Scott Aukerman and Chris Bannon
The Wolf Den #105 May 12, 2016
Adam gets Scott Aukerman in the guest chair for the first time as host of “The Wolf Den,” along with Chris Bannon, Midroll Media’s chief content officer, to talk about the state of Earwolf and Howl. Hear Scott do his best Paul Scheer impression as he recalls the Christmas party where Paul pitched his idea for “How Did This Get Made?” and reflects on the seven-year journey of building Earwolf. Then Chris and Scott explain why the Wolfpop network was retired–with most of the shows joining Earwolf–and how growing Earwolf beyond the bounds of comedy was actually part of the original vision for the network. Scott talks about the CBB Live Tour—going on now—and why he agreed to release the recordings on Howl Premium, which leads to a wider discussion about Howl and the creative advantages of having a subscription platform. Finally, Chris spills the beans on some upcoming Howl Original shows.
