SiriusXM announced today that Phil Rosenthal (creator of CBS’ Everybody Loves Raymond, and Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil) will launch his first podcast with Stitcher, the Triton-ranked #1 podcast company and SiriusXM subsidiary. Joined by his co-host and friend, Emmy and Peabody-winning TV writer, longtime Rolling Stone journalist and best-selling author David Wild, Naked Lunch will feature the pair engaged in smart, surprising, funny and sometimes moving conversations with special guests. The Naked Lunch podcast will launch this spring.
Each week, a special guest is expected to join Phil and David to talk about what is going on inside their lives – not just their most recent movie roles, books or special projects. Episodes will often be recorded at Phil’s home, with lunch brought in from favorite local eateries. With no agenda except the promise of a well-spent afternoon in excellent company, the show will be an informal meeting of wits, minds, and hearts.
“I’ve been having lunch with David for many years,” says Phil, “and we often bring other friends along: great musicians, actors, comedians, chefs, all types. We always eat, and laugh, a lot. And we invariably say, we should be recording this. And now we are.”
Naked Lunch will be available on Stitcher, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and all major podcast listening platforms.
