Show Notes

The Story


Growth. It can be exciting, it can be motivating, and it can be really stressful. In this week’s episode, we take a look at the tensions that Gimlet’s growth spurt is creating.

We speak with the team producing one of our upcoming shows to see what it’s really like to build a podcast from the ground up. Each of them is being asked to step up to the plate in a way that they never have before, and some are realizing that the support they expected, it just isn’t there.

People are pushed to their limits, emotions run high, and things that have remained hitherto unsaid are finally aired.

Our theme song was written and performed by Mark Phillips.
