Hobo Radio 496 – He created Spider-man

Subscribe:


This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle remember the late, great Stan Lee. Lee, and his body of work, have been frequent topics of discussion on this show over the years, so they do their best to remember Stan and his (somewhat complicated) legacy.

They also discuss the bizarre new movie that they will both be buying tickets for, Detective Pikachu.

How did Detective Pikachu get green-lit? Why was Stan Lee such a lovable conman? Who created Spider-man? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “S70s Comic Interlude Pt.2” by The Duo

Hobo Radio 494 – The Quest for Eywa

Subscribe:


This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss the recently-announced titles for James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels and Ridley Scott’s plans for a Gladiator sequel. (They also discuss the original, truly-insane pitch for a Gladiator sequel written by Nick Cave.)

They also delve into some theology, Daredevil season three and the lighting of all prestige dramas.

Why is the Golden Age of TV so poorly lit? Why is Joel turning into Howard Hughes? Do we only elect Presidents that it is fun to do impressions of? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Selfish” by Derek Clegg

Hobo Radio Interview – Lane Moore, How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don’t

Subscribe:


There’s a contradiction at the core of Lane Moore’s new memoir, How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don’t. The book bills itself as a guide to navigating solitude. However, Moore’s heartfelt, intimate writing places you so deeply into her world that you feel profoundly connected to her. Her musings on solitude feel like a conversation you’re having over drinks with a dear friend, which inevitably makes you feel less alone in the world.

We recently talked to Moore about the process of writing the book, how she’s been coping emotionally with some of the heavier subject matter and her plans to write a Will Smith-esque theme song for the inevitable film adaptation.
