Girls Gotta Eat has found a new home at the Dear Media network. Hosted by real-life besties Ashley Hesseltine and Rayna Greenberg, the hit comedy podcast candidly covers topics like sex, dating, and relationships, often with the help of celebrity and expert guests.

In a joint statement, the Girls Gotta Eat co-hosts said they’re “so excited to get into a long-term relationship with Dear Media.” New episodes will drop twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.

“They say you glow when you get into a new relationship, and we are glowing up,” they added. “[Dear Media has] been an innovator in the podcasting space for women and will give us the space and support to continue the conversation about dating, sex, and relationships in the same empowering and comedic way our ‘snackheads’ have grown to love. ... We’re excited to give our listeners more laughs, tea, and hot takes.”

Dear Media president Paige Port said she is thrilled to welcome Girls Gotta Eat to the network, and believes the podcast and its following are a perfect fit.

“We became aware of the show very early on and are excited to finally bring this partnership to life and continue to grow together,” Port said in a statement. “Ashley and Rayna have built an immensely popular podcast and have rapidly expanded their brand into an entrepreneurial empire.”

Since launching in 2018, Girls Gotta Eat has racked up more than 120 million downloads, and welcomed guests such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Nikki Glaser, and Esther Perel. The show’s success expanded to an interactive live show, No Crumbs, which has sold out in more than 200 theaters around the world.

In 2022, Hesseltine and Greenberg entered the sexual wellness space with the launch of Vibes Only, a company that specializes in Bluetooth-connected vibrators.

Girls Gotta Eat isn’t the only podcast to have recently joined the Dear Media family. The network hosts more than 80 others, including Tay & Taylor Lautner’s hit mental wellness podcast, The Squeeze; Stassi Schroeder Clark’s lifestyle pod, Stassi; The Toast with Jackie and Claudia Oshry; and Not Skinny But Not Fat with Amanda Hirsch.
