“Good Friend” is a new weekly iHeartRadio Original Podcast hosted by award-winning actress and New York Times best-selling children’s book author, Jamie Lee Curtis launching 15 July.
She will talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of friendships through both intimate and candid unscripted conversations.
The 15-episode series will see Curtis having unscripted, relatable conversations with celebrity friends and public figures about conflict resolution, making new friends and keeping friendships alive during difficult times like the pandemic.
Among guests lined-up so far are Senator Amy Klobuchar, Michelle Williams, Robin Wright, Niecy Nash and Jessica Betts, Michelle Yeoh and Maria Shriver.
In the first episode, Jamie will sit down with her new friend Lena Dunham. They will talk about the intense friendships that inspired the show Girls, how to know when it’s time to move on from a friend group and how knowing yourself better can help you become a good friend.
Speaking about her new podcast, Good Friends, Jamie Lee-Curtis said: “During this incredible time, friendships have been tested and while many have withstood this forced time apart and even became stronger, others have fallen away.
“I’m thrilled to launch ‘Good Friend’ and share candid conversations that will dive into the truth behind friendships and relationships.
“Through this podcast, iHeartRadio has given me the opportunity, with humour, pathos, tears and spilled secrets, to explore dialogues with friends, new and old, and discover what it means to be a truly good friend, as well as how to let them go and how to keep them close.”
Will Pearson, Chief Operating Officer for the iHeartPodcast Network added: “We’re delighted to welcome ‘Good Friend’ to iHeartRadio and to help listeners navigate the sometimes-challenging world of friendships.
“Jamie brings a fantastic energy, intellect and sense of humour to these conversations with such a remarkable line-up of guests. They definitely make you think about the many incredible aspects of real friendship. It’s a beautiful podcast and we’re thrilled to call Jamie our friend and newest member of the iHeartPodcast family.”
