It's not about time. It's autonomous control. He finally has a platform that's practically custom built for him. No way would he go back to a format structured around a schedule setup by a program director, have to answer to a guy in a suit, and most importantly not cussing. I'm just surprised the podcasts are doing well enough for him to afford NOT to take the deal. Good for him.

That's a very good point. I guess it would depend on how much freedom and control he could work into a contract.

I would be curious how much he pulls in on his Podcasts. The TWIT network does fairly well with all it's shows and it's enough for Leo to have a staff.

It HAS to do well to support the mini network he has going...I can think of 4-5 podcasts that are run under the Ace Broadcasting Network umbrella, and his own show is a consistent Top 10 overall podcast.

He was on Howard Stern a few months ago and confirmed that, at that point, the podcasts were doing well and finally able to support him and his staff.

Plus, he has his live shows and book/audiobook's providing an income as well.

Also has a car show on Speed Channel in production.

I didn't realize he had that many podcast going under his own network. I know the TWIT network is the largest, but he can't be that far behind. Good for him.

I really enjoy Stop Podcasting Yourself. I find myself laughing at this one a lot more than the other comedy podcast i've listened to.

Jay Mohr has a weekly podcast that's hilarious. If you want to try one out, I suggest episode 7. http://smodcast.com/channels/mohr-stories/

Thought I'd bring this one back from the dead:

In addition to the previously mentioned podcasts like Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and Common Sense, WTF with Marc Maron, All Songs Considered, I also listen to the Ricky Gervais podcasts (not really updated anymore, but the first season he did was hilarious) and Uhh Yeah Dude, which I never miss and is hilarious (WARNING: may contain mature themes and adult language):

I've added the Nick and Artie Show to the occasional rotation. Comedians Nick DiPaolo and Artie Lange discuss sports. I just miss hearing Artie's voice...wish he was back on Stern.

Ever since getting into Breaking Bad, I found their official podcasts. Awesome insight into the making and creation of that show...all the producers, directors, actors appear on there and really seem to enjoy doing it.

The Bryan Callen show podcast on Deathsquad is good, similar vibe to the Jay Mohr podcast. He also does a 10min podcast with Chris D'elia and Will Sasso.

Pete Holmes' You Made It Weird is good for comedy nerds, kinda like a Marc Maron lite. The recent Fitzdog episodes on both Pete Holmes and Marc Maron were great.

Aisha Tyler's is worth checking out too, but I don't find her guests very interesting oftentimes.
