SiriusXM announced that actor Seth Rogen will launch his first podcast with Stitcher later this year. The as-yet-untitled project will be available via Stitcher’s comedy podcast network Earwolf bringing a single story each week to life with editing and sound design.
Rogen’s new podcast is being developed and produced by Richard Parks III, who will edit the stories and add his signature approach to sound design and music, which can also be heard on Richard’s Famous Food Podcast, and in Parks’ collaborations with The Flaming Lips, McSweeney’s, and KCRW. Frida Perez and Earwolf’s Colin Anderson will serve as Executive Producers. Additional support comes from Earwolf’s Associate Producer Renee Colvert, Senior Producer Josh Richmond, and Managing Producer Amelia Chappelow.
“Recording and editing these episodes has been a thrilling and rewarding experience,” Rogen said. “Bringing people’s stories to life in these sort of ‘audio documentaries’ has given me amazing insight into what makes up the most impactful moments in people’s lives and how they contextualize these moments. I think Frida, Richard, and I have been able to do something that even I am shocked by: produce what seems like an original podcast.”
“Richard’s journalistic track record, leftfield sense of humor, and propensity for wildly creative audio made him the perfect producer to realize Seth’s vision,” says Colin Anderson, Vice President of Comedy at Stitcher. “Together, they’ve created something truly unique, which feels right at home at Earwolf.”
The show will be available on Stitcher, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and all major podcast listening platforms.
