The ‘It Me’ Podcast: Remembering A Twitter Legend And Talking About Miami

We like to joke about how Twitter is a dumb website where nothing ever gets done and nothing matters. And for a large portion of the time, this is true. Twitter is a time suck. People get in dumb arguments. Things end up being way more important than they actually are.

But there are also connections being made. Likeminded people meet up – in real life, or just in long Twitter conversations – to laugh, to share opinions, and to goof off. It leads to some truly amazing moments. And in the case of @TomBroDude, amazing humanity came out of a tragedy.

We brought in some of Tom’s internet friends to discuss his life, and, well things went off the rails immediately. So we honored him faithfully. We also have a second podcast where we discuss the Miami Hurricanes.

Here were some of the topics:

  • Our favorite tweets from Tom
  • How humor is a mirror for real life
  • Trillballins saying “folks”
  • Trill having an extremely woke take about Coinstar
  • Toyotathon
  • There was a crow in the background that wanted to be heard
  • What’s the ceiling for Mark Richt at Miami
  • And more
