Eminem will be one of the guests on a special Curtain Call 2 podcast series hosted by his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg. Appropriately titled Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2, the seven-part series will air on Eminem’s SiriusXM channel Shade 45 beginning Wednesday (August 3) with Vice Chairman of Interscope Record Steven Berman.
The series promises an in-depth look at “the hits, art, videos, and albums that make up the legendary musical library of Eminem” as told through first-hand experiences by those who helped craft each project.
“This podcast gives a look inside the making of the albums from the last 15 years of Eminem’s career; the processes, struggles and triumphs from some of the key people that made it all happen,” Rosenberg explained. “The guests I talked to share a unique perspective and we were able to pull stories from each other that most people haven’t ever heard before — for better or worse — and we didn’t really hold back.”
Additional guests include Eminem’s Bad Meets Evil cohort Royce Da 5’9, singer Skylar Grey, instrumentalist Adam Blackstone and video director James Larese.
