I'm Scott Stewart and I'm Carole Yu.
Welcome to Episode 15 of This Is Yu Podcast.
The voice you first heard is special guest Phil Rosenthal.
He is the creator and host of “Somebody Feed Phil,” a hit series on Netflix, in which he explores his love of food and travel through his humorous and childlike wide-eyed wonder.
Phil provides an exclusive sneak peek into Season Three of his hit Netflix show. Then he inspires us with stories of his successes and failures in life and entertainment. He invigorates us with advice about maintaining humor in everyday life. And, of course we talk about male modeling, and his newly adopted Great Pyrenees puppy, Murray.
Phil studied theater at Hofstra University on Long Island. He worked as an actor, writer, and director in New York, until he moved to Los Angeles in 1989.
After writing for series such as “Down the Shore” and “Coach”, in 1995, he created the hit comedy “Everybody Loves Raymond.” He was nominated for over 70 Emmy awards, winning 15, including the 2003 and 2005 awards for Best Comedy Series.
He has also won the 2002 Writers Guild Award for Excellence in Television Writing, and the peabody award for the 9/11 Telethon, America: A Tribute to Heroes.”
His first food travel series “I’ll have what Phil’s having” aired on PBS in 2015, for which he received a James Beard Award in 2016.
His most recent series “Somebody Feed Phil” follows his true love of bringing family, food, and travel to the table. In his own words, “Here’s what I’ve learned: food is what connects us, and Laughs are the cement.”
Phil lives here in Los Angeles with his wife, two children, and newly adopted sweetest, cutest Great Pyrennees puppy, Murray, who has his own Daily Murray segment on Phil’s Instagram.
After we talk to Phil, we have a new segment 7 reasons why you should eat chocolate.
Thank you to Phil of "Somebody Feed Phil” again for your time and infectious positivity. We were so honored and appreciative that you gave us the gift of your presence and your insight.
This is Carole, Phil, I will always refer back to this episode whenever I need a moment of inspiration and centering to keep my spirits up! Thank you for that.
We mentioned that we were dropping off some cookies to Phil. After he received them, he forwarded a photo with the cookies and told us “The Cookies are Phenomenal." Go to our instagram @ThisIsYuOfficial to see that pic of Phil with those amazing Spelt Chocolate Chip cookies. We’re glad we could bring a little love to Phil and his family, because we definitely felt that love when we spoke with him.
