  1. Looking at the author's page on /Film, he attended the Alamo Drafthouse event in person and managed to stretch de Souza's comments into four(!) separate articles, one of which references Matt and IWTT.

    Episode 157.5 - Minisode 157.5

    Please don't blame Paul for his stance on Dr. Mario. If you listen to his old episode of The Indoor Kids, you'll learn that he suffered from a debilitating childhood disease whose main symptom was always choosing the wrong side during the Console Wars. He can't help being who he is.* * A monster
  3. So good! I'm glad that Shaun Diston—host of one of the all-time greatest WSGLL episodes—made it to SPONTANEANATION. I hope he becomes an Earwolf regular now that he's half-moved to Los Angeles.

    Episode 157 - Surf Ninjas: LIVE!

    I don't know if Earwolf has ever been hit by takedowns in the past (I'm not an employee) but my chief concern is that they aren't targeted in the future. Google "[recent movie title] streaming" and look beneath the results where Google includes DMCA complaints. Studios generally send takedown demands with dozens of URLs at a time and, even if they're ridiculously broad requests, lawyers could become involved, etc. I don't have a problem with any of those, just the full movies. Thanks for being cool. I love you nerds.

    Episode 157 - Surf Ninjas: LIVE!

    My friends, please don't link to full movies on YouTube. While we all know they're out there, Paul usually makes a point of announcing where movies can be obtained legally on the minisodes, and I don't want Earwolf to have to deal with any DMCA takedown letters from shitty overzealous studios. Thanks!

    Episode 156.5 - Minisode 156.5

    We've been getting hammered by waves of spambots since early this morning and, because each one posts from a number of different IP addresses, the filters can't catch everything. Part of me wants to turn off new user registrations altogether, but there have been a lot of nice new people joining lately, so…
  7. Yes! I kept expecting someone to go with "Stair Witch Project", so that ending was a complete surprise.

    Ask Paul!

    Hi Paul, do you listen to all of the episodes before they come out for quality control purposes? If so, do you have any particularly memorable moments that you missed during the record and only discovered upon relistening?

    Episode 472 - Pleats, Please!

    At 10 hours, this may hold the record for fastest turnaround between Plugs Theme submission and Plugs Theme usage.
  10. This was a great episode and a very nice send-off for the live shows at Largo. Some things: As promised, Paul posted scans of the entire guest book for episodes #1-100 on Facebook. Earwolf also tweeted a very nice tribute to Paul (and I finally have a clean copy of the SPONTANEANATION national anthem!) I listened to the first two episodes of Missing Richard Simmons on Howl over the weekend and it is fascinating. Congratulations, Paul and Eban!
  11. For anyone interested, Seeso announced on Friday that season 3 of Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ premieres on June 1!

    Old episodes gone?

    Paul explained it all on this minisode.
  13. This one was recorded on November 16. I checked their individual Twitter accounts and @theblackversion and couldn't find any info about Calgary/Alberta dates, past or present.

    Why hasn't Aziz Ansari been on the podcast yet?

    You can either type them manually like this: [spoiler]My favorite was the episode where Aziz got attacked by a werewolf.[/spoiler] or open the "Special BBCode" dialog (by clicking the green icon to the left of the Font dropdown in the text editor) and select "Spoiler" from the list of codes.

    Episode 469 - Quiznos What QuizDid

    Now I'm curious how this is connected to Chief Queef, Scott's character from the Rizzoli & Isles movie on #159 Apicklelypse.

    Oh shit, it's Mikal Cronin!

    Episode 153 - Escape from L.A.: LIVE!

    Another interesting bit about early computer graphics at the end of this article from a Star Wars VFX artist:

    Episode 154.5 - Minisode 154.5

    Why, because it's made of facehugger blood?* * He said, having briefly fallen off the Red Bull wagon in 2016 after eight years clean, because the kiwi-flavored version was goood.

    Episode 154.5 - Minisode 154.5

    And while you're at it, I strongly suggest you stop with the unprovoked leering comments about driving female forum members to shows, masturbating to cartoons, etc. You have seriously misjudged the tone of these forums.
  20. No worries! The search function ignores 3-letter words, so "the 6th day" would never return any results.
  21. It wasn't ideal, but it wasn't by any means unlistenable. Never have I wanted a video version of SPONT more than when Nathan Lee Graham is guest.

    You cannot leap to the defense of a woman's autonomy and defend your right to use a gendered slur in the same sentence, bro.

    Paywall Special Announcement

    He was referring to the rotating set of archived episodes that will be available for free in the regular podcast feed. You can download all of the ones available today, and grab the next set when they're rotated several months from now. After a few of these cycles, you'll eventually have all of them. Alternately, Howl provides the complete archive of all episodes with no ad interruptions.
