Hobo Radio 375 – Molly’s medical treatment

Molly Regan can often be heard in the background of Hobo Radio episodes, giggling at Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle’s shenanigans. This week, she’s a proper guest, joining the guys for the entire show.

Unfortunately, it isn’t for the best of reasons. Molly has been dealing with a number of health problems, which resulted in two trips to the ER in the past week. She was admitted the second time, spending two days in the hospital after a migraine left her with facial paralysis. Molly catches everyone else up on the details and talks about the GoFundMe campaign she’s started to help with her medical expenses.

Does Molly have Three Stooges syndrome? Why are all of the doctors and nurses at GBMC so dreamy? Did Lars get pegged? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
