PodcastOne announced that Hollywood legend Norman Lear will be hosting a new show on the network. All of the Above with Norman Lear will pair the famed sitcom creator with co-host/actor Paul Hipp and a featured guest. Celebrity guests for the early episodes include actress Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and actor/comedian Jerrod Carmichael. Topics of conversation could range from current events and politics to culture and personal anecdotes. The show will debut May 1, airing weekly on Mondays.
Lear created and wrote/directed for television shows including All In The Family, Good Times, One Day at a Time, The Jeffersons, and Maude. “Circling 95, I wanted to wait until half my life was over to launch a podcast,” Lear said. “Whatever my age, I think of myself as your peer — whatever your age. Subscribe, and see if you don’t agree.”
“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.’”
