 8 people rated this podcast
Corporate crookedness. Family feuding. Hilariously half-baked decisions. Host Lauren Ober tackles some of the most spectacular business failures of all time, and what could have been done to avoid them. Some of these stories are shocking. Some are funny. Some are just downright sad. But each one will give you a totally new perspective on big business… and big failure. From American Public Media.

I really enjoy this podcast. It is fascinating to hear about the stories behind the rise and fall of business. I've learned quite a bit in the process as well.
I feel like this should be renamed Businesses That Didn't Really Work Out. Look, it's not a bad podcast really, just a little boring sometimes. The first season was pretty good but the second one is a bit of a snooze so far. The only thing keeping it listenable at all is Lauren Ober's infectious personality. Maybe they'll find some better stories next time?
I wanted to like this one. The subject is so interesting! But it is too cute, and kind of short on analysis. Not for me. But if you like the goofier side of Planet Money, you will love this one.
