Ted Danson and Woody Harrelson reconnect 30 years after the end of “Cheers” — joined by a plethora of exciting guests — during their new original podcast, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name with Ted Danson and Woody Harrelson (Sometimes).”

Premiering June 12, the podcast features Ted and (when he can find him) Woody sitting down with a special guest each week to dig beyond the career highlights and into the stuff of life that makes us who we are.

“Though I’ve always dreaded small talk at a cocktail party, I’ve found that it is a genuine privilege to sit down with someone for a deep, uninterrupted conversation. With this podcast, we’ll do just that,” said Ted Danson. “And that I get to do it with Woody, my dear friend of many decades, is the cherry on top of the sundae. Each week, we’ll reflect on our own friendship and careers, and get to the core of the special guests who join us. I can’t wait for you to listen.”

“The best part about doing this podcast is that it’s given me an excuse to hang out with Ted,” said Woody Harrelson. “Sure we’ll talk with interesting guests, and sure we’ll share some laughs along the way, but the biggest win will be rekindling our romance, I mean friendship, after all this time. And I’m glad listeners will be able to join us for that.”
