Since anyone can record a podcast, you’d think it would be a democratized medium where people left out of traditional broadcasting could find a voice. So why is it still male-dominated? More women are starting to get behind the mic, but the change is slow, and along with the championing of women in this newer media space also comes the criticism. I talk to two podcasters, Geno Bisconte (host of “In Hot Water”) and Stacey Prussman (host of “The Stacey Prussman Hour”), also both former regulars on the Artie Lange podcast, on what it takes to make it in the world of podcasting.
How much can a viral video change your life? And once you find viral success, how do you capitalize off of it? Today I talked to two comedians who’ve had videos go viral: Lauren O’Brien ("Celebrities sitting in traffic”), and Vic Dibitetto ("Bread and Milk"), about their different experiences in this area. How fast and extreme were the effects? Did it change how they moved forward with their career? We take a look at the aftermath of the viral phenomenon and how it’s different for men and women.
