Hobo Radio Interview – Peter Diseth from Better Call Saul

Subscribe:

The tragedy of Better Call Saul is that we know going in that our protagonist’s fate is sealed. As much as we may empathize with and root for Jimmy McGill, we know that he is destined to end up being the Saul Goodman we watched in Breaking Bad (and eventually, the Gene Takavic we see glimpses of in Better Call Saul).

But perhaps, if things had gone a different way, Jimmy could have turned out like Bill Oakley, the trans fat loving, “petty with a prior” spouting deputy district attorney that serves as a foil for McGill on BCS.

We explore this alternate universe Jimmy with Peter Diseth, the actor who plays Oakley. We also discuss how he landed the role (which included an awkward bathroom encounter with Bob Odenkirk), what it’s like being a day player on TV shows and how hard it is to eat food take after take in a scene.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk,” “Give It (All Night Long” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “El Sonido de la Vida” by Silva de Alegria

Hobo Radio 438 – Bill Finger

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss the new Hulu documentary Batman & Bill, which focuses on Bill Finger, the writer who co-created Batman with Bob Kane. Finger never received credit in his lifetime for his contributions to the iconic character. The film follows writer Marc Tyler Nobleman on his quest to get Bill Finger the credit he deserves.

They also discuss the late, great Powers Boothe, Lars’ new endorsement deal and Joel’s bizarre complaint about a recent episode of Better Call Saul.

What are the most obscure Star Wars facts that Lars knows? Why does Joel know so much about the history of Diet Dr. Pepper logos? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “waxing waning” by Ketsa
