Recovering Gleek: A Glee Podcast
The idea for Recovering Gleek came to be after Ian and his friend Lena Conatser had a conversation about how important Glee was to them in their adolescence and how terrible many of the plot points were looking back as adults. First launched in September 2020, Ian and Lena are rewatching Glee episode by episode and coming to terms with their complicated feelings about the TV show.
Recovering Gleek is self produced and self promoted. It has received hundreds of 5 star reviews on apple podcasts and has been streamed hundreds of thousands of times by listeners around the world. The podcast's tiktok account, featuring soundbites from the podcast itself, has gone viral several times over and has accrued nearly 40,000 followers.
