Hobo Radio 272 – Cinnamon Sparkle Chips

Newark Mayor Cory Booker got some national attention this week for a Buzzfeed story revealing that he had sent direct messages on Twitter to a stripper in Portland. The messages themselves were incredibly tame and the whole story seemed a bit overblown, but it got the attention of Joel Murphy and Lars for one very simple reason: the strip club the woman is employed at, a place called Casa Diablo, has billed itself as the “world’s first vegan strip club.” The two discuss what exactly make a strip club vegan in this week’s show.

The dynamic duo also talk about Clint Howard’s tour de force Ice Cream Man, the new Fox show Gotham and BBC’s Sherlock. And Lars talks about why he hates all cities in America while Murphy wholeheartedly endorses one city in this great nation of ours.

What city does Joel Murphy officially endorse? What do they serve for dessert at a vegan strip club? Will the boys ever learn when to drop the mic? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Hobo Radio 271 – When rugged just isn’t a strong enough word

We can all agree that Chris Hemsworth is an attractive man. But the degree to which Joel Murphy can admit he’s attractive has him feeling a slight bit uncomfortable. And his handsomeness also has Lars seeking a word stronger than “rugged” to describe just what it is that makes him so fetching.

The dynamic duo also discuss Joss Whedon flying into cities to save movie scripts, Ben Affleck’s ability to play a “tired and weary” and the best way to sell water and/or panhandle in a city. And Murphy talks about his big day in court, including the very lax dress code at the courthouse.

What’s the right word to describe Hemsworth’s handsomeness? What do the boys think should sweep the nation instead of Talk Like a Pirate Day? Who has that ice cold water? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Hobo Radio 270 – Joel Murphy, reality TV star

Earlier this week, Joel Murphy posted photos and a feature article about the 14th annual Baltimore Comic-Con, which was held this past weekend. But what he didn’t talk about in that article was how he ended up in the background of a segment being shot for the new season of Comic Book Men, which featured Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes interacting with the guys from the show. On this week’s podcast, he shares that story (and gives some insight into all of the careful planning that goes into filming “reality” TV).

Murphy and Lars also share the story of a vigilante movie reviewer who called the police to stop a man from using his phone in a theater. And, they tell the most adorable and sexy story ever involving Batman, a cat and a burning building.

How real is reality TV? How do Canadian police sirens sound? How underwhelming is Joel’s sexy voice? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Hobo Radio 269 – Can I kiss it?

It’s hard to define art. What one person sees as a beautiful artistic expression can just be a series of paint blotches to someone else. And what someone sees as an artistic photo of people’s feet can be seen as a creepy collection of foot fetish photos to someone else. This week on the podcast, Lars shares the story of a lady friend of his who encountered a man claiming to be a photographer looking to take photos of her feet, but quickly turned out to be a man on a mission for foot porn.

The dynamic duo also discuss terrible sports fashion choices, bad parking etiquette and the brilliance of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. And, Joel shares a ridiculous road sign he recently encountered.

What makes The World’s End a five-star movie? What can you buy for $15? Is tucking a jersey in ever appropriate? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
