‘Reply All’ podcast paused amid charges of toxic behavior

The popular “Reply All” podcast has been put on hiatus and is canceling two remaining episodes of a series that explored allegations of structural racism and a problematic work culture at food magazine Bon Appetit. Former employees at Gimlet Media, the podcast’s publisher, charged that two people behind the series had exhibited behavior similar to what they were investigating at Bon Appetit. “Reply All” host Alex Goldman says the series as reported was a mistake and apologized to current and former colleagues, listeners and sources for the Bon Appetit series. Key staffers Sruthi Pinnamaneni and P.J. Vogt have left the podcast but are still at Gimlet.
