Some of you guys sound like old bitter crudgemuffins. Did it ever dawn on you that Drew has the best of both worlds right now? Why he would ever want to go back to radio is beyond me. He's building up his network, hell he's his own boss, he makes the rules, he works at home, he gets to swear, cuss, whatever without the FCC Gods interfering, he has a hell of a lot of listeners that he reaches. I'm sure you guys only wish you could have thought of something like this.
Because we all know swearing is cool. Look at the King of all media Howard Stern he swears and he's COOL,Yeah Right.

Interesting. What did he say? It's nice he reads the site--evidently frequently!

25 minutes of discussion?!?! Jesus. Then again, he and Mike used to spend that much time (or more) playing audio from lame MTV reality shows while providing their own commentary. Long duration segments like that are one reason I could never get into their WRIF show.
They were just reading posts and commenting on them. It was funny. I'm biased though, I'm a listener.

Question; If Drew is that great why is the show limited to Podcasts. Answer; Because he's a has-been.
Well, they must be making decent money with advertisers cause no one has lost their house after being gone from 105.1 radio for 3-4 years, in Drew's case, many houses. Same with Mark Wolters, he's done very well with his own podcast since he left WRIF in 2013. Podcasts are hugely popular and D&M get 100,000+ downloads/listens a day. Downloads/listens can be meaningless because some apps automatically download the podcast, and the person might not listen.

I don't know these people and their financial situation but the Podcast are not that lucrative obviously they're making money from other sources like flipping homes or whatever not from a dime a dozen Podcast.

I'm sure you know exactly how much they're making on the cast, huh?

For your information, the revenue stream is quite high. Enough to pay salaries. I don't think you quite grasp the impact podcasts have.

Bottom line you can't say you like the podcast or have anything good to say because someone(s) on here will poo poo it/shoot it down. No DIFFERENCE of opinions allowed!!

Apparently opinions on this board can only be one sided especially if you know ones financial situation, I guess my financial situation is still secret at least I hope so.

Admiring Drew's business acumen and on-air talent doesn't mean he's a hero of anyone. He's a good broadcaster. That doesn't mean he doesn't have faults or quirks that people don't like.

I guess you're right...can't say anything nice on here.

Talking about anything that is really about nothing on the radio for 3 hours is great radio, Sounds like Seinfeld a show about nothing, It doesn’t take much to amuse people today does it.

They sort of slammed just about every poster on that thread.
