    Pretty good money for a ten foot commute and usually eight hours of work a week max.

    To be honest......I never in a million years thought he would last a year.....and do 183 episodes.....granted with the shitty ones taken out of the equation it comes down to about 60.....still.....I'm shocked. If I was one of the "regulars" and found out that he was making that much, I would be quite irritated that he wasn't paying me. Perhaps that is the real reason why Fat Cotton, Slow Matarese and Edgar Winter aren't on hardly at all anymore?

    Probably more to do with availability but ya, there might be something there. P.s. Cotton sucks.

    the podcast has been way better with them gone,but I don't understand why twitchels is still on.Yesterday's podcast was ridiculous,just way over the top with his stupid fucking noises.At one point Artie tells Falato to shut his mic off.It was a shitty podcast to finish the year.

    Bochetti is awesome. His relationship with Pruseman is hilarious. All the rest suck minus that Ryan guy. He's pretty funny

    I sent him a PM on the Twatter about Twitchels. Will be interesting to see if I get a response.

    $180k? I wonder why it costs so much to do the show?

    Falato produces it.. Flippin edits it..

    I suppose he pays his web people to maintain the site. And I suppose bandwidth costs a little bit.

    Plus, there's his own salary..

    Was wondering that too, trying to add it up in my head.

    -Falato

    -Website/payment processing

    -Other tech guy ( https://twitter.com/Edzila )

    -Legal/Attorney fees

    -"Web Presence" -Twitter, Facebook promo person

    -Does he pay Flippin?

    -?

    The web paywall people are taking a cut. I know this because I was one of the first subscribers and there was an issue with payment and I got into a conversation with the guy who made the paywall about his business model.

    That is amazing to be honest.

    I know Anthony when he first started had something like 20,000 subs.

    There is nothing remotely funny or interesting about Bochetti or his "relationship" with some dumb cunt comic.

    Which begs the question, would you rather have 9000 superfans paying $7 each a month or have 100,000 fans and get guests like Obama and invited on "Dancing With the Stars" and get book deals, but have to read ads for Squatty Potty and Stamps.com?

    I think I'd rather have the 9000 direct payers.

    Send me the 100,000 fans. I would just tell Obamallah to stay the fuck away from my show, no to Dancing With the Stars and I would read any ad they wanted me too as long as I was compensated for it
    Of course I wouldn't have that heroin/pill/coke habit sooooooo? Yeh give me the 100,000 fans :D

    I was thinking the same thing. No way Artie admits he only has 900 subscribers or whatever lower number he has

    Hahaha.

    Chris Cotton never said anything funny but didn't get in the way of the conversation so I'm surprised that he hasn't been on. Does anybody know or have some sort of speculation? It seemed like Artie could get away with racist commentary with Cotton around and I'm sure Artie wasn't paying him so it would sound like his "departure"? would be his decision, not Artie's/Dan's. Maybe Artie never got past paying to bring up Cotton to the Montreal comedy fesitval only to have Cotton clam up and awkwardly spit out a twitter handle plug when he was onstage for all to see, along with Howie Mandell.

    Probably Cotton is a bit lazy but also can't afford to work for free. The real number of listeners is probably 2000, so the appearances don't help him get people to his standup shows. But longterm, being on Artie's show would probably help him make connections.

    According to what Artie says, Chris is saying he's working in Philly. Apparently on a script of some kind. In other news, who gives a fuck about Chris Cotton.
