Bobby Pickles' Podcast™️

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 an atheist or not, 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.
