Ricki was the barometer for all things young and trending. And she’s back with a brand-new podcast, to relive it all. This is Raised by Ricki, hosted by Ricki Lake herself along with TV personality and digital creator Kalen Allen, and joined by celebs, past show producers, former guests and more.Join Ricki and Kalen as they rewatch episodes, reflect on the culture, and have way too much fun doing it.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

You may remember her from “The Flintstones” or even the OG 1992 movie “A League of Their Own," but three years after The Ricki Lake Show first aired, Rosie O’Donnell also made her talk show debut. The Rosie O’Donnell Show featured huge guests like Tom Cruise and Madonna, and Rosie quickly became known for her authenticity and quirky sense of humor. It was also a time when she became friends with her fellow talk-show host, Ricki. This week, Rosie reunites with Ricki to talk with her and Kalen about Rosie's old show, witnessing 9/11, motherhood, and Rosie's experience coming out after leaving the daytime circuit.

The 90s were no stranger to toxic ideas about what people’s bodies should look like. While we may still struggle with anti-fat bias today, fortunately we also have icons like Tess Holliday.

In a deeply open conversation, Tess, Kalen, and Ricki talk about the pressures that come when your weight is your brand. They talk about the visibility of being plus-size and having an eating disorder, Taylor Swift’s scale scene in the “Anti-Hero” music video, and more. Plus, Tess talks publicly for the first time about a dream gig that almost happened but didn’t.

The Ricki Lake Show never shied away from controversial topics. The most spicy and taboo topic of all? Sex! This week, iconic comedian, actress, and musician Margaret Cho joins Ricki and Kalen to talk about sex work, sex positivity, and how society’s views on all things sex have evolved since the 90s. She talks about her time as a phone sex worker, how working at a leather dildo shop kickstarted her LGBTQIA+ advocacy, and her memories of how The Ricki Lake Show handled sex-related topics in the 90s – and what she thinks a Ricki Lake Show episode about sex work would look like today.
