TMRO show topic archive


TMRO has been going for 10 years and we’ve had a LOT of guests and discussion topics during that time.

In fact, we’ve had so many that there’s even enough to fill in a spreadsheet!

Curious about who we’ve had on the show? Wonder what episode it was when regular guests such as Dave Masten, Will Pomerantz or Emory Stagmer first appeared? Want to see the very first occurrence of puglock?!

You can find it all in the awesome spreadsheet that Duta made, here:

BUT - the spreadsheet isn’t complete. That’s where the community comes in! It takes time to go through our Youtube archives and copy across the data. If you’d like to help us out, feel free to fill in any holes in our spreadsheet, or add notes if something really cool happened in that episode (like the first appearance of a minature Stoj)

It’s pretty neat to see how much we’ve covered over the years. Enjoy!

Digging through the TMRO geological strata

Totally needed. TMRO has so much history and content that an official historian/librarian may be necessary. Perhaps when I retire!

Wow. This is super helpful, thank you!


Here is an afternoon-coffee-induced thought: Should an ongoing list like this actually be stewarded and accessible on instead of living as an isolated file?


I believe someone occasionally updates our Wikipedia page with updates about shows and subjects.


This is an awesome list, Roger!

I’ve been keeping a spreadsheet with all of our links to all of our videos. Would you be interested in entering those links in it? If so, DM me an email address, and I can grant you access to the sheet.
