PJ Vogt and Alex Goldman, the hosts of Reply All, discuss their creative partnership and their meteoric rise from WNYC to Gimlet. They also discuss their own worries for the show, the collective work it takes to put out an episode, and finding the sweet spot to maintain their outsider status as they become a part of the mainstream podcasting culture. And just how much hand holding in storytelling is too much hand holding? Brian talks about what it feels like to get De Blasio’d on an episode of Reply All.
