Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY Award-Winning Artist, Sam Smith Partners with Lemonada Media to Launch First Podcast

Press Release ·

Lemonada Media, the award-winning podcast network that makes life suck less, today announced that multi-platinum, GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar-winning artist and songwriter, Sam Smith, will join the network’s hit lineup of shows for their first podcast --- The Pink House.

Premiering June 13, each episode of “The Pink House” will hear from Sam as they sit down with an amazing cast of friends and queer cultural icons -- including Elliot Page, Gloria Estefan, Ben Platt, among others -- to share how they all found their own places in the world and share stories of belonging, chosen families, and the journeys we take to become who we’re destined to be. The podcast is inspired by Sam’s childhood home in the English village of Great Chishill called The Pink House --- a place of total warmth and love where Sam was able to find their voice. Each week, Sam will use The Pink House and its different rooms as a backdrop, to explore how each guests’ idea of home and safety has shaped their identity.

“This year I have been sitting down and recording interviews with truly inspirational leaders, guardians of their craft and revolutionary voices,” said Sam Smith. “These conversations have been so wonderful, and they all enrich and inform our collective mission with my new charitable foundation — The Pink House -- which is to use knowledge and lived experience to support, and to protect, the lives of our beautiful community of queer/LGBTQIA+ people. I hope you enjoy listening.”
