On first glance, its easy to dismiss a podcast that makes extended ejaculation jokes and features segments like How Big Is Liam Neesons Cock? But take into account that the podcast in question is hosted by film director Kevin Smith and DJ/Smith collaborator Ralph Garman and features insider news on the wheelings and dealings of the Hollywood machine, and it becomes clear that Hollywood Babble-On is one of the most infotaining pieces of audio on the Internet.
If people are laughing, thats all I care about, says Garman, who along with Smith will be hosting a live recording of Hollywood Babble-On today at Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks. Garman, a veteran radio deejay, says the podcast medium is much more liberating than television. If youre dependent on corporate sponsors, he says, you cant really say what you want to say all the time. 7 p.m. 1000 West Oaks Mall Road. For information, call 281-920-9268 or visit www.drafthouse.com. $45.
