If blizzard naming convention works like hurricane naming convention, this bad boy could be right around the corner.
Papa's Basement Radio Show

We start with a tribute to Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire, who died right before the recording. If you’re expecting anything in-depth, don’t: I’m a honkey in my mid-30s, meaning I can name three EW+F songs and have banged to none of them. But we do our best.

The start of 2016 has been a bloodbath for interesting artists. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey, Jon Lovitz…it’s just all been bad news. Co-hostess Butters and I cover what we thought of each (passing judgment from our mighty tower of podcast triumph) and I also give my thoughts on

Looks and brains? Someone's going around with nothing, because Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey got it all.

Can you imagine if Making a Murderer was an investigation into the death of Lemmy Kilmister? Now THAT’S entertainment! Alas, the two articles in the title are unrelated, meaning we first mourn the passing of one of rock’s great singers, then get to our latest Netflix addiction: Making a Murderer

Adam Driver of Girls fame is in the new Star Wars movie The Force Awakens. I hope he has facial hair in it, because, without it, he looks like every dude that ever shot up a school.

Unlike every other suburban white kid, I wasn’t raised to worship Star Wars. Which means, despite my paunch, beard and glasses, I don’t really give much of a shit about the release of The Force Awakens. Co-host Pete Maybe tries to tell me I’m an idiot for this, and we

E. Honda VS. Balrog: Round 1! Fight!
Papa's Basement Radio Show

Last week, Amy Schumer took a photo for the Pirelli Magazine that couldn’t be more unflattering if it tried. Tons of people (our dear co-host Butters included) have praised it as brave and beautiful. And, while I agree it’s brave to put out a horrid photo of oneself, when it

This is what radio has become. Forget gun violence: This is the true symptom of America's policy failures.
Papa's Basement Radio Show

Terrestrial radio fucking sucks. That sentence both random and vulgar without context, so permit me to elaborate: There was a time I loved radio. As a kid, my local “guy talk” station, WJFK, started my day with Howard Stern and gave me Don & Mike in the afternoon. It was

To be fair, if I saw this guy and his unironic Joe Dirt hair and had a suicide vest on me, I might also be inclined to tug on the cord.

We recorded this almost two weeks ago, so I remember very little of the content. It was a jumble of thoughts after the terrorist attacks in France and a meditation on religious beliefs, radical or otherwise, in general. It probably sounds as dated as a fucking Fat Boys record because

Here is the tall, muscular, white male wearing high-tech armor who's the protagonist of Black Ops 3. He's very different from the tall muscular white guys that are the stars of Gears of War, Halo, Destiny and every other game for the PS4/XBOX One that is exactly alike.

For those of you that don’t play video games whatsoever and find even their mention disgusting, don’t worry: The title of this show is due to a ten minute rant toward the end of the show. You can enjoy the rest just fine. We discuss the new Star Wars trailer.

I tell the tale of how a white guy (with racially-ambiguous hair) goes about picking an ethnic barbershop after receiving an awful haircut that left me feeling like a freshly shaven slut. We also make the case that wearing a cool costume on Halloween is the one way a guy

Papa's Basement Radio Show

Usually, the heavily lifting of the show’s humiliation-for-laughs theme is done by yours truly. But, I have to give it up to co-host Pete this week, he really took one for the team by revealing that he starred in a lower-than-B grade horror film. We watch and mock, and I
