    Oh my god! I forgot to thank Rick (DJ Technoid) for our wonderful theme music! I SUCK!!! I’m sorry Rick, I will make it up to you somehow.

    I also forgot Noah’s recipe segment…fuck me!

  2. Bryce (Tancasts #_ Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    You’re doin’ it. I fucking loved it. The first part with Andy could have used a little of that speed-up effect though. I mean, fuck. There’s long-winded and then there’s Andy. Fuck.

    It was a great show. Thanks for the shout outs. I’m sure the Pegging/Croc communities were pleased that they were represented.

  3. Chelsea (Tancasts #1 Fan named Chelsea)No Gravatar Says:

    woo hoo! a shout for me… wait… is it me? I’m assuming I’m the only Chelsea here. AH HA! my new name!

  4. Chelsea (Tancasts #1 Fan named Chelsea)No Gravatar Says:

    P.S.: Thanks again for reading the fairy tale again, I am SO tempted to make an animation short to this tale.

  5. Bryce (Tancasts #_ Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    That would be so awesome.

  6. Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Yes Chelsea I meant you and an animated version of the Andy and His Crocs fairy tale would be AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!

  7. Mysterious Matt (TANcast's #1 Mysterious Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    I haven’t heard all of the episode yet, but as always, despite lots of other things going on (KTLA semi-finals, anyone?), Super-editor comes through with the goods. Yay Tim!

  8. Andy (TANcast's #1 Ear-Rapist)No Gravatar Says:

    FUCK! I fucking HATE clip shows.

    Some asshole producer always thinks “Oh, I know how we’ll keep the budget down! We’ll have a show where the characters have flashbacks or tell stories or something!” No new content, no plot progression, no significance at all, just enough linking filler to justify the recycled shots and use up the weekly timeslot. They don’t even use all the actors. Sometimes it’s just one character narrating awkwardly between the clips!

    I know Clerks: The Animated Series subverted this by having a clip show as their second episode, but that doesn’t excuse it.

    Lazy motherfuckers…

  9. Andy (TANcast's #1 Ear-Rapist)No Gravatar Says:

    In all seriousness, if TANcast actually had a budget it would be measured in time (and Vietnamese hookers), because that is really what we spend to make it.

    Tim’s time is already the commodity we consume the most of, and I’m pretty sure piecing this PREPisode together blew right past “manually re-assembling Noah’s audio after Audacity crashed” and got into “sorting a sack of rice with tweezers” territory.

    Kudos, sir. TANcast would owe you a bonus if it made any money at all.

  10. LoganNo Gravatar Says:

    How many Vietnamese hookers would that bonus be?

    Thanks for the special shout out. I enjoyed all of the episodes,even if my ears where bleeding, and my rectum was loose from diarrhea…

    Great clip show.

  11. LoganNo Gravatar Says:

    Oh BTW: The new intro kicks ass.

  12. FykesNo Gravatar Says:


    Thought of you guys when I saw this!!!

  13. Mysterious Matt (TANcast's #1 Mysterious Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Great work, Tim. Thanks for the shout-out and great to relive so many great TAN moments.

  14. Logan (Tancast #1 Annoyed Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    You should post up a listing of what episode each clip came from for the new people that listen to this as their first one and want to go back and check out those episodes.

  15. JohnNo Gravatar Says:

    Great clip show. Classic stuff! Your efforts are much appreciated, Tim!

  16. AdamNo Gravatar Says:

    The Prepisode Made My workout not suck but laughing while bench pressing is never a good thing

  17. GeoffNo Gravatar Says:

    My favorite part of this special prepisode wasn’t even a clip. Tim ranting about Andy and Noah’s lack of help was classic. “I hope you die peacefully in your sleep, with me taking a shit on your eyes.” Fucking brilliant.

  18. Logan (Tancast #1 Annoyed Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Excuse my language but….SON OF A BITCH. Vietnamese Hookers is Episode #25! I stopped on 24….ugh. fail.

  19. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF/GILF)No Gravatar Says:

    Can’t wait to listen. My only diemma is this: Do I listen now, or save it for vacation in VegasBabyVegas starting on Memorial Day. I’m thinking I can’t wait…

  20. Victoria (TANcast's #1 FANGIRL)No Gravatar Says:

    I am seriously touched by your mention of me. You guys are amazing, and I will continue to keep listening since I have been since the beginning. I keep on laughing out loud during math class because of TANcast, so thank you. They think I’m crazy.

  21. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF/GILF)No Gravatar Says:

    I haven’t finished yet – I’m only 7 hours through (thanks, Andy)

    But thanks for the return of Happy Fuck You. I forgot to mention it on your requests, I think, and I’m so glad it’s there… 🙂

  22. Joe Anthrax (TANcast's #1 Conservative Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    This episode really shows how much you effort put into the show Tim, and it is truly appreciated by all of us. Here’s to at least 100 more episodes of TANcast!

  23. Jason (TANcast's #7 Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Loved the episode. I knew the episode was long but i wished for more. Tim, thank you for doing such a great job with editing the episodes.

  24. Melanie (TANcast's #1MILF/GILF)No Gravatar Says:

    Hey guys, thanks for the mention. I had a really shitty day today, and that really picked me up. I’m more seriously touched than Victoria. 😉

    (Aww, Chicken Soup for the TANnasty soul…)

    Great PREPisode, can’t wait for the next 100.

  25. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fanNo Gravatar Says:

    Thanks Tim. You did it, and now it’s done.

  26. Andrew, TANcast's #[square root of -1] Australian fanNo Gravatar Says:

    Just before the release of this episode, I caught up, having listened to all the episodes in order over the last couple of months. I now feel strangely familiar with Tim, Andy and Noah, and yet they know nothing of me. Congratulations boys, I think this makes you genuine CELEBRITIES.

    Thanks for getting me into this, Murray. It’s all your fault.

  27. Rick Reed/DJ Technoid (TANcast's No.1 Themesong Creator Fan)_No Gravatar Says:

    Thanks, Tim! You are probably still tired after listening to about 100+ hours of TANtalk, but we still want more. The PREPisode covered just about everything anyway. Good job, and Whew! Ready for #100!

  28. NoahNo Gravatar Says:

    Good job Tim! I may not say it but I am impressed by the dedication and time you put into TANcast. He makes our turd shine a golden brown.

  29. VrejNo Gravatar Says:

    Tim, you’re doing it

  30. TankNo Gravatar Says:

    The Neverending Story is my favorite TANcast moment ever. That episode always stays on my podcast.

  31. Melanie (TANcast's #1MILF/GILF)No Gravatar Says:

    Forgot to mention – loved the TANwives intro!

  32. Hale (TANcast's #1 Mousetalgia Fan)No Gravatar Says:

    Thanks a bunch, this really helped lead me in.

    Any chance of the GoateeMan REMIX being released as an MP3? LOVE that.

  33. Grace (#1 Redheadeddisneyfreak)No Gravatar Says:
