WATCH: Podcast Pitch Night Recap. Plus, Our Winners!

 

Our first annual Podcast Pitch Night was a smashing success!

The evening was hosted by brilliant Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings from Gimlet Media’s buzziest new podcast, THE NOD. In addition to their hosting duties, Brittany and Eric took us through how THE NOD transformed from a rough pilot sketch to a polished, finished episode for Gimlet.
