When internships open, we post them on our careers page and our social accounts. Keep an eye out for those. Our internships don’t always align with the academic year; they’re full-time and last anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on the team. Oh, and they’re paid!

International: We’re able to consider candidates with prior US work authorization.

Remote / outside of NYC: This depends on the position. At the bottom of each job posting, you’ll see some information around whether or not the position is based out of NYC.  

Gimlet Media is a for-profit organization and is unable to accept donations. However, the best  alternative is becoming a member—  keep reading to learn more about that!

Becoming a Member

1. If I don’t subscribe, can I still listen to Gimlet Media shows for free?

Yes!  Our shows will continue to be available, for free, wherever you get your podcasts.

2. Can I give a gift subscription?

If you’d simply like to gift a t-shirt, as an annual member, you can have your t-shirt sent anywhere, including to someone else’s address. Just fill in the t-shirt order form with that person’s name and address.

If you’d like to gift an entire membership (with website access), you can sort of do this, by first purchasing the membership under your name, and then transferring the details:

  1. Go to the Gimlet Media webpage and sign in to the Membership Area.
  2. On the right, under “My account,” click “Account settings.”
  3. In the pop-up box, change the name and email to the recipient’s name and email and click “Update your profile.” Since you’ll have to send him/her the password separately, you may want to also create a new temporary password for him/her.

Please also note:

  1. The recipient will not receive a welcome email from Gimlet (that’s automatically triggered to send to you when you first purchase it).
  2. You may want to turn off auto-renew, so that you are only charged for one payment cycle. To do so, in the Account settings pop-up, select “Subscriptions” then “Turn off auto-renew.” Unless, of course, you want to keep giving them the gift of a Gimlet membership into perpetuity!
  3. If you are gifting the annual membership, the recipient is entitled to a free shirt! As long as you don’t order one when prompted by the welcome email, he/she will be able to log in and click the link that says, “Claim my t-shirt.”
  4. The recipient will not have access to your credit card information. Don’t worry!

3. What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept credit and debit cards from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club. Any prepaid cards from these companies will also work. Unfortunately, we do not accept PayPal payments.

4. Do members get access to ad-free versions of the podcasts?

At this time, all of our podcasts continue to have ads.

1. How do I sign in to my Gimlet Membership account?

Go to gimletmedia.com, and you’ll find a Login button on the upper right hand corner of the page.

2. What payment processor do you use? Do you store my credit card details?

We use Stripe to process payments for memberships. Gimlet itself does not have access to your full credit card details at any time.

3. How can I change the credit card associated with my account?

To change your payment method, login to the Member area on our site. On the right, you will see the “My Account” box. Click the first link, which says: “Change the credit card on my account.” You can save your new card details there.

4. How can I change the email associated with my account?

Login to the Member area on our site. On the right, under “My Account,” click “Account settings.” You can update your contact information there.

5. How do I renew my Gimlet Membership?

It’s automatic. Monthly memberships will renew every month, and annual members once a year.

6. How do I turn off auto-renew?

  1. Go to the Gimlet Media webpage and log in to the Membership Area.
  2. On the right, under “My Account,” click “Account settings.”
  3. Toggle to the “Subscriptions” tab and click “Turn off auto-renewal.”

7. How do I cancel my membership?

To cancel your membership, you can turn off the auto-renewal, as per the instructions above. This means you will not be charged for your next billing cycle. We are unable to issue returns for memberships.

8. How do I upgrade or downgrade from a monthly to an annual membership, or vice versa?

  1. Go to the Gimlet Media webpage and sign in to the Membership Area.
  2. On the right, under “My account,” click “Account settings.”
  3. Toggle to the “Subscriptions” tab and click “Change plan.” Your card will be charged a prorated amount, depending on whether you are upgrading or downgrading your subscription.

9. Where can I find the members only stuff, like pre-release shows and other goodies?

Every time we post members-only content, we’ll email you a link, so you know we’ve released something new! You can also find member content by clicking the sign in button on gimletmedia.com and browsing through past posts. We try and post pre-release shows and other content every few months.

10. Can I listen to the pre-release pilots in my podcast app?

No— currently the pre-release pilots are available for download and streaming on the membership section of our website which is mobile friendly. At the moment, they are not available as an RSS feed, so can’t be directly plugged into your podcast app.

11. I have another membership question!  Who should I email?

Email members@gimletmedia.com, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

T-shirt Questions

1. How can I get a Gimlet t-shirt?

Right now, we don’t sell our t-shirts individually. But you can get one by signing up for our annual membership.

2. Can I choose a specific t-shirt and size?

Yes! Once you sign up for an annual membership, you’ll be automatically navigated to the Members Area, where there will be a t-shirt order form to indicate your preferred t-shirt style and size, along with your shipping address. So don’t worry– you’ll get to choose exactly what you want!

3. Can I have a t-shirt shipped internationally?

We ship t-shirts internationally, to most countries. Please just allow an additional 2-3 weeks for delivery. There are some places we don’t ship: here’s a list.

4. What if I’m moving to a new house? How do I make sure that my t-shirt arrives at the right place?

Please email our fulfillment center at tshirthelp@gimletmedia.com with your name, move date, and your two addresses (old and new).

5. I signed up for an annual membership, but my t-shirt hasn’t arrived yet.  How can I track its progress?

Please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery of your t-shirt. (Thank for your patience!) If it’s been more than 6 weeks since you placed your order, email our fulfillment center at tshirthelp@gimletmedia.com with your name, the size/style of the shirt you selected, and your address, and someone will get it sorted for you ASAP.

6. I don’t really want a t-shirt. Can I have other swag instead?

Currently the only Gimlet swag we offer online are t-shirts. If you would not like a t-shirt, you can choose not to fill out the order form in the members portal after you sign in or you can gift the t-shirt to a friend.

7. I have a t-shirt question not answered here! Who should I contact?

You can contact our t-shirt fulfillment and distribution team at: tshirthelp@gimletmedia.com.
