The Sal and Bob Show

The Sal and Bob Show is a podcast hosted by comedians Sal Demilio and Bob Phillips.

They love steakhouses, so they visit some of the best in the country, crack wise and generally act like idiots while enjoying a great meal. They talk comedy, gambling, sports, movies and other things that interest us. With regular bits like the One Hit Wonder and The Whine List, it's a lively half hour of nonsense.
