Ted and Michael Read Sketches Into Microphones

Ted and Michael Read Sketches Into Microphones is a new sketch comedy podcast hosted by two longtime friends: Ted O’Gorman and Michael Paul Smith. It’s produced by Michael’s wife; podcaster Gillian Pensavalle (The Hamilcast, True Crime Obsessed), and features the three of them, as well as Ted’s brother Mike O’Gorman (Vice Principals, A.P Bio) in every episode. The sketches are short and often bizarre, and the genuine affection that all the people involved have for each other permeates the material, and creates the show’s unique sensibility.
