Episode 123 - The "All New" Podcast "Revolution"

The podcast is back, ready to talk straight smack about internet people making videos without much substance. Chad doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings but it's time to delineate between what's eye candy and what's a full feast. Also: MEGAN ELLISON is doing her best to keep ANNAPURNA PICTURES out of bankruptcy; and VARIETY'S cover story of Conan O'Brien "revolutionizing" podcasting is...so far from the truth.

Episode 100 - Let's Rethink That

Chad returns to the futon for this: a very special episode of The Constitutionals EPISODE 100! Yes. There are 100 of these things — each worse than the last. But Chad’s trying really hard, he promises. Before he gets to the topics, our host talks about a sudden death in his friend circle. Then he talks about COMEDY CENTRAL’s new YouTube channel; ANNAPURNA PICTURES losing money on every movie it put out in 2018 except for one; the reselling of digital music; SPOTIFY’s big issue with royalty increases and the streamer’s antitrust case in the EU against APPLE.
