Amanda Bynes, the former Nickelodeon star who has been out of the public eye for nearly a decade, is back in the spotlight with a new podcast.
The podcast, titled “Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast”, debuted on Spotify on Saturday, co-hosted by Bynes’ best friend, biochemist and PhD student Paul Sieminski. The podcast description says it is “entertainment based” and focuses on the hosts’ loves: “fashion, artists, actors, actresses, music and everything else!”
Amanda Bynes’ Return to Entertainment
In the first episode, the duo interviewed tattoo artist Dahlia Moth, who met Bynes at a Spirit Halloween store a few years ago. Bynes shared a photo of the three on Instagram, writing: “First episode of Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast done. Thank you @dahliamoth!”
Bynes announced the podcast last month on Instagram, saying she and Sieminski planned to “interview our friends, and then we’re hoping to take it mainstream and interview celebrities and artists.” It is unclear if Bynes will speak about her career or past struggles on the podcast.
Amanda Bynes, who rose to fame on shows like “All That” and “The Amanda Show”, and starred in movies like “Hairspray” and “She’s the Man”, retired from acting in 2010, saying she did not love it anymore. She also faced legal troubles, mental health issues, and a conservatorship under her mother, which ended last year.
Bynes was supposed to make her first public appearance since the end of her conservatorship at 90s Con, a fan convention celebrating all things ’90s, earlier this year, but she did not attend due to an undisclosed health concern, according to the organizers.
As we tune in to “Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast,” we embark on a journey not just into the entertainment industry but into the lives of two friends exploring the diverse realms they love. Whether they’re discussing ’90s nostalgia or sitting down with celebrities and artists, one thing is certain – Amanda Bynes is back, and this time, she’s inviting us to join her on a new and exciting adventure in the world of podcasting.
