There are many reasons that people started and are currently listening to the Jason Ellis Show (JES), inspiration, instruction, a little laugh on the drive home, or simply its the best thing on at the time. Whatever your reason may be, your listening.
I finally switched to Sirius radio about 2 years after Howard Stern moved from terrestrial. At the time I only knew of his show, and the blatant comedy and music channels. But soon I got tired of the replays of the replays of the replays and started to explore this world. I found The Bubba The Love Sponge Show and I found it quite entertaining at times. Other times I was back to channel surfing until I found this odd sounding guy talking about MMA. This caught my attention, for a little while.
I was bouncing back and forth between the two and eventually found myself understanding the JES more and more. Understanding the characters, the mindsets, and the general feel of the show. I liked it. Pretty soon I didn’t listen to the BTLS anymore, I was hooked. This JES was entertaining, informative (in terms of moto and MMA etc), and it was uplifting. I understand that many people are in need of some guidance, whether its family issues, drug abuse, or confidence issues. I have applied some “teachings” from the show to my everyday life, and I have also used them to help others. I socialize with people on Twitter that I have never met. These people have become my friends without a hand shake, a hello, or an evening drinking beers together.
This radio show has brought all these people to a common meeting place where we can socialize, joke, inspire, and help one another. Without the JES I don’t think that I would have this in my life, these people, this chance. For that I am grateful. This is why I am here.

And the drinking of donkey semen on Fear Factor was your moms idea.
Well put. The only reason I started to really participate in Twitter was because of the show. Now I’m flooding Twitter and have all these Twitter “friends” that I’m genuinely interested in and like. I hope one day to make it to an EllisMania where I can meet some of you.
