Hobo Radio 112 – The Year of Shits Money
We can all agree that 2009 was an awful year. Countless beloved celebrities died, the economy continued to struggle and once scandal-free celebrities like David Letterman and Tiger Woods were revealed to be horny sleazebags. What was dubbed “The Year of Lars Periwinkle” by Joel Murphy and Lars back in January turned out to be a year we would all soon like to forget.
Luckily, we are just a few hours away from a brand new year. A clean slate. A fresh start filled with hope and optimism. In short, we are headed into The Year of Shits Money.
Who is Shits Money? Did Lars follow through on last year’s New Year’s Resolution? Would Al Pacino make a good Wonder Woman? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

In 2007, we talked to Krinsky about his role on Chuck, the writers’ strike and how to deal with hecklers. If you missed it then, enjoy it now.
