Toronto prodco Cream Productions is getting into the podcast game, with the announcement of the launch of its podcast division.

Cream Podcasts will create, develop and produce non-fiction audio programming with a focus on original content and spin-offs of its TV and streaming programming.

The division’s first podcast docuseries, CNN Audio’s Behind the Desk: The Story of Late Night, premieres April 22 and is a companion to its CNN Original Series, The Story of Late Night, which bows May 2.

With a slate of premium podcast content in development, Cream currently is in full swing with My Pop’s Culture, a 10-part humorous and informative father-and-son podcast, hosted by Marshall Kaplan (father) and Ben (son), that bridges the wide pop-culture gap between the Gen-X and Millennial generations. Already on board are an array of celebrity guests including Carol Burnett, Carol Baskin, Trixie Mattel, Gilbert Gottfried and more to join the conversation with personal anecdotes that amplify this humorous generational divide. My Pop’s Culture is slated for a summer 2021 release.

“Penetrating the podcast landscape is a natural progression for Cream, allowing us to broaden our expertise in premium documentary; delve deeper with companion podcast series; and test and explore new content,” said David Brady (pictured), CEO of Cream Productions, in a statement. “On the heels of Behind the Desk: The Story of Late Night, My Pop’s Culture promises to be a laugh-out-loud experience bolstered by podcasting’s nontraditional, nonlinear format.”

The podcast is executive produced for Cream by James Farr and Johnny Kalangis with production support from Wafa Ktaech and Chris Cobain of The Wilders.
