Upvoted by Reddit

Every day, hundreds of thousands of votes are cast across thousands of communities on reddit. reddit propels people and ideas to an audience of millions. We created this podcast so we can delve deeper and go beyond those upvotes -- to learn more about the stories that hit our frontpages and left a lasting impression. Hopefully, we’ll gain further insight into ourselves as well as the communities we love that make reddit so special.
