Patrick HINDS

In addition to his time in front of the mic, Patrick also works behind the scenes as an executive producer of True Crime Obsessed. Prior to his true crime career, Hinds got his start in theater! Patrick created several Broadway-focused podcasts including Theater People and Broadway Backstory.


Patrick is also the author of the hilarious memoir Failure is Not NOT an Option which was released in Fall 2023 and became a national bestseller with the Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly.  Hinds is the creator, writer, and star of the touring show Patrick’s Traveling Book Party, which has been playing to sold-out crowds across the US and in London.

Along with Gillian, Patrick has helped grow TCO to over two hundred million downloads with an outstanding group of listeners. In 2022, TCO made history by being the first podcast to play live on Broadway.


In 2022, Patrick joined the board of A is For, an organization dedicated to destigmatizing abortion through art and creative initiatives. Hinds stays connected to the LGBTQ+ and Broadway community through his podcast. Since 2022, TCO has sponsored Broadway Backwards, an annual event celebrating LGBTQ+ stories through musical theater, with proceeds benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  Patrick believes failure can be a great gift, “If you failed, it means you tried - you took a chance and showed up for yourself.” He is dedicated to helping others build and learn from their mistakes in order to excel.


Patrick resides in New York City with his beloved husband and daughter.
