Jason's Failed Podcast

Standup comedian, Jason Salmon has had a ton of podcast ideas over the years...and all of them have failed. That's when he realized his true gift...failure.He's not afraid of it, and now he's got a podcast about it. Jason's Failed Podcast is a a sort of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style twist on the comedy podcast, where the audience and the guests get input in what the podcast will be about. It might spawn more episodes or even brand new podcasts, but he's willing to try anything - no matter how insane. Listeners can email at JasonsFailedPodcast@gmail.com to offer suggestions, ask questions, or give feedback and they get to be part of the show.And even if this fails...it will just mean that Jason picked the perfect title.
