Jeff Ullrich: Scratching An Itch To Stay Sustainable In Podcasting
Starting off in the right direction isn’t always easy, but timing and dedication help. Founder of Midroll Media and co-founder of Earwolf Podcasts, Jeff Ullrich, stumbled on a career path in a field that wasn’t yet plowed.

Jeff Ullrich is the chairman for Midroll Media, housing Earwolf and Wolfpop podcast networks. The team at Midroll Media work with podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! and WTF with Marc Maron to find advertisers suitable for original content. This episode of the Skate To Create skateboarding podcast is about solving problems in a creative manner, rather than waiting around.
