I am very disappointed by the news that Gimlet's work culture is as toxic as the one they were supposedly reporting on. Sorry, Alex, it's not disingenuous, it's hypocrisy. I will be unsubscribing for now. Time will tell if your mea culpa is just words or if they will be followed up by action.

I've enjoyed both Reply All and The Test Kitchen, but don't want to support shows that have a lot of bad behavior going on behind the scenes. Having experienced a few very toxic work environments myself, I know how psychologically damaging it can be when there's no accountability. Glad to hear things are changing at Gimlet because the things I've heard are troubling indeed.

I really hope Gimlet is going to do the work to stop the garage toxicity. I was so disappointed to hear the full story, but at least the unionization went through.

the thing about atrazine being an amphibian endocrine disruptor is more than just a one-time accidental release, there's been a major effort by Syngenta to corrupt EPA officials and cover up the potential ecological harm of atrazine
