    Episode 507 - Popcorn Costume

    I love that the name "Chef Kevin" has apparently been adopted by everyone at Earwolf. I hate that Chef Kevin didn't capture any photos of Paul and Rhea losing their shit after Tawny made the Grape Lady noise.

    Episode 170 - Bratz

    PSA: For more info about Carry A. Nation, the most recent episode of Criminal (one of my favorite podcasts) covers her bizarre life story in detail.

  5. In case you guys aren't following Paul on Twitter, the Garbage Pail Kids cast is coming out of the woodwork. And later… Sounds like Blake is going to have a lot of material for this week's article. Edited to add: I think they just booked Chrissy Teigen for one of the November live shows via the magic of Twitter!

    Musical Mondays - Week 18 - Gigi

    If y'all get bored over the weekend, you can watch my "alternate universe where I participate in Musical Mondays" pick: the to Rags to Riches. It's sort of a 60s jukebox musical about a bunch of orphan girls getting adopted by a rich guy, starring post-Little Shop of Horrors pre-Martin Tisha Campbell, Bill Maher, and Joseph Bologna (who sadly just died this week.) My sisters recorded this during its initial broadcast in 1987 and played it on repeat until the VHS tape wore out, so it's been seared into my brain. This experience is perfectly replicated by watching the ghastly VHS rip on YouTube. If you want more of the show in pristine DVD quality, you can find the complete boxed set on Amazon (using HDTGM's affiliate code to give the gang a cut.) Enjoy/I'm sorry.
  7. Karen also has another podcast with Chris Fairbanks called Do You Need A Ride?, which they record while giving comedians rides to/from the airport or to gigs around town. It's been reduced to a monthly show (since Karen has been busy with TV gigs and touring My Favorite Murder, and Chris had hip replacement surgery) but there are a lot of great episodes in the archive.

    Episode 112 - Footlight Parade (w/ Bryan Cogman)

    The reason the poll remains open after Amy calls it is because (unfortunately) there's no way for us to close the poll without closing the thread altogether. Letting the discussion continue is more important than a "clean" vote count.

    Episode 166 - Timecop: LIVE!

    I usually dread the audience participation segment of live shows (thanks to dudes asking dumb questions and trying to one-up the professional comedians) but the people of Austin killed it.* My working theory is that all of Largo's seating is technically considered a balcony due to some arcane building code, and the entire LA audience is therefore balcony people. Gross. * After editing out the guy taylor anne mentioned in the last thread

    Episode 166 - Timecop: LIVE!

    I just watched all of Twin Peaks in preparation for the new series, and there's during the second season (1990) where Ben Horne goes on a bender and watches old home movies of his family breaking ground on the Great Northern Hotel. Then again, nothing died except his future business prospects.

    I don't have any visibility into how the hotline is set up, but I assume this is just a product of how its purpose has evolved over time. I recommend tweeting about it to @paulscheer, as he's active and obviously receptive to listener feedback.

    Paul tweeted this a few minutes ago… …proving once again that I am the world's greatest visionary.

    You guys have my blessing if you want to create a new thread for each movie you cover. Musical Mondays is one of the best things to come out of this community in recent memory.

    Episode 165.5 - Minisode 165.5

    How about a take on Family Feud, where you ask June questions ahead of time and people call in to guess how she answered? If the listeners (as a group) can't name all of her top answers, June wins the week. For example, you'd ask "What are the scariest movie monsters?" and she would answer "Robots of any kind", "very small men", etc. You could frontload as many questions as June is willing to tolerate in one sitting and then roll them out one-per-minisode. Listeners probably wouldn't be able to guess every answer, but the actual joy is hearing June's mind work.

    Episode 165.5 - Minisode 165.5

    Don't thank me, thank Earwolf producer Dana. She has to wade through the Explanation Hope Line every week and, if the best calls she's found have included jerk-off stories, imagine the nightmare fodder that doesn't make the cut. This is why Paul needs you nerds to call in. That dead air isn't going to fill itself!

    The 6th Day (2000)

    No apology necessary! The forum search is terrible and ignores three-letter words, even after we've configured it not to.

    The 6th Day (2000)

    This movie is the example I used for finding impossible-to-search-for threads in the instructions pinned at the top of the Bad Movie Recommendations forum. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  23. Aw, thanks! My thinking was that Paul & co. might jump at the chance to do silly accents, but the fact that so many of them also had a background in musical comedy was just plain luck. Even without my meddling, every second of this episode was a true delight!

    Episode 164 - The Wraith: LIVE!

    Worse than that, it's the number of cars/motorcycles/wheelchairs/dogs he's destroyed with his car, a reference to the markings on fighter planes:
