In 2017, Patrick and his co-host Gillian Pensavalle created the true crime/comedy podcast True Crime Obsessed. TCO was an instant hit and quickly became one of the most popular true crime podcasts on the internet. In February 2020, Patrick launched the Obsessed Network with its first new podcast, Obsessed With: Abducted in Plain Sight, and will produce two more original podcasts for the network this year.
Patrick began his podcasting journey in 2013 as the creator, co-producer, and host of the popular Theater People podcast. Theater People was a first of its kind podcast, featuring full-length interviews with Tony winners, Broadway legends, and theaterâ€™s brightest stars. Theater People was notably included in NPRâ€™s 2016 hand-picked list of the best podcasts on the internet, was cited by Buzzfeed as one of the 22 best pop-culture podcasts online, and was named an honoree in the category of "Best Podcast" by the 2016 Webby Awards. In 2016, Patrick launched Broadway Backstory, which was nominated for a Webby Award in 2018. He was also tapped by Disney Theatrical Productions to produce and host The Official Disney on Broadway podcast.
With over ten years of experience in the entertainment industry, Gillian is a content creator through and through: she is an actor, voice-over artist, on-camera host, podcaster, editor, writer, SAG signatory producer, and showrunner. Gillian is the co-creator of True Crime Obsessed, a smash-hit true crime/comedy podcast that has garnered over 5000 five-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and are consistently listed in the top 200 of all podcasts. In January 2016, Gillian created The Hamilcast: A Hamilton Podcast, the first Hamilton podcast to hit the airwaves, which she also executive produces and hosts. Many of Hamiltonâ€™s creators and stars have appeared on the podcast â€“ including Lin-Manuel Miranda â€“ and it has earned the title of "The Official Hamilton Podcast" among cast members. Together with her husband Michael Paul Smith, Gillian co-created, produced, and starred in The Residuals, a successful comedy series based on the couple's the real-life NYC commercial auditions. As a Senior On-Air Host at Zazoom Media Group, Gillian pitched, wrote, hosted, produced, and edited approximately 2,000 videos for the flagship Buzz60 channel that were distributed to over 12,000 partner sites and garnered tens of millions of views.
