” The power of podcasting is pretty remarkable. It is such an amazing way to mobilize fans. It’s almost like they’re part of your family. They probably listen to you more than they listen to their own families. I know that’s true for me. So there is a real bond there. “


” Your average comedian doesn’t know the podcast universe, really. “


” My partner, Jeff Ullrich, and I always thought Earwolf was going to be big. There were a couple of studies before we launched saying podcasts were going to really grow. But I remember so many conversations at the beginning where people would say, ‘How are you going to make money with this?’ “

You’d never say Carl Reiner was the funniest dude on there, because he’s just teeing it up, but he knows what questions to ask to lead to great improv. “


” If you look at Earwolf, we’ve tried to have a really diverse stable of hosts. Even my show can get a little ‘dudey’ sometimes. “


” I have new bodyguards ever since I got a TV show. I didn’t know, but it’s a lot like becoming president. They tell you every single secret, like who shot JFK. When you have a TV show, they not only tell you who shot JFK, but they assign you bodyguards. “


” That’s one of the benefits of working with a smaller network like IFC. You’re awarded more trust, but trust that I really earned. “


” You see people who are disenfranchised elsewhere coming to Comic Con and making lifetime friends. I love seeing the outcasts of society all bonding together. “


” Podcasts feature comedians being as funny as they can be in a non-censored situation. It’s really akin to standup in a way. When you go see a comedian in standup, that is the most pure, unadulterated form of their art. “
