It’s been a little while since we’ve produced an episode of Bobby Pickles’ Podcast. Primarily, because Bobby is too consumed with his other podcast - Dying Scene Radio. If you haven’t checked it out, you should! But aside from punk rock, Bobby still likes to talk about everything under the sun. On this episode of BPP, Bobby Pickles and lifelong beer buddy, Ben Coletti (along with Coletti’s girlfriend, Jessica Hardy, and a stupidiot named Tone Lo-Ki) conduct a roundtable discussion regarding Bobby’s potential return to Floriduhh but not without fears of alcoholism and losing his edge. Jessica brings up “Rob’s problem” as she kindly puts it. Ben tells what it’s like to date a “black chick” who is culturally un-black. Bobby poses the question: “Why does Coletti look like fucking Tom Hanks in Castaway?” The crew also discusses Coletti’s weird “hair stamp”, and living with Gary Smith in a white trash apartment years ago. They also chat about meeting up with all “the friends” at the “three sisters” brewery during Bobby’s vacation weekend, how great Mewz looks pregnant despite her fondness of chugging beers with a baby in her belly, and what Coletti was saying to Mewz’s kid in her stomach. Coletti compares mentally abusing his girlfriend to Pavlov’s dog. Bobby explains why he hates Feminism by telling a Tinder story. Jessica explains why Men will eventually be obsolete. Tone Lo-Ki can’t help not being anti-Semitic. They talk about how Florida consists of Floridiots, stupidiots and the walking dead. Tone Lo-Ki brings up the Adam/polish face. Bobby explains that Coletti comes from great stock but may die prematurely (just like he was born prematurely) due to chronic Bud Light consumption/sun poisoning. Ben says, “Rob never listens unless he’s ready to understand.” This ridiculous conversation is quite a doozy. Crack open a Bud Light and enjoy!

On this sun-filled episode of BP’s P-cast, Bobby and #FLORIDIOT pals - Ben Coletti, Bob Noxious, Tobia Spinelli and Mateo Gash - sail out in the gulf and along the intracoastal waterways of Madeira Beach, FL, sharing stories and poking fun at each other in glorious fashion. Bobby gets sea sick for the first time in his life - all caught remarkably via GoPro. The crew also stumbles upon a beached vessel, but none of its inhabitants seem to care that their ship is grounded. Nothing but beers, boats and blathering on this Florida “boatcast” edition of BPP, sponsored by FAT ENZO.
Podcasting from Compassionate Care Center of CT (one of the six medical marijuana dispensaries in that state) Bobby, on location in the quaint town of Bethel, talks pot policy, prohibition and the endocannabinoid system with licensed pharmacist/dispensary facility manager, Nicole Liedke. They also discuss opiate addiction, the dirty secret behind why marijuana is illegal in the first place and how my idiot friend, Piazza, managed to attain a legal weed card.
Boston-based punk rock prodigies - BarRoom Heroes - stop by Bobby’s mother’s basement, prior to their gig in Bridgeport, to discuss Irish-ness, Boston-ness and the novelty of youth. While these BarRoom Heroes aren’t the only punks in town, they are the most legitimate rightful heirs to the "BarRoom Heroes" name. Dropkick Murphys have publicly vouched for their awesomeness, plus they’re not German, and in fact, they too hail from Beantown. A segment of the conversation originally aired on LOUD FAST SHITTY 11-17-14.
Podcasting, two days after Halloween, from The Old Oak Street Burial Ground (also known as the “Old and Indian Cemetery”) in Grafton, MA, my cohort, Matthew Piazza, and I, speak with author and old-time consigliere, Roberta Grimes, about her new book “The Fun of Staying in Touch: How Our Loved Ones Contact Us and How We Can Contact Them”. Grimes’ previous work “The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next!” shapes most of our discussion, which spans such topics as, death and the afterlife, Jesus without Christianity, Brittany Maynard and her decision to die with dignity, if Albert Einstein was or was not an atheist, and why Piazza will most likely be reincarnated as a cockroach. Roberta also hosts the talk-radio podcast, Seek Reality with Roberta Grimes, which can be downloaded for free on iTunes.
