I’m on this week’s Reality of Reality podcast

I’m on this week’s Reality of Reality podcast

When I was in Los Angeles earlier this year, I was thrilled to be invited as a guest on a podcast that I listen to regularly: The Reality of Reality.

The podcast is less than a year old, but has captured attention inside the reality industry because it’s just honest one-on-one (sometimes one-on-two) conversations between Rosen, who’s worked as a reality development executive and producer, and people connected to reality television. 

While the Jay and Tony Show’s great podcast offers great from-the-trenches insight into a reality TV production company, the Reality of Reality’s rotating guests means it constantly looks at reality TV from different angles.

The 22 episodes that have aired previously ranged from interviews with a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (Lisa Rinna) to an interview with the man who conceived of and cast Jersey Shore (Doron Ofir).

They’ve included frank conversations about the problems in the reality TV industry to stories about the creation of our favorite reality series, such as Project Runway.

Rosen, who produced CBS’ The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey, was even interviewed by another reality producer for an episode about her background.

We talked about our favorite reality TV from 2016, Shark Tank, and why I love this genre so much. 

Stick around to hear my biggest regret, sort of, not really—well, you’ll hear. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
