Who's The Boss Of This Podcast?

Season 1, Ep. 1

Officers O'Leary and Minogue are back together at last to host the official Wellington Paranormal podcast. With rare behind the scenes stories and special guest appearances from stars, creators and creatives from the show.


Karen and Mike swap stories about their unlikely path to becoming global television stars and having to be "the funny ones" for two of New Zealand's most beloved comedic voices, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.


In this inaugural ep, the pair sit down to catch up on what's been happening in each other's lives since the chart-topping TV show aired around the world. Karen's been busy as, with TV gigs like Taskmaster NZ and being a Community Investigator on Paddy Gower Has Issues, as well as starring in films like The Breaker Upperers and Nude Tuesday. Meanwhile, Mike's been broadcasting daily on Radio Hauraki as well as taking cool trips to the hospital to suss an almighty painful kidney stone brought on by adult handstands.
