General manager of Nerdist Industries and all around good guy Chris Fealy is here to squash any thoughts of there being any sort of Nerdist vs. Earwolf rivalry. He joins Jeff to discuss expanding a podcast network into different mediums which include television,  a YouTube channel, a live performance space behind a comic book shop, and possibly airplanes. Chris also shares the importance of curating shows that maintain a nerdy sensibility, gives his thoughts on the The Mid Roll, and offers Jeff some tips for his 30 day sabbatical.

Does Hardwick know about this? Christ, I hope no-one dies as a result of your actions, Earwolf.

Awesome episode. It's great to hear that Earwolf has so many new things in development, but disheartening (pun intended) to learn that it's slowly killing Jeff. Enjoy your sabbatical, sir.

Please don't die Jeff. Transitioning from a high paced never ending workload down to an average one, or in your case hopefully next to none, is a very odd thing (But a good thing). And at first you'll kind of find it hard to think of what to do with your free time; and at times the things you do will simply feel 'unproductive'. But revel in that slowness, take advantage of the fact that you can just spend time thinking of things your schedule never allows for in the busy times. Moving your head out of it's task oriented mode is liberating. Earwolf will survive. Take the time to make sure you do to.

Listened to this episode twice. Jeff, it's great to have you doing Wolf's Den again, and I hope you will find the right balance for yourself.
