Off to an excellent start
Don't let the term "branded podcast" put you off. This is Gimlet through and through. This podcast is very reminiscent of StartUp, but with more of a "how to" focus on starting a business. I found it fascinating to listen to, and I can't wait to hear more episodes. Also, a big perk of the branded podcast is that there are no ads, since the whole thing is being funded by eBay. Seriously guys, give this one a chance. If you are a fan of Gimlet's other shows (particularly StartUp), this will be right up your alley.
Sounds like a bunch of great stories!
Based on the trailer, it sounds like there are going to be some really great stories. Can't wait to hear the full versions, especially the one about brands and how to think about them in the marketplace.
So excited for this
Can't wait for this show. Big fan of StartUp & this looks similar but even more focused on small business.
