Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Spreaker, the leading podcast platform, announced today the addition of “If I Were You,” the hit show from the Los Angeles-based comedy duo, Amir Blumenfeld and Jake Hurwitz. Starring in one of CollegeHumor’s most popular and longest-running shows, the pair now will bring not only their podcast series, but also their hundreds of thousands of followers to Spreaker beginning today.
In every podcast episode, Blumenfeld and Hurwitz (and sometimes a guest) offer their guidance on a wide variety of topics from relationships, to work, to school, and everything in between. They also perform and record their show live on stage around the world in front of their fans.
Amir Blumenfeld and Jake Hurwitz have written and starred in hundreds of episodes of their web series, “Jake and Amir”, which have garnered nearly a billion views to date. Previously, they won a Webby Award for best comedy series, with Blumenfeld named best individual performer.
“Our mission at Spreaker is to help content creators make their shows accessible on as many platforms as possible,” said Francesco Baschieri, founder and CEO. “We’re proud to have Amir and Jake join the Spreaker platform and look forward to collaborating on this and many other hit shows looking for the largest audience and easiest creation and publishing tools.”

Their platform makes it easy for us to focus on doing what we do best, creating content, while they deal with the technology side by seamlessly getting our show onto as many devices as possible.
