Okay, it's quiz time: Who has made it big on Parks and Recreation, written movie scripts for major studios, won an Emmy for writing the Oscars, and had a starring role in a movie? That's right, the answer is Ben Schwartz who joins us this week for a detailed discussion of UK iTunes Singles and a tricky game of Chart Roulette. This is a guy who can kill at Howard's quizzes, offer up legitimate showbiz knowledge in the Movie Chart, and summon his very own dolphin when the roulette wheel started acting up! Get to know the un-douchy, Lego-loving, gypsy-seducing side of Jean Ralphio this week on Who Charted?! Be sure to visit the Earwolf store to pick up a copy of Who Charted? LIVE in Seattle with special guest Sir Mix-A-Lot!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that uses television shows to express time periods. And I have a history degree.

Ben Schwartz was so much fun! Please bring him back on the show again soon. I can only imagine what quizzes he'll prepare for Howard. By the way, I'm really looking forward to Ep. 50...

Did Kulap pronounce Ben's P&R character as "June Raphael"?

Another fantastic show. I've been listening to some of the past episodes and I have to say that I really like when the guest "breaks" the show a little. Guests like Andy Kindler, Steven Brody Stevens and I think Ben Schwarz really make Howard work hard to keep the show on track, but there's such a great sense of "what's going to happen next?".

Anyway, I listen to a lot of great comedy podcasts but this one is tops for me. Now, how can I get that Seattle ep? Peese!

Keeping Engineer Dustin on his toes was amazing. I think Ben needs his own podcast on earwolf where he tries to stump the engineer.

Thanks Jeff, that was a lot of fun. He was great. I have a new respect for Fred Norris.

I don't know if I could keep up with him but I'd love to try!

Craig, that song is Jay-Z & Kayne West - H*A*M (Bonus Track)

Cheers,
Dustin

Amazing episode. Some of the best repartee since the Rob Huebel or Andy Richter eps.
