I’m actually shocked. When Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy announced he was going to be doing a podcast with TikTok star Josh Richards I thought that it was a smart move but I didn’t think I’d find myself actually entertained.
With Dave being 43 years old and Josh Richards being 18, I didn’t think that Dave would be a good fit for the podcast. I was thinking originally that they should have hired someone who is a top follow on TikTok to host the podcast for the Barstool network. I mean what is a 40 year old and an 18 year old have in common? I wasn’t sure at first but once again Davey Pageviews doesn’t fail.
There might be a 25 years age difference but if anyone follows Barstool knows, Dave acts younger than his age. Hell, the Dave from 10 years ago looks and seems older than the Dave of 2020. I guess that’s what can happen when you’re worth a zillion dollars.
I’m only 22 years old. So I’m in the age range of the TikTokers but with running this website, I’ve been an avid Barstool reader for the last decade of my life. I’ve been following some of the TikTok drama mainly over the last six months, but never did I think I’d see the face of Dave Portnoy all over TikTok.
I’ve listed to every episode of BFFs thus far and it’s been nothing short of greatness. The most recent episode has had tons of drama between Call Her Daddy host Alexandra Cooper who was the guest on this last episode. The beef started when she started calling out TikTokers for being in her DMs or else revealing that TikTokers girlfriends are in her DMs asking for answers.
The beef has gotten to the point that Dixie D’Amelio has replied to the drama about her and Noah Becks relationship being fake:
Also James Charles has commented:
This all ads (adds – but Davey Big Bucks sells ads) up to being because of Dave Portnoy. Davey Pageviews. Dave and his team come up with some hard hitting questions. But most importanly on this last episode Dave had Alexandra rank the Sway House and that’s when majority of the drama started.
Every episode has been solid thus far. I’m not sure how they’ll keep being able to top the episodes. But with the guest they’ve gotten thus far that has created drama through this podcast – Bryce Hall, Nessa Barrett, Alexandra Cooper this has the potential to be one of the biggest shows Barstool has ever had.
Literally. The TikTok market is huge and there isn’t many networks that are focused on having a podcast about what’s going on in the TikTok World.
Dave took that shot like he has his entire career. And it’s paying off. HUGE!
