TOFOP (an acronym of Thirty Odd Foot Of Podcast) is a weekly Australian comedy podcast created and hosted by Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen, and launched in July 2010. Episodes are roughly an hour in length, and primarily consist of casual conversations between hosts Anderson and Clausen on a variety of recurring themes, including film, popular culture, and sport. Also commonly featured in the podcast were humorous personal anecdotes, and detailed discussions on bizarre hypothetical situations. Following significant media coverage in June 2012, TOFOP rose to become the most popular comedy podcast in Australia.

The podcast has over 50,000 followers in 70 countries mostly in Australia and the USA. Anderson and Clausen have made occasional appearances on episodes of TOFOP's "sister podcast," American comedy podcast Walking the Room. This relationship contributed greatly to the podcast's American popularity.

During Episode 83 of TOFOP, released on the 9th of September 2012, the projected long-term hiatus of the podcast was announced. Clausen and Anderson were deliberately vague in detailing the reasons for TOFOP's hiatus, other than the fact that a particular company employing Clausen had objected to the content of the podcast. In January 2013 the hiatus was revealed to have been requested by the Seven Network after Clausen had received a starring role as Zac MacGuire in popular Australian soap opera Home and Away. The show returned in February 2013 under the name FOFOP, a reference to a previous episode and the television show Fringe. However, due to contractual obligations the show returned without Clausen, and instead with Anderson and one or more guests, nicknamed "guest-Charlies".

On 1 June 2014 Clausen returned to TOFOP in Episode 84, after almost 2 years. Each episode of the podcast averages 20,000 downloads.
