Virgin Atlantic’s First Branded Podcast Tells the Stories Behind Pioneering Entrepreneurs

Like Jonathan Murray, co-creator of The Real World


What do MTV’s The Real World and The Onion have in common? They were both founded by entrepreneurs with visions that paved the way for new industries like reality television and satirical news.

That’s the premise of The Venture, a new branded podcast created by Virgin Atlantic and Gimlet Creative—the advertising arm to podcasting company Gimlet Media. The six-part series launches tomorrow and profiles folks including The Real World co-creator Jonathan Murray; Slim Moon and Portia Sabin, founders of indie record label Kill Rock Stars Records and Los Angeles-based Japanese chef Niki Nakayama.
