Hobo Radio 296 – Better than the original

Children of the 80s have been quick to attack Michael Bay’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. They feel it will ruin a once great franchise. However, Joel Murphy is here to set the record straight. According to Murphy, Bay isn’t ruining anything. The original TMNT live-action movies were already terrible.

Murphy and Lars also discuss Matthew McConaughey’s chances of winning an Emmy, David O. Russell’s overrated films and Hall and Oates underrated music.

What era did American Hustle take place in? How many Emmys did The Wire win? What is a ninja turtle without his belt? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Impossible” by The Naxalites
