Our Podcast is More Popular Than We Are

So this is just weird…in only two episodes, "Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average)", is, as of this moment, the #6 "Comedy" audio podcast on iTunes. In the process, we’ve edged out You Look Nice Today, and are whupping the Kevin Smith/Scott Mosier SModcast‘s ass. Plus, we’re only one slot behind Ricky Gervais. Ricky-effing-Gervais, people! While this is all eminently cool (and we dance a celebratory Fishstick), it also seems like something’s amiss with the very fabric of the universe.

Nonetheless, thanks to everyone who’s been downloading and/or subscribing. We feel very much like the Oneders right now; look for us to be joining the Play-Tone roster of artists this Wednesday, and to break up late next week. But in the meantime, be sure to tell all your friends who the new popular kid in school is!

(NOTE: Our ranking may have, to some degree, been influenced by our being listed on the first page of the "What’s New" section of the iTunes Podcasts listing, since we’re so brand-new. We discount this fact, however, as it tends to kill our buzz.)

    Which is why I’m here…now it’s in your hands. So far so good.

    Awww, don’t feel so bad. I knew about you guys years before I decided to start commenting on your greatness. It is nice to know that other people are catching up, though. I’ll keep listening as long as you keep doin’ that — oh, nevermind.

    I’m excited to hear your song about the moon!

    Congrats on being “New and Notable” on itunes. Now that you are the popular kids, are we not allowed to sit at the same lunch table, or talk to you in the hallway?

    On a side note, “You Suck at Photoshop” is also now a (video) podcast. Since Storm is on a Photoshop kick, you might want to check it out. We pass the new eps. around the graphics dept. whenever they come out.

    Okay, I have listened to all three shows and I must say that they are improving. Keep moving forward, I am enjoying them. As for a “The Moon” song… looking forward to hearing what you come up with.

    “New and notable” probably had something to do with it, but it’s not everything! I hadn’t seen you guys since I moved away from DC 2 years ago, but I saw you in iTunes and I’m back on board.

    Could also be “word of mouth” too. I know my mouth has many words coming out of it, and some of them are about music.
