Kevin T. Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe started the Gilmore Guys podcast a little over a year ago with very low expectations, and have since seen their podcast grow beyond anything they could have predicted. Today, Gilmore Guys is part of the podcast network HeadGum and has regular sponsorship. The pair travel to cities across the country to record special, often sold-out live episodes of the show, with 2016 dates in Seattle and Portland happening soon.
Porter, a long-time fan of Gilmore Girls, teams up with Adejuyigbe, a newcomer to the series, to watch one Gilmore Girls episode per podcast. The two then record their re-cap, often with a special guest, offering insight into the actions of much-loved characters of the WB series, which ended its seven-season run in 2007. Netflix recently announced plans to do a limited series revival, a development which prompted the Gilmore Guys to do an emergency episode of the podcast the night the story broke.
