Hobo Radio 288 – You can’t take the sky from me

What began as a discussion of the 10 best cartoons of all time somehow morphed into a chat about just how underappreciated and brilliant Firefly was. Joel Murphy and Lars wax poetic about the short-lived Joss Whedon show and its follow up movie, Serenity.

They also try to pinpoint where things went wrong with The Family Guy, why South Park doesn’t get the respect it deserves and why Joel is getting copies of Architectural Digest and W sent to his house.

What is W? Why do Germans sound so angry? How should one properly wear a scarf? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Things Are Gonna Get Better” by Smoke Ring Days

Hobo Radio 287 – Crabtree!

This past Sunday, Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman made the game-winning play that secured his team a spot in the Super Bowl. Then, immediately after the game, he did an intense, shouting interview that would have felt at home on a 1980s WWF pay-per-view. The media and average folks on Twitter lost their mind reacting to it.

Joel Murphy and Lars examine people’s reactions to Sherman on this week’s show. They also share the story of a man determined to get Taco Bell during a snowstorm and they play another round of the Netflix Game.

What do white people like? How can you recreate the experience of eating at Taco Bell in your own home? How cool is the band name Dr. Rage and the Uppercuts? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks

022-Haggis?


The Burns Supper is a celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Celebrated on or about the Bard’s birthday, January 25th, they range from formal gatherings of scholars to uproariously informal parties of drunkards and louts. Join us at our Burns Supper as we try to adhere, more or less, to a time honored celebration which includes the eating of a traditional Scottish meal, the drinking of Scotch whisky, and the recitation of works by the ploughman’s poet.

Hobo Radio 286 – The curse of the free Frosty

On recent podcasts, Joel Murphy has talked about his recent efforts to lose weight. Well, all of that is now in jeopardy after Murphy has been cursed … cursed with the gift of a year’s worth of free Frostys from Wendy’s. After donating a dollar to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Murphy was given a keychain entitling him to a Frosty anytime he enters a Wendy’s. Like the fabled monkey’s paw, it’s a gift he wishes he never received.

Murphy and Lars also discuss repetitive online advertising, the proposed Groundhog Day musical and Google’s latest attempt to take over the world.

Can you trust the Google? What new catchphrase will soon be sweeping the nation? Do you want to buy my bass guitar? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

Also, they discuss the latest round of annoying movie talkers Joel encountered, the made up terms weathermen have begun to use and the bizarre phenomenon of “barely legal” teens.
