Entourage the podcast – everything you need to know!
Every now and then, a boxset comes along that defines a generation. For men in their twenties living through the noughties, the Entourage series was exactly that. If you don’t know what we mean, take a look at the Entourage trailer for the movie, which brings the glitz, glamour and machismo of the show to life.
Airing between 2004 and 201 there were 96 Entourage episodes over eight seasons – plus a motion picture, responsible for a legion of fans. But the fun doesn’t end there, because the Emmy-winning creator Doug Ellin and Kevin Dillon have collaborated again for all the throwback feels. Only this time, it’s in podcast format, better known as Victory the Podcast.
In recent years there’s been a real appetite for nostalgia, especially 80s and 90s shows like the recent Friends reunion. So it’s no surprise that Doug Ellin has created an unmissable weekly podcast which relives the brilliance of each of the Entourage episodes.
Proving that it’s never too late to the party, here’s your chance to pour over each episode in 45-minutes (sometimes an hour) of pure entertainment, with comedy and commentary thrown in for good measure. Oh, and the occasional famous friend pops in too.
75 and counting
Fans of the show will definitely not be disappointed, especially since there’s 75 podcast episodes which take a “deep-dive” into the in’s and outs of the show. If you’re aching for behind the scenes stories, anecdotes from your favourite stars and general banter, this is for you. In many ways, it’s akin to an afternoon in the pub with your best buds… loaded with atmosphere, fun and insight like how they shot on a rollercoaster and thoughts around alternative storylines. But, best of all, the podcast features some iconic Hollywood names making guest appearances, with laugh-out-loud stories to share.

Unquestionably, one of the most listened to Victory the Podcasts – Jeremy Piven’s episodes are a must for Entourage lovers. Here the three-time Emmy winner, who played Ari Gold in the hit series, talks about everything in front of and behind the lens. It’s fair to say nothing is off limits.
