“I’m excited to finally dip my toe into making podcasts, which were invented about three years ago, as far as the public knows,” said Aukerman, who also co-founded Earwolf — the network that will continue to distribute recent, ad-supported episodes of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast free for listeners.

Comedy Bang! Bang! World is co-founded by Brett Morris, who will be executive producing the programming along with Aukerman. Morris previously led production at Earwolf.

Subscribers can choose from two different pricing tiers with various benefits: the Legacy tier at $4 per month, or Maximus at $7 per month. And they’ll get exclusive access to the following programming and benefits, depending on the subscription tier:

“At Acast, we’re driven to help all creators find their audience, and deepen their relationship with listeners and fans — and that means making their content available widely, as part of the open podcasting ecosystem,” said Rebecca Steinberg, Director of Development at Acast. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to bring Comedy Bang! Bang!’s incredible podcasts to more people than ever before.”

Acast champions the open ecosystem, which allows listeners to easily access content across whichever podcast platform they choose. Rather than a closed model where content is exclusive to a specific platform, the open ecosystem prioritizes accessibility for listeners and gives creators the largest opportunity to find an audience.

Comedy Bang! Bang! World will continue to expand with new series, benefits and content, featuring established and up-and-coming comedic talent.
