Hobo Radio Interview – Fishbowl directors Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa Kinigopoulos

From David and Jerry Zucker to Lana and Lilly Wachowski to Joel and Ethan Cohen, Hollywood has had a long and storied tradition of talented sibling directing teams.

Following in that tradition are Stephen and Alexa Kinigopoulos, two Maryland filmmakers whose film Fishbowl looks at teenage life in a small town. Set in the fictional Bishop, Maryland, the film tells the story of three sisters navigating life without their mother and with a father who has becoming increasingly obsessed with the apocalypse.

This week, we talk to the duo about Fishbowl, their favorite films of all time and their mentor George Pelecanos.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “Big Fish” by Cambriana

Hobo Radio 326 – Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Bob from The Walking Dead and D’Angelo Barksdale from The Wire may not seem that similar on paper, but both characters have a vulnerability and a tragic quality that gets you instantly invested in them, even as you fear for the worst. That’s because they are both played by the charming and talented Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Gilliard joins Joel Murphy and Lars to discuss acting, producing his own shows and his newfound passion, improv.

What was it like for the accomplished actor to take an Intro to Improv class? How does it feel to see The Wire finally get the recognition it always deserved? Will Gilliard ever get to finish his sandwich? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “The Ring” and “Butterfly Lament” by Peacock Ball
  • End – “Re: Your Brains” by Jonathan Coulton

Hobo Radio 258 – They’re single, ladies



If you have ever found yourself wondering why Joel Murphy and Lars are still single, no show has epitomized why the dynamic duo continue to live the bachelor life more than this week’s. They start by talking about their struggles with dating and their need to lose weight, then spend the rest of the time kvetching about the Writer’s Guild of America’s Top 101 Television Shows.

From skipping multivitamins to eating crap food, they continue to make bad choices with what they put into their bodies. And they continue to make bad choices in their romantic lives. But none of their choices are as bad as the WGAs television show rankings.

What’s the worst date Joel has ever been on? How does Lars really feel about Six Feet Under? Why does The Wire continue to be undervalued? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Walk On By” by Robin McKelle
