t know what to make it about. They worked together on The Patient Mechanic even later in 2015 but they didn’t waste their time talking about making a podcast then.
A few years had passed before Dan and Andy worked together again in 2017 on Sleep Puncher. They said at that time, “hey, let’s do a podcast” but they still didn’t know what to make it about. Dan actually wrote an essay on the disappointment of Quentin Tarantino’s directing career because he thought that they could make the podcast about that but Andy never responded to the e-mail.
In 2019, Dan and Andy worked on the award winning comedy short Dan’s Leg. Andy did all of the voice-over work for Dan’s Leg, including the internal monologue of a female character, and in editing Dan heard the beginnings of a podcast.
What Dan heard in the editing process is a funny rapport between the two guys that was enough to start a podcast that didn’t have a point or a title. Season 1 was the process to both find a point to the podcast as well as a title. They did successfully think of a title by episode 5, the last episode of season 1.
