Mission Statement

Why we exist

Gas Station Drugs was founded to put our industry and creative expertise to good use to identify and elevate podcasts that might otherwise not receive the attention they deserve. Shows in our stable receive the materials they need to start producing high quality audio, the storytelling and direction of creators with several successful show to their name, and the marketing and business guidance many lack in this space. GSD strives to do this without forcing creators to mortgage their show's earning potential or creative vision.


Founded in 2023 by Josh Burgess and Joseph Rutledge, Gas Station Drugs is the new iteration of Josh's original business Die Inside LLC which was primarily focused on AP creation and production.

Partner & Executive Director

Josh is a storyteller, and has been for most of his life. He was a published author at the age of twelve and had won numerous local awards for his writing as a child.

Then he sold his soul to corporate technology and software engineering for two decades before getting back into the business of storytelling. His new show What's in The Rift debuts October 1st.

When not writing, Josh runs design, marketing, business affairs and all manner of tasks for Gas Station Drugs that sometimes get lost in the mix for podcast creators. He can teach you this dark art, but at what price?
