Sometimes life has its brutal moments so it’s always good to talk things out and tell your family and friends how durn much you love them. Take a journey with Tig, Kyle, and David as they discuss how relationships start and why they sometimes end. Along with what is considered cheating, what is a turn off and if flowers are dorky. Don’t worry, this episode contains no boner danger.

What a shocker. Tig, you are so tough, and every time I think how amazing you are doing, you end up getting hit harder than before. I hope this is over with soon.

And I am glad you guys talked about flowers, because I had still thought of them as romantic. Kyle's anecdote about giving out flowers gave me like a sixth sense moment, where I saw a series of flashbacks of women receiving flowers, and their reactions suddenly had a whole new meaning. Thank you, Professor Blastoff.

Too short you guys.
I set my alarm for 3 am (EST) every tues because I love you all so much (even AAron) and I need this elixir of your banter to guide my day.
I was clenched up man when Tig began her horror. David, you are so wise, I feel she has had so much bullshit recently that maybe she is setting off other tests.
I love you Tig...I feel extremely positive for you.
Kyle...you are so eccentric and loving...even if you shout it.
Show idea: I worked at the old Largo from 98-2000. I find it strangely compelling that almost every comedian is staunch in their belief of atheism or scoffs at the fact of no God. Can you expound? I think Patton is one of these nay sayers. Personally, i was raised Catholic/now agnostic. Much love, Michael M

When I first listended to Tig's comedy I laughed SO much, which made me listen to this podcast. Now a year later it's part of my weekly routine to listen to this group of people having fun. All of you guys are great, and I wish Tig all the best!

I'm getting real sick of bad things happening to Tig. I'm going to start getting indignant on her behalf.
Pulling for you Tig.
David and Kyle, amazing as always.
Aaron.

Much like Tig's experience at the hospital waiting for her doctor, I was very much thinking, "What is this even about? Tig's fine. Tig's totally fine. There's no way." And then the doctor finally entering, and then Tig completely forgetting anything the doctor has just said, well, that happened to me once before, and it just happened in real time with Tig's story while I was listening. I had to rewind the podcast to re-listen to what just sounded like white noise to me at the story's conclusion.

I'm a testicular cancer survivor, and after two years of observation I was "in the clear." Around the time I finally got to stop taking quarterly tests, my friend then got cancer. The news turned my legs to jelly, my stomach dropped and I nearly threw up (he's ok now). This feeling was replicated just now while listening to the podcast. I'm grateful I was sitting down.

I don't have much to express right now other than outright concern and support. You guys are the best, you're my podcast buddies, I hope it's nothing and want it to be nothing with all of my heart, and I really really really really really really really really really really really really REALLY hope Tig's Teats turn out ok (them are li'l titties).

We all love you, Tig. (Yes, you guys too.) Let those of us who pray, pray HARD for healing and recovery for our dear friend. And those of us who don't pray, think good thoughts and send out positive energy to her.

It's easy to tell when someone has a good heart. Tig's good-natured humor is a gift to us all and we want to give back. I am asking Kyle, David and Aaron to hug Lil' Tig for me. She could not ask for better friends than those guys, but there are legions more out here who want to lift her up until she is well. May God bless all in the hatch! xxoo

What an emotional kick in the junk. My oldest daughter, Elizabeth, found me in my office softly crying after the show was over. She asked me what was wrong and I explained that someone I consider a friend (who I'll probably never meet but still care about as does my wife) is very sick.

She picked up her doll and asked me the person's name. After I told her, she smiled and said, "No. Tig will be okay soon. I like her name. Tig."

Can't argue with that medical science, so kiss my @$$.

Welp, that's been heartbreaking.

So bummed to hear about Tig's latest problem. Like the guys said, there's a decent chance that it will be nothing, and a good chance that she'll ultimately be fine if it does turn out to be cancer, but still, hearing about her physician's indifference was pretty infuriating. I know doctors use their best judgment, and I'm sure that not needlessly freaking people out factors into it, but it seems like you'd want to err on the side of caution.

On a lighter note, I hope the "main topic" (ha ha) of the episode isn't too ignored/forgotten, because it was really good. Kyle's tales of youthful awkwardness are always a delight and it was nice to hear about David's new-ish relationship. During the part where they were talking about cheating and Tig jokingly asked if Kyle's girlfriend is a serial cheater, it would have been the funniest thing ever is he had said, "Well, there was this thing with Matt Damon..."

Tig, we all hope you're going to be okay. Whatever we can do to help, we will. You are too damn wonderful! Please keep us updated.

Tig, I'm sure zillions of people will have stories for you about their experience with this but add me to the pile. I went through stage 2b breast cancer a couple years ago (not saying you have cancer for sure but if...). It was terrifying but they have come so far with treatments for breast cancer. Chemo and the subsequent surgery and treatments were no where near what I thought it would be. I worked most of the time without much issue. It was hard but not insurmountable. Cold comfort I know, but for me knowing I wasn't alone got me through the fear.

You are strong and surrounded by people that love you. That is strong medicine in itself. Hang in there and breathe and try to just take it day by day.

Sending you tons of good energy and support,
Crescent Prah

Sending good thoughts out to our wonderful Tig. No matter what the prognosis, you'll get through it and we'll all be here cheering you on. Sometimes bad luck comes in big, terrible piles and it just makes your life suck for a while. I've been through years like that; it's hard to believe that miserable things will ever stop pouring down on you, but in my experience they do (eventually).

Great episode, even with the sad stuff. The fact that Kyle will never run out of embarrassing stories really cheers me on tough days. Just hearing him talk about how that girl was always carrying around $1 bills... Oh, Kyle. Never stop being you!
