Really doing great

I'm a huge fan of Gimlet so was super excited when this first came out. I wasn't sold on the first couple of episodes but it's really come a long way. Love the range of guests you've had on the show and think the way each clip is centred around an overall theme is a fantastic idea. Great way to discover new podcasts and am keen to see how the show grows! Keep up the good work!

For podcast fanatics

For the past few years I've almost exclusively been listening to podcasts as my main form of entertainment while travelling and relaxing. Brittany does a fantastic job at highlighting special moments from podcasts and I know and love and shines the light on some new gems. Another hit from gimlet.

Don't be fooled. This is a top Gimlet podcast

At first, sceptical around the podcast subject. Now completely hooked, listening to episodes back to back. Gimlet are yet to disappoint. And this podcast won't either. Hot sauce.
