On the “fistful of predictions” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer discuss our views on how the comedy industry and its relationship to social media will shift heading into 2013 and what implications that has on stand-up comedians.
We include the increasing importance of controlling your own online platform, how Hollywood has bought totally into Twitter even though they continue to be clueless on how to leverage it properly, why anyone with an audience has become a media outlet in the age of pageview journalism, and how crowdfunding will become a primary resource for performers with existing fan bases.
