Hobo Radio 338 – Not quite Batman

Last year, David Tennant received Joel Murphy’s endorsement to be Batman … which is not an easy thing to get. And clearly that seal of approval has paid off, since Marvel has announced that Tennant will be playing a villain named Zebediah Killgrave in their Netflix show A.K.A. Jessica Jones. It’s not quite Batman, but it is his first foray into the superhero genre.

Murphy and his co-host Lars Periwinkle discuss Tennant’s role as the pheromone-wielding Purple Man. They also discuss their Burns’ Supper with the guys from The Curioso, the recent criticism of American Sniper and James Patterson’s exploding novel Private Vegas.

Did Lars keep it together at the Burns’ Supper? What does Lars’ apartment look like? Why are the guys doing British accents? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Hold On” by Aly Jados

050-Icewine?


Icewine or in Germany Eiswein is a specialty desert wine of extraordinary character. It is categorized as a desert wine because of its sweet taste. Icewine needs to be made late past the harvest season when the grapes freeze on the vine. Typically the grapes are harvested in subzero temperatures in the early morning hours. The grapes also need to be pressed while frozen to ensure only the sweetest nectar of the berries are used. We talk about icewine and taste a little of this amazing treat on today’s Curioso.

Hobo Radio 337 – Everything isn’t awesome

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss this year’s Academy Award nominations (and, in a very meta preamble, they discuss the pointlessness of these awards). They share their thoughts on those films and people nominated and talk about the most notable snubs – including the brilliant Lego Movie.

They also drink Christopher Scarborough’s cider, talk about a service that sends your enemies glitter and do another MadLibs.

What New Year’s Resolutions does Lars have for Joel? Why won’t Sony just make a deal with Disney to coproduce Spider-man movies? How many ciders will Joel have? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “One Lone Crone” by Boxing Time
