A show where real entrepreneurs pitch to real investors—for real money. In each episode, we take you behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line. The Pitch delivers on the high-stakes promise of a live pitch without shying away from the nitty gritty details of what happens after everyone shakes hands and walks out of the room. Hosted by Josh Muccio from Gimlet Media.

The Real Stuff
The Pitch is like ABC’s Shark Tank. But as a podcast. With actual companies. And with REAL investors who provide more feedback than “I’m just not feeling it” (looking at you, Lori).
But seriously, this podcast is awesome. My only qualm is that the episodes are too short. 15-20 minutes isn’t enough to fit an entire pitch plus responses from multiple investors. Should be twice as long IMO. Regardless, The Pitch is by FAR my favorite podcast currently.
In the startup podcast category there are some greats, a16z, Product Hunt, Y Combinator, Startup School Radio, but this show is my all time favorite. Short episodes get right to the point and always entertain. I listen to episodes of The Pitch before any other shows and often I listen to episodes more than once. Thanks Josh & Sheel for putting this show together. I'm a fan!
Founders, this is a must-listen
