Reply All is an American podcast from Gimlet Media,[2][1] hosted by PJ Vogt and Alex Goldman.[3] The show features stories about how people shape the internet, and how the internet shapes people.[4] Vogt and Goldman previously hosted the technology and culture podcast TLDR for WNYC. Producers include Phia Bennin, Tim Howard, Damiano Marchetti, and Sruthi Pinnamaneni.[5] The music is by Breakmaster Cylinder.[6]

Reply All premiered November 24, 2014,[7][8] the second podcast to be developed by Gimlet Media. It was a 2016 Webby Nominee for Best Podcast.[9]

Format[edit]

Each episode varies in format, with some recurring segments, including "Yes, Yes, No", in which Vogt and Goldman explain internet trivia to Alex Blumberg, co-founder of Gimlet Media, with occasional help from outside guests.[10] In a variation on this segment called "Sports, Sports, Sports", Blumberg instead explains sports-related tweets to Vogt and Goldman. The segment debuted in Episode #106, "Is that You, KD?".[11] In another recurring segment, called "Super Tech Support", the Reply All team—particularly Goldman, who previously worked as a network administrator[12]—take on odd or especially complex tech support issues that the listeners or friends of the hosts have encountered.
