This is an awesome look into hater culture, Phish, fandoms, Analyze Phish (the podcast) and comedy-nerd darlings Scott Aukerman and Harris Wittels. Read it. It’s not that long.
It’s easy, cheap, and sometimes even fun to be mean. It’s a whole lot braver to be open and sincere, and to acknowledge that it’s perfectly okay to unapologetically love something even people you respect might find suspect. Accordingly, there’s a strangely moving vulnerability on both Wittels and Aukerman’s part throughout Analyze Phish. The podcast provides some fascinating insight on Phish, but also a neat look into Aukerman and Wittels’ friendship.
One of the major challenges of working in podcasting is simply that a lot of people don’t know what it is or why they would like it. Unfortunately, I do not have a good answer for those people. But I did make an Earwolf Starter Pack which includes one episode of all of our shows…
Super helpful! Especially if you’re interested in getting into comedy podcasts but just don’t know how.
In a mutual partnership, Earwolf will provide FunnyOrDie the means to put out podcasts, while FunnyOrDie will license and store Earwolf’s back catalog on their site. Comedy friends!
Because when two comedy website giants team up, everybody wins.
Paving the way in modern podcasting is Earwolf and now they’ve created the first reality competition podcast: a battle royal of podcasts.
