Cadence13 Partners with Music and Entertainment Stars Este Haim and Darren Criss for “That Thing I Do” Podcast


Leading premium podcast studio Cadence13, an Audacy company, announced today at the 2021 IAB Podcast Upfront that it has partnered with Grammy-nominated bassist Este Haim and Primetime Emmy Award-winning actor Darren Criss for their first-ever podcast, That Thing I Do.

Cadence13 Studios will be developing and producing the show with Haim and Criss.

Launching this summer, the close friends will share their mutual love of music, pop culture, and more with special guests on the weekly show. With a special focus on the “things that people do” that wider audiences may not be as familiar with, the duo will give their guests a venue to talk at length about their unknown passions and interests that other shows might not give them a chance to highlight. The show will be a raucous deep-dive into the funny and strange quirks of those successful people, and an investigation of what it is about “that thing they do” that makes them who they are.

Grounded by Criss’ and Haim’s experiences not only as lifelong fans of the entertainment industry, but as professionals working within it, the wide-ranging conversations on That Thing I Do will be riddled with spontaneous song, kooky comedy, and all the things… they do.

Este Haim is the Grammy-nominated bassist for her eponymous band HAIM with her two sisters. She is an NME Award winner (“Best International Band”), a World Music Award nominee, and an MTV Award nominee. HAIM’s album “Women in Music Pt III” (Expanded Edition) is out now.

Darren Criss is an Emmy and SAG award winning actor, musical artist, and songwriter. His acclaimed roles include American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and FOX’s global phenomenon Glee. He is also the executive producer and creator of the new Roku Original series Royalties in which he stars and provided the original songs for. Criss’ newest single, “f##kn around” is out now.
