Hobo Radio 327 – Halloween Spooktacular 2014

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are joined by special guest Molly (or is it Polly?) to celebrate Halloween.

Of course, the whole thing devolves into a discussion of their greatest fears and the ways their mothers have scarred them for life.

What scares Joel and Lars? What sage warning did Molly’s mom have for her after seeing a memorable photo? Who ruined Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.’s Black Panther party? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • End – “Halloween” by The Coffinshakers

044-Absinthe?


Absinthe make the mind wander. Some call it the Green Fairy. Some call it a Devil in a Bottle. We call it very refreshing.

Today for the end of the Halloween season we dive into the green world of Absinthe. The ban has been lifted on absinthe after a century and we couldn’t be happier. We try several cocktails including the Sazerac, a Corpse Reviver #2 and a Slow Death in the Afternoon. Of course we also try it straight and the traditional drip method. We gave the Bohemian method a try by lighting it on fire to not the greatest effect.

We want to thank our friend Mike for corrupting this episode with us! Check out his blog Dust & Corruption here.

Hobo Radio 326 – Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Bob from The Walking Dead and D’Angelo Barksdale from The Wire may not seem that similar on paper, but both characters have a vulnerability and a tragic quality that gets you instantly invested in them, even as you fear for the worst. That’s because they are both played by the charming and talented Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Gilliard joins Joel Murphy and Lars to discuss acting, producing his own shows and his newfound passion, improv.

What was it like for the accomplished actor to take an Intro to Improv class? How does it feel to see The Wire finally get the recognition it always deserved? Will Gilliard ever get to finish his sandwich? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “The Ring” and “Butterfly Lament” by Peacock Ball
  • End – “Re: Your Brains” by Jonathan Coulton
