Podcast network Earwolf started up a new show this morning. Called Hollywood Handbook, it's a fake behind-the-scenes look at life in Hollywood hosted by TV writers Sean Clements (Workaholics) and Hayes Davenport (Eastbound & Down). The first episode features New Girl's Jake Johnson as a guest. This is Clements and Davenport's second show for Earwolf. Their first, the reality SHOW show, began last November and ended its run last month. Earwolf launched another new podcast, Eban Schletter's Fantastical Musicorium, last month and is expanding into TV development and production after signing an exclusive deal with IFC.
The absurdly talented Eban Schletter, who's served as a composer on Mr. Show, The Pod F. Tompkast, SpongeBob SquarePants, and countless other projects, has a new podcast debuting on the Earwolf network today. Called Eban Schletter's Fantastical Musicorium, it features Schletter going through his back-catalogue of songs he's composed for comedies and other shows that have never seen the light of day and just generally showing off how great he is at making music for TV.

In addition to his Earwolf show, Howard Kremer has his hand in a wide variety of projects, including writing for TV, doing stand-up, recording special one-off podcasts like Earwolf's Analyze Fish, and rapping. Kremer recently released [...]
Scott Aukerman and Jeff Ullrich's comedy company Earwolf has partnered with the Video Podcast Network to start releasing live video episodes of its most popular shows. Here's Comedy Bang Bang's first video podcast, which was recorded at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend, with guests Casey Wilson, Michaela Watkins, Lake Bell, and Paul Scheer (as sleazebag Hollywood promoter Scott Jeffries). A live Earwolf show (either Who Charted?, How Did This Get Made?, or Comedy Bang Bang) will stream every Thursday at 6PM PST on Earwolf's YouTube channel. Watching podcasts is more exciting than watching radio shows but less exciting than watching TV shows.
