Joel Murphy and Lars don’t know much about this year’s Academy Awards, but they do know one thing – it could be shaping up to be Matthew McConaughey’s year. They talk about his roles in Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective and predict how likely he is to pull off a double Oscar/Emmy win.
They also go back and review the Academy’s 2004 Best Picture selection, share their thoughts on Taco Bell’s new breakfast menu and introduce their own March Madness tournament, which features the films of Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Harold Ramis.
Would you eat a waffle taco? Has anyone ever won an Emmy and an Academy Award in the same year? Do you know what a fez is? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
This past Sunday, Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman made the game-winning play that secured his team a spot in the Super Bowl. Then, immediately after the game, he did an intense, shouting interview that would have felt at home on a 1980s WWF pay-per-view. The media and average folks on Twitter lost their mind reacting to it.
Joel Murphy and Lars examine people’s reactions to Sherman on this week’s show. They also share the story of a man determined to get Taco Bell during a snowstorm and they play another round of the Netflix Game.
What do white people like? How can you recreate the experience of eating at Taco Bell in your own home? How cool is the band name Dr. Rage and the Uppercuts? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
End – “Incarcerated Mind” by Dr. Rage and the Uppercuts
