It's on the Pardon My Take podcast from Wednesday.
Thanks, listening now.
Barstool announces Barstool Gold, a subscription service for premium content for $1 and $2/wk tiers. None of the existing content is going behind the paywall, all new bonus stuff is. Sounds like it's directed by Chernin to provide them a guaranteed revenue stream to avoid being at the whims of their ad sponsors.
I'll be very interested to see if this works out as a business model.
I'm not really seeing the value personally. I usually listen to podcasts at work or while exercising. I'm sure watching PMT would be funny, but I don't have 3+ hours a week to watch something like that. It's perfect in audio format.
It’s extra content. Basically the same thing some podcasters are doing with Patreon and probably where things are heading in podcasting, at least successful podcasting, in general.
I would like to see the documentary, actually. But other than that, there's not much else. AMA's from the personalities? Pass. Skype rundowns? No thanks. I enjoy the podcasts because I can listen to them in the car or when I'm out and about. If I have time to sit and watch something, I can't imagine it would be a podcast.
I'll be anxious to see how smoothly this rolls out and what the numbers look like.
Portnoy shocked, SHOCKED, to learn that his site attracts less than the finest people:
Im not a fan of the majority of their stuff, but those comment sections were other level bad. That’s certainly an improvement, but the deadspin article does raise the valid point that maybe Portnoy and crew should wonder why the scum that littered their comments section felt comfortable at their site.
