Earwolf SynopsisEdit

It’s a special March Music edition of Comedy Bean Bag as Matt Berninger of The National & Rhett Miller of the Old 97’s get candid about being lead singers all while the Old 97’s play live versions of songs from their new album “Most Messed Up.” Later, entrepreneur George Zimmer appears in a cloud of cigar smoke and under the guise of a silhouette to tell us about being fired from Men’s Wearhouse. Then, fellow lead singer Russell Crowe of 30 Odd Foot of Grunts drops by to give us some behind the scenes info on his upcoming film Noah. You’re going to like what you hear in this episode. I guarantee it.

Would You Rather?Edit

Would you rather live in a world where every year it rained guns for a day OR it rained fish hamburgers for a month?

Russell Crowe is declared the winner as he abstained from voting and everyone else was docked points.

One of the guests ask Scott for his vote on the WYR scenario, a classy move Scott calls "unprecedented ."
