Bi-weekly podcast

Craig Kilborn

Discover how to enjoy the finer things in life, California-style, with TV host and podcaster Craig Kilborn

On this episode of the California Now Podcast, host Soterios Johnson discusses fine dining, road trips, ascots, and the most fabulous experiences available in the Golden State with TV personality Craig Kilborn. The former host of The Late Late Show and The Daily Show shares how he’s enjoying his laid-back California lifestyle these days, a topic he explores on his new podcast, The Life Gorgeous.

Building off the success of his whimsical Instagram profile, Kilborn had the idea to create a podcast where famous friends and fascinating guests alike can discuss everything from martinis to movies to pies with “Lord Kilby,” as he’s known to fans. During his chat with Johnson, Kilborn serves up dozens of recommendations: restaurants to patronize, towns to explore, trips to take, and much more.

The bon vivant and lifelong traveler also took the California Questionnaire, answering a series of question about his love for the Golden State—including his ultimate splurge and how his dream day would unfold.
