What’s in a (household) name?

Cannot comment on its smell, but this podcast sure sounds sweet. Thoughtful, surprising stories about both brands you thought you knew about and the ones you didn’t care about.

The episode on ‘gangs’ at Disneyland is particularly great. Also the Frappuccino episode. Really all the episodes. This show will give you ‘fun facts’ for the bar for years. Now let me tell you about how Ikea names its products...

Interesting background of famous companies

Only finished episode 2 but the second is as good as the first. Already on my regular listening list. Access to interesting people giving background information and stories. Style similar to Adam Grant TED Work Life podcasts which is a compliment in my book.
