Gimlet’s Startup Podcast

Gimlet Media is a podcasting network responsible for a number of high quality shows including one of my faviourite podcasts, Reply All.

(A recent episode of Reply All investigates the wild hog crisis in America. It’s hilarious and insane.)

The longest running podcast on Gimlet is a show called Startup, which follows Gimlet’s founder, Alex Bloomberg, as he works to get the network off the ground (meta, he knows).

Alex spent the majority of his working life prior to founding Gimlet as a producer for This American Life, which is a well renound radio show and podcast which centres on compassionate investigative journalism.

Gimlet was Alex’s first foray into entrepreneurship and Startup is a raw display of the struggles, successes and lessons he experienced along the way.
