About the Show
Welcome to The Always Sunny Pod
The Always Sunny Podcast is a look back on the past fifteen seasons of the hit show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Creators and stars Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and Rob McElhenney are joined by writer Megan Ganz as they go back to where it all began in 2005 to discuss their (sometimes limited) memories of writing and filming the show we all know and love. Episode by episode, they’ll rewatch Sunny and reminisce on their nearly twenty-year long partnership, exploring how both have evolved over the years.
And sometimes…they’ll do none of that. Sometimes they’d rather have a deep discussion about an altercation they had in a drive-thru line, or have their blood drawn on camera and compete to see who’s healthiest. And so what? They can do whatever they want, you’re not their mom.
Rob McElhenney was born and raised in Philly, where he developed his deep love of the Philadelphia Eagles and healthy confrontation. In 2005 he convinced his two friends to film a TV pilot on their shitty camcorder, and the rest is history. When he isn’t writing, producing and starring in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, he’s doing that same exact thing on the Apple TV show Mythic Quest. In his free time he co-owns the Welsh football team Wrexham AFC, and patrols the streets dishing out justice.
Charlie Day grew up in Rhode Island, where he honed the comedic timing and musical talent we all know and love today. In college, he met fellow aspiring actors and longtime collaborators Jimmi Simpson and David Hornsby, who you may know as Liam McPoyle and Rickety Cricket. When he isn’t bashing rats on Always Sunny, he stars in animated and live action movies like Horrible Bosses, Pacific Rim and The Lego Movie. On his days off from entertaining the masses, Charlie enjoys a nice round of golf.
Glenn Howerton spent his childhood traveling the world, before his family eventually settled in Alabama. He went on to graduate with a BFA from Juilliard, and don’t you dare forget it. He starred in That ‘80s Show before becoming the Golden God himself on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. When he’s not on Sunny, you’ll find him on shows like Fargo, A.P. Bio and Velma. In his free time he enjoys finely tuning his body to be the epitome of health, so he can live a long life of being irritated by loud chewers.
Megan Ganz hails from Kalamazoo, Michigan and if you’re not sure where that is, she can show you on her palm. Megan started her career at Mad Magazine and The Onion, before pivoting to become a (ahem, Emmy-winning) television writer. She worked on shows like Community and Modern Family before joining It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in its twelfth season. She also co-created Mythic Quest, and produces this very podcast. When she’s not working one of her twenty-seven jobs, Megan enjoys sitting in the park with her husband and sweet pug, Hilda.
