The founders of WeWork thought they were on the brink of making history. The company was valued at $47 billion dollars, ready for a huge IPO, and its charismatic CEO Adam Neumann believed he was going to change the world. Adam and his wife Rebekah had a prophet-like vision—but did it ever match the company's reality? Now the inspiration for a new AppleTV+ series starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway, WeCrashed: The Director’s Cut is a complete refresh of our original six-part series. Hosted by David Brown of the hit podcast Business Wars, this six-part series includes new interviews and new discoveries about the rise and fall of WeWork. It’s a story of hope and hubris, big money and bigger screwups, and the lengths people will go to chase “unicorns".

It's a pretty shallow dive (in that it doesn't go very deep into analysis, as another commenter has said) into the founding and failure of the WeWork brand. There's an element of schadenfreude about it, as it is a story of maximum hubris, and while I think the production could have been more stark and the style more authentic, it was entertaining, which I think as the intent.
I binge-listened this series. First of all, I like the fact that there are podcasts that have a limited amount of episodes. Story told, done! Here the story is told, mostly I feel, by just going over the timeline of the company. What kept me wondering after this series is 'How could this all happen in plain sight?'. Journalists, investors, banks, celebrities, tv-shows, lawmakers, auditors, ... what are the processes that makes it non of the mentioned rang the alarmbel any sooner? This should be a follow-up of this series!
Super interesting insight into the world and creator of WeWork. If you care about how that went down at all, a must listen.
