Hobo Radio 357 – Mama Celeste’s box

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle recap this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, including the surprise Star Wars concert, Vulture’s unfair attack on Steven Moffat and Fox’s second attempt at a Deadpool movie. They also try to figure out why you can’t simply stream all of the Comic-Con panels and trailers online.

They also explain the correct way to eat Mama Celeste pizzas, the brilliance of 90s superhero cartoons and the key to good improv.

Why won’t movie studios take our money? What schadenfreude happened to Kevin Smith? Who is Korean Jesus? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Back to Me” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Wondering Why (Featuring Nate Mezmer and Janice Bailon)” by ETHX

Hobo Radio 317 – The monkeys and the bees

A watch that track your heart rate, access your bank records, find your car and break into your house may sound like something out of a science fiction/horror film, but Apple is nonetheless hoping you’ll want to pay $350 for it.

Joel Murphy and Lars share their thoughts on Apple’s new iPhones and smart watch. They also discuss the Baltimore Comic-Con, old people sex and a new Indiegogo campaign aimed at bringing back hand-drawn animation.

Why is Mark Hamill in better shape than Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew? Who was the biggest jerk at Comic-Con? Does Joel look any better this week? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Morningstar” by Miky Anton

Hobo Radio 263 – Don’t make ‘em special

Over the past 263 shows, Joel Murphy and Lars have learned a trick to make the podcasts entertaining: don’t make ‘em special.

This week, it’s another run of the mill Hobo Radio chat covering a wide range of topics. The boys discuss Christopher Robin’s various psychoses on display in Winnie the Pooh, the unreliability of historical records and the misuse of the phrase “based on a true story.” If that wasn’t enough, they also play another round of the Netflix game and come up with a genius solution for how to make Comic-Con accessible to everyone.

Should Christopher Robin be in a mental facility? Is Bubblegum Samurai a real movie? What is Lars’ new catchphrase? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
