How did the podcast start?

Call Her Daddy started in 2018 with hosts Alex Cooper and Sofia Franklyn, who were sharing an apartment at the time.

The podcast was initially bought by Barstool Sports after one month and quickly became a pop culture sensation. By the end of 2019 it had climbed up the rankings to be one of the top podcasts on iTunes.

However, the hosting duo were not to last as they had a public falling out and Sofia Franklyn left Call Her Daddy in 2020.

Cooper decided to go solo and the podcast has since hosted huge celebrity guests such as Miley Cyrus, as well as former adult performers such as Lana Rhodes and Mia Khalifa.

Cooper has said about the podcast:

“From its start three years ago, the show has always been about challenging the status quo and manifesting conversations that previously only happened behind closed doors.”

Prior to the new deal with Spotify Alex Cooper was thought to have a net worth of about $1.2 million.

The podcast used to be part of Barstool Sports, however, Cooper and Franklyn are thought to have disagreed about their contracts at the time.

According to Life&Style David Portnoy, the President of Barstool Sports, offered them $500,000 a year and bonuses, but while Cooper wanted to take the offer, Franklyn was keeping her eyes open for a better deal.
