The Complete Guide to Everything is the podcast equivalent of Wikipedia, only way smarter and a little bit funnier. Hosts Tim Daniels and Tom Reynolds might not be experts on anything, but they know a little bit about everything and if you ask me, that makes a much better podcast.

It’s Week 3 of The Earwolf Challenge and we’re down to nine contestants who will compete this week over show content. Meaning? There must be a reason for someone to listen to your podcast, and some reasons are more compelling others. In today’s coaching session you’ll hear some contestants struggle to explain their podcast or wonder how they can consolidate the theme into two minutes. Listen tomorrow to hear their submissions with guest judges Paul F. Tompkins and Jesse Thorn.
