Disgraced former New England Patriot and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in his cell last week, the timing of which was odd for a variety of reasons. Despite serving time for one murder, he had actually just beaten a double murder wrap, and was poised to fight his previous

Chris Lingebach (1987-2017) was an immense comedic talent cut down far before his time. He was also, more importantly, a good friend. A friend who happened to suffer from high anxiety. You see, Chris Lingebach is taking a vacation to Mexico this Wednesday. And, while he isn’t certain how he’s

It’s always a great day in the Papa’s Basement studios (which, ironically, is not located in a basement) when companies send us innovative and fun products to give away to the listeners (or keep, if my fingers are feeling especially sticky). This week we have not one, not four, but

Have you ever seen a really attractive homeless person? I mean exceptionally beautiful, to the point your jaw dropped? Well, on the way in to record this episode, I did. The woman in question looked like a young Jessica Simpson (and couldn’t be any dumber, so bonus) and it left

I watch a lot of movies. That’s what happens when you have HBO GO, Netflix and Amazon Prime coupled with no wife and kids and a job that lets you make your own hours. And, after having churned through so many movies since the inception of film streaming, I can

(Forgive the sometimes-shoddy audio quality of this episode: We experimented with a new audio setup and are still ironing out the kinks.) Leave it to Othman to bring something new and weird to our attention. In this case, it’s a site called “Porn Wikileaks” that, horribly, spills the personal info

I’m not a driven man. At least, when it comes to productive things. (When it comes to powering through a Netflix series in 48 hours or beating a massive video game over a three-day weekend, I’m your man.) Pete, the show’s co-host and a much more driven man, gives me

Tom Gavin DC Comedy
Papa's Basement Radio Show

For those of you that grew up listening to DC radio (and, specifically, the Don and Mike Show), Tom Gavin was a gem. A special-needs caller, he would live to get on-air, often derailing shows in a hilarious way once there. On top of that, Tom hosted a show at

I watched Sunday’s Golden Globes. (Not because I’m gay, but because I live with my mom. Please, get it right. I have a reputation to uphold!) The highlight of it was undoubtedly Meryl Streep, during her acceptance for the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, calling out Donald Trump for

I’m a huge Nintendo fan. Have been since I was a kid. That’s what happens when you’re sold propaganda at a young age: It sticks. So, when the NES Classic was announced for this Christmas season, I knew I had to have one. I finally managed to score one, but

I have talked, on and off, about performing stand-up comedy since I was 20. For whatever reason (my theory is I’m both unmotivated and a gigantic pussy), I never did so until recently. Yes, I, Pete Maybe and Othman Bouchareb, your favorite podcast hosts, signed up for the DC Improv’s

In the wake of a presidential election that left both sides feeling drained and shocked, it can be difficult making sense of what happened. Feelings to sort out. New realities to adjust to. Futures to brace for. Presented with as little partisanship as possible is the latest episode of Papa’s
