Ever wondered about the business of professional podcasting? I am not talking about your standard interview style podcast like this one, but rather well-orchestrated podcast productions, including scripted audio stories? In today's Global VID episode, we speak with Vancouver's professional podcast production studio Kelly&Kelly as they talk about how they got their start, how they got their popular "This Sounds Serious" scripted podcast off the ground with a Castbox original production and where they are headed as an audio & visual production company.

Kelly&Kelly’s work has garnered over 80 million listens and views across multiple platforms. They are best known for creating This Is That, a satirical comedy show for CBC which ran for 9 seasons and the aforementioned This Sounds Serious, a true-crime comedy podcast that has been named ‘Best of the Year’ by Apple Podcasts, IndieWire, and The New Yorker. The show also won the 2020 Podcast of Year award at the Banff International Media Festival.
Other shows they’ve produced include Dark Air with Terry Carnation (with Rainn Wilson), Al Jazeera’s Hindsight, Unqualified with Anna Faris, Celeste & Her Best (with Celeste Barber), The Plop, and Audible’s Things We Don’t Talk About (starring Luke Kirby & Lauren Lapkus).
Their first television series, The Slowest Show, premiered on CBC Gem in Spring 2021. For more information, visit: https://kellykelly.ca/
