It isn’t often you get to meet your heroes. And, if you do, sometimes the circumstances stink, like Muhammad Ali pounding the shit out of a young, impressionable George Foreman in Kinshasa so many years ago. But, once in a rare instance, when the Almighty pauses to shotgun another cosmically

DC Comedy Podcast Remembering Orlando
Papa's Basement Radio Show

After all that happened in Orlando on Sunday at Pulse Nightclub, there wasn’t much else to talk about this week. Well, except for Christina Grimmie, a singer from the Voice, getting shot and killed in Orlando. And a toddler getting eaten by an alligator. In Orlando. Clearly, Orlando is Spanish

Papa's Basement Radio Show

Sure, the world would have you believe that the greatest passing in the world of combat sport this week was Muhammad Ali. But we all know the truth: MMA start Kimbo Slice pushing up daisies at the age of 42 is the real heartbreaker. From his humble beginnings as an

Thank you, Internet, for exposing those who are wisest among us to all sorts of situations they wouldn’t have encountered in their day-to-day lives so that they might tell us all how they, in their infinite wisdom, would have handled said situation. Before you, people could just blab about what

SiriusXM is the teets and I miss having it in my car dearly. So it was a great joy when I stole my roomie’s satellite radio-equipped vehicle this week and got to listen to actual music on the radio, eventually settling on a Motown station or soul station or whatever

Doctors (specifically, a doctor named Dicken Ko, so ha) have performed the first American penis transplant. On the surface, this is great news. Thomas Manning, the peen-cipient, can live a normal life after losing his birthcock to cancer. Soldiers whose dicks blew up like a prank cigar in the face

We all remember Tila Tequila, right? She was famous in the mid-to-late 2000s for being a tiny Asian with huge, fake tits (it doesn’t take much to get ahead in this country of ours). I think she had an MTV show where she dated both guys and girls to find

Let’s be honest: Motivating yourself to go to the gym is hard. This isn’t 1974. You can be a 400-pound blob and, between “adult” Internet content, Netflix, video games and Chipotle, you don’t really need to be in shape enough for a partner or able to use stairs without sweating

Co-host Pete lives about 350 yards from the West Virginia border. And West Virginia, compared to Virginia, has a very vice-laden vibe. To say nothing of its vibrant (if underground) meth and opioid smuggling industries, there are strip clubs all over the place (whether you want to see what’s inside

In the hunt to create more content for the site, it dawned on me and Pete that we spend a lot of time in the car yapping. From driving back and forth to the station we record the show at to running over Hungarians for sport, much of our time

Yesterday started with the passing of Chyna. She seemed like a very tragic case who was mistreated big time by her former employer, the WWE, and ended up getting piped up the pooper on camera (a reference to both her film, Backdoor to Chyna and having to spend time on

Vince Neil Nic Cage Fight
EntertainmentPapa's Basement Radio Show

Last week, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil got into a fight with Nic Cage. It’s the kind of shit the Internet eats up, at least until the next thing to hold our shattered attention spans arrives six hours later. Growing up a fan of “the Crüe” (did my insistence on

The stars of every woman's dream four-way. I'm going to level with you: The fact that Rip Torn, whose BAC is permanently around .18, outlived Shandling makes me wonder if he has some Keith Richards in him.

  First things first, Shawn F. visiting the show and Garry Shandling passing away are unrelated: I simply wanted to include both elements of the show in the title. It’s not like the man entering our studio was the fulfillment of some ancient Indian curse that doomed poor GS. For

Thanks to the Wu-Tang Clan, I was expecting way more muggings upon landing on their home base, Staten Island. Yet I left with my wallet intact. Viva gentrification!
Papa's Basement Radio Show

Co-host Pete and I pay a visit to Staten Island, aka Shaolin Land, home to the famed Wu-Tang Clan. And, with any visit to Staten, comes multiple trips on the Staten Island Ferry (coincidentally, a nickname I derisively called Pete for the entirety of the trip), which is a free,

He was like a Brando that could throw a punch. The Muscles from Brussels. We tried to use the terror attacks in Brussels to remember the great things about that city. Since we are uncultured dolts, our list began and ended with Jean-Claude Van Damme, aka The Muscles From Brussels.
