August 02, 2011


As of August 2, 2011, new episodes of Joel Radio will not show up on this website. Instead head over to to see the new site and all updated content.

If you are using iTunes or any podcatching program, it is also very important to update the RSS feed for the show so that you can get the new shows automatically. The new feed for the show is:

iTunes is supposed to automatically find the new RSS feed, but it may take up to two weeks, and you may miss a show in the meantime.

While will not be updated, the full archive of past shows and all content from this site is also now available at The new site features the ability to leave comments in the blog entry for each show, which is a feature many of you have asked for. I hope to read and respond to your comments and criticisms there.

So update your bookmarks and let's keep the douchey fun going on!!!

Joel Radio Returns next week

Sorry for taking a few weeks away. I was busy working on some other projects. Really!

The plan is to do a new show the week of June 21st with Corey Hall guesting and featuring a full rundown of the E3 conference, a World Cup update, and we might even see what assholes are currently on Chat Roulette - I know a lot of you liked that segment last time.

Catch you all next week!

No show, but..............

Sadly, Joel is sick, so there won't be a new show this week. The good news is that what Joel got and how he got it is pretty funny and will make for a good story, so tune in next week for that.

Thanks and happy 2010.

No show this week, but listen to this

Due to stand-up related travels, there won't be a new Joel Radio posted this week. However, there is something cool you can listen to, and that is John Tenney's podcast The Oddist. John's got an interview with myself and Harry Artin Berbarian on his most recent show. It's really funny too, with talk of conspiracies, UFOs, online dating and toothless squirrels. Here's a direct link, with Harry and I coming in at the 42:00 minute mark. John was always a great guest on Corey and Joel Radio, so give him the ol' reacharound and listen to The Oddist - you won't regret it.

No show this week, here's why.......

This week, I'm off once again to perform at the Gathering of the Juggalos in southern Illinois. Because I'm leaving early in the week there's no time to produce a show, but if you haven't listened to last week's show with the return of Corey, it's a must-listen, so check that out. That also means no UFC 101 picks with Steve Sabo, but we'll be back at it for UFC 102.

Also, watch the Gathering "infomercial" below. You'll get a feel for what this crazy event is (I'm in the video for a second), and you'll see that I'll have some great stories for next week's show. It's a bit of a viral hit on the web already, too. It's worth the 14 minutes, trust me!

Official 2009 Fan Death Pool Draft Rules

Rules for The Corey and Joel Radio Show Fan Death Pool 2009

- This may seem complicated, but it's really not. We're just trying to make it as close to the Death Pool we do on the show. Here's a link to the Official Fans’ Death Pool list from 2008:

And the 2009 studio draft results:

And to listen to this year’s in-studio draft show here:

- Choose AT LEAST 30 celebrities (a celebrity will be defined below). Rank them in order from 1 - 30 (or however many you choose) based on the order that you feel they are most likely to die, with #1 being the most likely. You should choose at least 30 but can include more if you want, but please no more than 1 full typed page. You MUST assign everyone a rank to every celebrity that is on your list. The number of players on your final official list (as determined by the draft) will be 20 or possibly lower depending on how many people enter. You need not list the ages of the celebrities, we will look that up for you. IF YOU ENTERED IN 2008 YOU MAY KEEP UP TO THREE NAMES FROM LAST YEAR’S LIST. Just list them in the top 3 spots on your list and put an asterisk (*) next to their name to indicate a keeper pick. You can keep only 1 or 2 names if you want as well. You will forgo an opening round of the draft for every keeper you keep. Therefore if you keep 3 names your first “new” pick will be in round four.

- A celebrity, for our purposes, will be someone who's death will be reported as news on a national level in the United States. This disqualifies anyone famous elsewhere, like foreign heads of state,
unless they're famous worldwide like Tony Blair, Putin, etc. This would also disqualify most foreign sports stars, actors, singers, and TV personalities who are not famous in the US. You MAY NOT choose anyone who is sentenced to or awaiting execution. You may choose those who are wanted dead, but not captured like Osama bin Laden. Prisoners sentenced to life in prison are acceptable picks such as Charles Manson or Scott Peterson. Celebrities' spouses, parents and children are generally not acceptable as celebs, unless they're famous on their own like Dana Reeve or Earl Woods.

- We will randomly draw names to select the draft order. If you are first, then you guarantee that you get the 1st name on your list. If, for example, 2 people pick Dick Clark as their #1 choice, the person
drafting first gets Dick Clark and the second person would get their #2 pick (or whomever is the next available). No two players will have the same celebrity on their final list (as determined by the draft), so this why ranking is very important!

- The points system is subtracting the celebrity's age at their death from 100. For example, Gerald Ford was 93 at hit his death (in 2006), 100-93=7, so Ford netted Corey 7 points. The highest point total at the end of the year wins. In the event of a tie, there will be co-winners. It is too hard to agree on a tie-breaker - youngest death? Number of deaths? Highest draft picks?

- Send you entries in to us at the regular email address of If you want to send in your list as an attachment, that is OK but please use a .txt format.

- Send your entries in NO LATER than noon EST on January 14, 2009. No celebrity death will be counted in the fan Death Pool unless it occurs after January 14th 2009. We know some people may die before January 14th, but that's the only fair way to do it.

- You may pick celebrity on any of our lists on the show from any year we've done it, or even after you hear the 09 show.

- The contest is open to anyone in the world that wants to play, not necessarily our fans or mailing list subscribers. So yeah, your mom can play or friends at the office or whatever.

- The prize for first place is fuck all except bragging rights, tons of mentions on the show, and who knows what else.

- Make sure to include your name and email addy on the list itself, too! Here's brief sample list:

Joel Fragomeni's (
Death Pool list:

1. Dick Clark
2. Osama bin Laden
3. Jerry Lewis
4. Larry King
5. Mike Tyson
6. Nancy Reagan
30. 50 Cent

- That's about it

Any other questions, let us know!

Happy morbid New Year and thanks for listening,

Corey and Joel

The short version of show #57

While we try to make each show so that it will fit onto a CD we couldn't stop talking this time. Therefore, we created a special "Short" version of the show. We cut it from 88 minutes to 79 minutes by removing the break song, and then changing the "tempo" of the file in Audacity. Basically, it's playing back 6% faster, but it is pitched down so the voices sound "normal". You don't lose any of the converasation this way. It's not perfect, but if you MUST make a CD, then click here to download.

If you're not making a CD and just playing on the computer or on an iPod then just use the regular file here. Thanks.

The original Death Pool show for 2007

Here's the link for the attempted-to-be-restored Death Pool show. It's probably worse in the beginning than the middle or near the end, so skip around and you might just enjoy it. There's no way we could release it like this, hence the replacement show, but we know some of you want to give it a shot so here it is:
