Alison Roman, former food columnist for The New York Times and viral content creator, has launched a new advice podcast, according to a report from Variety.
The weekly podcast, titled Solicited Advice with Alison Roman, debuted its first episode yesterday on all major podcast platforms. The premise of the show features the cook answering questions from live and recorded callers, alongside a special guest.
“I am so excited to have a better, deeper, wide-reaching platform to answer the questions I get on a daily basis, and to talk about something other than cooking (I contain multitudes!) with some of the funniest and smartest people I know,” said Roman. “It’s long been my dream to follow in Delilah’s footsteps, to stand on the shoulders of Car Talk – here’s hoping this podcast comes close to either.”
Special guests that will feature in future episodes of the podcast include TikTok content creator Tinx, Seek Treatment podcast co-host and stand-up comedian Cat Cohen, Vogue columnist Raven Smith, The Other Two actress Heléne Yorke, and others.
The podcast is under the Webby award-winning Talkhouse Podcast Network, a media company which focuses on creating talent-driven content with personalities from the music, film, sport, and entertainment industries. Other podcasts within the network include Björk: Sonic Symbolism, That’s How I Remember It with musician Craig Finn, 365 days with mxmtoon, and more.
“Alison is a singular voice who speaks to so much more than just food,” said Talkhouse Podcast Network founder Ian Wheeler. “We couldn’t be more excited to work alongside her wonderful team on this show.”
Roman has previously featured as a guest on a number of podcasts, including The Splendid Table, iHeart’s Beyond The Beauty, All of It with Alison Stewart, and many more, but this is the first that she has hosted. Listeners can submit questions and ask for advice from the host and guest by calling the hotline at (856) 502-4816 or filling out a form on the website.
