Podcasting continues to be a creative outlet for many tenured, up and coming or newbie comedians as accessing content continues to become easier and easier. Launchpad Digital Media recently announced the debut of its new on-stop-shop for comedy podcasts, PodcastOne.com. The site is already home to some of the largest and most popular podcasters such as Adam Carolla, Dennis Miller, Tom Green, and George Lopez just to name a few.
The website has a nice easy feel to it as comedy shows simply slide across the screen in clear, easy to see icons. What’s really neat is the automatic suggestions that PodcastOne provides from shows listeners add to their play list. Similar to Pandora, the service takes suggestions based on the listeners existing tastes while episodes are continuously updated for listening online or downloading for future use.
“What others have done with music, we are doing with the spoken word – helping listeners discover new programming based on their listening habits,” Norm Pattiz, Chairman of Launchpad Digital Media and Courtside Entertainment Group
PodcastOne is clearly a powerful promotional vehicle for any comedic program looking to grow an audience in a big way. They currently have a lineup that is top-notch and a service that seems to be seamless. I encourage you to take a look (and listen).
