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 Rosenthal and David Wild 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.

Stitcher will provide production support for Naked Lunch; and SXM Media, SiriusXM’s combined sales organization, has exclusive global ad sales rights for the show. Access for brands and marketers is only available through the advertising and sales arm of SiriusXM, Stitcher and Pandora.

Naked Lunch will be executive produced by Chris Bannon (Freakonomics, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend), Josephine Martorana (LeVar Burton Reads, Science Rules! with Bill Nye), and Matt Gourley (Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, Superego).

Naked Lunch joins the home of other acclaimed podcasts at SiriusXM, Stitcher and Pandora, including Office Ladies, Comedy Gold Minds with Kevin Hart, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, Hidden Brain, LeVar Burton Reads, series from Marvel Entertainment, and prestigious documentary and narrative projects such as Toxic: The Britney Spears Story, Heaven’s Gate, and Unfinished.

Naked Lunch will be available on Stitcher, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and all major podcast listening platforms.
