“My parents had a car for their dog,” says podcaster


They saw each other again a few months later at a party.

North said his roommate warned him he wouldn’t like Hanson “because he’s a little posh.” The roommate also gave Hanson a similar warning, telling him that North was “a little rough around the edges.”

But they found common ground, helped – they say – by a shared sense of humor.

In 2018, they launched their podcast. Both say they’ve never sexted their bosses, despite the podcast’s title. “I’ve always been independent, I should have been sexting myself,” Hanson said.

But the idea behind it was to encourage listeners to share their problems, to which the duo then tries to offer solutions.

They face dilemmas like what to do if you’ve inadvertently shared sex toys with family members, but also general etiquette questions, like whether it’s OK to delete your ex from social media.

Today, the podcast has more than three million downloads per month.

Bringing it to theaters is an “interesting” step, says Joseph Evans, an analyst at media research firm Enders Analysis.

“Podcasts continue to grow, in terms of popularity, and now we’re seeing these new innovations – first there were live streams, and now they’re coming to cinemas too,” he told BBC News .

Evans said you can see why a cinema format might work. “Podcasters are a very community-oriented medium, so with theaters you get a community experience, you’re with the fans at the same time.”

But he added: “For many, the appeal of a live event is being in the same room as the podcasters, so we’ll see if this new format works.”
