Ted and Michael Read Sketches Into Microphones is a 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.

Hilarious!

I love this podcast! If you need something to make you laugh, take a listen! These guys (and Gillian) are a pleasure to have in my ears!

Stupid funny

Always stupid funny. OK sometimes just stupid but even that’s funny. What I’m trying to say is be careful listening to it with a mouth full of beverage. It will come out your nose.

Friggin’ Brilliance

Irreverent. Creative. Talented AF. These two take one of the hardest comedic forms and make it seem easy as pie. Glad to be listening in while it’s still on the ground floor- so excited to watch this thing take over the world.
