Phil Rosenthal on Creativity, Family, Food and Travel

Phil Rosenthal on Creativity, Family, Food and Travel

Phil Rosenthal, creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, talks about drawing creative ideas from your own life and traveling and food to get out of your comfort zone.

Recently, I was inspired by a number of things to re-release this conversation that I had with Phil Rosenthal from his Netflix show Somebody Feed Phil started, which just released its sixth season. Aside from that Phil, is best known as the creator, writer, and executive producer for the sitcom Everybody loves Raymond. 

In this conversation we talk about the importance of travel, food and relationships, and the creative process of pulling from your life to make things. All of this felt like a perfect storm for right now to re-release this episode. 

I was inspired not only by seeing season 6 of Somebody Feed Phil released, but also thinking ahead to American Thanksgiving coming up soon, and the food aspect of that as well as I was talking to a friend, I recounted all the traveling that I had done this year, more traveling than I've done in. And of course the great food I had while traveling.
