“I can’t wait for the world to know what we already have figured out here at Paper Kite Productions, Kim and Kate give the best and most expensive advice around!” said Amy Poehler. 

“We’re so thrilled to be partnering with Amy and Audacy to make this podcast,” said Kim Lessing and Kate Arend. “It’s a dream come true.  We know it’s rough out there and nothing will change that, except calling us!”

“Following the successful launch of our hilarious, improvised comedy franchise from the brilliant minds of Amy Poehler and Liz Cackowski, we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with Amy and Paper Kite with the launch of ‘Million Dollar Advice,’” said Jenna Weiss-Berman, EVP, Podcasts, Audacy. “Kim and Kate will deliver career advice with wit, wisdom and savvy.” 

“Million Dollar Advice” is Executive Produced by Amy Poehler, Kim Lessing,  Kate Arend, Jenna Weiss-Berman, and Leah Reis-Dennis. It will be produced by the world-class team at Audacy’s Pineapple Street Studios.

The series follows the launch of “Say More with Dr? Sheila” and “The Chris Chatman Do-Over,” the first two shows in a three-season improvised comedy podcast franchise from Audacy and Amy Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions, under the Paper Kite Podcasts banner, parodying and paying homage to popular themes in the podcast space. 

The first installment, “Say More with Dr? Sheila,” stars Poehler as a fictional therapist with questionable methods and credentials. The critically acclaimed series was released in September 2023, hit #1 on the Apple Podcasts comedy chart, and was named by the New York Times as one of the “Best Podcasts of 2023.” The second installment, The Chris Chatman Do-Over, stars Ike Barinholtz as a controversial shock jock striving to improve his reputation, while the third, “Women Talkin’ ‘Bout Murder,” is a true crime satire starring Cackowski and Emily Spivey slated to launch in Spring 2024.
