When big news happens, the world tunes in and then moves on. But often the stories we thought were over haven’t really ended; they were the beginning of something else. Undone is a new show from Gimlet Media that digs up the surprising things that happened when we weren’t looking.

Love the curiosity, and gracious yet challenging reporting. Can't wait for more.
Looking forward to more
Thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. The backstory of an event I knew very little about, the death of disco and birth of house. The story and interviews were engaging and showed unexpected angles of the evens. Cant wait for future episodes, keep them coming!
Great first episode
Fantastic first episode. This is exactly the kind of thing that I enjoy listening to, especially the historical angle. BTW, I am one of the thousands of Gimlet fans that signed up when it was a placeholder because I have faith in Gimlet to produce good content. I would have done the same for a new show from Panoply, Radiotopia, or The Ringer. Those commenters who bashed the show without giving it a shot might want to read up on how Apple's podcast algorithm works. Shows from popular networks always jump to the top because the volume of new subscribers over a short period of time gives them a boost. They level off over time, and eventually the shows with the largest number of listeners return to the top (i.e. This American Life). Basically, shows that are trending get a boost. Content providers do not need to pay Apple to get this boost.
