About Without Fail

Any big success requires looking failure in the eye. Without Fail is the new show from Gimlet Media that asks people who have pursued incredible things: What worked? What didn't? And why?

Each week, Gimlet cofounder Alex Blumberg will interview a person who’s taken a big bet and won or lost. He’ll talk to people who’ve risked everything to try something no one’s ever done before, or to try something they never thought they’d achieve. And he’ll interview people who looked like they had it all, only to fail spectacularly. Alex and his guests will share stories and lessons about what’s it’s like to succeed, what’s it’s like to fail, and how to live with the specter of both.

Guests for season one include Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors, Andrew Mason of Groupon, and Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal and Girlboss, among others.
