Premiering February 9 with Dan Levy as her first guest, Jessi Cruickshank’s new podcast will bring fans closer to the star comedian than ever before!
Fresh off her sold-out live comedy tour, Jessi is launching the brand-new podcast series, Phone a Friend with Jessi Cruickshank, in partnership with Acast, the world’s largest independent podcast company.
As her debut podcast series, Phone a Friend will tap into what Jessi’s legion of fans have come to adore her for — exploring trending topics with everyday people in her signature irreverent, funny, and relatable way.
In each episode, Jessi will tackle the biggest topics in pop culture in a way that only she can. And here’s the fun part — when she wants to dive deeper, learn more, or just understand things like who on earth Bhad Bhabie is, she’ll get to phone a friend. This can be a real-life friend, a celebrity friend, a sassy tween, a serious news anchor, a gay man who knows about The Real Housewives, a straight man who knows about sports, or the only person she could find who actually got Taylor Swift tickets. The conversations might last three minutes or the entire episode. They can be deep, petty, silly, or smart, but they will all be eye-opening and hilarious.
Following the massive success of her series New Mom, Who Dis? on Facebook Watch — where she’s garnered more than 100 million views from fans watching her tackle pronouns with drag queens, celebrity fashion with grandmas, slang with tweens, and a sit-down with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that went viral worldwide — Phone a Friend will bring her hilarious, unique takes to podcasting for the first time, and will give fans closer access than ever before.
“I’ve always had a face for podcasting,” said Jessi. “Now I’ll finally get to use it on a platform where I can say all the things I can’t say anywhere else. Because you can’t get in trouble from a podcast, can you? Wait… can you?”
Phone A Friend will premiere on February 9 with Dan Levy as the first guest, and the weekly podcast will publish new episodes every Thursday. The premiere episode will mark the first on-air reunion of Jessi and Dan — who were co-hosts of MTV’s The Hills: The After Show — in over a decade.
Phone a Friend is available on all podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and anywhere else they listen. Fans can now listen to Phone a Friend’s trailer and follow/subscribe to the series wherever they get their podcasts.
