Othello makes the case that, via their Snapchat accounts, porn stars tend to reveal they're butt awful. Exhibit A.
Papa's Basement Radio Show

While working at WJFK many moons ago, I became good friends with Othello, the producer who worked the shift before me. Through the years, we’ve often talked about doing something – anything – creative together during countless trips to Hooters where we ate away our frustrations with life tot by

Metallica released a new single – its first in I believe eight years (I ain’t looking that shit up to confirm) – the other day. And it rocks. And I couldn’t be happier. It’s been so long since I’ve cared about this band that very few of you know this,

To me, meditation is like Communism: Interesting in theory, Hell in practice. I mean, who can stand to sit in the stink of their own awfulness without chasing it away with your iPhone or booze for more than a few moments? But our own co-hostess Sara somehow is not able

DC Comedy Podcast Penis The Night of HBO
Papa's Basement Radio Show

In news that will shock literally no one that has listened to the Papa’s Basement Show, I have been compulsively watching HBO’s newest program, The Night Of. And, for the most part, it is a relatively straightforward gritty crime thriller. That said, this previous Sunday’s episode (episode five) took what

I got half of my wisdom teeth yanked this week, which I’ve mostly healed up from, but I spent the better part of the last few days sounding like Larry Flynt after he suffered a stroke. The episode discusses the fun of getting my teeth pulled while wide awake because

Well, after eight years, I have finally gotten off my gigantic Greek ass and come up with a way to make a few coins off the Papa’s Basement Show. (Actually, that’s not entirely accurate: Patreon came up with it.) What is Patreon, you may ask? It’s a company that lets

Papa's Basement Radio Show

I’m not really familiar with Leslie Jones. She’s apparently on SNL, and produced this bit of wisdom for the show (which resonates with me as I come to grips with the reality that, with each passing day, my odds of making it as they relate to my age look roughly

Papa's Basement Radio Show

Pokémon Go has arrived, and the world is losing its mind. I am as well, but not because I love the game: I’m a Nintendo nut and knew this game was going to be huge months ago. Did I get off my ass and buy any stock, which has now

Papa's Basement Radio Show

It’s a contentious time in this nation’s history: Pokemon Go has us fighting over PokeGyms and tiny monsters. We are busy either murdering or being murdered by cops. And I wouldn’t trust presumptive nominees of the country’s main political parties to not cheat at a game of Monopoly much less

One of my favorite episodes of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is titled “Dennis Looks Like a Registered Sex Offender.” The episode’s premise is that show protagonist Dennis Reynolds bears a more-than-passing resemblance to Wendell Shorteyes, a recently released child molester who moves into his neighborhood. Dennis grows increasingly exasperated

The other day, I was hanging out with my friend Howard watching Office reruns on Netflix. Because I had been drinking since 2pm and I’ve seen every episode of that show at least four times, I nodded off. About 20 minutes later, I awoke to the same suburban bear trap

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

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
