Joel Murphy is joined by fellow Peak Sloth podcast host Marty McGuire and one other surprise guest … Jolene, the four-year-old pug Joel and Molly just adopted.
Joel and Marty go deep into talking pets, sharing stories of how Joel and Molly found Jolene and how Marty got his cats. They also talk about Elon Musk’s panned new post-apocalyptic cybertruck and Disney+’s The Mandalorian.
The Simpsons‘ annual “Treehouse of Horror” specials have become a celebrated tradition. For 29 years, the show has served up three Halloween-themed, non-canonical stories every October. However, in recent years, they haven’t been very good.
Still, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle continue to watch these specials. This week, they try to figure out why. They share their thoughts on this year’s special and the later years of the show in general.
They also discuss the new Star Wars trailer (which Lars refuses to watch).
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
End – “Halloween (Remix)” by The Coffinshakers

Todd Phillips’ Joker film (and the bizarre press tour leading up to the premiere) has been a frequent topic of discussion on Hobo Radio. Now that the movie is finally out in the world, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on Joker in what will (hopefully) be the last time they discuss it on the show.
Did they enjoy the film? How did it rank among other DC Comic films? Is there any way it might tie into a larger cinematic universe? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
