The Daily Dot Interviews StoryFeller’s Lane Krarup & Pat Dean about the Austin Podcast Scene
Making new friends—that sense of intimacy is common to both standup comedy and podcasts. Listeners want to get to know their hosts. StoryFellers, a podcast started in 2013 by Pat Dean and Lane Krarup, is a good example of that. Every week, they interview a comedian who tells a story. Some are funny or embarrassing; others go a little deeper.
“The best stories to me are the ones where there is a little danger involved,” Krarup says. “You’re listening to the story and even though you know better, you’re really not sure how it’s going to turn out. Those kinds of stories are like the prequel movies of storytelling. You know they’re gonna make it out alive, but you’re still so wrapped up in the story you can’t be so sure.”
