About Alex Blumberg

Prior to This American Life, he worked as a freelance radio reporter, contributing to This American Life, the Savvy Traveller and Chicago Public Radio. In 2008 he collaborated with National Public Radio economics correspondent Adam Davidson to co-host the Planet Money podcast.

In August 2014, Blumberg started Gimlet Media, a podcasting company, along with Matthew Lieber. Blumberg documented the startup process of launching Gimlet Media in the first season of a podcast called StartUp. The second season followed “Dating Ring”, another startup company, and recently StartUp returned for a mini-series featuring Blumberg and other employees.

Along with StartUp, Gimlet Media has three additional shows: Mystery Show, Surprisingly Awesome, and Reply All. The company raised $1.5 million in seed funding from various investors and firms, as well as listeners of its shows to help raise the last $200,000 through crowdfunding platform Alphaworks.

Blumberg also won the George Polk Award in Radio Reporting for his reporting with Adam Davidson for a May 2008 show titled “The Giant Pool of Money”. The piece explained the highly complex chain of events that led to the subprime mortgage crisis by showcasing interviews with participants at each sector of the crisis. The episode was linked widely in the blogosphere and remains one of the show’s most-downloaded podcasts. (via Wikipedia)

  11. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my search for something relating to this.|

  12. Thousand Lakes Realty M4 Ranch Group Has Lakefront Property for Sale Today There are a lot of factors driving buyers to northern Wisconsin properties. Historically low interest rates are enticing buyers across the country. The COVID-19 pandemic and remote work options are allowing more people to live farther away from urban centers. Less travel has led some to buy vacation homes closer to their full-time residence. The entry-level Tahoe lakefront home is typically located on a smaller lot,  located within close proximity to the highway, and often have lower water depths.  These lakefronts are a great way to get into the Lake Tahoe lakefront real estate market. These Tahoe properties offer a lakefront location, great views, and access to lake activities/sports.  Easy winter access at a more affordable price makes these homes very attractive to Tahoe buyers.  Although considered entry-level, these homes have pricing that starts around $2M. http://rylanqjap542197.uzblog.net/trulia-for-sale-near-me-20270930 Click a home model to view the floorplan: Please enable Cookies and reload the page.

  13. Before shopping for a piece of land, you should develop a general idea of where you’d like to make a purchase. You can go for an exploratory drive and use online resources to help you. For example, if you’re buying a few acres of land to build a house you’ll likely want to consider things like access to schools, your job, grocery shopping and restaurants. (Later we’ll delve into specific land concerns.) 1,200 SF, $13 PSF (Annual) Arizona Department of Transportation The economic value of your land hinges on what the highest revenue-generating use of your land is. If you’re a farmer, you probably have a good feel for what you can earn from that. That sets an anchor for any lease offer a developer makes to you—they have to match or beat it for you to consider leasing your land to them. A good developer will do their research on properties in your area and make you an informed offer accordingly. http://legendendertechnik.de/community/profile/linohodge153236/ Copyright © 2020 Indigo River Tiny Homes – All Rights Reserved.
