    He said in the "promo" section of the show at the end about a website that had 1000s of playlists that one of the producers had worked on that chronicles the history of music, and said hed post the link on the website. I couldnt find where that section on the site would be (or could i remember the name of  the producer or website). Does anyone know the link? (or any other relevant information) Thanks!

    Paul was talking about the Richmond Anthology of Music, created by Earwolf producer Josh Richmond. He also set up the @RAMAnthology Twitter account to automatically tweet excerpts every day.

    Also has anyone else noticed that Jason interrupts June way more than normal and she sounds very not thrilled with it - especially in live episodes and this one i feel. Kind of makes it uncomfortable to listen to kind of like when John Glazer went on Pete Holmes podcast and he mentioned getting a role over Glazer and he then immediately goes cold. Kinda felt like that. I’m sure touring is very exhausting and stressful and must be especially so for june as she is a working mother/badass, but it just made me feel tense and i love the show and all 3 hosts so it made me worried. 

    I can't remember whether it was on an episode or her social media but, when listeners raised this issue a few years ago, June released a statement that essentially said "I am honored that you all care and are speaking up on my behalf but everything's fine!" June has only grown in her power since then, and definitely knows how to shut people down with devastating precision when necessary. I get the feeling that tight editing and the lack of body language sometimes make the live shows seem more frenetic than they really are.

    I *cannot* be the only one that LOOOVES 'Comedy Bang Bang' but never laughed at 'The Monster F*ck'?  And it won "best of" !  Sheesh.  I get the vibe PFT isn't a big fan of that little number, either.  

    You can watch Paul's reaction to the most recent performance for yourself. (Spoiler alert: you're wrong.)

    From the episode, it sounds like June has never seen any of the original Star Wars.  I would have liked/been curious to have had her as an extra guest, so we could get the response of someone to Star Wars who encountered it for the first time as an adult.  

    If it's any consolation, Lauren Lapkus and Nicole Byer are recording a podcast where they watch all the Star Wars movies for the first time.

  5. Programming note: Earwolf is migrating its files to a new hosting service and, as a result, every HDTGM episode is currently available for download. If you want to save them before they once again disappear behind the paywall, now would be a good time. You can plug the new feed URL into an RSS reader or see this set of direct links to every mainline (i.e. non-minisode/rerelease/bonus) episode:

    oh shit, is Little Ms. Sunshine the Grapes of Wrath, minus the political content?

    I had the same realization, especially once the jalopy breaks down as they approach the government camp and they're forced to coast it the last mile!

  7. Paul & Amy say buona sera to 1974’s epic mobster sequel The Godfather Pt. II! They analyze Robert De Niro’s Sicilian, learn which US president loved the film, and ask if this sequel really covers territory not covered by the first film. Plus: Tom Santopietro, author of The Godfather Effect, talk about how the Godfather films have affected the Italian-American community.

  8. More than anything, watching this reinforced my belief that all of George Lucas's great successes were thanks to someone preventing him from shooting himself in the foot. Left to his own devices, he makes dumb decisions like tacking on the tone-deaf epilogue. Coppola script-doctored American Graffiti, Marcia Lucas's steady hand rescued A New Hope from incomprehensible gibberish, and Irvin Kershner prevented the Star Wars franchise from CFIT. Ditto Spielberg and Indiana Jones.

    As far as coming-of-age tales go, American Graffiti feels like the promise that the future once held in my youth, whereas The Last Picture Show feels like the grim reality I should have expected. I rated both of them 4/5 stars on Letterboxd. Breaking Away isn't on the AFI list yet it sits at the exact midpoint between them.

    Oh my god that's so beautiful though! I truly went back and forth about something simple vs a realistic portrait but honestly there's this tattoo artist that does some of the best portrait work I've ever seen. So I've decided to save my money to travel to him!

    Wow, those are so good that I worry I'd travel all the way to Belgium only to discover they were photoshopped!

    I've been planning on a Marilyn tattoo for quite some time, and I want it done absolutely the best it could possibly be so I gotta start saving a tooon of money for it lol.

    You say this and all I can picture is something like comedian/podcaster Erin McGathy's Julie Andrews tattoo.

  11. I watched Some Like It Hot without knowing about any behind-the-scenes drama and I was taken aback by how great Marilyn's performance was. Not "coaxed into competence by a brilliant man-director and clever editing" great, not "playing a silly caricature like in All About Eve", but instead fully-realized humanity on display. And, for the first time, I understand the Marilyn Monroe mythos/fell in love with her a little. In comparison, Jack Lemmon is not nearly as sympathetic as he is in The Apartment (which I adore) and Tony Curtis is a straight-up dick (ahem, "cad") through most of the film.

    I was also surprised by how modern the movie feels. There were a handful of jokes that would have an edge to them even in 2019, so it was pretty astonishing to see them in a 1959 comedy.

    Twiddling my own personal bass fiddle, it was nice to finally learn the origins of the sample from this Lovage track:

  12. Amy & Paul get cookin’ with 1959’s Billy Wilder gender-bending comedy Some Like It Hot! They learn why the film’s final line was controversial, ask if films about cross-dressing still need to be made, and dive into Marilyn Monroe’s troubled history with Hollywood. Plus: Mira Sorvino discusses getting into Marilyn’s head to star in “Norma Jean & Marilyn.”

    I really hope this is site wide and a bunch of people never see this thread. They'll always wonder "why is hedgehog a reaction?"

    They should be available everywhere. I'm honestly torn between wanting to use the hedgehog for its intended purpose and ONLY using hedgehogs from now on.

    I don’t feel like any of my options to recognize what you’re saying (i.e smiley faced “likes”) are really appropriate, but I just wanted you all to know that hear all of you.

    After considering many options for a symbol of "friendly encouragement about thorny issues", I've added a new reaction type that I hope everyone will find suitable.

  15. While I have my own relatively mundane story about the choir director at my church (who later served a lengthy jail sentence for plying other teenage boys with alcohol and smut), I was thankfully old enough and cynical enough to see the writing on the wall and extricate myself from that nightmare-in-the-making. But I wanted to take a moment to say I'm glad all of you are here and able to turn this terrible movie into a net positive. ❤️

    And, if we're talking Spike Jonze dance videos, to share the greatest perfume ad of all time:

    Hey Guys,

    I know this is really late in the game but I wanted to prep and watch the movie saw this thread, checked out the link and password but it’s not working for me. It keeps asking me for the password. I understand its supposed to be “Bonkers” but it’s not working. Any other ways to see the movie in Canada ?

    Make sure you enter the password in all lowercase.

  17. FWIW, here's what Engineer Brett posted on the Earwolf subreddit:


    I know the news is a bummer for some of you. It basically came down to Stitcher Premium or the end of Who Charted. This allows Howard and I to carry on the show, and gives him the freedom to create more great stuff in the future. Ideas are brewing!

    The chartists mean the world to us, some of you have been supporting us for nearly a decade at this point. For those already subscribed to Stitcher Premium, this won’t feel like much of a change. For the rest, I hope you consider getting the free trial, I think you’ll find that SP has thousands of hours of Earwolf gold that makes it extremely worth it. Thank you for sticking with us!

    if I'm subscribing for a year at a time, I'd like to have some assurance that the shows I listen to will actually still be around.  After ~2 years of subscribing, I've listened to everything in the back catalog that I want to listen to, and at that point, I think it's really debatable as to whether it's good value for money.

    That's fair. One benefit of both Stitcher and Patreon is that the monthly fee grants you access to the entire back catalog, so someone could theoretically move the same $5 charge to a different subscription every month and binge on the new content there. That's too much administrative overhead for me, so I've deliberately adjusted my TV/movie/live event habits to afford multiple audio subscriptions instead.
