"Gossip (hello, great name) will satisfy any fan of the titular concept: It's about three friends who meet weekly to tattle and flip out over the latest developments in their suburban town, Golden Acres." - Elle

"Gossip is devised as a soap opera and promises Desperate Housewives-style intrigue that you can dip in and out of." - The Guardian

New York Times bestselling author Allison Raskin's new scripted podcast, Gossip, is out today from Stitcher/Midroll and is available on Apple Podcasts and other podcatchers. Gossip centers on three unlikely female friends: Valerie (Victoria Rowell), Mia (Amanda Perez), and Bethany (Allison Raskin). Each week, they meet at the Golden Cup Coffee Corner to drink coffee and share the latest gossip floating around their not-so-traditional suburban town, Golden Acres. When the juicy stories involve infidelity, secret pasts, and murder, does it even matter if the rumors are true? Each episode will also feature an accompanying comic from New Yorker artists such as Amy Kurzweil, Sofia Warren, Hilary Campbell, and more.

Episode 1: "Poly Employers"

Cartoon by Amy Kurzweil:

Mia’s employers open their marriage. Bethany’s new boss might be a serial killer. And Valerie has an opinion about everything. Plus Hot Goss featuring Alexis G. Zall!

Episode 2: "Meth Airbnb"

Cartoon by Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell:

An AirBnb horror story. Plus Valerie has “invisible hives.” If you can believe such a thing. Plus Hot Goss featuring Amanda Perez!
