Would you be surprised to learn that scientists are learning how to fight COVID-19 from the video game World of Warcraft?

Wild ‘Til 9 is the next podcast to premiere in the lineup and is set to launch tomorrow, August 11. What do you get when a DIY influencer dates an ex-frat-president tech mogul? Honestly we’re not really sure either, but we’re all about to find out together. Hosted by Lauren Riihimaki (LaurDIY) and boyfriend, Jeremy Lewis, Wild ’Til 9 is about relationships, spotting the red flags and giving the green lights, and the lifestyle in which this polar opposite couple found themselves.

The Laugh Button Podcasts Partnership
Studio71 has also become the exclusive monetization and distribution partner for The Laugh Button Podcasts. The comedy hub produces podcasts with some of the top comedians in the world including Jim Norton’s The Chip Chipperson Podacast, Robert Kelly’s You Know What Dude, Joe List’s Mindful Metal Jacket, and, their latest installment, Lewis Black’s Rantcast. In Rantcast, Black channels his anger in a way only a man who has devoted his entire life to ranting can do. The tirades are sometimes big. They are sometimes small. But when filtered through the comedic mind of Black in a live environment, they are always hilarious.
“We’re really excited about our partnership with Studio71, it gives The Laugh Button’s podcast arm access to top notch experts in the field and allows us to better support our growing roster of stellar talent,” said Matt Kleinschmidt, Editor-In-Chief of The Laugh Button.
“We’re excited to bring our suite of resources to The Laugh Button Podcasts,” added Perlstein.
This new slate and strategic partnership follows the launch of Bob Saget’s Here for You in April, Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast welcoming Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, as a guest in June and making the Top 15 on Apple Podcasts, and 10 of Studio71’s podcasts being featured in the top 100 on Spotify’s new podcast charts.
