I'll support you no matter what you need to do, i get that your have to stand up for what's currently important to you. reply all had literaly helped me manage my depression some years ago and for that i'll stay eternally grateful. i hope you don't think that your work back than wasn't important enough, to me this podcast was like a home, i loved the stories about privacy, death and absurdity of this new world this whole situations is wierd to me. maybe cause i'm not from the us? PJ leaving not because he was racist or unethical, but because he didn't support a union feels so bizzare. Is everyone supposed to actively contribute to any organisation or cause, if it promises more social justice?? also, you guys got soo specificaly us-centric in your stories , mix it up a bit, i beg you

It's a real shame for it to end like this. I get that there were some very important issues that needed to be addressed, but what has now taken place is way beyond appropirate or proportionate. As a listener its deeply disappointing to hear the real issues and their effects subsumed by the blatant opportunism of those prepared to exploit pseudo moralistic stances for their own purposes. The whole thing has been conducted through soviet esc political denouncements, show trials on twitter and gleeful schadenfreude. I don't believe for one moment, that any of the people or issues you purport to care about, have at all been ultimately supported by anything you have said or done. I hope, from this distant perspective, I have called it wrong and I am missing some important detail that would somehow change what is on show here. You are certainly right that as a listener I have been failed by Gimlet. I sincerely hope that future episodes better reflect the Reply All, Gimlet and most importantly the people who made them something I trusted, enjoyed and admired.

All the way on this side of the world I don't think the "test kitchen cluster f#@k" had anything like the impact it had over there. It was an internet story and that's all. Maybe that's part of the reason I'm hoping "reply all" can recover. I thought PJ was fantastic as a co-host,/reporter and his long friendship with Alex made for entertaining banter that often made me laugh out loud. I guess now though my attitude is more one of hoping the new show will be a different type of great entertainment. I love podcasts and am finding that the ones I can rely on month after month are dwindling so I've got my fingers crossed that "reply all" can recover, flourish and around stick around.

Should've stuck with non-political, fun content instead of going "woke" and "cancel-culture" huh? You'd still be around. You guys destroyed yourselves to try and push your liberal, snowflake agenda. Look where that got you.

Fingers crossed they can put out this dumpster fire. June 10 will be the day they either jump the shark or spin off a “Joanie loves Chachi”. Neither path is very good……

I started listening to this show over 5 years ago because it filled a need I didn't know I had for a comical story-telling tech podcast. Sure, like any sitcom, they'd periodically have a serious episode, but generally, they stuck to the same formula that made them successful. In the past year or so, that has changed, shifting to more serious journalism, with little banter, chemistry, or fun. After "The Test Kitchen" episodes and the latest "Revisited" episode, it's clear that they will continue to move away from the format I enjoyed. It's simply not the same show anymore, and I'll miss the light-hearted coverage of tech topics. Goodbye old friends and best wishes for the future. Can anyone recommend a funny tech story-telling podcast?

in case you wondering what the apology is a out at the beginning. The female host of this episode and PJ (one of the other hosts) were apparently hypocritical because they were called out for promoting and supporting the same work environment at Gimlet (the Reply All producing company) as the Bon Appetit magazine they are criticizing here in this episode. This girl host and PJ are no longer with Reply All. it's too bad, PJ was pretty cool. anyways, there you go!
