Jessica St. Clair aka Marissa Wompler charts it up on today’s Who Charted! Jessica unearths Howard’s memories of his superhero group days during the 2012 Billboard Year End Hot 100 Songs and says no thank you to The Hobbit during the Movie Chart. Plus, we hear tales of babysitting, college, and Jessica’s early days at UCB-NY as she coaxes Hermes the Chart Goose!

Aww, Friendly's shut down?! That place is ingrained in my childhood.

I'm just spitballing here but, how about Wompler and Lee together on a future episode of CBB?

There's 33 vertebrae in the human body, but 108 is significant for a lot of other, more way awesome reasons:

The Connivers may just be my favorite Howard story ever.

Best Foods took over Hellman's forever ago. But for some reason never wanted to use the Hellman's brand name west of the Miss.

Perhaps they were afraid that someone would link up the mayo with Anton LaVey.

Haha, I have a friend who used to hook up with strippers who told me almost the exact thing that "Lee" said about not paying them because they think of you as a customer.

Smith Island in Maryland is the place with the dialect. I don't think it's all that old english sounding, though.

St. Clair is like the Ghost of Regimes Past. She needs a morning show on one of the networks. I would be so pumped up for the day after a half hour of womping it up.

Howard there is a documentary on Cropsie, you have to check it out. Turns out it was at least partly real. On Netflix.

Jessica St. Clair is the ideal guest. I thought the episode was going to peak early after the genius-bonkers Connivers story, but it never slowed down, even though it was extra long. Terrific episode, folks!

Holy charts, this has immediately rocketed to the top of my Best of Who Charted 2012 list. Jessica St. Clair is incredible.

Julia, the next Earwolf contest should involve people dressing up as members of The Connivers.

For the second straight show, the previous top moments of 2012 discussion has been obliterated.

Twenty minutes before getting into the first chart is highly unorthodox, but A-OK when the guest is the most delightful person in the podcast universe. Howard + Jessica = Pure Magic
