You asked and Tim delivers, Brian Wenning is the guest on this week’s show.
And, as is only fitting when Wenning is involved, this episode is a bit more jenky than the first two – let’s thank beer and a history of drug abuse for that. Try and follow along as Tim gets Brian to talk about getting kicked off of Plan B, stealing Xanax from Antwuan Dixon, and innovating the mid-ledge pop-out.
Don’t forget to check the timeline, submitted questions, and mentioned links below the stream.
And keep sending emails to [email protected] so that Tim doesn’t run out of things to talk about – as if that would ever be a problem for him.

Tim, I’m fuckin hyped that you try to steer Wenning in the right direction. You had to repeat things over and over and over and he still couldn’t latch on to the topic sometimes, then just starts talking about condoms. Way to try to facilitate, its sad that it doesn’t seem like Wenning even understands that he’s still on his downfall.

“its sad that it doesn’t seem like Wenning even understands that he’s still on his downfall.”
Spot on man. Sounds like he’s still got so much anger. Respect for Tim O’Connor trying to make some sense out of it all. Less of the prostitute bashing next time though please.

Solid episode. Even though he was kind of dodging certain questions, the conversation gives a better idea of what Wenning’s like
