LOS ANGELES (June 20, 2017) – Winner of Bravo’s Top Chef and Top Chef All-Stars, Richard Blais, becomes champion of culinary podcasts, with a new show on PodcastOne, the nation’s largest advertiser-supported podcast network. The camera-loving chef, author, restauranteur, and television cooking competition judge, debuts the Starving for Attention podcast, where he’ll keep the spotlight on his culinary adventures and provide an entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at the world of food.


Listeners will hear from anyone and everyone in the industry, including restaurateurs, television hosts, famous chefs, producers of your favorite cooking and competition shows and more, as they join Blais for spontaneous, back-of-house conversation. They’ll cover what it takes to make it in different parts of the food business, global trends and where the industry overlaps with entertainment. Plus, games, trivia and other wacky moments will make fans part of the conversation. The show is available Tuesdays at, the PodcastOne app and Apple Podcasts.


“I’m super excited to take this dive into the food world, and share with our audience the great people in the industry, and work they do, that sometimes go unnoticed,” said Blais. “And they do it all, while taking it just serious enough. Our first guest is food critic Besha Rodell, who discuss how she’s maintained her secret identity all these years – where better than a podcast for her story to be heard, but not seen? These stories have all truly been Starving for Attention!”


PodcastOne Founder and Executive Chairman Norman Pattiz said, “Who better to get into the culinary category with than Richard Blais? As a foodie myself, I will be a loyal listener.”
