    Episode 50 — Chris Fealy of Nerdist

    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. -Erik

    What is like the Wolf Den?

    Answering my own question... The New Media Show is pretty damn good and covers similar topics/guests as Wolf's Den. It may seem in poor taste to post about a non-Earwolf "competitor" to Wolf's Den, but I don't think it takes away from WD in any way. And there's just not enough WD content to go around. Eagerly awaiting Jeff's next episode. -Erik

    Episode 49 — The Mood of Podcasting

    I'm really happy Wolf's Den came back. I haven't been able to find any other show like it. I appreciate Jeff's personality a lot. He's tactful and polite, but also insistent on seeing things truthfully. The guests are really great. I've watched every show, some twice.

    Episode 95 — Math

    First time listener. I was intrigued by the topics and mixing comedy in with discussion, so I thought I'd give it a try. But I thought the guest was treated rudely, and it made me not want to listen further. Interrupting him repeatedly with a Donald Trump impersonation a few times was a little funny, but it was taken too far. And then immediately after that, chattering away while the guest was talking. In general you gave the impression you were bored with him.

    What is like the Wolf Den?

    Okay, I really do miss the Wolf Den. Why? It's like the missing link between small-time hobby podcasting and Hollywood-style entertainment biz. There's a bunch of podcasting shows about podcasting, but they cover a lot of bread-and-butter topics, like... where should I host my files? what microphone should I get? What Jeff is doing with Earwolf defies being put into reproducible advice that can be given to other people making podcasts. But here and there, I would catch a glimmer of something that seemed important--like it might be useful to me. For example, the Eardrop concept made me think about ways I could incorporate user-submitted audio into my show. Or for another example, I heard a guest on WD talking about SuperEgo's studio and how they put together content with a mix of script and improvisation. And it inspired my own thoughts on what I wanted to do. This kind of high-end, conceptual look at podcasting is not there on shows like School of Podcasting, Podcast Answer Man, Audacity to Podcast, or Art of Podcasting. Although I like a lot of these shows, and they still have things to teach me, they end up feeling a little mundane and hand-holdy. A lot of reassuring talk about how easy it is to start podcasting, set up a wordpress page, and fill in the proper ID3 tags on your MP3. So with all respect due to Jeff and Wolf Den and then even a little bit more respect, what else is out there that is like Wolf Den that I can listen to? I only ask because WD is laying dormant. -Erik
