When syndicated radio personality Dan Patrick announced last August that he had created The Dan Patrick Podcast Network in a partnership with iHeartMedia and Workhouse Media, word was the network would feature more than just the sports content that Patrick is known for. Now comes the proof of that with the release of “Two Guys from Hollywood,” a new podcast about the entertainment industry.
The weekly podcast will be hosted by Hollywood literary agent Alan Nevins and Joey Santos, a columnist and celebrity chef. Friends for more than 30 years, Nevins and Santos grew up in Hollywood and have worked with various well-known clients from actors, chefs, authors, scientists and producers to super-models and comedians. The series will share their behind-the-scenes experiences in Hollywood, covering topics including pop culture, publishing, cooking, and the ins and outs of the entertainment industry.
Their first guests joining the conversation are Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs, two stars of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo. Future guests on the podcast include Phil Rosenthal, host of the hit Netflix series “Somebody Feed Phil,” Sean Hepburn Ferrer and Emma Ferrer, the son and granddaughter of acting legend Audrey Hepburn, and Hector Berrellez, an infamous DEA agent working in Los Angeles. Guests who appear on Two Guys from Hollywood will also be treated to good food and flowing drinks.
Patrick’s podcast deal came on the heels of him signing a new and expanded long-term contract with iHeart’s Premiere Networks. Under their agreement iHeartMedia and Patrick each will commit marketing resources to promote the podcasts across the iHeartPodcast Network and other iHeart broadcast and digital platforms, as well as on Patrick’s syndicated radio show, which is carried on more than 360 affiliates across the U.S. as well as on SiriusXM.
Other podcasts in the works include “The Battle for L.A,” which is co-produced with Joy Road Entertainment. The series tells the story of the birth of professional basketball in Los Angeles. The podcast is currently being developed for television and film by Sugar23. The network is also backing “Meeting Tom Cruise,” a podcast hosted by actors and die-hard Cruise fans Jeff Meacham and Joel Johnston.
