Hobo Radio Interview – Remembering Michael K. Williams

When HoboTrashcan.com launched on August 23, 2005, it included an interview with Michael K. Williams. That interview, which was in-depth and candid, set the tone for every interview to come.

Joel Murphy recently opened up on Twitter to talk about why that moment was so special:

He and Lars talk more about the interview and Williams’ career in general on this special episode of Hobo Radio. They also share the audio from the second interview Murphy conducted with Michael K. Williams in 2006.

[You can find the original print versions of our two interviews here and here.]

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “Please Don’t Say Goodbye” by Tony Benn

Hobo Radio Interview – Joel Soisson

From producing Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure to writing a MadLibs-style script using preexisting Skeet Ulrich footage, Joel Soisson has done it all in Hollywood.

After years of making a living writing horror sequels like Hellraiser: Hellword and Children of the Corn: Runaway, he’s written and directed something completely different: My Best Worst Adventure; the story of an American teen sent to live with her grandmother in Thailand.

We were delighted to sit down and chat with this brilliant filmmaker respected and revered by millions (and we promise we’re not just saying that so that he can pull the quote for his Wikipedia page).

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “Trapped” by Bumy Goldson

Hobo Radio Interview – Top Chef’s Jamie Tran

The past year has been an incredibly difficult one for restaurant owners. Many have struggled to stay open and to stay financially solvent during a global pandemic.

This struggle is front and center in season 18 of Bravo’s Top Chef. It was also the motivating factor for Jamie Tran, chef and owner of Las Vegas’ The Black Sheep, to compete on the show.

We talked to Jamie about her path to becoming a chef, her restaurant’s struggles during Covid and what it’s like competing on Top Chef.

This week’s music:
