Customer Reviews


I've been a big fan of other gimlet podcasts, but this one felt different. The hosts have no chemistry with one another and barely seem interested in the topics that they say are "surprisingly awesome". This podcast is a poorly executed manifestation of a Reddit interesting facts thread. Lastly, do we really need more podcasts hosted by upperclass white men? Gimlet can do better.

Surprisingly disappointing....

I've been a huge fan of Adam Davidson (since the "Giant Pool of Money" episode on TAM), and I've been listening to every podcast show that Gimlet has started, BUT this new show didn't work for me, particularly the conversational format of the show since I felt Adam McKay didn't really add anything to the podcast. Rather, I kept losing focus, and, eventually, it became too boring to continue listening....

Lives up to its title

The full-length preview offered to Gimlet Media members was in fact surprisingly awesome. I ended up interested in a topic I was absolutely not interested in.
