Startups often have “creation myths” about their early days. But real life is much messier than that. To prove this, former This American Life producer Alex Blumberg recorded nearly every painstaking moment in creating his new podcasting company, Gimlet Media. With plenty of audio examples, Blumberg highlights the ups and downs of turning your creative art into a business, culminating in a cringe-worthy pitch to a venture capitalist.
“The story that you tell, it’s like you’re killing it all the time,” says Blumberg. “But deep inside every single person who has ever tried to start a business, I’m sure, has had a pitch like that—if not worse.”
