  1. Keith Luhrs and Lauren Billings Luhrs are a husband-and-wife science team. But the science doesn’t stay at the lab. Lauren has used that same discipline to become a bestselling romance author, Keith has applied it to his incredible home brewing operation, and they both have applied it to raising their children. In this funny and freewheeling conversation, our host explores whether this same method can make his creative life more disciplined and productive, too! Here on Howl

    Episode 7 - Christmas and Cows

    Hi!! Thanks for posting!
  10. Please read the below message from our dear friend, Matt MaGourley... "Unfortunately there will be no Pistol Shrimps Radio this week. A family member of Mark's is very ill and even though I'm sure we could find a substitute for him, it just doesn't seem like the right time to make a bunch of dumb jokes. Mark is my original boogie and my thoughts are with him, Kristina, and their family. Hoping very much to be back next week. Thanks for listening, Matt"
  11. Just so everyone knows, we hit our first technical snag of the whole tour (not bad if I say so myself) but it does mean that show #2 from Portland will be later than usual and for that we are very very sorry. I will post the forum for the new ep as soon as it's up like always, or check the Howl twitter for updates!

    Welcome, influx of new listeners!

    I have the power to sticky posts... What would you guys like? This post stickied? Or should I create a new thread called like, "Welcome to Hollywood Handbook" and you guys can do whatever the heck you want with that? Let me know.
  20. Bing! Actor extraordinaire Stephen Tobolowsky joins Matt to chat about his role as Ned Ryerson, the insurance salesman who pesters Bill Murray each and every morning in Groundhog Day. Stephen talks about shooting his famous scene in every weather condition imaginable, improvising with Bill Murray, Harold Ramis as a personal hero, and much more. Stephen also tells us about his experience on Deadwood, working with a spiritually-transformed Steven Seagal, and the worst squibbing of his life. Plus, Matt interviews a very special lady in his life in a new segment called I Was There Mew.
  21. The plan is for every single show to eventually have 100% ad-free archives. This makes it fair to all the premium subscribers. It might be hard to explain to someone who is completely new to Earwolf and Howl that, "This show is the only one has ads because the fans wanted to keep them" BUT we do know that the HH fans and Spont fans really really like the ads. So we are looking into a possible way to maybe toggle ad-free off if someone really really wanted to listen to the ad-full version. Maybe there's another solution we haven't thought of yet. We shall see once it's Handbook's turn to go ad free. But your request to keep funny ads has been heard!
