    Episode 170 — New Scoop

    Scott's Rihanna bit is perfect fodder for one of those "10 hours" YouTube clips.

    Would you rather ringtone?

    Frozen Earwolf

    Yes, the show played as expected after I restarted the app. Thanks, Caroline!

    Episode 169 — Immortal Mustache

    It's just after the 32:00 minute mark, when Jay asks Cake Boss (cakeboss!) about his involvement in organized crime.

    Frozen Earwolf

    There's a problem with the episode data in the Earwolf app API; the URL to the show MP3 has a space after it. You'll have to wait until Earwolf fixes the issue on their end before the app will work properly. In the meantime, you should be able to play the show by loading this URL in your mobile browser: http://traffic.libsyn.com/professorblastoff/PB_20120721_63_NoGuest_EDIT_02.mp3

    Episode 169 — Immortal Mustache

    Wholeheartedly agreed. It's a shame they edited out Paul's laughter paroxysm that happened when Scott dropped the MAR-ON.

    Episode 130 — Robo Cop Diet!

    Awesome episode! I'm glad it remained so light-hearted, given the enormous (albeit unintentional) clusterfuck that ensued when Harmon appeared on Kevin Pollak's Chat Show.

    Episode 86.5 — 7/27/2012 TWO CHARTED 25

    Around the 48 minute mark, Kulap tells Howard "You're not even trying to run game and you're running game. You're like...a good version of Chris Gore." Followed by laughter from everyone in the studio.

    Episode 168 — Breaking Bread

    Can Brody Stevens be explained by Scientology? Is a manic focus on POSITIVE ENERGY the end result of reaching a certain OT level? Does Brody exist the same metaphysical plane as a couch-jumping Tom Cruise?

    Episode 168 — Breaking Bread

    The fact that Pope Benedict XVI was a member of the Hitler Youth seems totally inconsequential once you realize he was also the head of the Glendale Fitness Gestapo. Free choco-late! Free choco-late!

    Episode 104 — Synthetic Urine

    The weirdest part of his misplaced rant is that Dan wasn't even on #104, beyond the Weekly Wahlberg bit. Consider the possibility that "Lasers" is, in fact, Mark Walhberg...

    Episode 129 — Stool Pushing!

    Episode 167 — New No-Nos

    He also had a cameo in the final episode of Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham's tragically-cancelled Best Friends Forever.

    Episode 35 — I Fixed It!

    After listening to Gore on Who Charted and I4H, I can only assume that Attack of The Show's producers tried recreating the scientific experiment from the Schwarzeneggar/Devito masterpiece Twins. The ideal human traits — intelligence, creativity, empathy, drive, a willingness to work towards everyone's collective benefit, etc. — were used to create Chris Hardwick, and all of the remaining genetic detritus congealed into Chris Gore. This guy could not be more of a loathsome, self-serving shitbag. (Check out his Twitter feed if you remain unconvinced.) If he shows up on Monday's Comedy Bang Bang, I'm going to have some serious questions for the Earwolf braintrust, like "What blackmail fodder is he holding over your heads?"

    Show us your Earwolf swag!!

    Nice try, Lukas, but any regular Sklarbro listener recognizes the immediate aftermath of a baby race.

    Episode 84 — Podcuddle

    Given the debates that ensued after episodes with Eric Andre, Tony Clifton, Adam Pally, Andy Kindler, and now Chris Gore, it's shaping up to be the Summah of Contentious Guests at Earwolf! Is it the record-breaking temperatures across North America? Is it the sudden influx of thousands of new listeners thanks to CBBTV? Or are these simply the first warning signs that the world is suffering from a catastrophic Paul F. Tompkins drought? Consider these facts: ● Paul has not appeared on an Earwolf podcast since May ● A proper episode of the Pod F. Tompkast has not been released since May ● TrackPFT updates have fallen conspicuously silent ● Paul is not participating in the San Diego Comic-Con live CBB due to his distaste for nerds (and possibly dorks) Will this Tompkinslessness be our undoing? Has Earth reached a tipping point from which we cannot recover? Is there no one with the gift of the second sight to advise us in this, our hour of need? #soundoff in the comments below!

    Episode 40 — Judge Dredd

    Most importantly, how does your father feel about this movie?

    Earwolf at Bumbershoot 2012?

    To whom it may concern, What are the chances that Earwolf will make an appearance at this year's Bumbershoot? I was at the first of three live CBB shows during last year's festival, and I was transformed from a fledgeling listener into the man you see before you. A Scottmitzvah, if you will. The festival site has yet to announce any of their comedy lineup, but the sooner I know whether to invest in a 3-day pass, the better. (Kidneys are surprisingly difficult to move on the black market.)

    Earwolf at Bumbershoot 2012?

    Haven't seen this announced elsewhere: Bumbershoot announced their comedy line-up not long ago and, in addition to friends-of-the-show like Tompkins and Adomian and Benson and Posehn, Earwolf's very own How Did This Get Made will be appearing all three days.

    Episode 166 — Farts and Procreation 2

    Advance kudos to whomever designs the "Blaise & Rod's Blazin' Rods Climpton Machine Machines" company logo.

    Episode 83 — Nick Tunes

    Every time someone mentions Japandroids, I think they're talking about The Japan Dogs...

    Episode 101.5 — Sklarbro County 6

    It may be poor form to admit this, but I think I've grown to love County even more than The Old Country. Dan Van Kirk knocks it out of the park every single show. Back on topic, Yount's Jamiroquai bit from this episode had me crying.

    HAVIN' A SUMMAH 2012!

    Summah Gum: 5 Gum RPM Fruit. It tastes exactly like the color yellow Red Bull! Summah Gum Runnah-Up: Orbit Mint Mojito. I realize this is in flagrant violation of Howard's rules, but how can you go wrong with a gum that tastes like a summah drink? Summah Beer: So far, the winner is 21st Century's Bitter American. Summah Buzz: Tie between a Dark n' Stormy (Gosling's Black Seal, ginger beer, lime juice) or an Old Fashioned (bourbon, Angostura bitters, slice of orange, brandied cherry) Summah Adventure: Too early to tell, but I bought tickets for the Comedy Bang! Bang! tour ~2 minutes after they went on sale!

    I caught the first episode on IFC.com. I really like the concept of an alt. comedy game show — especially with guests like Tom Lennon — but there's a pretty stark disconnect between the contestants' participation (mostly/entirely improvised) and the host's patter (mostly/entirely scripted.) I think the show would benefit if the host were given more opportunities to riff, rather than applying a varnish of faux enthusiasm to rote teleprompter lines. It's possible that they were just trying to keep things tight for the pilot, and do loosen up in subsequent episodes.

    Episode 162 — Best Bro Hang

    If you have an hour to spare, the fine gentlemen at RedLetterMedia have provided a scholarly dissection of Adam Sandler's abysmal film career scam. At once, both enlightening and depressing.
