Patrick Hinds is the founder of Obsessed Network, a podcast network about the stuff you're obsessed with. In 2017 he and his co-host Gillian Pensavalle launched True Crime Obsessed, a true crime/comedy podcast that recaps true crime documentaries with humor, sass, heart, and just the right amount of snark. TCO has recently been featured in The New York Times and Vulture, and after a series of sold out live shows in New York City, the podcast has launched an international tour including shows in New Orleans, Chicago, Seattle, and Toronto. Patrick also appears on the Obsessed Network's new hit podcast \"Obsessed With: Disappeared,\" where he and his best friend of twenty years Ellyn Marsh recap episodes of ID's Disappeared.
Prior to creating True Crime Obsessed, Hinds began his podcasting journey in 2013 as the creator, co-producer, and host of the popular Theater People podcast, a show featuring full-length interviews with Tony winners, Broadway legends, and theater’s brightest stars. Theater People was notably included in NPR’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, Hinds launched Broadway Backstory, a documentary-style podcast which found out how new shows develop from an idea to a full Broadway production. Broadway Backstory 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.
