Episode one of The James Altucher Show featured best-selling author, Tucker Max who is known for helping break traditional publishing models when he created and self-published “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” and “Assholes Finish First” that landed on the New York Times Best Seller list and launched his career as an author and public speaker.

Coincidentally, in the episode, Max and Altucher discussed breaking the mold on traditional “gatekeeper” industries such as publishing and media distribution and how the internet (including iTunes) is creating massive opportunities for self-publishers of information. “The immediate success of The Altucher Show is very telling,” said Stansberry Radio founder, Porter Stansberry, “It shows that people know what they want, they know what they like, they no longer want to receive information that someone else has chosen for them – like we’ve all been forced to do with traditional media models”. “Distribution opportunities like iTunes gives people a freedom to consume information in an entirely new and unique way. It allows the success or failure of content to be judged on its merits and the value it adds to someone’s life,” said Stansberry. “James’ message of personal freedom resonates strongly with his listeners, it’s a message we promote widely here at Stansberry as well.”
