Spotify has been pushing forward to produce more original podcasts for their platform. Now, they are deep in talks to buy the podcast producers GIMLET Media.
GIMLET Media went on a capital fund raising round in 2017 and was able to raise $70 Million. Spotify is offering to buy the company for $200 Million.
GIMLET has recently began to produce television shows as well. GIMLET turned one of their podcasts, Homecoming into an Amazon Prime show starring Julia Roberts.
