Lemonada Media Rapidly Expands its Slate of Podcasts

Lemonada Media has announced some of its new slate of original programming. On the heels of securing $8 million in funding earlier this year, Lemonada has quickly expanded its slate of 20 original podcasts and will grow to over 30 original podcasts in 2022.

Coming later this year is "Raised By Ricki," hosted by the iconic talk host, actress and filmmaker Ricki Lake. A cross between a rewatch podcast and a cultural re-examination of "The Ricki Lake Show," the podcast will dive into Ricki's life, exploring how she came to host her talk show at the young age of 24.

"The Ricki Lake Show raised all of us. It also tackled great big cultural issues that no one was grappling with at the time, and revisiting her episodes through today's cultural lens is fascinating. Part rewatch, part cultural deep dive, the show will be an absolute joy ride while helping us process Ricki's role in shaping culture then and now," said Chief Creative Officer Stephanie Wittels Wachs.

"We wanted to tap into the zeitgeist of processing the 90s, but we wanted to do it with Ricki. She quite literally raised us after school, and informed how we see the world. We are lucky to be able to create this podcast series together," added Lemonada CEO Jessica Cordova Kramer.

"I am thrilled to be partnering with Lemonada Media," said Lake. "I am such a fan of the content they have already produced. I am so excited to go back in time and revisit my old show with a different lens for a different time. It will be fun, cathartic, historical, nostalgic and I can't wait to get started."

New and upcoming Lemonada Media original podcasts include:

  • "Burnout," Hosted by Connor Franta, launching May 2022

  • "V Interesting with Vitus Spehar," Hosted by Vitus Spehar launching June 2022

  • "Mental Health Hotline Project," Hosted by Zak Williams, launching Summer 2022

  • "Raised By Ricki," Hosted by Ricki Lake, launching Fall 2022
