Arlan and Backstage are the subject of Season 7 of Gimlet Media’s podcast StartUp. Fair warning: there will be spoilers for the episode discussed, so go listen to the episode before listening to the reaction! We’ll be recording our reactions to each StartUp episode as they’re released so you can get our take on what really happened and how we felt about it.
In this reaction to StartUp Season 7 Episode 2, we go deep-er into VCs squandering privilege, the myth of meritocracy, the psychological toll of being underestimated, and so much more. We also keep it silly, going as far as to suggest Gimlet Producer Amy Standen creates a reaction to our reaction episodes. 💫
