It’s a wet, smelly, awkward orgy here at Glitter in the Garbage, and you’re invited! Drew tells another telling tale about his lovely friend Seth and the horrors of hard drug use (unless you’re a comedian and can pass it off as such). Paul Rust and Michael Cassady join the fun by pitching Lucky Charm mascots, busting minds game-show style, searching for missing children, and waxing nostalgic on the classic film Books. We’ll see you next week, and remember; if you wanted to make out with us at a party we would TOTALLY let you!

A major factor in providing entertainment is knowing how it will get to the audience. This week we have Rob Greenlee from Zune Marketplace to talk to us about the impact of podcast aggregation.

Grab some cheddar bay biscuits, because it’s time for Who Charted?! Our guest this week is Rob Corddry who is best recognized from Childrens Hospital, The Daily Show, and from role playing Beauty and the Beast. Rob shows off a surprising interest in dance club music, a shocking criminal record, and uniquely fond memories of Boy Scout camp. After researching the definition of ‘rubric’, Rob is embarrased that he still doesn’t know what it means. Chart Darts is here again, as well as the Chart Mutation. Check our Earwolf show page to hear an exclusive bonus chart featuring timeless films of the past.

We feel a little guilty having done two Nic Cage movies and only one John Travolta flick. Taking that into consideration, we have chosen the “classic” sci-fi thriller Battlefield Earth as our next film. When you can take the scripture of Scientology and make it boring and obvious you have truly achieved a rare feat. If you are as impressed with this interplanetary suckfest as we are, tell us which award you wish The Razzies had bestowed upon it either on Earwolf, at HowDidThisGetMade@Earwolf.com , or via Facebook.

Friends, we’ve been getting to know each other for thirteen weeks now. Can we finally be real with each other? No? Awesome. Instead, let’s play pretend! Drew, Ted and Brian play pretend being boxcar hobos, astronauts, mommy and daddy (and therapist), and the old stand-by, racist drunks. But if you are looking for realness, look no further than the tragic story of how Shakespeare mangled Drew’s arm. Feel free to get real with us on Facebook and leave your comments on Earwolf.

So far we’ve talked about podcast monetization with comedians, producers, journalists, and performers. This week we invite Scott MacDonell to bring his unique voice to the conversation. Scott is the VP of Marketing for www.legalzoom.com and he runs his own podcast, This Week in Marketing. Because of his involvement in both worlds, he can inform us about the pitching and pricing of podcast advertising, understanding a listener base, and how podcasting differs from radio and television.

We have three guests this week: Howard’s brother, the ghost of Frank Sinatra, and Jen Kirkman. When Jen isn’t drinking wine, writing on NBC, or studying American History, she’s trying to figure out band names and movie plots with Howard and Kulap. We have our very first Alternative Music chart, plus movies and chart roulette. Listen for Jen’s advice on how to make a terrible song enjoyable, and visit Earwolf to hear this week’s stereo-pumping music chart.

After our nap through The Last Airbender, we thought we’d take an adrenaline-fueled ride through hell with Drive Angry 3D. If you like your movies illogical, uninspiring, and full of weird sex, you’ve come to the right place. Curtis Gwinn joins Paul, June, and Jason to figure out why there are muscle cars in hell, how the casting process works, and what a “God Gun” is. Listen to hear if your Nic Cage movie pitch got chosen, and to learn how much it would cost you to make a film of this magnitude.

After months upon months of asking, Scott finally receives an answer to the all important question “What’s Up Hot Dog?” He also receives the answer to the less important questions “What is Hot Dog’s favorite band?” and “How does Hot Dog feel about races other than his own?” Comedian and detective (as we’ll all remember from The Opener) Ben Schwartz helps Scott through this chance encounter by judging singing contests, proctoring depression tests, and performing some impressive role-playing. Jukebox Jury makes its final appearance (we hope), and we take a trip through comedy history with some Slam Slam jokes. Keep leaving your catchphrase suggestions, and check Scott out in Austin and Chicago.

Dreams come true guys! After being huge fans of actor KYLE BORNHEIMER’S from his hilarious role on Worst Week and now on NBC’s Perfect Couples, we would never have believed that we would hang with such a cool dude. Well, not only did that happen but he came over to our house, hung out with us for a hilarious hour and let us know that he is indeed super cool (for example: he would not like Hitler even if he were awesome in a dunk contest)! Enjoy.

No folks, you Sklaren’t having deja vu: Patton Oswalt joins us YET AGAIN this week on Sklarbro Country!

So crack open an Erdinger, soak in a tub full of Sklar, read up on yourHenderson trivia, and enjoy your time in Sklarbro Country.

Henderson Nation, we have some advice for you: Don’t do crack, drink chocolate milk, and listen to Sklarbro Country. That’s all we got…oh wait, no it isn’t! We “got” a great episode with Dana Gould and Jesse “The Body” Ventura! Dana explains what it’s like to grow up in a house full of athletes, and tells us about the wrestling sensation Lucha VaVoom. Apparently Jesse Ventura bought our Sklarbro Country Live recording and wasn’t too pleased with what we said about him. If that’s not enough, we have our FIRST EVER Nascar story, plus an exquisite Steve Garvey video that will make you seen ninjas in a whole new light. Don’t forget to stop by Legal Zoom to protect your legality lest Elijah Wood turn you in.
