Gimlet Media LLC is a digital media company and podcast network, focused on producing narrative podcasts and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. The company was founded in 2014 by Alex Blumberg and Matthew Lieber, who served as the company's CEO and president respectively until Lieber stepped down in 2022. In February 2019, Spotify announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Gimlet for $230 million.[1][2] In 2023, Spotify announced that they were to merge Gimlet and Parcast into Spotify Studios.


Gimlet was founded in August 2014 with the launch of its flagship podcast StartUp hosted by Alex Blumberg. Originally billed as the American Podcasting Corporation (APC), Blumberg was eventually convinced to change the company's name. After working with Lexicon Branding, Blumberg and Lieber chose the name Gimlet Media.[3]

The company raised $1.5 million in seed funding at a $10 million valuation.[4] After raising most of its initial capital from investment firms Betaworks, Lowercase Capital, and Knight Enterprise Fund, Gimlet invited the listeners of its shows to help raise the last $200,000 through equity crowdfunding.[5] The company was estimated to bring in $2 million in advertising revenue in 2015.[6] In December 2015, Gimlet closed a Series A round of funding that raised $6 million at a $30 million valuation.[7]

In July 2015, Gimlet announced it would add the option to pay for membership, a decision motivated by a desire to diversify revenue streams to include more than advertising. Members were given early access to pilots for new Gimlet shows, a Gimlet T-shirt, and access to the company's Slack channel.[8] Gimlet then hired Blumberg's spouse and former Rachel Maddow Show producer Nazanin Rafsanjani to explore other ways to diversify the company's revenue.[5] Rafsanjani spearheads Gimlet Creative, a wing of the company that "creates highly produced narrative audio in partnership with brands."[9][10]

On August 2, 2017, Gimlet announced it closed a $15 million Series B investment round, led by Stripes Group.[11] Emerson Collective, Graham Holdings, Betaworks, and Cross Culture Investors also contributed to the round.[12] In September 2017, British advertising firm WPP announced it was investing $5 million in Gimlet for a minority stake in the company.[13][14]

On February 6, 2019, Spotify announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Gimlet for $230 million.[15][16] In the summer of 2022, Lieber left his role as president but remained an advisor to Spotify.[17] In November 2022, Alex Blumberg also departed Gimlet and Spotify.[18] On June 5, 2023, Spotify sent a memo to staff announcing that Gimlet will be merged with Parcast into a single Spotify Studios division, as part of a restructuring that also included the elimination of 200 jobs.[19]


Former Reply All host PJ Vogt recording at Gimlet Media Office

Alex Blumberg, a radio journalist, producer for This American Life, and co-founder of Planet Money, came up with the idea of a for-profit podcast network after the success of a T-shirt fundraising campaign for Planet Money. He chose to document the foundation of Gimlet in the first season of StartUp, the company's first show.[20]

Gimlet's co-founder, Matthew Lieber, holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management, is a former radio producer at WNYC, and worked as a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group.

Lydia Polgreen was managing director until she left for The New York Times.[17]

In October 2020, Emmanuel Dzotsi joined as the third co-host.

In February 2021, former Gimlet producer Eric Eddings revealed in a Twitter thread that Vogt and Reply All producer Sruthi Pinnamaneni had opposed staff unionization efforts and contributed to a "toxic culture" at the show, particularly for staffers of color.[76] Vogt apologized and has permanently left the show.[77] Pinnamaneni has apologized[78] and is on hiatus with the show. Both Goldman and Dzotsi left the show in 2022, and a final regular episode was released on June 23.

On October 5, 2016, Ward announced at the beginning of season 1 episode 22 that Davidson and McKay had left the podcast. In episode 23 on January 19, 2017, Ward announced that she would be moving on to another Gimlet project and the show was then replaced by Flora Lichtman's Every Little Thing.

The show was announced on December 5, with the first season debuting on December 16, 2016.[29] Featured individuals included Abbi Jacobson of Broad City, Ted Allen of the Food Network and writer Dan Savage.[89] On June 16, 2017, Gimlet announced that no new episodes would be produced beyond a series finale released that same day.[90]

Anchored by Mogul producer Eric Eddings and former Sampler host Brittany Luse, The Nod premiered in July 2017, supplanting their former self-produced For Colored Nerds podcast.[94] The Nod ended in early 2020 due to Eddings and Luse moving to a new daily short form show on Quibi also entitled "The Nod".[95]

Gimlet Pictures

Gimlet Pictures was created in 2017 as a new business group of Gimlet Media, specifically focusing on adaptation of Gimlet's Podcast content into Television, Movies, and other visual platforms. The explosive growth of podcasts as a medium has created opportunities to adapt and license that content for other platforms.[133]


In 2018, Gimlet announced their creation of a festival, called GimletFest. The first annual GimletFest took place on June 16–17 in Brooklyn, New York,[134] and featured live podcast shows and panels with podcast hosts.[135]
