Official Earwolf Page

Earwolf Synopsis Edit

Sean and Hayes quickly dig into some blind items as they name names and Draw the Blinds Up on Hollywood’s biggest stars. Then new media celeb GRACE HELBIG drops by to give listeners some tips on how to create a presence online and explain how vlogging on YouTube is very different than Saved by the Bell. Finally, Grace tells us which A-List Hollywood celebs she would most like to see fail as she reaches into the Popcorn Gallery.

Notes & Memorable Quotes Edit

Pre-Guest Segment Edit

  • Sean HATES degrading women, but bro's do go before hos
  • It's called a lifeboat not a chick boat (in regards to women going before men on a sinking ship)
  • We only use 10% of our brains (the front part)

Guest Segment Edit

  • (talking over the song) Sean used to give Paula Deen his Meemaw's recipes
  • Grace tries to explain to Sean and Hayes how to use their computer. Does it need juice?
  • Hayes has rare birds, including an African Grey. One is named Engineer Sam!
  • "I'm sorry, can we back up!? There's no dock on here." "..What are you thinking of?" "(singing) Sittin' on the dock of the bay.."
  • Hayes is confused how to get to YouTube. He tried MeTube GraceTube and EngineerSamTube before finally getting to YouTube.
  • Sean's little cousin has shown him some YouTubes, like The Color Purple, The Banger Sisters. What a great YouTube video!
  • TV is small movies, YouTubes is computer TVs.
  • Grace claims she started vlogging, Kevin Spacey claims it was him in House of Cards with his direct-to-camera addresses.
  • Sean's little cousin showed him some of the pictures he had taken with his camera phone. He's a whiz!
  • Grace made a joke about how narrative is about stakes, she says steaks are delicious. She got Sean pretty good and it's very funny but Hayes has been doing this too long to get fooled by that for even one second!
  • The Guys repeatedly talk about Samsung but insist they are not sponsored, and their phones are simply the best on the market
  • Grace's movie is a lot like The Banger Sisters.
