My podcast: Breaking Down Bits
I'm Brian Gendron, an entrepreneur and a standup comedian. I created Breaking Down Bits as a platform to learn about writing and performing standup comedy by interviewing famous comedians about their process. As a newer comedian I love when I would get to talk with professional comedians when they had shows in my city, but in the pandemic those opportunities dried up. But then I got thinking, many of these comedians and actors are not able to work right now so they probably have more time than ever and I bet If I just ask they'd be willing to give up an hour to talk with us... And it worked, we built a great lineup of famous comedians and have now started building a community of newer comedians that want to hear their advice.

How Audry helped me grow
My co-creator and co-host, Drew Jordan, is another newer comedian in my city (Houston). He has a lot of talents in video editing and a background in radio. Finding guests has been just using social media and their professional websites to contact comedians. Audry made it easier to reach out to several cross-promotion partners and we even found some new fans of the show.
