Adam Carolla is now a podcaster

Maybe you heard the news about Adam Carolla's morning radio show getting cancelled.  Maybe you didn't.  Maybe you didn't know he had a morning radio show and was the Howard Stern "replacement".  Maybe you know all this and you don't care.  Maybe you don't even know who Adam Carolla is.  Maybe you're getting sick of me starting sentences with the word maybe.  

Well, I at least knew he had a radio show (one I never listened to), and I heard he got cancelled, but I didn't really care too much.  People like him land on his feet, and I wasn't exactly concerned for his livelihood.  I care now though, and that's because he's turned to podcasting, at least in the short term.  He released his first podcast yesterday, and the early results are excellent.  Check it out here:  Adam Carolla Podcast

My only real experience with Carolla is from his years on Loveline back when I was a teen who listened to that show.  He was the reason my girlfriend (now wife) and I tuned in back then, and he's still got "it".  Plus, on his podcast, he's truly uncensored, and there's just something about hearing him swear that's really nice.  He even comments on how enjoyable it is to drop f-bombs on the air in the first show.  I for one hope he sticks with the podcasting gig.  There are a few really solid celebrity podcasts out there for your listening enjoyment.  Kevin Smith has his SModcast show, which is generally extremely entertaining also.  There's just something about celebrities like this that aren't afraid to get personal with potentially millions of people that's very compelling to me.

He makes a few comments in the first show that seem a bit silly, and make it sound like he thinks he's a real high tech pioneer who's going to make this whole podcasting thing really huge and popular, but it seems his heart's in the right place, and I plan on listening to these things to see how it goes.  His first show has just over 1900 comments on it as of the time I'm writing this, so there's obviously interest in what he has to say, and I'm sure he could make money with it if that becomes his goal.  Another thing he mentioned in the first show is that he would appreciate it if we (the listening audience) would help promote hit show, so consider this my part of that effort.  Go check it out and report back.  I enjoy it, and you all know that I have impeccable taste, so what are you waiting for?


Oh yeah, and I'm aware I missed a day.  Sorry.  Maybe I'll make it up, maybe I won't.  My wife's telling me that I don't have time to do this blogging thing anyway, but I'm going to try to keep it up as long as I have something to say.  Oh, and the concert was excellent by the way, and Louisville seems to be an adorable little city that my wife and I would enjoy visiting again sometime when we have more time to look around.


  1. I love Carolla! I remember watching him on Love Lines, and the Man show with Kimmel, and then he did dancing with the stars and was hilarious on that! Offending both Mormons and Carrie Ann Inaba he's great!

    glad you had a good time in the ville, ya 3 hrs from me, you didn't even let me know my feelings are hurt Kris and I love going to concerts

  2. You know this blog is more important than what your wife says anyway so keep pounding away at the keyboards my feathered friend. I listened to his radio show a few times and I will see what I think of his podcast, but I am like Phats and loved The Man Show. I wish he could bring that back.

  3. Now now Matt, we all know that I do things for Nate that this blog will never do... but let's see, between and insane work schedule, guitar and two kids who miss their daddy... I stand by what I say lol

  4. Wow. I didn't know that Kevin Smith had a pod cast... thanks. Kevin Smith is great. Am not familiar with Carolla but may as well check that out too. Hey, the photo of the clouds is amazing. Very nice.

  5. I don't know who he is or even heard of him, but this sentence made my morning have the pleasure of a belly laugh! so thatks..."Maybe you're getting sick of me starting sentences with the word maybe."
