Casting Call is like a Hollywood singing competition, but for people who are pros at audio interviews and non-fiction storytelling. On the show, an esteemed panel of judges will join host Jonathan Goldstein to vet submissions from aspiring podcast hosts across the country, and select three finalists to travel to Gimlet HQ to make a pilot of their show. One talented hopeful will have their pilot turned into a mini-series, produced by Gimlet, and maybe even get a Squarespace sponsorship of their own -- the pinnacle of podcast fame.

All of the glory and the drama of the competition will be documented for listeners to hear. Expect a behind-the-scenes look at the weird and wonderful world of podcasting. You’ll learn what makes a good host and how entertaining shows get made.

So, where is the winning podcast?

Did she take the money and run?

What happened to MLM?!

Pretty bummed that the topic of multi-level marketing (which most of us voted for) isn’t even going to be in the podcast we’ve been waiting for all this time. It makes me wonder how the other contestants feel. I’m definitely not interested in self-help but will certainly give the show a listen and re-visit my review.
