  1. The first day I wore my The Wolf Dead shirt I had FOUR people ask me about it (and of course I was fucking obnoxious about it and was telling them exact episodes to listen to and whatnot).


  2. I love the idea of Frank sitting in the Earwolf studio cutting and tying up all the t-shirts to our specifications (I know that's not what Julia suggested but it's what I'M suggesting!). When I was young and took dance class there were mothers who would take all of the Dance Team Sweatshirts and hot glue rhinestones over the logo. I feel like Frank is COMPLETELY capable of doing that to our tees in his free time.


  3. It's really tough for a number of reasons.
    First of all, female listeners only make up for 14% of our listeners, although they're WITHOUT A DOUBT the better, smarter listeners (shout out to Julia, Summer, Charlotte, Rachel, and all my other favorite lady listeners). Merch isn't super financially lucrative, so it's hard to justify making a new product that will only appeal to such a small percentage of the listenership. Personally, I'm the type who always buys the "unisex" even when a babydoll or ladies tee is available so maybe I'm not doing a good job of representing the female faction.
    So there are a lot of factors involved, but Earwolf loves our lady listeners and we're definitely open to any ideas anyone has.
    I also love the idea of having a lady thread on here, because as I mentioned, Lady Earwolves are the best.


  4. I think like many people, my response to meeting all the Challenge contestants was "I HAVE TO LISTEN TO ALL OF THESE PODCASTS NOW!" so I figured I'd start a thread for good starter episodes.
    I'll start off by suggesting a few good Totally Laime starter episodes:
    Paul F. Tompkins is their guest this week which...I mean, come on! You know the deal with him (he's great).
    In their introductory sample they used bits from the Aubrey Plaza and Adam Pally episodes. Those are both tons of fun.
    Lastly, Earwolf favorites Harris Wittels and Paul Scheer have both guested and their episodes are super great. I read a lot of forum posts from listeners saying that they've been listening to Totally Laime since Wittels appearance, so it's definitely an addictive episode.
    What do you guys think? I read a lot of comments from The F Plus fans. What's a good starter episode for that one?


  5. I'm with you Julia. I think Kelly is so beautiful, smart, nice, and funny. I thought she was so delightful on this episode. After listening I revisited some episodes of The Osbournes, and it's WILD how scandalized the nation was by the show compared to, say, Jersey Shore. It's so much tamer than ANYTHING on television right now. I so enjoyed this episode.


  6. I haven't seen this movie since it came out, but I LOOOOVED it when it did. Yes, it's camp-y but in a really delightful way. And if I recall correctly, the character wasn't actually bisexual, just so eager to feel sexually desired that he hit on a gay male friend.


  7. Comic book movies are huge right now! But unlike past summers with The Dark Knight, Kick-Ass, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, we're stuck with Green Lantern and its whopping 27% on Rotten Tomatoes. Who knows why it's such a failure, but I'm sure the dumb poem isn't helping. Leave your better poems here on Earwolf and on Facebook.


  8. Nick Kroll is one of the most prolific Earwolf guests, so he was destined to show up on Professor Blastoff! That is, if destiny exists. Destiny or fate, or karma, or astrology, or free will. It's all up for grabs this week, along with a pre-posthumous message from Tig and Nick's new "Weird Gypsy" character. I would say to enjoy it, but perhaps your enjoyment has already been determined. Trippy, right?


  9. It's been five long months since "Weird Al" Yankovic last left his mark on Comedy Bang Bang. In that time he has released his highest charting album to date with Alpocalypse and he's in studio to discuss the recording of the album as well as his worst gig ever and his nerdy relationship with groupies. It's been even longer since Dame Sir Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber flounced his way into the show, and thank God he's here to once again jazz up the Would You Rather theme song and offer up parody ideas to Al. If you haven't yet, be sure to read How The Bread Is Made, Scott's blog series about the making of Comedy Bang Bang.


  10. Jesse, you can download it from here without problem- http://comedydeathrayradio.libsyn.com/111-david-guy-levy-harris-wittels-brett-gelman?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+comedydeathrayradio+%28Comedy+Bang+Bang%3A+The+Podcast%29&utm_content=FeedBurner

    Hopefully we'll figure out what's been going wrong with the direct downloads. In the future, if there is ever an issue, try out the RSS feed and see if that download works. In today's case, it does.


  11. Regarding TV vs. Podcasts- I effing love television. I (think I) want to work in television. Television made me a comedy nerd and I think there is SO much great television I'm enjoying right now....television that I watch from my iPod or streaming off of Amazon or on Hulu or Netflix.
    I think that television as a structure is great. 20 minutes, 3 acts, it's a GREAT way to be entertained. But I think what will happen is that "television" will leave TV and so people really will have the option of "Will I listen to Who Charted or watch Childrens Hospital" because they will consume both types of media using the same device. That's just what I've observed.


  12. I really enjoyed listening to this episode. I don't think I'll be the only one who was answering the questions along with Dustin, Mike, and Julia. Thus, I will bore you with my how-I-started-listening story:
    I started listening (watching) the Best Week Ever podcast and after about a week it got cancelled. It was about a year later that I remembered podcasting was a thing. This was between The State on DVD being announced and being released and I spent the bulk of my time searching for press regarding the DVDS. I read something on Tom Lennon's Twitter about being on a podcast so I went into iTunes, put in his name, and downloaded every thing that came up including the first ever episode of CBB (then CDR). I first listened to Tom, Kerri, and Ken on The Sound of Young America and found it very enlightening. Then I listened to CBB and IMMEDIATELY went back to iTunes following the "You might also like" train until I had about 15 subscriptions. I spent that summer housesitting so I just listened to podcasts every single hour of every single day. I listened to CBB stream on Indie 103 starting with Besser/Leggero/Agee episode and the rest is history!
