    Everyone Knows It's Plug Time

    Love this plugs' theme! Only the third one I've ever saved. Thanks for the good work.

    No more ads from Art of Charm please

    I could not agree more. You said exactly everything I was thinking, and I wanted to add my voice in support of cutting this sponsor if possible.

    No Episode 89???

    No news on Twitter, either. I'm freaking out! I have a lot of work to do, but can't start until I hear what's happening with those barrel fish.

    Episode 90 — Sharknado 2: The Second One

    Correction and Omission: At about the 43:00 minute mark, there is a scene with a religious zealot preaching about the end times and urging sinners to repent. He says something like "The wrath of God will bring the hammer down," and is then promptly smashed by a falling shark. WHY WAS THIS NOT A HAMMERHEAD SHARK?! This was a huge missed opportunity in the film. Great podcast, actually made watching Sharknado2 worthwhile.
  5. As a frequent visitor (and sometime editor) of the wiki it appears to be very comprehensive. At the moment, some of the content is pretty bare bones, but all of the basics on guests, characters, and appearances is complete and accurate.
  6. This is awesome. If you do decide to make one for characters, might I suggest the CBB Wiki, which has all the info on guests and characters they played. It may be easier to compile your database from that.

    Episode 81 — Finger Fuckers

    I have to jump on the opilionid support bandwagon. The only defense the "daddy long legs spider" has is its repugnatorial organs, that is, they can make a bad smell. Next time you see one, try smelling it. Those in my area make an odor a bit like rotten oranges. That is why they collect into large groups, as referenced in the show, to make their stink more powerful and scare away predators. The old myth about their venom is also an interesting story, and points to two problems in most people's understanding of entomology. The first is the problem of common names. The "daddy long legs" mentioned in the video are opilionids, not a spider, but this common name is also used to describe an actual spider in the family pholcidae.This is the second problem, the pholcid spider was once calculated to have a very potent venom based on its size, and was described as having the strongest venom per unit of body size, but this means the venom is no more potent than any other spider. Additionally, pholcids are unlikely to bite humans, and their venom is not harmful to people.

    Shadowy Plugs From a Shadowy Planet

    My favorite plugs theme since episode 57! I downloaded and listened to this song, like, eight times.

    Episode 18 — Yo, Is This Racist?

    Loved this episode on 'Earwolf Presents', made a subscriber out of me. On the topic of Native American sports teams, (Atom and His Package: If You Own the Washington Redskins, You're a Cock) does a great job of describing the issue, and is pretty funny. Lyrics follow, if you want to read along- I like sports, so there are some things I force myself to miss Like I never met an athlete I like, and hockey in Texas But when it comes to Native American nicknamed teams Even within the context of sports it's awful and mean And you'll go "wah wah wah, you're so PC" And I will say "wait" My my my, how have the tables turned so that being a fucking prick is a desirable trait? While we're on the subject of changing team names There's no jazz in Utah and few lakes in LA Just this once, give me the benefit of the doubt The Bullets became the Wizards, too violent? Get out! And you'll go "wah wah wah, you're so PC" And I will say "wait" Remind me again how it came to be that being 'the stupid American' became a desirable trait Wouldn't it be offensive if we cheered "rah rah rah" for the Carolina Negroes With our beat box cheer in our fake foam afros? Or if the Minnesota Vikes became the New York Kikes With dollar bills on their helmets cause that's what they like, you know? "Atom, what about the Saints, Angels, Padres too? Ain't that the same thing for Christians that's offending you?" When there's a Jesus Christ Mascot hot dog shooting crucifix thing Nailed to a cross, dying to save the team You'll be right, you'll be right But until then You're not right So what's your take on the Washington Redskins, what's your take on the Cleveland Indians? What's your take on the Washington Redskins, what's your take on the Cleveland Indians?

    Episode 84.5 — 7/13/2012 TWO CHARTED 23

    I first heard of Tokyo Rose from the "South Pacific" song "There is Nothin' Like a dame"- We get packages from home, We get movies, we get shows, We get speeches from our skipper And advice from Tokyo Rose, But Howard's keen voice acting was a way better bit of instruction in WWII history.

    Episode 102.5 — Sklarbro County 7

    Love the show! I don't want to be 'that guy' that sends corrections to the show, but just as an FYI, "Los Campesinos!" the first band featured on the show today, is from Wales. Thanks for reading.

    Episode 154 — Finger Guns

    I watched the "BFF" pilot, and liked it well enough. But every time St. Clair spoke, I could only hear Marissa Wompler talking about boners.

    Release on the kraken! Nice picture, Colin. I love all the fan art on here.

    Episode 73 — Ol\' Cookiebeard

    The rapper at the end of the show, Mac Lethal, is from Kansas City. Does that make him your I-70 rival, or is it a case of Missouri Boys supporting each other?

    Episode 73 — Ol\' Cookiebeard

    "So I picked up this woman at the saloon, a real classy lady, wearing a corset and a hoop skirt that stretched out to next week! Well, we get back to the covered wagon, and she starts giving me the ol' Trail of Tears!" "I know! It was crazy, we were right there in the wagon box, on top of the buffalo furs, and were doing the Trail of Tears. So hot. I'm going to go to the telegraph office next week and send her some sexy Morse Code. I'll be all 'dot dot dash dash dot,' and she'll be all 'dash dash dash dot.'
