Hobo Radio 291 – A six-percent absorption threshold

With the Winter Olympics currently underway in Sochi, we’ve been hearing a lot of horror stories coming out of Russia. But one thing you may not have heard about is their recent ban on lace panties. Joining together with Kazakhstan and Belarus, Russia is seeking to clear its shelves of any undergarments that fall below a six-percent absorption threshold.

In addition to this confounding new law, Joel Murphy and Lars discuss The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer and Marvel’s current film superiority over DC.

Why are men so insistent on telling women what to wear? Can Lars name 10 DC comic superheroes? What exactly is a six-percent absorption threshold? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Dr. Goodfoot” by Hulon
