Hobo Radio 306 – Hurricane Zoinks

A recent study found that female-named hurricanes claim more lives than male-named hurricanes “because people don’t respect them.” This week, Joel Murphy and Lars discuss the survey, which Lars is rather dubious about.

They also discuss Calvin and Hobbes‘ creator Bill Waterson’s surprising return to comics, the strange power dynamics on Scooby Doo and Tracy Morgan’s car accident.

Why does Michael Jordan think he can rock a Hitler mustache? What would you say to Bill Murray if you saw him on the street? Who would win in a debate between President Obama and Jeff Goldblum? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Root to Seed” by Thoughtsarizen


Hobo Radio 257 – Grey DeLisle

Many people hear voices in their heads, but most people don’t put those voices to good use. However, Grey DeLisle, who says she has an entire theatre company rolling around inside her brain, has used those memorable voices to have one of the most accomplished voice acting careers of anyone working today.

From Daphne Blake in Scooby-Doo: Mystery Inc. to Azula in Avatar: The Last Airbender to Catwoman in Batman: Arkham City, DeLisle has carved out an impressive and eclectic career making animated characters come to life. In this hour-long chat, we talk to DeLisle about her humble beginnings as a singing telegram and a lackluster stand up comedian to her rise to one of the top names in voice acting.
