How Sorted Works – GRILLED

Most of our viewers probs know us best for our YouTube channel but over the last couple of years, Sorted has been growing internally as a business as well. Behind the scenes of Sorted, each of the four founding guys have some kind of ‘specialities’ (we use the term loosely so they don’t get too big headed)

You guys really love ‘Grilled’ and we thought we could take it a step further and tell you exactly what goes on in a given day at the Sorted studio. Expect a lot of transparency as well as the usual top bants as you discover how much truth is behind our videos and if Jamie’s really that annoying. Spoiler – he is.

Hope ya like it! x

“This wasn’t him being a bit of a d***…it was just a prank”

    Is there going to be a grilled episode about what James does as we know he is the development chef but it would be nice to hear about what that means day to day as it must change depending on the content (type of video or book recipes). By the way I love this series, it’s excellent to hear how sorted is ran and it’s easy to listen to on the bus on the way to uni

      Yes I agree!! Would love to have one of these for James! Would also love to see him more in videos 🙂

    I’m really enjoying hearing you guys talk about yourselves and your work – thanks for sharing. The five of you are really talented in such different and yet completely complementary ways, and I think this is part of the secret of your success. The other part is how intelligent and eloquent you are, something which really strikes me in the podcasts. Please don’t leave Mike and James just doing behind the scenes roles as they’re both amazing in the videos!

    This series has helped me to appreciate everything that the Sorted team does even more than before. I’ve always kind of known that Barry’s the creative force behind a lot what goes on at Sorted but not to the extent that was shared in the podcast. Looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next!

    Super interesting! I’ve been following you for years and seen how you’ve evolved. Understanding what goes behind the scenes, how you think about business, about future developments, growth, as well as details on how to be on camera (thinking about Ben’s ability to focus on what matters) gives even more depth to what you do! Thank you for this, it’s a delight to listen to.

    Love this series, thanks for giving us a peak into the behind the scenes with you guys! And definitely keep those post-work beers flowing 😉

    Given that Barry is the person to “Get things started” (his words), I’d like to see him as the first person in a Pass It On and see what happens!!

    This is such an enjoyable series. You guys are being SO honest and it’s endearing. Felt all warm and fuzzy listening to Barry’s episode especially! Good job y’all!

    I love you guys! I’m in U.S. I’m just really figuring out how to listen to this pod. It doesn’t go to my podcast App. Think I can listen in the car on my commute. Thank you for making my day

In todays podcast BARRY fact checked BEN. Yes, that’s right. BAZ knew something that Ben DIDN’T! We never thought we’d see the day. Also, can we send some good vibes to Mike for his wedding cake challenge?
