The Hosts

Rick Sorkin

Rick Sorkin is a Santa Monica-based Music Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist, Creative Strategist, Plant-based Chef and Co-host of ‘Everybody and Their Mother Has A Podcast’. He’s also 6’5”, ambidextrous and followed on Twitter by Barack Obama, but we’re getting off topic.

Born and raised in Philly, Rick earned a Business Degree and a Music Degree from The George Washington University. He’s spent time on Madison Avenue and in the center of Hollywood, where he created and contributed to many of the now-common global digital advertising and talent practices. He also executive produced the star-studded, get-out-the-vote event ‘Telethon for America’, has performed at the world-famous Hollywood Improv, and has been in about a million bands you’ve never heard of.

He’s currently laying low in the desert, recording the podcast and working on projects including AMINAL SONGS (, one minute looping resistance art songs not-so-secretly about coping during the pandemic, and ‘Apocalypse Gourmand’, his forthcoming plant-based cookbook.

Sharon’s stand-up comedy experience has so far been limited to a single performance in Philly at the now-legendary Cabaret L’Etage. It went very well.
