Love it!

I love the host and how she tells the stories. I love the topic and the stories that are chosen. Every episode is riveting.

Fun and informative!

This has quickly become my favorite podcast. I love Lauren’s insight and delivery. She’s a great storyteller who brings a spark to subjects that in other hands could be dry. Cant wait for season 2!

Entertaining - Schadenfreude for business

Very entertaining and witty. Love the sassiness and humor but it’s not a lessons learned type of podcast. Can’t wait for season two. Maybe she’ll cover more “real”spectacular failures like Enron, pets.com, Polaroid, Blockbuster, Lehman Borthers. Real implosions.
