Josh and Scott find themselves performing live at PodSlam15, a wrestling-themed podcasting marathon benefiting children with cancer. Since it makes little sense for them to be there, the co-hosts struggle to figure out what to talk about, and eventually get into a physical altercation on stage. You can still donate at givetochildrens.org/PodSlam15!
As Season 2 draws to its horrifying conclusion, the co-hosts must stare into the eye of the abyss and, once and for all, determine if they actually have any listeners. Also covered: a joke about nuns, Nazi brooches, and much more.
For the first time ever, the co-hosts podcast together in person. Will it actually make a difference? And will they get to entertain a huge studio audience in Josh's terrifying basement? Plus: a surprise guest who hates the show!
The boys survey their work to date and how it compares against other podcasts, then realize they still don't have anything to show for it. Scott may have a topic, but it's just terrible. Plus: is Josh actually going insane?
Josh thinks he finally has a direction for the show, but Scott has other ideas: gaining popularity and sponsors by talking about controversy. The co-hosts try discussing recent current events from a variety of perspectives. Interesting!
Still without a topic, the co-hosts decide to check their phone hotline for listener feedback, in hopes that it will tell them how to improve the show/confirm that the show is perfect. Also covered: is lying on a podcast a federal crime?
After performing extensive research, Josh realizes that explicit podcasts are popular. But Scott has a realization of his own: he is now a perfect gentleman. Now, it's up to Josh to finally figure out a horrible show topic for popularity and money.
Josh's latest theory is that if only the show had more length, it would be more satisfying to advertisers. Scott points out that lengthening the show would require a show topic of some kind. The co-hosts brainstorm. Plus: is Josh dead?
In the continued absence of advertisers, the co-hosts discuss monetizing the show by offering bonus content of some kind. Also covered: inappropriate parts of Scott's body, Mac & Me, the true key to Josh's happiness, and more.
Could a third co-host dramatically improve the show's fortunes by giving it an actual purpose and sponsors? Josh and Scott debate this with special guest/unsuspecting co-host candidate Kevin Bartini. It does not go very well.
The co-hosts discuss, again, why they're making this podcast, what a podcast is, and how they're able to be on the Internet. Also covered: how getting rich from the podcast is a better idea than mining for precious metals.
