The Worst Idea Of All Time

18: Cheesecake Factory

This episode is accidentally being released out of the order in which it was recorded because Tim f***ed up (sue me!)


Brought to you by The Cheesecake Factory, this watch of F8 sees Tim in his native of Auckland and Guy across the ditch in Australia. Guy can mentally only categorise this film as a collection of GIFs, rather than cinema, on this watch and is addressing one of the elephants in the room. Tim attempts to defend the flick by discussing modern Hollywood's move to make every blockbuster movie into a theme park ride for the eyes and ears, whilst having a hard time reconciling his horrible work with his beautiful family life. This highbrow discussion is railroaded by both of fellaz being absolutely fascinated by American food chain, The Cheesecake Factory, who sponsored this episode.

    A beautiful day in Aotearoa finds Tim and Guy pondering some heavy questions. Can Pope Francis redeem the Catholic church? How is AI impacting primary education? What are those crystals that you get in certain kinds of honey? Thankfully, a delightful Guest on the Ground, Courtney Dawson, and an equally delightful edition of Drugs in a Tree help lift the mood. Plans are laid for a house band, Tim kills at the checkout aisle, and Guy reboots beloved season 1 segment Sandwich in a Tree with a season 2 twist (an almond croissant).Video episodes available on our Substack

Tim debuts a new segment called A Little Something for You. Guy presents a new take on an old favorite, Sandwich in a Tree (an almond croissant).Join our Substack for video episodes and early releases!

    Peter Jackson. Interviews with comedians. The very premise of Podcast in a Tree. It’s episode 2 and everything is on the chopping block. With the boys content to rest on their laurels, it falls upon Guest on the Ground, Guy Williams, to shake things up.

Recorded live in front of a soldout CineFamily crowd on Sunset in Los Angeles, California. After a public viewing of the movie the lads have finally seen the backend of the movie. What ensues is an elated, nonsensical final romp through a film that's been a part of the boys' life for a long time. It's time to say goodbye.

It's an emotional podcast this week, Montgomery is mainly waking up for most of it and what is exposed is a raw, unguarded side of a man who is so near the finishline he can almost taste it. Voices are croacky, spirits are mixed and Guy and Tim are just trying to live every moment.
