The podcast is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most downloaded show on the internet receiving more than 25 million downloads a month and has been featured in Fast Company Magazine, Entrepreneur, the NY Times and the LA times. This success has prompted Adam to launch an entire online network under the banner of Carolla Digital which produces many of iTunes top podcast such as Penn Gillette and PO'ed Cast with Dennis Miller and Adam Carolla.
In 2006, Carolla wrote, co-produced and starred in the independent boxing feature film The Hammer. The Hammer made its world premiere at the 2007 Tribecca Film Festival in New York. In 2015, Adam has once again written, produced, directed and is starring in his feature film ROAD HARD.
