Phil Rosenthal (creator of CBS’ Everybody Loves Raymond, and Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil) launched his first podcast with Stitcher. 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 features the pair engaged in smart, surprising, funny and sometimes moving conversations with special guests.

Each week, special guests – including Ray Romano and Brad Garrett in a recent episode — 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.”

“We are pleased to help Phil and David bring Naked Lunch to life,” says Daniel Osit, Chief Operating Officer at Stitcher. “As anyone who watches Somebody Feed Phil knows, Phil has an appetite for great conversation. With him and David at the center of a table filled with interesting guests, there is going to be a lot for listeners to sink their teeth into.”

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).
