Hi! I'm Carl Kozlowski, the co-founder and current CEO of Radio Titans (www.radiotitans.com), a podcasting site/Web-radio station that was launched in June 2012 after we received great write-ups in the Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly for the podcast "Grand Theft Audio." In our first year on the air as Radio Titans, we were also raved about in the Pasadena Star-News as well as the top comedy-news site Laughspin.com.
But best of all, we were named one of the 50 coolest talk-radio outlets in the country by www.talkers.com, the nation's top talk radio news site! As part of their Frontier Fifty list, we were honored alongside superstars Glenn Beck, Marc Maron and Adam Carolla as one of the best places in the country to hear great shows. Check it out here!http://www.talkers.com/2013ff/050.jpg
Our specialty was in creating hilarious comedic shows laced with insightful interviews of numerous superstars from the worlds of comedy, music, film and books. Everyone from Henry Rollins to Burt Bacharach to the creators of "Reno 911" and dozens of top comics from the hottest late-night and Comedy Central shows came through our doors, creating a treasure trove of some of the coolest interviews to be found anywhere! We also were great at breaking new talent and turning listeners on to the next generation of stars.
But when our lease came up in July and we learned about our Frontier Fifty status, I decided to take a break and plan how to make things much bigger and better. We're hoping to move into better offices in a more accessible location, set up a video camera system so you can watch our stellar guests as well as listen to them, and improve our promotions and styles of programming (including a wing of political shows that could develop into an exciting force in the 2014 and 2016 elections, plus a wave of new music shows).
We're also extending our reach by inviting those who dream of having their own show to become stars by recording with us and then using our ace marketing to make it all happen !
We also have an incredible lineup of hosting talent joining us, including comedians Shang (who has 45,000 subscribers and headlines clubs nationwide!), Ruben Paul (a national club headliner and world-tour opener for George Lopez and Russell Peters), and Brian Scolaro (cast member of four network TV sitcoms plus a ton of appearances on shows like "Conan"!) plus one of the world's top comic storytellers, Antonio Sacre, is returning! And we're also excited to feature the return of the fantastically innovative Orson Welles/"War of the Worlds" type show about the zombie apocalypse, "The Zombie Radio Show."
We will be offering a wide variety of political programming as well, from both conservative and liberal outlets. This will serve as a new platform for those looking to express their political views, but also to give candidates nationwide a way to promote themselves and discuss what they are going to accomplish.
And we'll be bringing the party back to party politics, as we launch bold new programming that will reinvent the election campaigns of 2014 and beyond!
Some of the great people who will have programs on Radio Titans..

Ruben’s upbringing was the foundation for his universal appeal. His undeniable charisma, and spontaneity make him a crowd favorite every where he goes. Ruben’s talents as a writer and performer have garnered him many honors including being chosen as one of the “Best of the fest Comics” at HBO’s prestigious U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Stand up television appearances include: Comedy Central,”The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Lopez Tonight”, Showtime Network’s Special “Russell Peters Presents”, B.E.T’s “Comic View”, and “Comics Unleashed”, just to name a few.
