Welcome to The Earwolf Challenge, Americas first reality podcast! For the next ten weeks Matt Besser and Engineer Frank will help us find the next Earwolf podcast, but for now lets just get to know our competitors. Meet The Fort Podcast where comedians Mike, Kevin and Ed discuss girls and games and do sketches with comedian guests. Hear Bob and Dan of the aptly named Bob and Dan Cast and their request to be the underdog of the contest. Lastly, we hear from The Complete Guide to Everything, the podcast intent on putting Wikipedia out of business. We have seven more contestants to meet so stick around for the next two days and head to the forums to tell us what you think so far!

Great concept! I cannot wait to see how well 'T and T' (TCGTE) does. Good luck to all, and thanks again to Earwolf for making my work day, more enjoyable.

My #1 goal is to not come off as a douche bag!

So sad I missed out on this, curse you slow emails, but glad its underway.
Maybe next time I'll pay enough attention to be able to get Lou Reads the Internet for YOU! into the line up!

Good luck to all the contestants. You'll need it!

Thanks, everyone! Glad you're all enjoying it. This show is about five months in the making and I can't believe it's already released. Glad it's not shitty!

I take issue with it being called the first "reality podcast." Not all reality shows are based on a competition (in fact, I would argue that shows like American Idol and Survivor are more like game shows). Most podcasts are already reality podcasts because they are not scripted so I was rather confused when I first heard the premise of the Earwolf Challenge.

Other than that nearly pointless annoyance, I really liked the show. It's really interesting to hear what other people think makes a good podcast.

This was an awesome surprise, for some reason I thought we wouldn't be hearing this until September.

Reality show, huh? I wonder if there will be any catfights between boozed up whores? Although these are podcasts so I mainly expect sweaty men couped up in dark room.

Bob and Dan Cast was probably my favorite out of that bunch, the Emma Stone bit got a pretty good laugh out of me.

Really digging the show and am looking forward to more great shows to listen to (this one and some of the contestants shows!).

I was under the impression that the competitors would come from completely off the radar. I've listened to a couple of these podcasts already. I have my favorites as a result. I am curious about some of the challenges they will have to go through later.

Loving the show! T+T came off great! The Bob and Dan cast was also good, but it was brought down on account of Dan's douche baggery. Try harder next time Dan.

But for serious, it's all sounding great, and I'm really getting into it.

(Plz can we get PFT to write the recap?)
