inThirty 61: Fark the News

Warning: this episode caused inThirty to shred its CLEAN tag on iTunes.

The uncontested, despotic, chief commander of the snarkiest site on the internet,, joins us for episode 61 of inThirty. Drew Curtis sits in his maroon-leather-perfect-for-a-super-villain office chair and, after sipping (guzzling) bourbon off camera fields a bunch of tough questions about the inner workings of Fark from Chaim, Harry, and Justin. Find out how the backend of the 1,177th most visited site in the US (785th in Pakistan) manages to keep churning out the funnies, find out how important SEO is to maintaining Drew's empire, listen to Drew bust the Daily Show's chops when it comes to journalistic responsibility, and find out why Duke sucks so very much. Plus Drew explains why FLORIDA has its own tag on Fark. Drew also saves us a trip to Wikipedia and tells us how Fark got its name and explains that there is truly no such thing as the wisdom of crowds.
After listening to (or watching, Drew was good enough to Hangout with us) this episode and reading the corresponding commentary on, we think you'll understand how the site's audience of "Caucasian...disproportionately moderately educated, childless men under the age of 35 who have incomes over $30,000" roll.
