David Duchovny Enters Podcasting to Launch “Fail Better,” A Production of Lemonada Media

Press Release · Los Angeles, CA, USA ·

Lemonada Media, the award-winning podcast network that makes life suck less, today announced that award-winning actor, writer, director, New York Times best selling author and singer-songwriter, David Duchovny, will be joining the network’s lineup of hit shows with a new podcast, “Fail Better.”

The seasonal weekly series, premiering this spring, will have Duchovny in his first-ever role as host, exploring the topic of failure in all its forms, from the professional to the personal, and the ways in which failure, shame and falling short shaped his and all our lives. Each week, David and a guest interrogate the painful, shameful stings of life, including David’s own journey. Confirmed guests include Ben Stiller, Bette Midler, Gabor Maté, Sarah Silverman, and “Freakonomics” author Stephen J. Dubner, among others.

“I’ve been a connoisseur of failure for a long time, obsessed with the mistakes we make or the fear of making. I like thinking about how those mistakes, coupled with the futility of trying to avoid them, shapes our lives. If failure is something we all do so often, why are we so afraid of it? Working with Lemonada to explore this part of human nature is a gift in itself, and a meta-exercise for me in doing something new - hosting a podcast - which frankly fills me with my own fear of failure,” adds Duchovny.

“So much has been explored about failure in the self-help and business sectors. David’s soulful and earnest look at the subject is a 180-degree exploration of a topic we often love to pretend to embrace,” shares Lemonada co-founder and CEO, Jessica Cordova Kramer. “David brings an intellectual depth and honest curiosity, coupled with delightful threads of humor and humility, to the way in which failing, shame and ego shape our trajectories. The conversations he’s having with his guests have sparked our team to think deeply, and we’re looking forward to sharing this new series with the world in May,” adds co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Stephanie Wittels Wachs.
