Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty Wednesday of lying to federal investigators. Despite the defense saying that he was high when other friends in Tsarnaev’s UMass-Dartmouth dorm removed potential evidence from the case, Robel Phillipos was convicted on two counts of lying.

Phillipos could spend up to 16 years in a federal prison. The sentencing will take place in January 2015.

The hosts were surprised the deliberations took as long as six days.

Said Callahan: “One juror who just couldn’t get enough of the free lunches. Maybe the coffee was good. Didn’t want to give it up.”

Asked Dennis: “What took so long?”

A clip of Michael Dukakis voicing support for Phillipos was played, in which the former governor said, “Justice will be done.”

“He was right,” Minihane said.

Replied Callahan: “Justice was done. And you lose again, Duke. What a loser. He testifies as a character witness with this burnout.”

The hosts also didn’t agree with a Boston Globe editorial that said although Phillipos was in the wrong, he should receive a lighter sentence because he had no previous criminal record and didn’t intentionally try to deceive the investigation.

“That’s unbelievable,” Callahan said. “They’re begging for mercy for this maggot who did impede the investigation.”

“Isn’t that amazing?” Minihane asked.

“You know two words that are missing [from the editorial]? Sean Collier,” Callahan said. “Sean Collier, if this little burnout had cooperated, Sean Collier could be alive today.”

— The final debate between gubernatorial candidates Charlie Baker and Martha Coakley was held Tuesday night. There were serious questions asked to the two, but there others that were lighter in nature.

One question in particular asked if the candidates would rather win the lottery or the election.

“That’s just the dumbest question I’ve ever heard,” Callahan said. “What candidates would go, ‘I’d rather win the lottery’?”

The moderators also asked Baker and Coakley what their signature dish would be if they were in the kitchen cooking. Baker, who apparently isn’t much of a chef, said he is better at making coffee and cleaning.

“If Charlie Baker were to be honest, he’d say, ‘God, that’s a stupid question,’ ” Callahan said.

Asked Minihane: “Can’t you just say something? Just say baked ziti and move on.”

“What is your signature dish?” Dennis asked Minihane.

“I actually make a damn tasty baked ziti,” replied Minihane.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

— Fauria was doing the show from New York City and decided to go visit a psychic Monday night. It didn’t go as well as he wanted.

“I go to the psychic’s little office, which is basically her house and there is just a curtain divider and someone is cooking dinner in the back,” Fauria said. “There is a kid yelling in this one room, ‘I want my teddy bear.’ You know, it was crazy. I roll up in there and she’s like go and sit down and of course I whip out my [microphone]. She freaks out. She freaks out. It’s a big [microphone] too. … The funny thing was like I’m going to use this for the radio and try and have some fun and of course she wanted nothing to do with it.”

He said it may have been because he was using his “Chicago, Lou [Merloni]” voice.

“It’s cool like on the phone, but when you do it in person don’t you think you look a little funny and probably not very trustworthy?” Merloni asked.

— Merloni brought up how the Bruins on Monday went to Children’s Hospital dressed as characters from the Disney movie ‘Frozen.’

The hosts then got talking about Halloween Friday night.

“Now Tim, will you be handing out candy at your one-bedroom studio apartment?” Fauria asked.

“No, because what is going to happen is we are going to go to the main door, which is upstairs and I am safely tucked away in the back,” Benz replied. “We don’t see a lot of kids having the inspiration to go out back and see if there is a door to downstairs. So, I think I am good and I don’t have to give out candy.”

— Actor Taylor Kitsch from the show ‘Friday Night Lights’ has been added to the cast of ‘True Detective.’

“I was going to ask because I don’t watch Friday Night Lights, if this was a good addition to the cast or not and I guess you guys aren’t familiar with Friday Night Light either, you don’t watch that show?” Benz asked.

“No, not the show. I’ve seen the movie,” Merloni replied.
