About Us

Launched in 2015, The Pitch transports listeners behind the closed doors of business deals for an eye-opening glimpse into what it takes to build a startup.


Real entrepreneurs. 
Real investors. Real money.

Each episode follows a hopeful entrepreneur through their business pitch before a panel of prospective investors. But securing funding is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to growing a business: The Pitch is known for digging deep into founders’ stories, and following up with featured startups even after they’ve secured funding.

With accolades in outlets including CNN, Forbes, Inc., Insider, and more, the show reaches an audience of hundreds of thousands of listeners including entrepreneurs and business leaders. The Pitch is hosted by Josh Muccio, who brought the independent podcast to Gimlet in 2017 where they produced over 100 episodes of the show from 2017 to 2020. Then in 2022, after the sale of Gimlet Media to Spotify, Josh purchased The Pitch from Gimlet, took the podcast independent again, and made it available on all platforms

In the fall of 2022, for their first new episode in almost two-years, co-founders Josh and Lisa Muccio pitched the investors on their own show. As part of its comeback, The Pitch joined Vox Media for ad sales and distribution of its new season in February 2023.
