Announcer Brian Clark joins America's Favorite Talk Show Host (that's Art) to analyze the King of All Media's assertion that "Podcasts are for losers!"

Art and Brian have toiled in both broadcast radio and podcasting, and they compare their firsthand experience to what Howard Stern describes. Is it true that to earn your wings as a broadcaster you need to go to terrestrial radio? Are the opportunities even there anymore? Or is terrestrial radio in its twilight? We discuss! 53 minutes.

Art's comments: "If you're looking for a lot of screaming and name calling, 1995 shock radio style, then you're in the wrong place. If you want to hear a real conversation about the future of radio vs. the future of podcasting, then you're in the right place.

"When I heard Stern's 'podcasting is for losers' rant, I just had to weigh in with my experience of trying to break into terrestrial radio vs. what I've been able to do with podcasting. And Brian Clark was a natural choice to join in, since he knows more about the nuts and bolts of radio than I do.

"One listen to this episode should convince anyone, even Howard Stern, that podcasting is NOT for losers! No way!"
