‘Ghostbusting goofballs Minogue and O’Leary run spooktacular podcast for ‘Shadows’ spin-off.’

Hey there, paranormal enthusiasts! If you’re a fan of the hilarious New Zealand series Wellington Paranormal, then you’re in for a treat. The bumbling cops at the center of the show are stepping out from behind the camera to host a podcast about the series. That’s right, Officer Minogue and Officer O’Leary, played by Mike Minogue and Karen O’Leary, will be taking the reins and delving into all things paranormal.

For those who may not know, Wellington Paranormal is a spin-off of What We Do in the Shadows, produced by Jermaine Clement and executive produced by Taika Waititi. The series follows a pair of hilariously inept cops as they navigate their way through a world filled with vampires, werewolves, and zombies. It’s pure comedic gold, and now fans can get even more behind-the-scenes insights from the stars themselves.

Joining Minogue and O’Leary on the podcast will be recurring guests Maaka Pohatu (Sarge) and Tom Sainsbury (Officer Parker), along with other actors, writers, and directors from the show. Get ready for some hilarious anecdotes and insider stories that will have you laughing out loud.

The podcast is set to launch on Thursday New Zealand local time, or late evening PT, and new episodes will be available each week on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other platform apps. So, whether you’re a vampire or a mortal, you can tune in and enjoy the hilarity.

Originally airing on TVNZ, Wellington Paranormal has garnered a dedicated fanbase and has been distributed internationally, including on The CW and HBO Max in North America, Sky in the UK & Ireland, and SBS in Australia. The show has currently paused after its fourth season run in 2022, but fear not, the podcast will keep the spirit of the series alive and kicking.

But wait, there’s more! In addition to chatting about the show, Minogue and O’Leary will also be talking with celebrity fans who can’t get enough of Wellington Paranormal. Get ready for some star-studded appearances and plenty of laughs as they share their love for the series.

“We’re looking forward to dissecting each episode as well as talking to both the people who created the show, and celebrity fans who, correctly, think Wellington Paranormal is the greatest thing to ever appear on screen,” said Minogue. We couldn’t agree more!

But who’s behind the magic of this podcast, you ask? None other than Minogue’s own New Zealand-based podcast network, Frank Podcasts, which he runs with Tim Batt. Get ready for some top-notch production and plenty of Kiwi charm.
