The podcast came about in the middle of 2018. Having ended their Seinfeld episodic podcast at the end of the previous year, after nearly 200 straight shows together, the two had decided to figure out another subject to podcast about. Their search was depicted over the course of two podcasts, as they talked through a list of submissions from both themselves and listeners. With a slew of ideas in front of them, they decided to essentially do all of them in the course of their podcast. The ideas they liked were placed on a wheel, which would be spun every week. Whatever subject the wheel landed on would be the topic of their next show. The podcast officially launched on August 18, 2018, under the moniker "Rob and Akiva Need a Podcast." While the first two exploratory episodes were under the Post Show Recaps umbrella, due to the miscellaneous nature of the podcast, it launched in the general Rob Has a Podcast feed.
