What it’s like to take on venture capital investment

One of my favorite podcasts, recently discovered, is StartUp, by Alex Blumberg, former producer at This American Life. The podcast chronicles the story of starting Gimlet Media, Alex’s new business aimed at creating a network of story-narrative podcasts. “StartUp”, documenting their own story, is Gimlet’s first production, and what’s interesting about this podcast is that Alex records almost all of his conversations along the way, giving us uniquely inside access into the creation of their company.
