📰 Podcast News: is this the end of Reply All?
In an ironic twist, Reply All’s new series on racism at the food magazine Bon Appétit has revealed systemic issues at Reply All’s parent network Gimlet that have led to the permanent stepping away of host PJ Vogt, as well as the immediate departure of senior reporter Sruthi Pinnamaneni. PJ and Sruthi were accused of creating a toxic environment and undermining unionizing efforts at Gimlet in a Twitter thread from Eric Eddings, former co-host of The Nod, another Gimlet podcast.
Eric’s thread has sparked more podcasters of color to come forward about their experiences at Gimlet and other podcasts and networks, including Radiolab. It remains to be seen whether this reckoning within the podcasting industry will spark tangible change, but it is inspiring to see so many creators speaking up about their experiences.
