In addition to an excuse to eat your weight in delicious food, Thanksgiving is a time to reconnect with friends and family. So this week, Joel Murphy and Lars reconnect with their pal Jane, who joins them for a Thanksgiving-themed podcast.

The trio discuss all things Thanksgiving, including the one dish they can’t live without and the odd, quirky things their individual families served. Joel also rants about his hatred of the phrase “Turkey Day” and they all discuss their aversion to Black Friday. Plus, they compete to see who has the most depressing Thanksgiving sob story.

What day is it? Why does it have to be Black Friday? Who had the saddest Thanksgiving? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Hobo Radio 280 – Capaldi’s eyebrows

[Editor's Note - Check by later today for an in-depth recap of "The Day of the Doctor."]

Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor” aired on Saturday, teaming up current Doctor Matt Smith with David Tennant and Jonh Hurt. It was an epic event simulcast around the globe, one that was highly anticipated by Who fans.

So for this week’s show, Joel Murphy and Lars bring on Fontina Turner and the trio devote the entire hour to discussing the special and the show in general. With topics including what they would wear as The Doctor and why Martha was the worst companion in the modern era, it’s a Doctor Who discussion you won’t get anywhere else.

What is Joel naming his rock band? Does Fontina know Christopher Eccelston? How much did Lars freak out at the sight of Tom Baker? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Doctor” by Bloom

Hobo Radio 279 – The Death Pube

No one would ever accuse Joel Murphy and Lars of being mature, but this week their immaturity reaches new heights as they partake in a Star Wars Madlibs. The two absolutely lose it as they throw every naughty word they can fathom into the blanks.

On a more serious note, Murphy is beginning to get concerned after two familiar people followed him on Twitter this week. And the dynamic duo also discuss Bill Cosby’s new comedy special, Jon Oliver’s plans to leave The Daily Show and what FAST actually stood for.

Who will fill Jon Oliver’s shoes? Does Bill Cosby still have it? How hard will these two morons laugh at their Madlibs? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Hobo Radio 278 – Grandma’s poutine

When Americans think of their neighbors in the Great White North, they tend to picture Canadians as polite, poutine-eating, mild folks. However, Joel Murphy argues that Toronto mayor Rob Ford might finally change that image with his belligerent, crack smoking ways.

Murphy and his co-host Lars also discuss Patrick Stewart’s quirky sense of humor and their tendency to share “entertaining” tidbits while watching movies. Also, for some strange reason, Lars tries to defend people who enjoyed X-men: The Last Stand.

Does Benedict Cumberbatch sound like Jabba the Hut? Is P Stew the best looking bald man in Hollywood? Have you tried grandma’s poutine? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Tryin’ to wrap my head around you” by Mr. & Mrs. Smith
