We figure we can better use the time producing and researching more content for you, rather than chasing sponsors and advertisers. Space Nuts is a completely independent podcast and we receive no funds from any large corporations, Government grants etc. We rely on providing the best content we can for our listeners, but we still have bills to pay every month in order to keep the lights on. So, help reach our first goal of 1,000 subscribers at which point we’ll become financially viable….and we can stop chasing advertisers.

Bob Saget's Here For You

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
