Jess interviews journalist Rich Juzwiak, senior writer at Jezebel and advice columnist at Slate. Rich takes us inside the culture at GAWKER, the epicenter for Manhattan media news and gossip at which he was a senior writer from 2012-2016. Gawker began as small blog founded in 2002, which grew into a full-fledged media company, before going bankrupt thanks to a $140 million legal judgement. We go deep on: the infamous parties, Gawker Stalker, the controversial posts, the outings and the shutdown. We also cover two of Juzwiak’s fave topics: The Drew Barrymore Show and Mariah Carey.
