The Story

In honor of the release of the TV show Alex, Inc., we’re binge dropping episodes of StartUp—the podcast that started it all—along with brand-new after shows. These are the best episodes about Gimlet, as chosen by our listeners. The fourth is: We Made a Mistake.

Gimlet Media makes a mistake—one that plunges the young company into the center of an internet controversy. In the after show, Alex takes one last listener call, and is challenged by one of his producers.

The Facts

Andrew Dunn mixed the episode. 

Mark Phillips wrote and performed our original theme song. 

Build Buildings wrote and performed our special ad music.

The original episode was mixed by Mark Philips and featured music by Mark Philips and Build Buildings.
