Papa's Basement Radio Show

Over the weekend, tape leaked of Donald Trump bragging to innocent eunuch Billy Bush that he would walk up to women and grab them by the pussy. And, to be honest, I hated it. Not because I’m a good human being, but fuck him for being born with a silver

Last year’s OJ-fest combined with this year’s deluge of programs exploring the JonBenét Ramsey case made me realize something: we are now, as a nation, nostalgic about murders. Is it a cheap ratings grab, or is it truly an odd way we use to remind ourselves of the good old

Let’s be honest: Improv class is a lot like Alcoholics Anonymous. You’re in a room with a bunch of other tortured souls you only know on a first name basis because your life isn’t where you want to be and something needs to change before you wind up dead. That’s

(We have picked a name for uncensored the Pete, Othello, Papa show. POPcast. Tada.) The show begins with Othello revealing he has tried Arby’s new gyro (listen to the show to get his take) before exploring a bias against the chain from a very unlikely source: The Simpsons. And I’ll

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.
