On the “cleansing the palette” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer address feedback from the ‘social media is bullshit’ debate, follow up on the core points comedians should take out of the argument, why you need to focus on concepts not tools, and generally dispel the myth of ‘all you need to do is X’ whether it be online or offline.
In addition, we discuss getting yourself out there, putting yourself in the position to get opportunities, leveraging press for credibility and manufacturing social proof. Finally, Jordan gives the scold to end all scolds which identifies procrastination, laziness and ego as the over-arching theme and root cause of his critical nature towards what comics say and do.
