Hobo Radio 420 – What are we even talking about anymore?

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle cover a wide range of topics this week, including the most recent 2016 celebrity deaths, men’s facial hair, Gilmore Girls, TV shows with planned endings, Doctor Who and GMOs.

This eclectic mix of subjects causes Lars Periwinkle to question the nature of Hobo Radio. He even makes a bold offer for anyone who attends their live podcast recording on Dec. 31 in Baltimore to potentially change the show going forward.

What is the point of Hobo Radio? Why do TV show writers insist on having their characters write about the show they are in? Is Lars relatable? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “A Flower In Space” by Starover Blue

We have recorded episodes about several alcohols and their mixers but have, until this moment, largely ignored a cocktail staple, bitters. Bitter herbs have been used medicinally for centuries but have had a bit of a roller coaster ride in the last 200 years. They became extremely popular during the 1800’s with the advent of cocktail parties, to virtually disappearing with America’s prohibition period. Although a few have stood steadfast in that time many new bitter making companies are popping up. Sometimes what you need is that old-timey flavor in today’s day and age. So don’t be bitter, just try some in your next cocktail.
