Weekly Podcast Hosted By Raj Punjabi And Noah Michelson Premieres September 21, 2023
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BuzzFeed, Inc. (NASDAQ: BZFD), a premier digital media company, and Acast, the world’s largest independent podcast company, are partnering to debut a new podcast series titled Am I Doing It Wrong?. The weekly show, presented by HuffPost, the award-winning digital news organization and hosted by HuffPost’s Raj Punjabi and Noah Michelson, explores the all-too-human anxieties we have about trying to get our lives right.
Every week on the podcast, hosts Raj Punjabi and Noah Michelson choose a different topic – from saying sorry to tipping to online dating – and enlist experts and guests with big opinions to debate and strategize the best ways to tackle everything that’s constantly thrown at us. By the end of each episode, you’ll be wiser, less worried and more equipped to do every day a little better. Every episode will feature a guest — from HuffPost editors and reporters to psychologists to couples counselors to comedians — who will help them break apart the struggle, analyze it, and provide their expertise and hot takes.
