Hobo Radio 496 – He created Spider-man

Subscribe:


This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle remember the late, great Stan Lee. Lee, and his body of work, have been frequent topics of discussion on this show over the years, so they do their best to remember Stan and his (somewhat complicated) legacy.

They also discuss the bizarre new movie that they will both be buying tickets for, Detective Pikachu.

How did Detective Pikachu get green-lit? Why was Stan Lee such a lovable conman? Who created Spider-man? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “S70s Comic Interlude Pt.2” by The Duo

Hobo Radio 411 – Busting Mythbusters

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle debut a new segment: “The ocean is terrifying.” They have two stories are terrors lurking below the waters – one about a brain-eating parasite and another about how dolphins can talk.

Lars also tells a hilarious story involving a scandalous photo and the boys bust Mythbusters.

Will we ever have meaningful conversations with dolphins? Would you watch a movie featuring a younger, crime-fighting Stan Lee? Why does Joel and Lars’ old landlord own a bow and arrow? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks

Hobo Radio 260 – Act One: Accent Mark

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.
