GimletFest is the best of Gimlet Media brought to life in a two-day festival. Podcast fans will have the opportunity to connect with one another while checking out live tapings and special events from the teams behind some of Gimlet’s most popular shows. Programming includes: Crimetown (with a special sneak peek at season 2), The Habitat, Heavyweight, The Nod (with special guest Wyatt Cenac), The Pitch, Science Vs, Story Pirates, and the show that started it all, StartUp. In addition, Gimlet’s Alex Blumberg will sit down with special guest Julie Snyder (Serial, S-Town) for an in-depth conversation about storytelling. Gimlet’s Scripted Fiction team (the minds behind Sandra and Homecoming) will also present a live table read of a never-before-heard episode that’s being workshopped to potentially become Gimlet’s next big hit series.
