    I am not convinced that it's even drugs anymore....I think the beetus is killing him. He will be losing a foot soon.

    listened to the first couple of minutes.

    carolla sounded mortified when artie said he was charging his fans $7/mo lol

    i'm no fan of carolla- in my book he's on the very bottom rung of "alright" - but at least he works hard to give his fans content (it seems) and i was able to listen to his podcast (which is actually popular) for FREE.

    Maybe he's mortified because he didn't think of it first? Honestly, despite all the shit we give Artie, a lot of us (myself included) have forked over the money to hear his dumpster fire of a podcast. I bet there's more than a few of these guys who wish they had been the one to charge first.

    Nah if charging for a podcast worked, a lot of bigger names than Artie would be doing it.

    That's silly, J. People have tried charging for podcasts forever. People like me never heard Gervais for that reason, WTF and Mohr partially charge for old episodes, etc. Carolla's not very funny but he absolutely "thought of" that possibility and dismissed it as a truly stupid way to build a large and loyal audience and make money. Artie is VERY far from being the first to be this cash grabby, though in fairness he is probably the first to put in so little effort.

    I didn't know any of that....don't listen to podcasts very often. Perhaps he was shocked at how many people were stupid enough to pay Artie. I have thought about it and I actually don't mind paying Artie. I like the fact that he doesn't have to spout off any stupid commercials....can say what he wants etc. I hope that he takes the training wheels off and actually embraces that a bit more.....we shall see.

    My guess is fellatio or one of the other "insiders" looked at the numbers howard gets than looked at how many twitter followers artie has and came up with a formula that they could use to make money quickly. I don't think this is a long term thing, just a dash for cash before artie becomes completely irrelevant.

    Don't get used to not having commercials. Artie's looking for the the big marble grab, the "breaks" that are inserted throughout the show are there for a reason.

    This. And Burr and Carolla and Proops etc. say whatever the fuck they want too. Advertisers always come and go. Stop buying Artie's warmed over bullshit.

    So Artie has made in through the first 10 or so shows without missing "Work?"

    Someone in this thread that subscribes will have to let us know the first time Artie doesn't do the show on a Mon-Thurs

    I know, right? Despite the horrors of superstorm Juno, he braved the elements to make it from his bedroom to his kitchen table on a terrible terrible snow day, when it took children as old as 8 to clear the mighty mounds of snow with beach shovels.

    Artie is a hero broadcaster.
