Hobo Radio 292 – The year of McConaughey

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 week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Rolling Stone” by Blue Laroy
