This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are joined by fellow Thunder Grunt podcasters Bob Rose and Matt Pie, the hosts of Bonus Disc.
The gang spends the first half of the show breaking down a YouTube video where a guy attempts to send back buffalo wings at a Burger King. From there, they discuss 4Chan, the underrated Josie and the Pussycats and Wes Craven’s career.
Who was the villain of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? Can you really get all of your news from 4Chan? Are Lars and Matt going to fight? 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 – “Requiem for a Fish” by The Freak Fandango Orchestra

Joel Murphy and Lars show just how well balanced Hobo Radio can be by segueing seamlessly from an in-depth discussion of the Fast and the Furious franchise into a discussion of This American Life and its frequent contributor David Sedaris. There truly is something for everyone on this week’s show.
They also dissect Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which they believe was written by out of touch adults who didn’t understand the teenagers they were writing for, and they share their thoughts on the late, great James Gandolifini and the legacy he leaves behind.
Does anybody actually like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? Is there anything Walmart could do to make its customers boycott them? Is there anything more adorable than the mental image of Nelson Mandela and Stan Lee sharing a pair of headphones? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
