Hobo Radio 304 – Stand down

Lars Periwinkle is a lover, not a fighter. But a man can only be pushed so far before he has to take a stand. And even Lars is not above throwing down in a liquor store parking lot … for justice. Lars explains how he ended up punching another man on the face on this week’s show.

And Periwinkle and Joel Murphy also discuss X-Men: Days of Future Past, Adam Sandler’s crumbling movie career and the time Joel confronted the playground bully.

How did Lars do in his epic liquor store brawl? Is Adam Sandler Krusty the Clown? How long can Joel and Lars keep up their X-Men bit? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Karma” by How Dare You Alexis

Hobo Radio 303 – Allons–y

This week, HoboTrashcan’s food blogger Fontina Turner joins Joel Murphy and Lars in studio (a.k.a. an undisclosed basement).

They discuss Channing Tatum being cast as Gambit, Fontina’s creative process and Adam Scott’s adorableness. And, because he can’t help himself, Joel continues to attack Fontina’s home city of Philadelphia.

Why does Channing Tatum ruin everything? Why is Hobo Radio making Gene Wilder merch? Is anything better than a Doctor Who tramp stamp? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Mona Lisa” by Shelia E.

Some are edible mushrooms, deadly mushrooms, glow in the dark mushrooms and many beautiful and strange. Our guest today is Danamae Scarborough. She helps guide us through this magic journey among the mushroom patch.

Hobo Radio 302 – NBC Brittas Community

We are truly in the darkest timeline, my friends. After it appeared like a forgone conclusion that Community would somehow get its six season and a movie, NBC inexplicably canceled it.

Joel Murphy and Lars mourn the loss of the brilliant show and call NBC out for their mistake. They also discuss the way being President ages you and Baltimore’s inability to do anything right.

Why is NBC so awful? Why does Joel have a family photo of the Obamas? What is an oil miner? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
