084: Friendlytown Gets Audited!

Nothing is certain except death, taxes, and that the smell of the burning remains of the Friendlytown Hummus Factory will forever be in our clothing. But this week, we’re focusing on our taxes.

Friendlytown’s tax revenue department is sending an auditor (Shane Rhyne, CPA) to ask questions about some peculiar deductions and claims made in the Friendlytown tax returns this year. Sit back and watch our comedian residents squirm as they attempt to explain their way out of this mess. 

Come on out and see why the local press has recently said, “This is a show that takes place every Monday.” Continue reading

083: Friendlytown Hosts a REAL Open Mic

A note from your guest hosts, The Copy Writers: Hello fellow artists, we would like to give you an opportunity to share your gifts with your fellow craftsman of creativity. We will be hosting an Open Mic at the appropriately grungy Pilot Light. Ripped jeans and scarves are not required but highly encouraged. The night will be filled with the exchange of imagination, such as but not limited to: dramatic readings, songs, interpretive dance, instrumental expression, contortionists, method silence, etc. There’s only one rule: no stand-up comedy. None. Continue reading

082: Friendlytown Canonizes a Patron Saint!

(Live at the Pilot Light 4/2/18) FRIENDLYTOWN NEEDS A PATRON SAINT! Someone to look to when we require comfort and clarity in spite of hearing Uncle Terrence tell us for the fiftieth time how he won that wing-eating contest in Ann Arbor almost 15 years ago now (those poor butterflies). But who, or what, would best soothe (or exacerbate) the struggles and strife of Friendlytown living?

Hosted by the Pastor of the Friendlytown Non-Denominational Churthedralgogsque (Chur-thee-drul-gogsk), Beth Tomkins. Continue reading

081: Friendlytown Fixes EVERYTHING (Post-Festival Edition)

What a mess. Friendlytown hosted a music festival and now the entire town is in tatters! Cars have been ransacked, buildings have been overturned, statues have been defaced (no really, someone knocked the faces off all our statues) and now it is up to the Friendlytown Town Council to fix everything!

The Council has appointed Mayor Sean as the Emergency Crisis Management Czar and given him power to call upon the other mayors of Friendlytown to concoct solutions to the multitude of festival shenanigans.  Tune in and hear about how they fixed things up while magically staying under budget!

080: Friendlytown Used Car Emporium

It’s our 80th show!!! Are you tired of taking the bus and having to bike in the rain while aggro dudes in pickup trucks call you homophobic slurs? Are you tired of having to leech rides off of friends? Do you want to beef up (no pun intended) that carbon footprint of yours? Of course you do! So, look no further than Friendlytown’s Used Car Emporium. We got fields of cars in various states of operability, and wait until you hear from our team of salespeople, including a return from Eastern European sporting legend Bogdan Ivanovich.

We successfully sent Mayors Tyler and Sean on a wild goose chase to Cleveland, so we could have all of this delicious, delicious Friendlytown Pizza to ourselves! Listen to us as we eat it and discuss it! LISTEN! Also, listen for a cameo from Mayors Tyler and Sean, who sent us a video via live satellite hookup or something.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy an hour of the finest new programming that FAPTV has to offer. The best part about podcasting it is that you don’t have to stare at the ranter’s face. Continue reading

078: The FAPTV Premiere of ‘Hot Wheelz/Hot Takes!’

On March 5, we brought together all of the powers that be from Friendlytown Access, Public Television (FAPTV) to premiere our brand new show, Hot Wheelz / Hot Takes, where we all sit in our cars and complain about banal shit into our phones! If the timbre of the American public and inexplicable popularity of Chewbacca mom are any indication, the people don’t want exhaustively produced programming – they want disposable pap that anyone who can afford an iPhone can churn out between dropping the kids off at soccer practice and going home to a spouse they don’t love anymore! Well, if there’s one thing we at Friendlytown are all about, it’s mass appeal and being people pleasers. 

So, sit back, relax and enjoy an hour of the finest new programming that FAPTV has to offer. The best part about podcasting it is that you don’t have to stare at the ranter’s face. Continue reading
