A new podcast with two comedic legends launched this week: PO’d Cast with Dennis Miller and Adam Carolla.
In the episode entitled “Welcome,” Dennis explains how he got his start in comedy, while Adam discusses being a dad to twins.
As a podcaster, what really appealed to me was hearing Dennis and Adam talk about the format of podcasting. Dennis revealed, “I talked to Larry Miller and asked him what it’s like and he said, You have to go in and know that you can’t map it all out and just start having a conversation. Then it clicks in that you don’t have to have everything all mapped out, and you’ll find it amazingly cathartic. This feels like what I use to pay a shrink $300 an hour for – except we’re getting paid.”
Adam said, ‘This medium is beautiful for people who want to communicate, people who want to share ideas, and people who want to talk. You won’t find this anywhere else. It’s not late night television; it’s not AM radio, it’s just NOT. It’s not that there is anything wrong with that. Their metronome is set at a much different pace, and it has to because of their format.”
Look for both Adam Carolla and Dennis Miller at NMX. Adam is participating in a keynote with Podcast One’s Norm Pattiz, while Dennis is co-hosting the 10th Annual Podcast Awards with Emily Morse.
