    Since this is a Stern Forum I think it's easy to assume many here are into Podcasts. I'm curious how many of you actually subscribe to shows. After all Artie and Anthony both are counting on their fans to support them instead of using advertisers.

    I'm right now giving money to Artie again (at the very least to hear him slam Stuttering John http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/art...-on-the-latest-episode-of-his-podcast.190630/ ) as well as Nick DiPaolo who I think is hilarious and updates at a great rate. I didn't find myself listening to Cumia enough to warrant paying him but I'd resub if I heard about a really good episode.

    I listen to a lot of Podcasts now while driving to around, a lot of them tout Subscriber Episodes or just outright beg for donations so I'm wondering if they're actually getting a decent amount of money from people.

    There are too many great free ones to justify to pay for any, imho.

    No - some have ads in the form of live reads/discount codes where they get a cut of sales, which I can live with - a few of them also ask but don't require folks to donate $$ to listen to the podcasts.

    Are you sure you don't want a Wolf Plus account which gives you access to every single one of Marc Maron's snoozefests and exclusive content from "comedians" you couldn't pick out of a line-up?

    I barely listen to podcasts as most of them suck.

    The Nerdist does get some good guests.

    I pay for Nick Dip's podcast.......and Midnight In The Desert (show used to be hosted by Art Bell). It's not the same without Art but I still enjoy it.

    99% of podcasts are garbage. A lot of C and D list comics laughing at their own inside jokes.

    I don't pay for movies, music, cable, or books.

    Why would I pay for podcasts?

    Artie's are all on youtube because he's too lazy to do anything about it. I think I'm going to start paying for cumias show. I like him and gavin mcinnes. They have a real product that isn't some shity podcast.

    I really liked it when he started. Do you know what happened with the court thing? Was he able to keep his CCW?
