The short-lived podcast was put “on hiatus” in March after a mere six-episodes. Podcast One had hoped to have it back on by July, but it never panned out. That temporary hiatus is now a permanent one, TheWrap has learned.
The good news is that the show’s cancellation opened the door for Carolla to team up with friend and attorney Mark Geragos for “Reasonable Doubt,” which TheWrap exclusively reported on in June. The new offering has been a nice hit for the podcaster and his marketing company.
On Wednesday, Carolla re-upped with Podcast One for five more years. As of late, however, the super-busy podcast king has expressed interest in slowing down his busy schedule. He’s also been hard at work shooting and promoting indie rom-com “Road Hard,” as well as Paul Newman documentary “Winning.”
Individual reps for Carolla and Miller did not immediately get back to TheWrap with a comment.
The now-defunct audio show, formerly called “PO’d,” debuted Saturday, Jan. 17 on PodcastOne, the leader in advertiser-supported, on-demand digital audio. PodcastOne carries more than 200 programs that are downloaded over 120 million times monthly, according to the company.
Later dubbed “PO’dcast,” the show saw its two hosts working together remotely. On several occasions, Miller jetted before Carolla officially closed the show. At other moments, there were technical issues with their connection.
Carolla Digital boats the uber-popular “Adam Carolla Show,” as well as “The Adam and Drew Show,” “Ace on the House,” “CarCast,” “The Dr. Drew Podcast,” “For Crying Out Loud,” “Penn’s Sunday School,” “Take a Knee,” “The Great Love Debate,” “Hammer and Nails,” “10th Ave. Podcast” and “Resume.”
