June 21, 2017

The culinary mind behind San Diego's Juniper + Ivy and The Crack Shack restaurants, celebrity chef Richard Blais has recently launched his own weekly podcast - Starving for Attention - on PodcastOne.

Known from his appearances on Bravo’s Top Chef and his win on Top Chef All-Stars, Chef Richard Blais becomes a champion of culinary podcasts with his new show on PodcastOne. The camera-loving chef, author, restaurateur, and television cooking competition personality debuts Starving for Attention podcast, where he’ll spotlight his culinary adventures and provide an entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at the world of food.

"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!”

On Starving for Attention, listeners will hear from anyone and everyone in the culinary industry, including restaurant owners, television hosts, famous chefs, producers of top cooking & 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.
