Lizz Warner is the Founder & CEO of Gleam, a video-based dating app making it easier to meet your matches. Prior to Gleam, Lizz spent 6 years as a producer at BuzzFeed where she created the hit travel franchise Bring Me! She also worked with Snapchat and NBC as a video producer for the 2016 and 2018 Olympics, and more recently she served as an executive producer and digital content adviser for Biden for President.

In this episode, Lizz and I discuss how video chat is revolutionizing online dating. Given the difficulty with in-person meetups during the pandemic, singles are turning to video calls as a way to meet new matches. Perhaps this signals the next platform shift, after web-based dating sites disrupted traditional matchmakers, only to later be upended by mobile apps. Finally, Lizz predicts that social networks may ultimately become better matchmakers than dedicated dating apps, and we explore the rebellion against the so-called “Instagram aesthetic” as some influencers abandon the cult of perfection traditionally cultivated on social platforms.
