Los Angeles, CA – He is a content creator, and now he is also a talent. World War II veteran/writer/producer/director and creator of such legendary sitcoms as All In The Family, Good Times, One Day at a Time, The Jeffersons, Maude, and the recent reboot of One Day at a Time with a Latino cast — all shows that defined and and are re-defining American television, Norman Lear brings his progressive and boundary-moving voice to the microphone with an intimate weekly podcast. Announced April 24th by PodcastOne Founder and Executive Chairman Norman Pattiz, All of the Above with Norman Lear will take listeners on an enlightening ride of conversation, from comedy to family, current events, music, politics, social issues and more. While topics will cover any and everything you can think of, the show will always feature the unique perspectives of celebrities, politicians and everyday folk. Lear is joined each week by great friend, actor, composer and sidekick, Paul Hipp.
Early celebrity guests include Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jerrod Carmichael and America Ferrera. Conversation topics run the span of the basketball talents of Louis-Dreyfus’ son and Veep with Julia, race in media with Carmichael, training for a triathlon with Ferrera and religion with Poehler.
The podcast will debut on May 1st, with new episodes available every Monday on PodcastOne.com, the PodcastOne app and iTunes. Fans can pre-subscribe now.
“Circling 95, I wanted to wait until half my life was over to launch a podcast,” said Lear. “Whatever my age, I think of myself as your peer — whatever your age. Subscribe, and see if you don’t agree.”
Pattiz said, “I have known and admired Norman for a very long time. Having his podcast on our PodcastOne network is gigantic, not to mention totally cool. From one Norman to another, ‘Welcome aboard.’”
