This week Jennifer Bjorklund was missing from the studio, searching for her dog Tommy who got out early in the morning and disappeared. The result of her nearly 12-hour search comes up near the end of this episode. With the boys left behind to play, Phil Hulett and Jay Campadonia took on the task of speaking about “The Science of Everything” with National Geographic Editor, Bridget English. Interestingly, Bridget knew a little too much about Phil Hulett. A new phrase was coined during this segment: “Gangster Hummingbird.” The Duck Dynasty guy is a hot topic this week, and coupled with a New Mexico Teacher who told a black student to take off a Santa hat because “Santa is White,” race relations was broached with author (Breaking the Line: Victoria’s Beginning) and race relations advocate, A’Mera Frieman. Lastly, the three finalists in the “Who Wants Karlo’s Job” contest showed off their skills, real time, for Phil and [...]
Karlo Sy Su sets out on a voyage from sunny Southern California to his new gig in Chicago where today’s temperature reading is 1 degree Fahrenheit. The crew offered going away gifts, and visiting news host, veteran Los Angeles TV News Anchor/Reporter, Marta Waller helped Karlo with a proper scarf knot. Jay had another run in with the opposite sex. We think he learned a valuable lesson this time. Phil mistook Stevie Wonder for Michael Jackson…and nobody will let him forget it. Casey Piotrowski is the author of the book, The Beatles 50 Most Memorable Moments. He visited the studio to review some of his fondest memorials, including his “feelings” for Yoko. Patricia St. James searched the metaphysical world for an answer that satisfied the crews questions about some of the simplest truths in life…and we think she lost Jay in the process. Listen to a robot telemarketer in action, and more.

This week’s episode is punctuated with heart-breaking news out of the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, plus Phil Hulett and the crew react to President Obama’s proposed change to Obamacare. Katie Clarke filled in for Jennifer Bjorklund with the new. Jay Campadonia was thrilled to learn how to “Look Up before you Hook Up” at http://myluhu.com, a website where you can get tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases and then post your clean record on online dating sites for potential mates to review. Phil recounted his missed opportunity to “blow chunks” on the air. It was then time to find out about all of major league baseball’s post-season awards from Cy Young to MVP, and the Tweet heard ’round the NBA from the Clipper’s Matt Barnes. Beer and Wine for the holidays was the next subject, courtesy of an expert who really knows his drink. Jay gave us a few real good reasons NOT to call [...]
Things got hot on the show, literally as the air conditioner went on the fritz. But Phil Hulett, Jennifer Bjorklund, Jay Campadonia and Karlo Sy Su plugged on with the business at hand. This was the day Twitter began publicly trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The Stock hit $50 at it’s peak on day one. The timeliness was perfect because we got the long awaited culmination of Jay’s online dating saga with his Twitter babe. You won’t believe what happened…we’re not sure we believe it! Plus, listen to the spirited discussion about bullying in the NFL centered around Miami Dolphins Lineman, Ritchie Incognito and his alleged, racially tinged abuse of linemate, Jonathan Martin. Then “The Martha Stewart of Marijuana,” Cheryl Shuman paid a visit to the studio with her daughter Aimee to advocate for medical marijuana use and revamping federal laws to allow for national leg [...]
This week the show went decidedly gross. First we talked about the state of human nature and dating with the creator of the new app called Carrot Dating which allows you to offer a bribe to a prospective date. Then we spoke to “The Bug Man” and learned all about termites, ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, mice and rats. The crew learned about a new line of underwear that completely filters the smell of flatulence. Dr. Kurtz joined the show to go into graphic detail about cold sores, herpes 1, herpes 2 and what you need to know about contact with others AND your children. Jay came clean about a relationship he is cultivating via text, he also started what might turn into a tradition as an enormous cruise ship floated past our dock-side studio. Karlo displayed a knack for puns. And we learned something “special” about Jennifer that left the boys in stunned silence.
This week the Phil Hulett and Friends crew discovered how to deal with “that guy” at work who drinks all the coffee but never makes a pot, found out which jobs require credit checks (you won’t believe a couple of them), Scandal with Kerry Washington’s Scandal, dry ice bomber, top-selling Halloween costumes - sexy or otherwise, over-the-line Halloween decorations, worst Halloween candies, pit bull chases down dog fight organizer and takes him down, Karlo with Dodgers versus Cardinals -Tigers versus Red Sox - America’s NFL Team - Adrian Peterson’s dead son and his multiple baby mama’s, plus Michael Bay Mugged in Hong Kong, what Jay would steal if he could get way with it, say it together with us - “Ass Wagon,” and if you squint…fill-in host Katie Clark sounds a lot like Jennifer Bjorklund.
Enjoy some of the best moments from the first 5 episodes of Phil Hulett and Friends, including: the Swedish Dreams Lady, Doctor Lobster, the Fresh-Faced Wing Man, 2 Women Who travel from Alaska to Florida Looking for Love, Pitbull Discrimination, Robo Call Killer, How Jennifer Almost Died, things we can’t do, and that wasn’t really the Kardashians on the show, was it?
