But in the early morning hours of August 4, 2019, a gunman opened fire at a downtown bar in the city, and Nan Whaley’s role as mayor immediately shifted. She found herself thrust into the national spotlight as all eyes turned to Dayton. And it wasn't long before she was face-to-face with President Donald Trump.

    Alex Talks to Cycling Whistleblower Jonathan Vaughters

    Jonathan Vaughters was a member of the famed USPS pro cycling team when his teammate Lance Armstrong won the first of a record-breaking seven straight Tours de France. While fans were awed and inspired by the victories, Jonathan knew there was something else fueling those wins: performance enhancing drugs — something the entire team was using, including himself. The deception weighed heavy on his conscience, and Jonathan found himself at a crossroads: live with the lie or come clean and become a traitor to his friends, colleagues, and the most powerful man in cycling, Lance Armstrong.

    Alex Talks to Country Songwriter Shane McAnally

    Ever since he was young, Shane McAnally knew he wanted to be a country music star. But as a gay man, he didn’t fit the Nashville mold, and so he hid his true identity for years as he struggled to break through. Little did he know that coming out would prove the key to his success.

Great!

I like it a lot! Not surprising since I was never disappointed by a Gimlet podcast. Good production and story telling, this time about how it is to create and run a company.

Zzzzzz

I used to LOVE startup but it has been going slowly downhill... This latest season sounds like one big ad for amazon prime. Which would not be so bad—they did set the standard for great podcast advertising—if it weren’t so boring. Thank goodness for reply all and heavyweight that are still knocking it out of the park. Maybe too formulaic?
