Andy Kindler is one of the best in the business, skilled at mauling the mediocre and skewering the sub-par, but is he any match against Mr. Popper's Penguins and Pitbull? Yes. Moving on. We visit U.S. iTunes for a look at their top singles before finding our way to the cinema and eventually to the pub for a round of darts. Fans of Andy surely won't be surprised by his views on The Zookeeper or his impression of Brody Stevens, but you might not guess his opinion of Russell Brand or feelings for Adele.

Odd how no one seems to have read MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS, the novel, as a kid. (Well, I never read it, either, somehow, but I knew it was around.) I hope no one' s pretending that we didn't know what the Thing was in SUPER 8.
I'm just surprised that the Katy Perry parody song actually sounded catchy. Young millionaires be hatin'.
As always, a good show, folks. Thanks.

Calvin Coolidge's campaign actually did use "Keep Cool with Coolidge" as a campaign slogan...and was one of a string of unimpressive Republican presidents (after the obese one, William Howard Taft, who came in third behind Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt running as the Progressive Party candidate in his re-election campaign in 1912, and another go-to lousy, scandal-ridden president, Warren Harding). If Obama had ever been a progressive, and had even lived up to his one progressive pledge that differentiated him in policy statement from Rodham Clinton, ending the wars, I suspect more progressives would be happier with him as anything but an improvement over the last lousy, scandal-ridden Republican president...

Taft, who did a little better in 1912 than the Socialist Party candidate, the labor-movement hero Eugene V. Debs, but not much better (about 3 million GOP votes, a little less than a million SP votes), ended up on the Supreme Court. And, of course, Coolidge and not his campaign was one of the string of unimpressive Republican presidents in the years between Lincoln and...well, since Lincoln (and Lincoln definitely had some overly pragmatic downsides, such as, obviously, abolishing slavery initially only in the states that had succeeded from the US already--the wartime suspension of important rights being another...a hardy tradition).

God Bless you Howard and Kulap!! Who Charted is one of the best shows on Earwolf, and having Andy Kindler on was a very welcome treat. Truly one of the funniest comedians of all time. Wednesday is quickly becoming my new favorite day, cause a new ep of HC is droppin'! Woot!!

Andy Kindler is so funny. He killed it this show.
As much as I like comic books and Green Lantern, the movie stunk. Kulap should definitely skip it since she doesn't even like the character. I went in with low expectations and it didn't manage to meet even them. I am looking forward to Captain America though!
Great show as always.
