The Little Dum Dum Club's Tommy Dassalo and Karl Chandler tell Dan Ilic why podcasting suits them.
"The beauty of podcasting is you can do it whenever you want, and then people have got access to it whenever they want," Karl Chandler tells Dan Ilic.
Their inspiration, or podfather, is none other than British comedian Ricky Gervais, who they say popularised the early stages of the format.
"We pay a daily thanks to the spiritual king of podcasting Ricky Gervais, he sort of got in on the bottom floor," Tommy Dassalo says.
"A lot of people wouldn't know about podcasts in Australia without those figureheads like Ricky Gervais and even Wil Anderson," Karl Chandler adds.
So what should we be listening to?
The podcast that currently have everyone talking is Serial, which has faithfuls tuning in to the millions to hear the next instalment into the real life murder investigation of 18 year old student Hae Min Lee.
If you're looking for a career in stand up comedy, Karl and Tommy recommend tuning into WTF with Marc Marron, which features the comedian interviewing other comedians.
"It's the bible of comedy, if you're starting in stand up you can listen to all the greats talk about their process and how they started, " Chandler notes.
The King of Australian podcasting is undoubtedly ABC favourite Richard Fidler and his Conversations program. His in-depth conversations with guests attracts on average one million downloads a month.
Other Australians podcasters with a faithful audience are The Sweetest Plum podcasters Declan Fay and Nick Maxwell, Wil Anderson and Charlie Claussen with TOFOP, Sleek Geeks Dr Karl and Adam Spencer, and Darwin's outback treasure Tales from the Tinny.
