It’s been a while but Owen & TJ are back! Unfortunately, TJ had a little too much “fun” and is calling in from Florida State Prison. That doesn’t stop them from covering the recent news stories involving the long term effects of Sequestration, the North Korean nuclear missile threats on the United States, and restrictions on firearms in Connecticut.
The hilarious Owen Burke of the Owen & TJ Read The News podcast joins in on the craziness of Sklarbro County! Owen tells us about growing up in a mafia centered neighborhood in New York, being apart of the improvised show Facebook, and how Randy & Jason encouraged him to continue to pursue comedy. Dan Van Kirk brings in some insane stories including; two Kansas brothers accidentally blowing up a house while celebrating a lottery win with drugs, a man throwing semen at women in a New Mexico Walmart, and a mother passes drugs to her son in a jailhouse liplock. Also, we hear what Mark Wahlberg is up to in another edition of the Weekly Wahlberg. Make sure to get your tickets for a special screening of “Breaking Away” with Randy & Jason as part of the 2nd Annual Wayne Federman International Film Festival on February 28th at Cinefamily in Los Angeles and catch Randy & Jason perform stand-up on Friday, March 1st at the Ice House in Pasadena!
On today’s episode of Owen & TJ Read The News, Owen tries his best to read the news as TJ’s step dad Jack (Rob Riggle) drops by to give his two cents on the current events, describes his mentoring relationship with TJ, and tells us about his plans on becoming a wrestler. It gets real heavy when they discuss the fiscal cliff, why sports isn’t news and the war on Christmas.
We JUST RELEASED a brand-new podcast!
From the minds of Owen Burke (Funny or Die) and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights). Owen stays up on current events and TJ, a cell phone case salesman and aspiring hip hop artist, is more interested in what’s going on at the Hooters down at the Jacksonville, FL CityWalk. On Owen & TJ Read the News they discuss the top stories of the month together.
