Never Miss An Episode

| 2 comments

More than 95% of our listeners use iTunes to download their podcasts. Mostly this is great - iTunes is a nice piece of software, it's ubiquitous, it's free. There is, however, one small annoyance: if like most people you don't check for new podcasts every day, the default settings in iTunes mean you'll miss out on episodes of our shows.

The default on iTunes is to download only the latest episode of a podcast you're subscribed to. For a show like ours, that frequently puts out a few shorter episodes a week, this means as many as 25% of our listeners miss each episode. This happens when we put out episodes relatively close together, and listeners only automatically download the most recent.

Luckily, the solution is easy. Do this, and you'll never miss an episode again.

First, open iTunes, and click on your podcast library in the left-hand bar.

Second, click on "Settings" at the bottom of the podcast library.

From the pull-down menu next to "When new episodes are available," choose "Download all."

That way, if we put out episodes on consecutive days (as we just did), you won't miss the first one.

Jon Hamm Visits Never Not Funny

| 0 comments

Our friends at the wonderful comedy podcast Never Not Funny were visited last week by their good friend Jon Hamm. When he's not being nominated for Emmy awards, Hamm has a been a long-time friend of the Los Angeles comedy community, and he's a very funny fellow. To mark the occaision, Never Not Funny decided to release the show for free (they usually charge a little less than a dollar an episode). I look forward to Never Not Funny every week, and this is a great chance to give a great show a great listen.

You can download the show directly from this link. Visit Pardcast.com to subscribe and get the other two dozen or so great episodes from this season for twenty bucks.

Adam Carolla

Adam Carolla is a radio and television personality, writer and actor. He hosted or co-hosted The Man Show, The Adam Carolla Show, Too Late with Adam Carolla, and Loveline. He now hosts The Adam Carolla Podcast, one of the internet's most popular. He also co-wrote and starred in the feature film The Hammer.

Carolla grew up in Southern California's San Fernando Valley. After dropping out of Community College, he worked for ten years as a laborer, carpenter and boxing trainer. Having given himself until he was 30 to find a job that used his mind and not his body, he got his first break at 29. Los Angeles radio powerhouse KROQ was having a promotional boxing match, and looking for trainers. Carolla headed to the station, where he was paired with Jimmy Kimmel, who became his colleague and friend.

Carolla talks with us about growing up in an apathetic family, how he found success, and balancing independence with career imperatives.

Jordan and I had a blast heading over to Adam Carolla's garage, checking out his vintage race cars and recording a podcast. Both Jordan and I think Carolla is an exceptionally gifted comic mind and a big asset to the world of podcasting.

I had a blast last night recording an episode of Comedy & Everything Else. Stef and Jimmy were gracious hosts and we had a lot of fun talking about everything from President Obama to Queen Latifah. If you have the stomach for two and a half hours of me running my mouth, you should check it out.

This trumps the heck out of me and Jordan's arguments about El Cucuy and El Piolin. Nick Kroll is amazing.

Eddie Pepitone on WTF

A month or so ago, I went and did Marc Maron's WTF at the UCB Theater. It was a lot of fun, and maybe the most fun was Eddie Pepitone's profane, meandering rant on the Balloon Boy and Parks and Recreation and so on.

Very NSFW.
