Joel Radio #35: Vanilla Gorilla

After last week's doom and gloom, it's back to fun time on Joel Radio! What could be more fun than Tiger Woods' dirty text messages? His porn star ex-lover posted a bunch of them on the web, and Joel has the full list and analysis. Find out how long Tiger's "sessions" last, and what he really likes in bed. Bring a friend to listen, Tiger would! And Jesse James cheats on Sandra Bullock, which proves that a body full of shitty tattoos is better than an Oscar. Also, Joel's (actually Upchuck's) interview with hilarious web video artiste extraordinaire, Scott Gairdner. Scott's not a Juggalo, but might be now. Plus, Joel's brush with "tween" TV fame - look out Zack and Cody!

Joel Radio #34: Drugs, Alcohol, Death, Kitties

To the surprise of almost no one, another child star is dead at a young age. This time it's Corey Haim, who was one of 103 child stars named Corey in the 1980s. Joel examines the phenomenon of why child stars go bad, and how drug-related deaths of celebrities are treated by the media. Follow the long history of excuses and cover-ups to discover the only few "true" drug ODs in history. Its actually sad to hear the same excuses over and over, and not understand why these deaths are actually happening. Later, Joel reviews the 2009 Oscar ceremony. It was boring and, in hindsight, predictable. Joel thinks The Hurt Locker is overrated, and he's got his stats to prove it! Find out the history of War movies at the Oscars, and hear why the "Hurt Locker Ass Kiss Spectacular" will likely go down as a black mark in showbiz history. Plus, the Oscar prognosticators' results are in, and can Joel's cat sleep through an entire show?

Joel Radio #33: Jaw Dropping

It's a huge week at JoelRadio, so let's bring back a (ahem) huge guest in Corey Hall. There's so much to talk about as the Winter Olympics wrap-up, Alice in Wonderland debuts, Jay Leno returns to late-night, and the Oscar race concludes. But the biggest news of the week was the appearance of legendary movie critic Roger Ebert on the Oprah Winfrey show this week. Surviving cancer has left Roger unable to eat, drink or speak, with no lower jaw, lower mouth or tongue. It's a sight more graphic than anything in The Crazies (reviewed this week!), yet sad and inspirational at the same time. In fact, some brainiacs figured out they build Roger a "voice" from his previous DVD commentaries and TV appearances. Thankfully, Corey and Joel's years of podcasting should have them covered in such a tragic event, so whatever genius listening to this (Nils!), get working on it! Also, The Marriage Ref debuts, does Seinfeld strike out? Plus, Shutter Island sucks, the history of Mountain Dew, and the funniest thing ever - the secret life of gay Siskel and Ebert (not true, but really funny).
