The multi-award-winning producer, writer, publisher, and founder of UNSUGARCOATED Media, a 501(c)3 media production company, Aalia Lanius, is working on a new format for her popular podcast, "UNSUGARCOATED with Aalia." After 10 seasons of being accessible on YouTube and other major podcasting platforms, the podcast will transition to an Oprah-style studio live-audience talk show format. It will be the inaugural installment of its new format and will be branded as a "SOCIAL GOOD TALK SHOW," with each interview developing emotional intelligence through self-discovery, and practical approaches towards healing for trauma survivors. Lanius is looking to distribute the show on platforms that support and promote initiatives on social good. The precise date of the show's official debut is yet to be determined.
The award nominated show was previously shot in podcast form at UBN Studios in Burbank. Now, it is poised to become the first ever full-fledged social good talk show: recorded in front of an intimate live studio audience, the show features public figures and inspirational people speaking on healing, self-improvement with empowering topics.
Lanius is ‘UNSUGARCOATED™' for a reason. The resilient California native and one-of-a-kind host was homeless at the age of 14 and has had her share of traumatic experiences, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and a life-altering illness. But she has also seen triumph, happiness, and healing. She came to understand the value of communication and how it may give trauma survivors a deeper sense of support via her own experiences and talks with others. She believes that in order to inspire others to be the best version of themselves, “we must show them it’s possible.”
Larry Namer has joined the project as the show's EP. Backing socially conscious initiatives, Namer sees Aalia as an example of compassion and tenacity. “The world has been in constant turmoil and is looking for some positive messages, Aalia will bring those to them.”
Kent Speakman, the creator of KNEKT TV, a socially aware streaming service for Apple TV and Roku, as well as Evette Vargas, known for Confessions, Training Day, and Dark Prophet, are also producers on the project.
The special inaugural episode will be taped in late August and features baseball player Bryan Ruby who publicly came out as gay during his 2021 stint on the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, an independent team that was once an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. He is currently the only active professional baseball player to come out as gay.
