Since its debut in August of 2022, the show has earned the top spot on the Apple Podcasts charts. New episodes are released weekly on Mondays.
“Audioboom’s dynamic approach is exactly the right thing we needed to grow our audience and optimize the listener’s experience,” says Madison and Marquardt in a collaborative statement. “We have exciting guests, deeper dives and new experiences coming this season and we are so excited to do it with Audioboom.”

Jake Johnson, best known from the TV series New Girl and Gareth Reynolds, host of The Dollop podcast don’t feel qualified to give strangers good advice. But in each episode of We’re Here to Help, Jake and Gareth make several pitches to callers (whose questions range from trivial to serious) with their best attempts of advice. They can’t promise their suggestions will be perfect, but it will be the best they’ve got.
“We’re Here to Help is a show where we talk to callers about whatever small issue they’re dealing with. As long as it’s important to them, we’re on their side. Mostly we’re just trying to make each other laugh,” says Johnson and Reynolds in a joint statement. “We’ve also had a great experience on Audioboom. Their crew help us keep things running smoothly, which we really appreciate.” The show has achieved a position within Spotify’s Top 5 podcasts and also secured the #2 spot on Apple Podcasts U.S. comedy chart.
