Hobo Radio 373 – Everything is terrible, the world sucks, but we’re going to talk about pop culture

As a brief tribute to Paris, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk briefly about all the French have given us.

They also try to figure out why it’s so tough for Hollywood to release movies at seasonally-appropriate times (the latest examples being Victor Frankenstein and The Night Before), discuss the cancellation of Kurt Sutter’s Bastard Executioner and look at the recent string of dead-but-presumed-still-alive TV show protagonists.

Are dramas like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and The Leftovers in danger of making death meaningless on their shows? Was Kurt Sutter really the one who pulled the plug on his own show? Why is Lars no longer wearing deodorant? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Into the Ether” by Psychadelik Pedestrian

Hobo Radio 371 – Tina Belcher is my spirit animal

As you can see below, this year for Halloween, Lars Periwinkle went as Tina Belcher. And he quickly found he wasn’t the only Tina in town.

Joel Murphy and Lars both recap their Halloweens. They also discuss our obsession with bleak television shows like The Leftovers and The Walking Dead, spotlight a character actor you should know and question Star Wars’ decision to have officially-licensed apples. They also do another MadLib.

What’s the point of a never-ending zombie apocalypse? Does slapping Darth Vader on apples help sales? Are the guys capable of doing “adult” MadLibs? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “We Were the Stars” by The British IBM
