Dinner’s on Me with Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Comedy

I’m breaking bread with big-name friends—old and new—for a delicious meal and candid convos that can only happen over a glass of wine. We're getting out of the studio and into my favorite restaurants across Los Angeles and New York City with people like Julie Bowen, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Jesse Williams, Niecy Nash-Betts, and so many more. I know, a celebrity-interview podcast, who’s doing that? No one. Which is why I needed to. We’ll get vulnerable about everything from relationships and family history, to mental health and imposter syndrome. We’ll laugh about my attempted modeling career and being starstruck by Beyoncé. Look, am I saying a chocolate soufflé is going to get me to reveal all my secrets? Yeah. Yeah, I am. So, join me… dinner’s on me. Dinner’s on Me is a production of Sony Music Entertainment and A Kid Named Beckett Productions. Want to be the first to get new episodes of Dinner's on Me?

Zachary Quinto and Jonathan Van Ness on reclaiming queer narratives

11/21/2023
Over the course of the show, I’ve been able to share some of my personal life with you – from meeting Justin and our decision to get married, to parenting our two sons. It means a lot to me that we can have those conversations especially at a time when the rights of queer people, especially in the trans community, are under attack. It’s been so special to have these conversations with my guests as well. First up, “Star Trek” star Zachary Quinto. Over salads at American Bar in the West Village, we discuss his decision to come out publicly and our fun romps around Silver Lake gay bars in our 20s. Then, we have podcast host, haircare entrepreneur and “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness. Jonathan tells me what it’s like to live in Texas as a queer person, their journey to discovering their nonbinary identity and why a guinea pig named Peanut is causing a stir in some libraries.

Uzo Aduba, Busy Philipps, and Padma Lakshmi on parenting

11/14/2023
I feel so lucky because in the first season of my podcast, my guests have been incredibly vulnerable and we’ve covered a lot of ground in terms of our lives and careers. But I want to dig a little bit into a theme that’s come up with quite a few guests and that’s close to my heart – parenting. I became a parent for the first time in 2020 and it’s all still very new to me. Having these conversations on the show with parents and soon-to-be parents has been really special for me. In this episode, you’ll hear some of my favorite moments talking about parenthood with “Orange is The New Black” star Uzo Aduba, Busy Philipps of “Girls5Eva” and “Taste the Nation’s” Padma Lakshmi.
