Actor Rainn Wilson and author Reza Aslan have teamed up with Kast Media to release Metaphysical Milkshake, a new series that will bring their unique backgrounds, philosophies and curiosities together to create a podcast all about life’s big questions. Wilson is an actor and producer best known for his role as Dwight Schrute on the sitcom “The Office.” Aslan is the author of three internationally best-selling books. In this podcast, Wilson and Aslan are joined by some of the foremost thinkers across a slew of industries to explore a different metaphysical question each week. Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant and Elizabeth Kolbert are among the guests that audiences will hear from.
“I'm very excited about giving podcast listeners an inside look at some of my life's biggest questions,” said Aslan. “Guided by experts, Rainn and I have learned something new in each episode and we hope listeners will as well.”
Metaphysical Milkshake is also produced by Participant-owned SoulPancake, a company founded by Rainn Wilson in 2009 to create a space where people from all walks of life could discuss and question what it means to be human.
“I founded SoulPancake in order to create a platform and mission to dig into life’s biggest, most human, most profound questions,” said Wilson in a statement. “I can’t wait to continue this journey with the brilliant Reza and Kast Media. Also, there will be jokes.”
