What Else Is Matt Lieber?
About This Site:

Firstly if you are here it is probably because you know a little about Matt Lieber. Probably very little. The truth is I don't know much about him either. But I do know this much... Matt Lieber is a long lunch.

All jokes aside. If you have no idea why you are here it is because there is this amazing company, Gimlet Media (@gimletmedia), who run a series of Podcasts. One of these Podcasts is Reply All. A podcast about the internet, hosted by Alex Goldmund (@AGoldmund) and PJ Vogt (@pjvogt). Each week they report, with the help of many of their producers (see here), on aspects of the internet past and present in a very entertaining and insightful manner. I personally am a computer guy by trade but this podcast is for anyone who uses the internet for more than cat pictures.

After weeks of listening and hanging out for new episodes my friends and I started referring to Matt Lieber as things ourselves. We realised that maybe we too have this odd love affair with Matt Lieber just like we feel PJ and Alex do. Even if we have never met him.

So thats why you are here. This site exists for one purpose only. To tell you what you should already know about Matt Lieber. You should already know these thing about Matt cause you should already be listening to ReplyAll.

So checkout the ReplyAll podcast (try a random episode here), and the other Gimlet shows, listen to some Breakmaster Cylinder and show some support for all of the Guys at Gimlet.

Oh and most importantly. Matthew Lieber (@mlieber) had nothing to do with making this website. But I do hope that he gets a laugh out of it.

It was however inspired by Episode 7 "This Website is For Sale". While I was listening. I was buying up the domain & building the site. So.. Thanks for the inspiration.

Enjoy!

Tim.

A Quick note to PJ Vogt:

Hey PJ,

Quick shout out again from Tim & Justine in Sydney.

It was great to have a quick chat with you after your session with Julian Morrow (@julesmorrow) at the Sydney Writers Festival. It was a really enjoyable session and it gave everyone a great insight into how you work and chase down stories. From source to cut to release it was very insightful.

I trust you enjoyed your time in Sydney. Thanks for producing the work you and Alex do with the rest of the Gimlet team. Again pass on our thanks to every one at Gimlet media for enriching our minds and making our commutes that bit more bearable. From ReplyAll through The Mystery show Startup and Surprisingly awesome. You guys keep doing what you love and we will keep listening and sharing.

Maybe one day we might take you up on the offer to visit the Gimlet Studio and meet the team if either of us are in New York. But until then know if you or any of the gimlet crew visit Sydney again, be it for a story or a holiday, we would be happy to show you around sometime.


Just hit us up on twitter any time and we will make it happen. I think we can all agree we are at Yes Yes Yes on this one.

PJ finally while you are awesome and we love you just remember this site is all about Matt Lieber. after all he is Zardulu.. Now thats pretty (surprisingly) awesome.

Let us know what Matt think of the site haha. Peace!

Tim (@timbohiatt) and Justine (@goseeadventure1)
