Introducing Without Fail

Update: 2018-10-163


Today, the tables have turned. CEO and Gimlet Media founder Alex Blumberg has come to Jonathan’s studio* to ask for Jonathan’s help promoting a brand new podcast. Who’s groveling now, Mr. Blumberg? Why, it’s the Podcast Prince himself! With his new show “Without Fail.” Alex and Jonathan talk about failures--mostly Jonathan’s long personal litany of them. And then they play the first episode of Without Fail, in which Alex interviews Groupon’s founder Andrew Mason. 
*Jonathan’s studio is still technically the property of Gimlet Media and therefore owned by Alex Blumberg

In grade 8, Julia was bullied so badly by a group of girls that she changed schools without telling anyone. Soon after, the girls from her old school showed up at her house and rang her doorbell. She didn’t answer it. For the past 20 years, Julia’s been wondering what those girls wanted.Go to to subscribe to Homecoming and Gimlet's other new podcasts.Our SponsorsHello Fresh - To get $35 off your first week of deliveries visit and enter promo code "HEAVYWEIGHT"Mailchimp – More than 12 million people use MailChimp to connect with their customers, market their products, and grow their businesses every day.Talkspace - Visit or download the app and use promo code “HEAVY” to receive $30 off your first monthWealthsimple – Investing made easy.
