040 World Cup Olé (Part 1)

The World Cup is upon us!  Although we are morally torn by the way FIFA economically ravages the countries that it enters and by the way Brazil is putting its people on the back burner for a temporary event, we are excited for the soccer portion of the event.  Join me and Sheets as we talk World Cup and Soccer as we prepare to do a weekly series during the Cup!  I’m a novice of the game so it makes it all the more interesting!  If you’re not a soccer fan, no worries.  Regular episodes of Lopez Radio will still be occurring this month as well!

039 Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife

In which Lopez is joined by long time friend and high school classmate, Zach.  A Marine Veteran and deep thinker, Zach made this a really fun and thoughtful episode.  We took a gander back at our high school days and old stomping grounds, talked about the Bowe Bergdhal controversy that has eclipsed the V.A. mistreatment story within a week, and how the Slender Man killings have shown the world that young males aren’t the only thing to fear when it comes to youthful violence.  Those are just a few of the topics.  I hope you guys enjoy episode 38!  See you next week.

038 The Original Giant Three

It’s a full on Giant Show version of Lopez Radio!  Giant Brian returns and Shaffee joins us for the first time on the podcast.  Collectively, the original Giant Show line up is reunited for the first time in 5 or 6 (?) years, maybe longer.  This was a fun episode filled with a lot of stories and reminiscing.  We fight through some technical difficulties but it all seems to be right for this bunch.  Treat this as more of a candid conversation than a normal podcast episode.

037 Something’s [not] In The Air

Fagan joins me to talk about a myriad of things in episode 37 like my last days on morning radio here in Athens, censorship and taking risks, the heartwarming Levar Burt/Reading Rainbow crowd sourcing phenomenon, more Xmen and movie talk, and finally the conversation that the Santa Barbra shooting got the internet buzzing about.  Join us and hit the links below!

034 The Whole ‘Donald’ Situation

Jarrod Miller and Krista join me to discuss Donald Sterling and his racist history and what it could mean for the NBA.  We also discuss the new gun law passed by Georgia governor Nathan Deal and what that may or may not mean to the bar scene here in town.  I’ll post some links below but remember to visit Jarrod at his bar, Jerzees, in downtown Athens, GA and support the comedy scene in Athens by stopping by Jerzees on May13th and every other Tuesday after that for Comedy Night.

Keep up with upcoming events at Jerzees on their Facebook page.

On a lighter note, one man’s quest to make a sex toy for men (discussed at the end of the podcast).

033 Sleep Deprived Opinions

Not quite sure how sleep deprivation affects my podcasting abilities but even though we are both pretty tired, Krista joins me for another podcast that spans the topics of why herpes ads are popping up on Facebook, the bullshit that resides in your friend list and news feed, minimum wage, and a few other bits that we found over the course of this week.  Fagan joins us a little way through the podcast to further our knowledge on income inequality and net neutrality.

032 The Giant Cast (Almost)

This was a fun walk down memory lane.  A long time buddy of mine, Giant Brian, was on the show tonight and it was a really good time.  I worked as a producer on his show in Atlanta years back and we got together to reminisce about those times.  We are hoping to make it a full “Giant Cast” by getting the other partner in crime, Shaffee from the original Giant Show, and having a full on reunion.  This show contains lots of behind the scenes radio talk and is a nice peek into the craziness that was The Giant Show.
